I am planning out my new Adel White kitchen. I want to incorporate storage for kitchen trash & recycling ideally under one of the cabinets (most likely a pull-out cabinet.)
Can anyone offer any tips on practical solutions for trash/recycling storage options?
Don't know if this is an option, but Pollyq's kitchen has a recycle chute that disposes recyclables in the garage. If it won't work for you, at least it's an inspiration. Here's the link: Picasa Web Albums - Pollyq - Kitchen Renov...
My sister is using a 15" tall pantry pullout for garbage and recycling. The different cans etc. go in small blue bins that fit the pullouts perfectly. The paper and cardboard go on the bottom behind the garbage in tall skinny blue bins. These tall bins are meant for paper-type recylcing on the back of cabinet drawers. They have 2 screw holes for mounting. A cool idea. We got them all at Home Depot.
I can’t believe I’ve been on this forum this long and have never seen this chute! I *love* it! I *have* to show
. He currently has the garage wall open because he is recessing our standard fridge so it will look counter depth and we haven’t put up the back splash yet… Hmmmmm…
I also love Dulci’s extra 3.5 inches of drawer space below the sink! I’ve seen Dulci’s pullouts – but I never realized they were different. Did I miss something somewhere? My below sink trash pullouts are one of my favorite things in my new kitchen – but an extra 3.5 inches would have been Great! :-)
DH usually means Dear Husband (or, pick your own adjective starting with D).
That corner unit looks great. Corners are just not that great, but that might be great use of a corner. But I'd like to see the cans maxed out in size. There still looks like there is tons of clearance around the sides. Why don't manufacturers learn that we want to make the most out of every possible cubic inch of space?!
