15 Recycling Solutions from IKEA

We hadn't really thought of IKEA's Trofast system as something to use outside of a kid's room until a reader mentioned repurposing it as a recycling station. Since then, we've noticed lots of different recycling ideas within the IKEA catalog, some of them obvious and some not so much... FIRST ROW1 The Trofast Storage System comes in multiple combinations (this one is $62). • 2 The Skrin Box with Lid ($15) is an attractive solution. • 3 Slugis Boxes ($3 - $17) are basic plastic bins in a range of sizes and depths. • 4 The Knodd Bin with Lid ($25) is a classic metal wastebasket. • 5 The Rationell Recycling Bin ($10) is designed to fit inside a kitchen cabinet. SECOND ROW6 The Sortera Box ($9) has a folding lid so that you can open it while stacked. • 7 The Snack Box ($20) would look good in a row, with casters added to the bottom. • 8 Turned upside-down, the Evert Stool ($5) is a colorful recycling bin. • 9 The Fibbe Bin with Lid ($14.99) is a good small-space model. • 10 The Andy Drawer Unit on Casters ($25) is an office item that could be repurposed as a recycling station. THIRD ROW11 Plastic Dimpa Bags ($1.50 each) are washable and reusable. • 12 The Fniss Wastebasket ($1.99) is cheap enough to buy as many as you need. • 13 Rill Casters ($10 for 4 pack) can be used to create rolling bins. • 14 The Vessla Storage Crate ($5.99) comes with built-in casters. • 15 If you need a place to hide your bins or bags, the Apa Storage Box is just $15.
