13 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 Slugis Boxes ($3 - $17) are basic plastic bins in a range of sizes and depths. • 3 The Knodd Bin with Lid ($25) is a classic metal wastebasket. • 4 The Rationell Recycling Bin ($10) is designed to fit inside a kitchen cabinet. • 5 The Sortera Box ($9) has a folding lid so that you can open it while stacked. SECOND ROW6 Turned upside-down, the Evert Stool ($5) is a colorful recycling bin. • 7 The Fibbe Bin with Lid ($14.99) is a good small-space model. • 8 The Andy Drawer Unit on Casters ($25) is an office item that could be repurposed as a recycling station. • 9 Plastic Dimpa Bin with Lid ($6.99 each) are washable and reusable. • 10 The Fniss Wastebasket ($1.99) is cheap enough to buy as many as you need. THIRD ROW11 Rill Casters ($10 for 4 pack) can be used to create rolling bins. • 12 The Vessla Storage Crate ($5.99) comes with built-in casters. • 13 If you need a place to hide your bins or bags, the Apa Storage Box is just $15.
