These colorful recycling bins are more sophisticated than they first appear — the Husmus (translation: house mouse) bins from Swedish company Muungano are designed to fit in cabinetry under sinks. Because of their modular construction, the sizes are customizable and each bin is designed to be able to accommodate multiple sizes of plastic bags and contents.
Made of recycled plastic, the modular parts are held together with plastic rivets. The parts are flat packed and assembled by the user.
The bins are designed to hold paper, plastic, glass, cans and cardboard and are also appropriate for compostable and wet waste.
Husmus bins are available for €15 - €22.50 and are designed and produced by Muungano.
