alison whips up a tidy trash and recycling center which allows for easy mail sorting and trashing.

she says, “the kitchen is on one side of the front door, and there was space just inside the kitchen doorway for this tidy trash and recycling center. the hacking part was more like sawing, as one of my ikea cutting boards was re-sized to become the shelf (aligned with the adjacent wire shelving) that supports the smaller wastebasket. now junk mail can immediately be recycled upon entry; and having the debris ‘trashcan’ available without opening a cupboard i find very handy.

bins-1 bins-2

i used:

  • fibbe trash-bins
  • sigfrid shelf brackets (can’t find the link on ikea’s website)
  • magasin cutting board

the wall-mounted light was also from ikea, but old enough that i have no idea what its ikea name is.”
