My very small kitchen needs help with recycling

Small spaces can sometimes be a challenge, but fortunately, there are things you can do to make these areas function the way you want  them to. One way to get the best use out of a small area is to use vertical space (stacking, adding hooks/shelves to walls and the  inside or backs of doors). That way, you won’t take up a lot of room on the floor with an item that has a large footprint.

Below are some options that can help you create a recycling area in your small kitchen. Keep in mind that each of these units are fairly small, so you will need to empty them more frequently.


The Hidden Recycler

This recycling bin by Rubbermaid stays out of sight because you can mount it on the inside of a cabinet door. Since it not sitting on the floor, you’ll have more room in your main kitchen area. Another plus – the recycling bag can be laundered.

The Collapsible Bag

Recycle Crunch Can by Umbra® can be a great solution for small spaces. You can hang it on a hook on a wall or place it inside a cabinet. You can also fold it flat and store it almost anywhere when it’s not in use. To clean it, simply use a damp cloth to wipe it down.



The Tall Recycling Center

If you have a little more room in your main kitchen area, you can still save quite a bit of space by using this storage chest with slide out drawers. Since the unit is configured vertically, it will take up less space. And, the bins are plastic which should make cleaning them easy.

    I drop a comment when I like a article on a blog or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. It’s
    a result of the passion communicated in the post I read.
    And on this post My very small kitchen needs help with
    recycling | Rubbermaid Adventures in Organization.
    I was moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it simply me or does it look like like some of these remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I’d like to follow you.
    Would you make a list every one of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you
    get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you
    stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving
    me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I by no
    means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if
    all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material
    as you did, the net will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
