Dear Recycling Bins… Our Recycling Advice Column

Dear Recycling Bins,

I live in a lovely apartment in a big city and most of the time, I love it.

What I don’t love though, is when my recycling piles up in what is already a really small space. It makes the apartment cluttered and to be honest, a bit smelly.

I’ve tried different bins, boxes, and bags but so far I haven’t found anything that suits me. Please, please, please can you help me find a recycling solution for my small space?

Answering Question

Thank you for your question!

We know how difficult it can get when you don’t have much space to spare (thank God for IKEA!). When you live in a small space, even the tiniest bit of clutter and undesirable smell is really noticeable. You need a proper solution, not a bin, bag, or box that’s going to take up a third of your available living space.

But fear not, Recycling Bins is here to help!

You’ll find all kinds of recycling solutions in our high-quality range to suit all budgets and the space you have available. Here are some of our suggestions for recycling solutions for small spaces.

Put ‘em high to save space

When you don’t have a lot of floor space, make use of the vertical space. Try one of these space-saving recycling solutions for size.

Joseph Joseph Totem Recycling Bin - 40 Litre

This recycling bin has two compartments that are arranged vertically to save your precious floor space. There’s a removable food caddy with an odour control feature and the other compartment is perfect for your recycling. Best of all, it’s super easy to clean and its stylish design will suit any small space.

Slim Profile Stackable Recycling Container - 25 Litre

This is another recycling container that makes recycling in a small space so much easier. It’s slim, it looks good, and it’s just what you’ve been looking for…yes, this space-saver is so good, it should have its own dating profile!

It comes in a range of colours to complement your space and there are also handy stickers you can put on so you remember what you’re supposed to put in each. There’s a flap at one end that allows you to put your recycling into the container without taking the lid off, and it’s got carry handles, which will make your walk to the communal recycling bin a whole lot easier.

Double up to save space

Forget separate recycling bins and waste bins when you live in a small space. When you don’t have the luxury of the extra storage or floor space, a bin with multiple compartments is just what you need.

EKO Ecofly Slim Dual Compartment Recycling Bin - 40 Litre

This recycling Bin has a butterfly-style opening which allows you to store it away under worktops in kitchens where there’s not much free space. It comes in a matt-stainless steel finish and will look the part in any apartment or flat, no matter how small.

Make dealing with food waste a breeze

When you live in a small space, the last thing you want is a bin full of rotting food or other organic material stinking up your space. Of course, the first step is to try and reduce food waste in the first place, but for the waste that’s left, why not invest in a food caddy for your kitchen?

Joseph Joseph Easy Fill Kitchen Waste Caddy - 4 Litre

This handy caddy has a door mounting bracket, so it can be easily hidden away in a cupboard to save space. It comes with an air vent that can be adjusted to keep nasty odours from escaping into your abode, as well as a carry handle, and a capacity of 4-litres, which should save you a lot of trips to the communal bin.

Don’t forget the bathroom

Much of our waste is generated in the kitchen, but don’t forget about the bathroom too. You don’t want empty bottles cluttering up a small space, so why not invest in a bathroom recycling bin?

Joseph Joseph Bathroom Split Recycling Bin

This stylish and compact bin has two built-in compartments; one for your general waste and the other for recycling, which makes separating your waste a breeze. The smaller compartment is perfect for bathroom waste like cotton pads and dental floss, and the larger compartment is perfect for your empty product containers. Now there’s no excuse not to recycle more of your bathroom waste, while keeping your bathroom clean, tidy, and as spacious as possible in the process.

We hope we have given you some great ideas for recycling solutions for small spaces. Happy recycling!
