With the need to separate waste and recycled materials in the home, the solution is installed in the kitchen or utility cabinets are becoming very popular. The available options range from inexpensive door mounted single bins to multi-compartment, multi-layer slide out.
Here are some key factors to consider when choosing a waste and recycling system in your kitchen.
- Budget: You’ll want to use the lowest cost. You should consider using some of the garbage door installed. It is lightweight, inexpensive, yet effective. Usually the lid will open when you open the closet door. The downside is that each bin will take up space in front of the closet was located inside. If cost is not a big factor going for the largest system you can afford and find space for kitchen waste.
- Number of compartments: Discover how many different ways you separate the bin/recycling. Make sure you have at least this amount will only compartment that is less frustrating if you make a trip to the garage for a type of waste and others do not. Also think you may need to divide the waste in the future, so it is that into consideration.
- Space: a mono- layer system can generally be placed under the sink to make better use of space in the general resigned cleaning equipment. Avoid finding bin in the corner of the unit you will find it difficult to access the area behind the dresser. If you have limited space, try using a large pot on the feet of the waste recycling system is combined with. Important: Measure the space you have in your closet (height, width and depth) to make sure you buy a system that will fit.
- Location: The best location is usually near the area of food preparation as possible. Remember that you should ideally restrict register boxes, airtight container and cleaning products in a cabinet that contains the unit bin/recycling to avoid contamination.
Also avoid placing bins in a closet that has a heat source, e.g for heating pipes.
5. Installation: Modern systems are usually ready built so that they can be installed very easily. Usually, it is simply to set the basic mechanism of the cabinet, and if the tray is designed to open the door, then attach it to the door. If you are not sure, try to fit the screw at least not fully inserted. Open and close the door and open the system tray if everything looks OK, the screws completely. Most waste can be installed in less than 5 minutes.
