Designed by Natalie DuBois of DuBois Design, the Leigh kitchen cleverly uses Concelo waste bins to provide 60L of waste capacity in a small cabinet.
With growing awareness of the need to minimise waste, more clients want to sort waste into different waste streams to allow for different types of recycling or composting, as well as waste for landfill. Typically, this means needing a wide bin unit that will fit into a 600mm cabinet, which is not always available in compact kitchens or kitchen renovations.
Concelo waste bins have been designed by Hideaway Bins to provide a waste solution without compromise. A critical aspect of the design is having the biggest bucket to fit into the smallest space. The Concelo CR215D bin provides two 15 Litre buckets that can fit into a 400mm wide cabinet. With its height of 335mm, this allows two bin units to be stacked on top of each other to provide a four-bucket solution. This maximises utilisation of the cabinet space whilst still providing practical sized buckets. The top buckets can be used to capture waste that originates at bench height, such as organic waste (food scraps and peelings) and general waste, such as food packaging. The lower bins can be used to sort recycling.
As the demand for smarter waste management solutions increases, Hideaway Bins continues to develop more sophisticated solutions to help homeowners sort waste and recycling according to the requirements of today and tomorrow.
