Planning an efficient kitchen is a process that should not be rushed. Many people understandably overlook kitchen waste disposal and under-the-sink storage. With general waste, compost, recycling, taking meal clean up into consideration when designing your kitchen will make your routine tasks a lot easier. Clever, concealed kitchen garbage designs mean you can keep your trash organised and ensure your kitchen remains tidy without having an unpleasant, exposed flip-top bin.

Cabinet Waste Storage
Clever and compact waste storage systems are very popular to integrate into your kitchen design. Slide out drawers with dividers are great for organising your rubbish into general waste, recycling and food scraps for compost. These bin systems come in a range of dimensions, shapes and styles to suit your cabinet design and kitchen décor, making it easy to sort out your rubbish. Store your rubbish behind your cabinets, under your sink or in your island for efficient use of space.

Concealed and Covered
If you don’t like looking at your rubbish, choose a bin system that is stored under your kitchen bench top and provides a lid for each container. Use labels to ensure your family can easily identify which container is for which type of rubbish.

Bin Location
Lastly, don’t forget to choose a central bin location in your kitchen as it stores most of the household rubbish. A good bin location is usually under or next to the sink – on the opposite side to the dishwasher so that you can scrape your dishes, rinse – then stack. An accessible spot means you can throw away rubbish without getting in the way of anyone cooking.
