A while ago I blogged about our self-built trash manager inside an IKEA BEKVÄM. And while it worked fine in general, it turned out that getting a full trash bag out of it was really cumbersome. It also held only two kinds of trash (plastic and residual waste) but had no room for paper.
So we began thinking about other solutions. Kaddi always thought it would be nice to have a bench in the kitchen to sit on and that it would be a great way to combine that with the trash problem. This week we finally talked it through and came up with a plan.
Below you can see some pictures of how we built it. The inner box runs on wheels and contains two IKEA VARIERA bins. It has enough space for paper recycling as well. Material cost was about 160 EUR.
