Which waste bin to choose?
It seems that choosing the right waste bin is a fairly straightforward task - nothing could be further from the truth! Many people do not realise how many types of waste bins there are. They need to be skilfully matched to the size of the kitchen and attention needs to be paid to the material from which they are made. Also important is the comfort of use and the possibility of built-in or hanging bins.
There are 3 basic types of waste bins for kitchens: pedal baskets, push baskets and infrared baskets. The most common are the former, which are opened using a pedal without the bin having to be touched by hand. In pedal baskets, the lid drops down automatically and you can also lock the hinges to open it for longer. Another type is the push-type baskets. These are characterised by an opening, are opened with a light push and are equipped with a quiet closing system. Push baskets are aesthetically pleasing and easy to clean. A modern solution is to equip kitchens with infrared baskets that open and close automatically thanks to a built-in sensor.
A separate type is the waste separation baskets. In a modern kitchen, you can opt for built-in waste bins In a modern kitchen, you can opt for built-in waste bins, bins that fit into drawers or waste bins for kitchen cupboards. It is also advisable to provide suitable rubbish bags and filters to absorb unpleasant odours.
Trash bins are most often made of metal (stainless steel) or plastic (polypropylene). When choosing litter bins, there is one more thing to pay attention to, namely aesthetics. This is particularly important for litter bins for bathrooms and rooms, when these bins are usually visible.
