DIY IKEA Hanging Bin

Don’t have a lot of space in your kitchen and want to keep the bin in a cupboard? A simple hack on a cheap IKEA bin can give you a neat in-cupboard design that lets you recycle supermarket plastic bags as bin liners.

At IKEA Hackers, Jeff details how you can slice off segments of the $3.99 Rationell Variera waste bin using a hacksaw blade to create a design that’s ideal for a bag-based bin. While there’s been a move away from plastic bags towards reusable cloth bags (and in South Australia plastic bags are banned altogether), you can still end up with bags occasionally, so this is a good way to reuse them. Hit the post for the detailed cutting guide.
