Waste Bins, Not Just for Trash Anymore

March 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 212

Waste bins have had a stigma of being just that, a bin for waste. Also called trash bins, trash cans, or as grandma used to say, waste buckets, these bins are hardly wasteful, but useful. In fact, they should be called useful bins.

First of all, waste bins are used as the obvious, garbage. Trash is taken to the bin, unsorted, and then at the end of the week, the contents are taken to a bigger can, which is then picked up by the garbage person. Just to be informative, kitchen organization, any organization, is more than just clearing the clutter on the inside of the house.

This organization continues outside the home as well, effecting these areas in a person's life. The perfect vehicle for waste bins to serve in are compost bins. There are many sites on the internet with how to steps on how to start composting. Often a small container is kept inside the kitchen for food scraps to be taken to the outdoor compost but some people opt to order worms to start their composting indoors. There may be some less extreme uses for the unused bins in your household though.

Waste bins as containers. For the home office, a bin can hold plans or large drawings. Smaller ones can be used for temporary files until they are put away in the file cabinet. For the playroom, a waste bin can hold stuff toys, trucks, tea sets, and sports equipment. Using a clean new trash can for a toy box is a lot more economical than purchasing a bin in the toy department that is designed for this purpose and because they come in many shapes and sizes you can select one that best fits your space. For the kitchen, waste bins with lids can hold product that does not require refrigeration. A trash bin can also hold grilling equipment during the winter months when grilling may not be accessible. In a bathroom, garbage cans can hold extra rolls of toilet paper, bath toys, and cleaning supplies. Finally, a waste bucket in the laundry room can hold cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, and be used to hold dirty clothes.

Overall, trash bins are very versatile, and do more than what its intended original purpose calls for. Always try to find new uses for it, and keep in mind to look beyond the bin. Maybe next time you are looking for a good way to store an item you will remember this article.
