Waste sorting systems

The underrated day-to-day kitchen heroes – waste bins

Recycling mithilfe von BLANCO Mülltrennungssystemen

You’ve done your shopping for the weekend ahead and are now standing in your kitchen bags full of goods. Think of this familiar scenario when planning your kitchen, and you’ll soon realise how important it is to have a well organised kitchen. When stowing your food in the larder or refrigerator, you’re bound to see something that you need to throw out. At the peak, households worldwide generate up to 36.1 tons of waste per capita (statista, 2019) which need to be collected, sorted and disposed of, ideally in a BLANCO waste bin.

After going shopping, it can be difficult to avoid rubbish

Rubbish is difficult to avoid

If you’re not fortunate enough to be able to buy your groceries from a weekly market, then you’ll also have to separate out the packaging, bags and glasses to go into the recycling. Of course, waste separation differs from area to area. Yet we are all responsible for sorting our rubbish, and many people are indeed thinking about how they can find ways of cutting down on waste by using different rubbish bins.

But it is not just the separation of your waste system that determines your "perfect match". The optimal use of your cabinet should also play a role.

The interaction with the sink and your mixer tap is crucial here. An advantage that you have on your side with the ingenious solutions from BLANCO.

Recycling protects the environment

Unfortunately, none of us can do without a waste bin altogether, no matter how much or how little rubbish gathers in our kitchens. Well-organised waste separation means that the different materials can be recycled as valuable raw materials and fed back into a cycle that protects our environment, while also noticeably reducing the cost of waste disposal.

Effective kitchens need waste separation

There is a vast choice of waste bins for kitchens. And it’s just as well, as every household is different, so your waste separation system should be suitable for your kitchen. For ordinary residual waste and organic waste, you ideally want a space close to your sink, as this is when most of the remnants are produced, whether while preparing food or washing up. A waste separation system offers flexible bin divisions, so that you can gather valuable materials separately.

To ensure that your beautiful kitchen remains a place of well-being, the waste bin vanishes elegantly into a base cabinet behind the kitchen fronts. As such, it doesn’t matter whether you have hinged doors, front pull-outs or drawers in your kitchen, as there are different separation systems for every type of installation.

A waste bin for organic waste can even be planned to go beside the chopping board on the worktop. After all, anyone who cooks a lot at home can tell you a thing or two about how food waste can end up falling all over the kitchen floor. As such, it is better if cucumber peel and melon seeds have as short a distance as possible to travel to their collection container.
