recycling tower

Take advantage of vertical space and build a tower for the recycling bins. The shelves are slanted to allow for easy access when throwing in your recyclables. In addition to holding the recycling bins you have extra storage for bulk items. No more bending over to throw out recycling, bring the bins up to waist level and make use of all that wasted wall space.
