Having just completed our kitchen install, we are looking for a rubbish
bin to fit in the under sink cupboard.
My parents have one which is basically a plastic rectangular hoop with a
lid. The hoop has hooks to hold a carrier bag. It's a great gadget
because it hardly takes up any space in the cupboard, and it reuses all
those carrier bags you don't know what to do with. But, they got it on a
special offer at Morrisons, who don't sell them any more.
Lakeland do something a bit similar, but much more substantial (has an
outer bag around the carrier bag). Does anyone know where I could get
such a thing?
I would recommend the more substantial option.
If a carrier bag were to split (or leak) then you would have a mess.
The one we have - came with the fitted kitchen - is made by Hailo and is
probably German judging by the stickers on it.
This is a plastic bin with a handle, but the right size to line with a
For the simple type you describe I would try a caravan supplier - ISTR they
used to fit these inside caravan doors.
There is a betterware, I haven't got a catalogue, but mine has BW 898 A2
moulded in the lid, course that could mean anything, so clock their site.
I used this happily until a kitchen refit, now go a norrible poshe one
nowhere near as good, butlike David says it's not very substantial, and
bags can split.... (but I liked it - the whlo assembly lived on keyhole
slots and removed for washing)
Lakeland have a part no ref 1793 In Bin
I can't find a reference to the Hailo, I'd like to hear if anyone can
B&Q do a simple one - patterned aluminium outer and a plastic bin. (Rip off
the silly bin handle as it just makes it awkward to get the bags in or
out.) It is adequate.
Fairly basic mechanism lifts the lid. (OK - very basic.) Suggest a touch of
silicone grease/spray to make it slide easily.
