Waste sorting has never been easier!

Egg boxes, empty tins and newspapers - do these lie around and mess up your home until you find time to put them in the communal bins?
Would you like to sort your waste more efficiently, but think it's too hard due to lack of space, knowledge about waste sorting and what standard solutions are available?
Would you like to sort your waste and do your bit for the environment, our shared future and your sustainability conscience?
We've all been in that situation where some of the recyclable waste ends up in the general household waste because we don't have the time or energy to sort it, or because we don't have a good solution for sorting and storing our recyclables. Fortunately, help is now at hand. We have designed a product that solves all of your waste sorting problems.

 
 
  • You get a flexible solution that's easy to put together to suit your needs
  • The sorting boxes are wall-mounted, as space under the kitchen sink is often limited
  • The dimensions of the box are based on recyclable waste and can hold both large glass items and plastic bottles
  • A standard 20L bag fits the box, and these are available in all shops.
  • The sorting box is made of plastic, and is therefore quick and easy to clean
  • The inner box clicks easily on and off the wall bracket
  • The design is available in several colours, which can be combined to suit personal taste
  • We use 100% recycled plastic, and the sorting box can be recycled afterward

Well thought out, sustainable solution

Sustainability means that we utilise the earth's resources without harming our own or our future generations' opportunities to meet their needs and prosper on a global scale. We can do this by recycling rather than disposing.

Sustainability is an important focal point for ReCollector. We think sustainably when we make our products, when we make decisions and run our company as a whole. The waste box is made from 100% recycled plastic. This actually means that 2 kg of space is removed from our waste, and used to create sustainable products such as ReCollector's sorting boxes. The waste box is made of pure plastic and is therefore recyclable over and over again.

At ReCollector, we design and produce our products together with strategic business partners, where knowledge, production methods and materials help make sustainable products that can enter a circular production and consumption. The products can contribute to greater sustainability in cities and local communities.

Solution born from my own need for waste sorting

The idea for a functional waste container came about after I kept getting annoyed at all the recyclable packaging that we constantly had lying around the house. Every time we cooked, plastic trays, empty tins and glass spilled over the worktops and into the hallway, creating a mess that stayed there until we got around to throwing it into the communal waste bins. But the next day, it would start all over again. We didn't have room under the sink for waste sorting, like some people do.

Before I began designing an attractive and functional solution for waste sorting, I ran workshops and visited friends to see how they sorted their waste, and noted what worked, what didn't and what annoyed them. Their waste sorting challenges were almost identical to mine.

The many challenges around waste sorting were incorporated into the design. Most people don't have room under their sink, which is why the design was wall-mounted. The solution also had to be able to hide away the most common recyclable waste, which is why the dimensions were based on wine bottles and large storage jars. As the waste sorting box was to be wall-mounted, the design had to look nice, simple, Scandinavian and be available in a choice of attractive colours. A large number of other needs, preferences and ideas that came from anthropological studies led to the creation of the sorting box. After working persistently on making the design work and on making it sustainable, the first sorting box was born the end of 2020.
