Here at Binopolis, we stock a wide selection of 2 and 3 compartment kitchen recycling bins. Our models all come from the biggest and best brands, meaning they not only look great but are made with high-quality materials that will last for years.

Below, we’ve listed some of our favourite models, to help you make the best choice for your home.

The best kitchen bins and recyclers from the best brands

Brabantia Bo Pedal Bin

Brabantia has been one of the most popular brands for home bins for many years. Their range is full of sleek and effective designs that compliment any interior.

One of Brabantia’s most popular models is the Brabantia Bo, a design that perfectly balances style and functionality. The rounded design with steel body looks elegant but with a stylish, retro twist. Just as importantly, it maximises capacity on the inside, with two or three-compartment versions available.

The Brabantia Bo comes in a selection of styles. The Bo Touch and Bo Pedal offer different opening methods to suit you, while the Bo Hi comes with stylish legs which offer a bit of extra height and easier access.

Brabantia Touch Bin

Brabantia also offer a more traditional option with their Touch range of stainless steel kitchen bins. These versatile designs look great in any kitchen and come with quick and easy touch-opening lids.

We have various capacities available, each offering something slightly different. Two of our most popular are the 60-litre Brabantia Bo Touch, which comes with two equal-sized compartments, and a smaller 34-litre version which stands on its own legs.

Wesco Big Double Bin

Another hugely popular brand on our site is Wesco. With a history dating back to 1867, they’re instantly noticeable for their eye-catching, retro-inspired designs, especially when it comes to freestanding bins.

One of our most popular recycling bins is the Wesco Big Double Master. This compact design comes with a generous 40-litre capacity, split across two compartments. You could have one for waste and another for recycling, or use it to split your plastics and paper.

The Wesco Big Double Master has a stainless steel build including a butterfly lid that drastically reduces the open height of the bin. The butterfly lid, combined with a front pedal and back-fitted wheels make this bin perfect for storing waste under counters.

This model is available in multiple colours, but our most popular is the black version, which looks incredibly stylish with the red Wesco logo featuring on the front of the design.

Joseph Joseph Totem 60L

One of our favourite UK-based brands, Joseph Joseph, offer a fantastic selection of contemporary and minimalist designs that look great in any modern kitchen. Their sleek designs always have functionality at their heart, creating bins that not only look good but are incredibly functional, perfect for everyday convenience.

If you don’t have much floor space in your kitchen but want or need a freestanding bin, the Totem by Joseph Joseph might be the perfect model for you.

Despite not taking up more floor space than a regular bin, this model comes with two sizeable 30-litre buckets, one sitting on top of the other. As the Totem is designed to use vertical space, it’s extra height means that the top bucket sits nicely alongside your counters and is easily accessed whenever you’re cooking or cleaning.

The Totem comes with a small food waste caddy that sits in the top bucket. This means that the Totem could be enough for all your waste and recycling needs on its own, keeping your waste organised in one place.

This bin also comes with wheels on the bottom bucket for easy removal, a convenient touch lid for the top bucket, and built-in odour control through a charcoal filter. It’s a fantastic and convenient choice for family kitchens.
