Built-in In-cupboard Bins for kitchen cabinets with 400mm wide doors

A built-in bin keeps the hub of the home looking sleek and minimal. Neatly concealed within a kitchen cabinet, an integrated bin keeps your recycling and waste neatly sorted and out of sight. 

Our extensive collection of in-cupboard bins from Wesco and Vauth-Sagel are some of the strongest and most durable available and they are perfect for fitting into your existing kitchen furniture or into a new kitchen scheme. 

Our range includes In-cupboard bins for all standard cabinet widths, divided between bins to attach to pull-out doors and those for fitting inside cabinets with hinged doors. So if you're planning your new kitchen, or need a new recycling and waste solution to freshen up and tidy your kitchen, we should have an integrated bin to suit you.

Please get in touch for help with choosing a bin for any size cabinet, but this blog is all about 400mm cabinets: read on for our suggestions for both Pull-out and Hinged doors


Six of our 400mm bins are for pull-out doors. All are top quality German-made products which should stand up to years of use in your kitchen, with steel runner mechanisms and a choice of recycling configurations so you can separate your recyclables and waste to suit your needs.


It’s not surprising that the Wesco Bio Double 64L 789611-85 is one of our best-selling in-cupboard bins: it’s the largest capacity bin we sell for a 400mm pull-out door and fits two large 32L inner buckets into the full height of the cabinet, making the best possible use of the space. It runs on top quality, smooth running ball-bearing runners built to handle up to 30KG of weight.

This excellent customer review on our Feefo feedback site sums it up: "This bin assembly is a perfect fit for a Howdens 400mm base unit and glides in and out smoothly. The two containers are of a generous size (only slightly less than a normal swing bin) and easy to remove for emptying and cleaning. The unit appears to be robust and well made enough to stand up to prolonged use - but clearly only time will tell on this point. There's a very handy shelf included over the top of the bins where bin bags can be stored - and which should also help to contain any nasty bin-smells! Fitting was quick and easy once I'd figured out what went where, although getting the door attached and adjusted exactly right does take care and attention. Very practical and completely hidden from view until it's needed, all in all we're very pleased with this neat, fully integrated solution to the kitchen waste-bin problem."

The soft-close mechanisms in the Wesco Pullboy Z bins take over the operation of the cabinet door and give you smooth and whisper-quiet closing. The 827418-11 in grey has one large 32L inner bucket and one of 10L which is perfect for food waste, and the 827418-52 is the same design in black and white to match other Blum Intivo fittings, or simply to compliment your kitchen styling.

To help imagine these capacities, it’s worth remembering that 30 litres is the capacity of many single standard kitchen bins (usually the cylindrical type). As an example, the 32L Wesco bucket is 53cm tall (30cm wide), so at around half a metre high these are great capacity buckets. 

Bins with a height of 576mm take up much of the height of a standard cabinet, but the lids on both Wesco and Vauth-Sagel bins are strong enough to use as a shelf for liners, papers etc so the space at the top of your cabinet is not wasted. The bins can also be fitted high up in the cabinet (as long as the weight on the door is balanced), for easy access from the worktop.


The choice of bins to fit in a 400mm cabinet below the drawer line includes the 827416-11 is 471mm high and has 36L of capacity across 26L and 10L buckets. For even lower fitting heights, the 827408-11 is 400mm high, meaning you could fit its 30L capacity below shelves. 


The Vauth-Sagel Oko Liner 20L 503.04.503 for a 400mm cabinet is unique in having both low height and depth, making it perfect for difficult installations below or in front of pipework, columns etc. At 370mm high and 470mm deep, it can be fitted below a drawer and is also ideal if you have a thicker back panel taking up depth. Like the other lower height Vauth-Sagel bins it has the benefit of a retractable steel lid which acts as a pull-out shelf.


It's worth remembering that Wesco bins for Hinged doors are designed as self-contained ‘frame’ units, ready to simply screw into the cabinet base. This means they can be positioned flexibly and fitted in wider cabinets if you want to place a bin on one side and a water filter, heater or more storage on the other side.  

Some of the most useful and effective Wesco bins for hinged doors will fit into the width of a 400mm cabinet, but check the depth and height of each product particularly if you have pipework to work around. 

Two of our most popular bins for Hinged doors are the Wesco Big Bio Double bins which, as their name suggests, are the largest capacity ‘frame’ bins for 400mm cabinets. They are the 52L 757811-85, which has two generous 26L inner buckets and a height of 465mm, which should fit below most drawers. The 64L 757812-85 is a similar design but is 565mm high, meaning it fits two 32L inner buckets into the majority of the cabinet height.

Triple compartment bins are so useful if you need to separate your recycling and waste into three sections: all can be neatly sorted and hidden away in the cabinet. The Trio Master 787821-85 has one 16L and two 8L buckets, and with a height of 320mm this is a very popular bin for fitting triple recycling separation into a compact cabinet space.

The larger capacity Bio Trio 757721-85 bin takes up 385mm of height and has one 20L and two 10L buckets. One happy customer reports “I purchased the largest unit I could fit in the cupboard and am very pleased with it as a smaller one would not have worked so well with a family of 5.  The clutter is now hide-able but when we are cooking/cleaning we leave it open to fire everything in as we go. The floor area next to the back door used to build up with an overflowing caddy ready for the trip in the rain to the compost or out to the recycling bins so this is a brilliant solution.  Everyone I have shown is impressed.”

Completing the range of Wesco bins for Hinged doors are two designs each with useful features:

The Double Master 32L 787811-85 is 320mm high, meaning it can fit below shelving or drawers. As with all Wesco products its quality shines through: our customer’s feedback on Feefo describes it as a “Good, solid product, well engineered”. 

The Stainless Steel inner buckets on the 32L 787814-42 Master make it particularly good for commercial kitchens where hygiene regulations can often stipulate stainless steel finishes, but its durability and craftsmanship make it a great choice for homes too.
