10 Sleek Trash Bins

  • SumoMe

One thing about park life is that we got to remind ourselves to keep the gardens clean so that we can get a whiff of Mother Nature’s organic scent. But in order to that effectively, we’ve got to start at home. With these 10 sleek trash bins designs taken from Yanko Designs, you’ll want to take out the garbage all the time.

10) Crevasse Prep Sink by Anne Kitzmiller

Sophisticated and uber-chic, this sink-disposal system was designed with the collaborative efforts of Kohler. The sink uses Active Touch technology to function; the rinse cycle is indicated by a constant blue glow and the synchronised garbage disposal cycle is indicated by a flashing blue glow.


9) Table of Trash by Marie-Louise Gustafsson

Just sweep rubbish off the table.


8 ) BIN Concept by Faris Elmasu

An 18 litre trash can that incorporates a motorised sweeper into its system. The sweeper tucks into the front of the trash can when not in use, thereby charging as well.


7) Trash Bin by Denis Oh

Forget the hazards of a tapering mouth for a bin, these Bongsudae (Korean smoke alarm towers) inspired beauties deserve a place on the pedestal and not some dusty corner of a room.


6) Flexibin by Li Jianye

Not much on the design aspect but the Flexibin scores high on application. Invert a discarded grocery bag around it and the bin is ready to be used!


5) Minus by Cem Tutuncuoglu

I still have to figure out why I would need to freeze my garbage, but for Cem’s sake I’m willing to try.


4) Armstrong Bin by Sukwon Park & Sungwoo Park

Let’s kill the garbage even if its dead! Stomp it, and stomp it good.


3) Barcode Trashcan by Woo Seok Park

This one is a really amazing concept that allows you to be eco-conscious to the T. In case you don’t know which recycle bin your waste item goes to, just swipe its barcode across the scanner and the correct bin opens up. Cool cool style!


2) GreenHouse Effect by Orcadesign

From the collection of 10 items in it’s the list, the integrated dustbin concept is by far the best. A trapdoor design conceals the bin till you don’t require it. Moreover the clever idea of using discarded plastic bags to hold the trash is super!


1) Condom Ashtray by Jiang Qian

Picture speaks for itself.
