SorteraRenePerfect for organizing any space especially ideal for recyclable materials.5
I use this to sort my returnablesMICHELLEI like how deep it is and that they are stackable. It gives me a convenient way to sort my returnables with the bonus of being able to take it with me when I do take them into the bottle depot.5
Very practicalAnnaGreat storage bin, use it for things to donate other than a recycling bin. The shape and size is just right for my space.5
Simply UsefulGeristurdy and useful5
Great for sorting recycling.GILLIANGreat for sorting recycling.5
10/10LYNDAPerfect because it is sturdy, compact and user friendly for when I want to grab some more fresh wood pellet litter! It is the exact size to accommodate TWO 40 lb bags of wood pellets (sold at Canadian Tire), which is what I use for my rabbit litter.5
Great binsNicoleI like these bins to store out of sight items in my home. They are neat and tidy.5
It works for meBOBBig enough to put our rabbit food!5
Perfect for pet foodKarinWe have two of these, one for the cats and one for the dog. Fits a huge bag of pet food easily. It isn't air-tight, but keeps the food fresh enough and keeps the pets from going whole hog when on their own (and should keep insects out if you are using in the garage).5
The bin of my dreams!LINDAI've had the Sortera on my wish list for ages, but always thought I was exaggerating how good they would be and should just stick with the city-issued bins. I regret the wasted time. I finally bought these a few weeks ago and I LOVE them! They're so convenient and the stacking feature saves a tonne of space in my small home. I only wish I'd bought them sooner!5

Perfect solution for recyclingDeborahThese bins are great - very attractive looking, put up with the abuse of 4 grandkids and has made our recycling super ease to manage. Love them!5
I love this!!!SUNYOUNGI really love this. I use this as a rice keeper I love the lid that can open partially. I will buy more.5
Great as a recycle binSherry-AnneWe've been using this as a recycle bin in our home. Our previous bin just wasn't large enough to hold enough recycling throughout the week before offloading it into our actual blue bin on recycle day. So as a temporary solution, we were using a cardboard box instead. This is obviously, MUCH better than a cardboard box, and addressed the need for a larger volume. Thinking about getting another one as well. I appreciate it comes with an easy access lid too!5
The container is excellent. PerfectBrianThe container is excellent. Perfect for our immediate needs. I like that they stack neatly on one another and that only a portion of the lid will open to give you access to the container.5
Great for recyclingDEBORAHI have two of these and use one for recycling and the other for cans and bottles. They sit on my balcony and if they get wet everything inside stays dry and doesn't blow away in the wind.5
Perfect for recyclingLENAFinally found a large enough set of bins that I can stack nicely they are big and hold enough and look great because they have to be exposed in my kitchen as I don't have cupboard space for recycling.5
It fits where I wantedLauraIt fits where I wanted it to, I guess I wish it was just a little bigger but it works great4

One more way to recycle

Our SORTERA recycling bins are a great way to keep your paper, plastic and other recycling items organized. They’re designed to be modular and stackable so they can work with or without a shelving system.

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
