Just for recyclable plastics!ChrisBought the larger Sortera for #1 and #2 recyclable plactics. Working well thus far. Bought the smaller Sortera for the other recyclables. Nice design and style.5
Love thisKAYLAI have these for my recycling and for crafts. My kids even love these for their crafting goodies. They stack nice and have an easy way to stack and open. If these get dirty they just wipe clean, even red juice doesn’t stain them!! When I’m using for recycling my whole family helps make sure everything is put where it goes and more gets recycled.5
Storage galoreMaxineI love these bins. I used them in my laundry room to store toilet tissue, cleaning supplies, Covid test, paper towels. They stack nicely and make my room look uncluttered.5
Exactly what I was looking forJENIFERI am using this to hold my dog food in and another for all their treats and extra things. Love it. Easy, convenient, and a great size.5
Sturdy just the right size.ShariSturdy just the right size.5
Wish the lid stayed in placeAshThis is a great solution for my family's recycling storage. I only wish the lid stayed in place. Because it just sits on top of the box, we find it much easier to remove it entirely when we need to put something inside. That means we don't take full advantage of the design.4

Perfect for RecyclingKelseyThese bins are perfect for recycling! My only suggestion is to make the flapped opening a little bigger. It is difficult to fit some recyclable plastic containers inside the opening.5

Great Idea. Good design. Very Functional.JoeNever thought I'd get excited about recycling containers! lol But these fit a niche for my town's recycling rules. I've never lived in a place where recycling had to be separated. But in my neck of the woods ... nothing can "co-mingle". So these containers come in very handy & also help when taking their contents to the recycling depot. Kind of wish there was a modular outdoor racking system for these. Also wish there was some kind of cover over the lid hinge to make them waterproof or water tight. IKEA ... are you listening?5
Recycling bin for garageREGENIAWe use these in our garage without the lid to wrangle the cardboard, plastic, glass we are required to drive to nearby recycling bins. This makes life easy for us. When the bin is full, we put it in the back of our van and are on our way.4
Love,love,love! You can keep yourSuminLove,love,love! You can keep your house clean and neat. This functional bin can turn into various types such as recycling bin, trash bin, toy box, and so on.5

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 plastics

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 plastics

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!
