Perfect BinDurlinePerfect Recycle Bin5
Large bin with double ludMargaretGreat design to get at items in stacked bins. Nice and sturdy. I’m currently using it in the cat room to store supplies and air purifier filters. I wish it came in darker colors and also that a dolly or wheels were available for ease of floor cleaning. When my old recycle bins (IKEA) rectangular baskets with lids wear out, I get more Sortera to stack and save space.5
Multi purpose containerValerieWe really love these containers. We currently have four in our home. One is for single stream recycling and the other three are for pet food storage. We love that they are stackable. We can keep everything stored in a small space in our kitchen for quick access. 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
Extra storageBeatriceLove these recycle bins. I use them to have my family store their drinks instead of in the packaging. This way I can buy several and they can just go in the pantry and grab several to put in the fridge5
Perfect for recycling stationBaileyWorks exactly as hoped! Looks great and functions well for a recycling station. Honestly bigger than I expected. 5

Great alternative for trash and recyclingAngela Y.Using two of these stackable bins for trash and recycling. Keeps the kitchen neat and tidy, easy to use and I simply use paper grocery sacks as liners. The bins are very high quality and a good value5
Great binsCarmenOriginally bought years ago. Needed to replace one because kid put it out with the recycling in it and it got recycled too. ♻️ These bins are a little different in color but appear to be just as functional and durable. Love them.5

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!
