(how to hide the sorted glass, metals and paper)

- Rollout drawers which match the cabinetry, fitted with bins to set at the curb on garbage collection day.
- Circular lids in laminate or corian countertops, which lift to expose bins below, which are removable from the cabinets to take to the curb.
- Pull-out recycling centers which look like base cabinets but pull out to expose several garbage baskets set in a rim for easy access/removal.
- Traps and chutes which carry the garbage to basement or ground level areas, or doors on cabinetry which lock on the interior of the house, so that the bins can be removed by garbage collectors from doors on the exterior side.
