Recycle bins are relegated to the garage in many homes for obvious reasons — they’re just plain ugly! So I set out in search of decorative bins that you wouldn’t have to hide away, and I couldn’t believe the prices on most of the ones I found. Ranging from $100-500, it’s no wonder most people stick with hiding their recycle bins out of sight rather than upgrading.
With that in mind, here are my top 9 finds, ranging from the cool but seemingly overpriced ones to relatively inexpensive ones for smaller budgets. And if — like us — you don’t have a garage, paying for a nice recycle bin is still a cheaper alternative to building one just so you have a place to hide your bins!
