We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

Simplehuman Recycling & General Waste Sliding Bins

The little bins by Simplehuman are fine for the occasional weekend away if you're happy to empty them everyday, but for more frequent use you need something bigger! Since recycling is so important to us I also wanted another bin to separate the recyclables into, with enough room to collect it all until we pass a community recycling point on our travels. This sliding set from quality manufacturer SimpleHuman is absolutely perfect!

The black bin is slightly larger than the blue one, and together they total 35 litres of capacity. Although we figure the blue is for recyclable items and the black for general waste but we now use them the other way around since we found our recycling takes up more space than our non-recyclable waste.

They're very simple to install (just screw the runner frame into place on the base of your cupboard) and really do glide effortlessly in and out - so well in fact they'd occasionally pop out of the cupboard and say hello on a bend! Although they would always glide politely back in again on the next one, we decided to install a 'stay-arm' to hold them in place whilst driving! :D

Don't think that the bin cupboard door is going to waste either, see our recycled milk bottle instructable>

What we like best about these is the fact that you get an extremely roomy set of bins that fit neatly into a narrow 300mm cupboard, far surpassing anything that hooks onto a door or that has to be 'constructed' out in the awning and we didn't have to give up doing our bit for recycling!

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
