Guideline 12

Pull Out Trash

Recycle Bins
At least two waste receptacles should be included in the plan. One for garbage, and one for recyclables, or other recycling facilities should be planned.

Guideline 12 Clarification

Door hinged to cabinet

Door mounted to trash roll out
The top edge of a waste receptacle should be no higher than 36". The receptacle should be easily accessible and should be removable without raising the receptacle bottom higher than the unit's physical height. Lateral removal of the receptacle which does not require lifting is most desirable.
