PVC Collapsible Garbage Bins

Filed under: Camping — Laura Moncur @ 8:25 am

Collapsible Trash Bin from Starling TravelLowe’s has a project for your campsite garbage. It is made out of PVC and easily collapses for storage and transport:


Step 1: Using a hacksaw, cut the PVC into the following lengths:

  • 4 (6-inch) pieces
  • 1 (17 3/4-inch) piece
  • 4 (30-inch) pieces
  • 4 (3-inch) pieces
  • 2 (17 1/2-inch) pieces

Step 2: Assemble the PVC parts as shown in the photo.

Step 3: Use the PVC cement to glue the base and sides together. Do not glue the caps, which are meant to be taken off and placed over the bag to hold it in place. You now have three parts to transport and assemble on site.

Step 4: Clean the words and numbers off the pipes with PVC pipe cleaner. Repeat these steps to make two more trash bins. Write “aluminum,” “paper,” and “trash” on the pipes with a permanent marker to distinguish the three receptacles.
