Recycling is an important and central topic nowadays. So we suggest a DIY project which allows you to shield the rubbish bins in a functional way, without giving up on design. A solution which lets you exploit at best your garden or terrace by giving a cover to plastic bins.

By using PlayWood connectors and wooden boards, you can easily create a sort of recycling station. This project is fast and easy to assemble: in few minutes you will get a tripartite structure, where to recycle paper, plastic materials, bottles and cans. Materials used are simple and cheap: you can fold the project once you don't need it anymore or, you can re-assemble the pieces and obtain a different modular structure.
