How to Build a Storage Tower for Your Recycling Can

Build a space-saving tower for plastic recycling containers with simple 2x2 and screw construction.


From The Family Handyman

Five plastic containers, six 2x2s and screws, and one hour’s work are all it takes to put together this space-saving recycling storage rack for your recycling can. The frame fits containers that have a top that measures 14-1/2 in. x 10 in. and are 15 in. tall.


Project Overview:

Five plastic containers, six 2x2s and screws, and one hour’s work are all it takes to put together this space-saving recycling storage rack for your recycling can. The frame fits recycling containers that have a top that measures 14-1/2 in. x 10 in. and are 15 in. tall. The containers shown here were made by Rubbermaid.

If you use different-size recycling cans, adjust the distance between the uprights so the 2x2s will catch the lip of the container. Then adjust the spacing of the horizontal rungs for a snug fit when the container is angled as shown.


Project Directions for this Storage Tower for Your Recycling can:

Start by cutting the 2x2s to length according to the illustration. Then mark the position of the rungs on the uprights. Drill two 5/32-in. holes through the uprights at each crosspiece position. Drill from the outside to the inside and angle the holes inward slightly to prevent the screws from breaking out the side of the rungs.

Drive 2-1/2-in. screws through the uprights into the rungs. Assemble the front and back frames. Then connect them with the side crosspieces.
