LOVE IT! Recycling center by Steve Kuhl, via Flickr Use your foot on the small pedal in the cabinet's toekick to activate the door in the backsplash. This action reveals three tubes (glass, metal, plastic) which correspond with three recycling bins located in the adjacent garage. The door is gasketed to prevent the backdraft of nasty smells. Springs, pulleys, cables, and more all make it work.
