WASTE CONTAINERS

Renowned as the most complete and through line available, Rev-A-Shelf’s waste container series include endless options. Whether you have a small clearance cabinet, or you are wanting to be more environmentally conscious, we have designed a pullout waste container for every situation. In this section, you will find everything you need to know about waste containers and selecting the perfect one for your home.



Several Rev-A-Shelf waste containers are offered with an array of slide types and sizes, including full-extension, soft-close or an undermount soft-close (Blum).

Slide Extensions

  • Over travel – Utilizes a telescoping design that lets the product extend beyond the cabinet.
  • Full-extension – Utilizes a telescoping design that allows the full length of the product to clear the cabinet.
  • 3/4 extension – Allows the product to open 3/4 of its length

Soft-Close Slides: Slows the product as it closes, ensuring that it doesn’t slam.

Rev-A-Motion®: Full extension with 1-1/2” over travel, ball bearing, 150 lb. rated soft-open, soft-close (US Patent No. 8,091,971)

Ball-Bearing Slides: Features lubricated bearings that move drawers allowing smooth opening and closing action. These slides typically have a release feature for easy product removal.


Not every cabinet is the same and is why we offer different mounting options that include waste containers that mount to the cabinet floors and/or sidewalls and in counter tops. Many require and include our patented door mounting brackets that allow you to use the product as you would any other cabinet in your home and ensures a custom look.

Face Frame
Face Frame cabinets incorporate a wood “frame” around the front of the outer edge of the cabinet box.

They are considered more traditional and offer some style variation based on the amount of door overlay, which is the extent the door covers or “lays-over” the face frame.

  • Full-overlay – Door and drawers completely “fully” cover the face frame
  • Partial-overlay – Door and drawers cover only “part” of the frame
  • Full-inset – Doors and drawers are made to fit within “inside” the face frame opening

Full Access
Full Access cabinets also referred to as “frameless” they offer a bit more accessibility than framed cabinets. This is because in the construction there is no inside edge of a frame that’s partially blocking the perimeter of the cabinet opening.

Described as a “European” or “Contemporary” style of cabinet, the doors are typically full-overlay (covering the entire front of the cabinet box) though some can be made as full-inset.
