Monofilament Recycling Bin Assembly and Installation
Materials for one container:
- Cut PVC pipe into 2 foot long pieces using a hacksaw or reciprocating saw (a 12 inch metal blade works well). Use a deburring tool or sandpaper to remove PVC “burrs” around edges.
- Working in a well-ventilated area, apply PVC glue the inside of one end of the elbow (it does not matter which end). Press the elbow onto the pipe.
- Press the shower drain into the other end of the pipe (do not glue in place).
- Apply decals.
- Make a hooked tool to remove the shower drain to empty the container.
