How do you organize your recyclables?

Post  Absinthe Angel on Sun Jan 03, 2010 7:27 pm

This question was posted to one of my lists. And it was something that I can SO relate to, so I thought that I would share the question here as well. I'm wondering if anyone here has any helpful ideas on organizing recyclables in the house that they might like to share?

This has become a serious problem for us...I've been doing this method for a
few years now and the amount of things we recycle is just overwhelming to
handle this way. I loop plastic grocery bags over a chair handle in the
kitchen so it's easier for the kids to drop their recyclables in them, then
we tie them when they get full and transfer them out to my back deck. All of
it, is messy ! The one good thing about this is, everything is already
separated so when we go to the recycle center we just open the bag and dump
everything into the right bin. Every two weeks we have the back of my van
full of these bags.We recycle all aluminum, paper products, glass, cans.,
plastic, etc. It really made me realize how much people waste and throw away
just from the kitchen. We recycle in many other ways, and compost as well,
but my question right now is, how do you all organize and handle the
recyclables from your kitchen ?

I use plastic bins one for each type is easiest and you could also purchase stakable bins sold at discount mass merchant stores. Those are very handy and space saving as they are on wheels and the bins are removable, or to save more money if you have someoe that can make you a stackable bin holder then all you have to buy is the bins. Hope this helps.

Thanks Renee.
I was just telling Matt the other day that maybe we could get some smaller plastic bins and put them under the breakfast table. We never use it anyway. Right now, we rinse them and set them on one counter that doesn't get much use. Then when the counter fills up, we take outside to the plastic bins we have set up. But it makes me crazy seeing all that clutter.
If I were to just use smaller bins under the table like what I have outside, it would get rid of all that crap on my counter. I really can't stand that Mad
