For a while, I’ve been searching for a recycling system for my kitchen. Mail, cans, and other recyclables tend to stack up in our kitchen because it’s sort of a pain (read: we’re lazy) to always have to carry the recyclables into our garage where our large recycling bins are.
I’d love a recycling sorting station like one of these, but simply don’t have the room.
Finally, I stumbled onto the simplest solution that was under my nose the entire time. I took a couple of plastic storage bins which I already had and placed them on the floor of my kitchen pantry. One for paper/cardboard and one for cans/bottles (my town collects these together). Voila, instant recycling center!
Now we have a convenient place to stash our recyclables. Once the bins get too full, we simply empty them into larger containers in our garage. It’s so simple I can’t believe it took me this long to figure it out!
Any other recycling suggestions? How do you sort your recycling at home?
