Recycling has become an essential part of preserving the world we live in, with more than 25% of United States residents participating in the act. Creating a station and system in your home can help to integrate recycling into your every day routine, making it an easy task for all members of your family to keep up with.
To make recycling easy and efficient, find a place to build your system that makes the most sense for you and your family, whether it is in the kitchen, basement, garage, or near the back door. Placing 5 Gallon Wastebaskets
under the kitchen sink or 5.2 Gallon Touch-Top Wastebaskets
in the utility closet are helpful ways of catching your recyclables conveniently in the kitchen where most items are used and disposed. Creating a system near the back door or in the mudroom is easy and neat with Deep Ultra™ Baskets
, and the durable lids and tight-clasping latches on the 24 Quart Latching Utility Cans
provide a secure way to organize recyclables in the garage.
When recycling, materials should be separated into cans, plastic and paper to make it easier for collection. By stacking three Stacking Utility Bins
on top of each other, you can create a system that uses vertical space and allows for easy disposal of your recyclables. Labeling each basket or bin with a permanent marker or adhesive stickers can help keep all members of the family sorting and organizing recyclables efficiently.
