I was wondering if there was a more elegant way of going about this. We need to replace that trash can, also. I think we found a double trashcan that we can use one side for recyclables and one side for waste.Out of curiosity, why not use a recycling bin?
I just keep bottles, cans and cardboard in a brown grocery bag (with handles); when it fills up, I drop the entire bag in the larger blue bin outside my apartment building.
I was trying to avoid having the big blue box sitting in my kitchen. I figured other people have been recycling for years - maybe they had an interesting alternative to the ever classic plastic bins.Don't quite follow you.
If you can't be bothered to get a recycling bin, what is it exactly you expect?
Magic vaporizing wands?
Cardboard? You can compost it, burn it, or paper mache it. All of which take more efffort than tossing it in a recyling bin and having the city pick it up for you free.
Household - it's in my kitchen.Big difference in doing it on a household level and commercial level. Which way we talking?
