Put a recycle bin in your kitchen and start recycling!

Placing a small, easily accessible recycle bin in your kitchen is an easy way to encourage you to recycle those plastic containers, bottles, cardboard boxes and other recyclables that you would normally just toss in your trashcan out of convenience. Most cities will provide you with a free recycle bin. I find that I just keep my big ol’ recycle bin out in the garage because it is too big (and unattractive) to keep in my kitchen. Unfortunately, by not having a designated recycle bin in my kitchen, I fail to recycle as much as I should. To remedy this, I recently added a small plastic bin and designated it for recyclables only. My kitchen recycle bin fits neatly next to my fridge and I’ve noticed a huge change in my recycling behavior!

I have recently been poking around online to find a more attractive and innovative recycle bin idea. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Get the classic steel recycle bins in the picture above. They are great for separating out paper, glass and plastic recyclables.

These Kangaroom Recycle Bags are a fun twist on the boring old recycle bin.
