Convenience is Key

A large part that goes into having a successful recycling system at home is to make it convenient for everyone. If it is a hassle for people, they are more than likely not going to recycle. Make bins that are specifically labeled for different recycling items and create a storage area for them in your kitchen or garage. You can even make the bins easily accessible if they are stored in low areas by adding wheels to the bottom of you bins.

Design your own Station

Sometimes it’s tricky to figure out if an item is recyclable or not. Most cities or recycling centers have lists of items that are recyclable. Recyclable items are not always paper, plastic and cans; there are some items are all around your home you can recycle, such as batteries. This is where creating a recycle station can be beneficial. You can create this countertop station by using old coffee cans and turning them into recycling bins for your old batteries, lightbulbs and other small items.
