Kitchen Recycling Center: How To Create Your Own.
Under the sink, keep plastic tubs for recycling aluminum, glass, and plastic.
Let the kids do this. They'll love it.
They'll even like taking it out to the garage. Really.
And while you're at it, start a composting pail (with a tight-fitting lid) with non-meat table scraps.
It's the ultimate recycling that gives back - you can use the composted material to feed and grow your backyard garden.
Yes, the worms composting requires can make some of us a bit squeamish - but you can compost without worms.
Get started making compost happen in your home here.
