Being environmentally conscious and a clutter bug don’t have to go hand and hand if you like to recycle. Instead of leaving cans, plastic bottles and other items laying around the kitchen of your Augusta new home, check out some recycling solutions from Keystone Homes to ‘clean up’ the transition from the kitchen counter to the garage recycling bin.
Hiding in Plain Sight – One great organization solution is to create a DIY under-the-counter solution that works for you, depending on your recycling preferences or needs. If you need a simple paper bin, perhaps adding a container is all you need to do. Or if you’re feeling handy, try building your own separated bins for under your cabinet and install a ball bearing track for easy access.
Double the Fun – Hiding your unsightly recyclable piles in a kitchen cabinet can be easy with a double-slide out system, such as the one from Organize-It. By having two plastic bins on a slide out cabinet, recycling is hidden away and organized, leaving no more eyesores in your beautiful kitchen!
Baskets – Pier 1 Imports features eco-friendly baskets woven from metal and recycled newspapers, which are perfect for storing magazines and newspapers. These baskets add beauty and function to any space, and can be placed in your kitchen as well as other rooms of your home.
Bag a Solution – Gaiam, an environmentally friendly goods provider, sells wonderful folding recycling bags that are leak-proof and perfect for getting your kids involved in recycling. The brightly colored bags provide images to help children sort recyclables, and the Velcro tabs make opening and securing them easy.
