With only 50 percent of Americans recycling aluminum cans, enough aluminum is thrown away every three months to rebuild our entire commercial air fleet. Because sorting and storing recyclables seem to be two of the biggest obstacles to actually recycling, here are some easy tips to make the process more manageable.
Place your recycling bins in kitchen cabinets close to the sink, because many recyclables need to be rinsed. If you’re hesitant to give up cabinet space, then rethink your storage. Move rarely used pots and small appliances to an overhead rack or another cabinet.
You can fit a four-bin pullout into a 27-inch base cabinet. A corner cabinet with a lazy-susan-type rack may be awkward for kitchen utensils but perfect for recycling bins. For small kitchens, store bins on the lower shelf of a mobile work cart.
Between pickups, clean out your recycling bins with an Antibacterial All Purpose Heavy Duty Cleaner to remove any residual grime and leave a fresh scent.
