According to Real Simple magazine, most of us are doing a pretty good job when it comes to recycling. The publication reports that Americans recycle about a third of their trash, a number that has doubled in the past 20 years.
But there’s always room for improvement, especially considering that many people still aren’t on the recycling bandwagon. Experts say one of the easiest ways to ensure you’re recycling as much as possible is to set up a recycling center in your home.
According to Real Simple, the first step is to contact your city or town to get a comprehensive list of what items they recycle. Making the center accessible by using one in a convenient location is important to ensure success as well.
Many people choose to store recyclables in the kitchen before sorting them for collection in the mudroom, garage or other area.
Installing a Rack Sack Trash System exclusively for use to collect recyclables may be an easy way to make the process go smoother. This trash system gets mounted on the back of a cabinet door and is ideal to collect items you wish to recycle.
The Kitchen Rack Sack frame is designed to hold either 3 or 5 gallon Rack Sack Refill Bags. It also contains a storage lid that enables users to keep a 25 bag pack of Rack Sack Refill Bags in an easy-to-access area.
