In my last apartment, my husband used to hang a paper grocery bag on the handle of our front door, which was at least in our kitchen, and he’d call that our recycling center. It would only last a few hours before I’d move it to small cubby in the corner of our kitchen. I hated his system because it was unsightly to look at and he hated mine because it was too hard to put empty bottles into. The point: Recycling in a small apartment is hard. But it’s obviously worth it and something we absolutely do!
We moved recently and our new place came with a pull-out drawer with a trashcan and recycling bin (fancy, I know!), so the issue has resolved itself. But I just found something that makes me want to rethink even our new (totally successful) system.
