First off, a big THANK YOU to Uncle Kevin and Aunt Beth who both gave me Target gift cards for my birthday last month. You guys rock! With the money, I was able to buy some really cool recycling bins (see picture below).
For the last year or so, I've been using kitchen trashcans that I asked for and received off FreeCycle for my "little hobby," as Alex calls it. And while reusing and re-purposing are great, I decided to just go for the new bins--It is my birthday, after all!
I've got six bins now instead of three, so I can separate my clear glass from my brown or green glass. Also, these nifty bins stack. They're shorter so when one or more get full, I can just stash them easily in the trunk of my car and then dump them into the recycle dumpster! No more plastic trash bags to deal with--YAY!
