How To Organize Your Recycling at Home

If you are a family that recycles you know that it can be tough at times to keep all that junk organized before it is picked up. The team at Mr Junk in Canton, GA shares tips on:

How to Organize Your Recycling:


  • Decide where the best place to keep your recycling is in your home. Some people like to use their kitchen and organize a cabinet or two to keep their recycling stored until it is picked up. While others prefer having it set up in the basement or garage for easier transport to the outside pick up.  Once you have made this decision you will just need to take a few more steps to get your recycling piles organized.
  • Separate Glass, Plastic, and Metal. Depending on your particular recycling service you will need to make sure you recycle certain items and not others. Check with your service to be sure you aren’t hanging on to something to recycle that they won’t accept. To keep things simple for your family label your bins accordingly.
  • Keep Paper and Cardboard stored separately as well. Most recycling places require you to sort your items like these so go ahead and get bins and label them for Paper and Cardboard.
  • If you have room in a closet or cabinet or even shelves keeping these things stored in one of those areas will keep the rest of your home feeling less cluttered. That way you won’t be tempted to give up on your recycling adventure just because it can be a big mess.

What do you do if you have large or small  items that can’t be recycled but need to be gotten rid of? Do you have an old sofa or refrigerator that is taking up valuable space in your garage or kitchen that could be used for your new recycling center in your home?
