We have mixed recycling in our HOA now (nearly everything is recyclable in one dumpster; no sorting required; do need to rinse, though). We reuse a paper bag (from when we forget our canvas bags) or cardboard box (from packages and Costco) to collect it all and then dump the whole thing when it is full. We'll reuse a bag or box several times, if it holds up....boxes last a LOT longer than bags. The bag or box sits on the floor in our kitchen in an out of the way spot that the average visitor doesn't notice.
We had a major problem with ants this summer (unusual) and we walked every single item out to the dumpsters every single time and didn't have a trash can nor a recycling bag/box at all. Benefits and drawbacks. I'm glad the ants are gone now.
