I'm embarassed to say that we don't recycle right now. We have moved 3 going on 4 times in the past 2 years and have had one baby with one on the way. This is my pathetic excuse. We need something easy. We live in Montana, there is no pick up service only drop off, which is fine, but I need something that.....I can keep clean easy (suggestions), stackable?, easy to carry when it gets full. I'm so disgusted with the amount of waste we produce. Suggestions on that would be good too, if you want.

I've seen a lot of nice options for recycling storage at Menard's (like Lowe's)...

yrs ago when I lived in Columbus it was the same deal, no pick up only drop off. I had hooks/nails in the basement rafters and strung the milk jugs onto a string. I would tie the first jug to the string at the handle then lace the rest onto the string through the handle. All cardboard, like cereal boxes, etc. were broken down and put in paper grocery bags or into another box. for cans I had a large box lined with a plastic bag and when that was full we (me & 3 kids) would load the van and take it to the drop off area. I also had a large box lined with a plastic bag for the shampoo bottles, etc. this was all stored in the unfinished half of the basement and of course I was washing my trash!
