Turning Old Plastic Containers to Recycling Bins

If you care about the environment and want to participate in saving the mother earth, you can start recycling at home. There are numerous ways on how to do it, as the article of the above link mentions. One of them is using unused plastic containers as recycling bins.

Almost every household has plastic containers. They can be in the form of 5 gallon buckets, 4 gallon square buckets, or even plastic drums. If you have one of these, you can already start your home recycling program.

We will need several containers for different types of wastes. You can simply sort them into two: organic and inorganic waste bins, or dedicate four containers for different waste materials. To make it easier for the whole family to throw the right waste to the right bin, you may paint the containers in bright colors. For example, green for organic wastes, blue for paper wastes, red for plastic, and yellow for cans.

Trash Recycling with Disposal Containers

Easy, right? If you have a big household that produces more wastes than others or you don’t want to make too often runs to the recycling company, do consider getting bigger containers for this purpose. Why not use used plastic drums? Not only do you reuse these plastic drums, minimizing the creation of new plastic materials, but you also use them to contain things to be recycled! This is also ideal for companies or factories that want to take part in recycling program. Used plastic drum is your answer to create your recycling bins. Simply paint what the drum is dedicated for or have one of these recycling stickers/decals and you’re good to go in the recycling surge.

Happy recycling!
