As long as we've lived in our apartment, we've been unsatisfied with our recycling system. As shown in the image below, our system has been storing recyclables in the corner nook of our kitchen, until recycling day, when they would be carried to the alley in a box. Clutter and frustration, as often a misplaced cutting board in the drying rack would send wine bottles crashing to the floor.
After some rearranging of the pantry, we've created a little space for a pull out recycling bin! Also, with the space of our kitchen nook opened up, we installed a foldaway IKEA GRUNTEL drying rack. Now things are looking clean and organized, and hopefully we won't have so many instances of broken glass!
