Step 1: Took the trash & recycling to the Dump/Recycling Center (that took a week+ to complete).
Clutter Resolution: Start a new habit of removing the recycling/trash weekly instead of every 6-8 weeks. Don’t let it pile over.
Step 2 : Found a better place to keep the recycling instead of in the garage. By practicing step 1 the trash won’t need to be stored in the garage either as long as there is room for it outside in the cans.
A Better Place to Keep the Recycling:
- I bought a 64 Gallon Wheeled Trash Can to be used for storing the Recycling. Weekly I will wheel this thing to the Subaru and load up for a recycling trip.
- I got a 50 gallon blue bin with a lid in which to store returnable cans, plastics, etc. I put it outside next to the trash cans. It has latches on the sides for the lid which will keep the Racoons out of it.
