When we were moving into our new place, I had to go to the town water company office to get the water, etc. transferred over to us. When I did, they offered me a free plastic recycling crate to use. We can sit it out with the trash every Tuesday, and the waste management company will pick up both for us.
While I like that they support recycling efforts, and provided the container for free, it’s not really something that I want to set in my kitchen. It’s kind of unsightly and Bubbles would be trying to load and unload it all day long. I also am pretty sure I would trip over it 19 times a day. I didn’t want to just toss everything into a paper bag or box, though; so messy and they would only be good to use a few times before they were destroyed.
