Survey: Recycling Storage

Survey: Recycling Storage

Alejandra Valera

We're thankful (and fortunate) that Berwyn has a Recyclable Materials Program. Every Wednesday, the garbage truck swings by and takes our trash and then a bit later, the RMP truck swings on by and takes our recyclables so that eventually, they end up back in our house in a new incarnation.

Unfortunately, our recycling storage is a little less than organized. Our "bin" consists of a huge cardboard box that sits inside a cabinet in our kitchen. On Wednesdays, we have to lug the box (which by then is quite heavy) to the city-provided bin in the alley.

Fortunately, we don't have to sort our recyclables which is why our trusty box has been in service for three years. Still, we'd like something a bit sturdier and easier to clean than The Box.
