We've been thinking of reevaluating our own recycling system at home. With a baby crawling around, we don't want bins with glass bottles or cans to be accessible, but we're also a little afraid that if they're out of sight- like for example, under the sink, they might also be out of mind. Just where is the best place for those recycling bins?

We headed over to Re-nest for some inspiration and found these:

Containers for Recycling and Compost.

5 Styles for Recycling Stations.

Pegboard Recycling Station.

Depending on the age of your kids, it is definitely worth taking a moment to figure out the best place for these bins regardless of the style you choose- for safety reasons when they're younger, and to teach them and and allow them to participate in the process when they're older.

Share your ideas and what works for you and your family!
