Try a separate bin for each of your recyclables, with bigger ones for higher use items (like maybe plastic or paper) and smaller ones for less common. A picture of what should go inside makes them easy to sort.
Some stuff you just use all the time. We thought it’d be practical to hang a couple of bags by the door for things like plastic bottles and or daily newspapers so you could take them out for collection easily.
Of course recycling can feel a chore if the one person does it all the time. One solution could be an easy roster, so everyone can help.
Compost and general rubbish are usually the most practical stored under the sink. If you’re a coffee fan, a good way of getting rid of any decomposing smells is by sprinkling used coffee grounds over the top. Not into coffee? Baking soda works just as well.
