Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Recycling cans
We recycle tin cans from food (we use mostly canned green beans or corn, kidney beans, or black olives!). I dislike annoying clutter/junk, but I do like recycling (it's like trash pick-up, only free!). Here is how I make it work for me! :)
- Before I open a can of something, I remove the label and throw it away. This means I never have to deal with icky wet labels after I've emptied the food from the can!
- As soon as the can is empty, I rinse it and allow it to drip dry (either turned upside-down in a clean sink or on the counter).
- On our enclosed porch, I have a medium-sized container for recyclable items. I have large boxes/bags in the garage for sorting the different recyclables (our garage isn't attached to our house).
- Whenever I take a bag of trash to the garage, I also take the container of recyclables, and sort them into the proper places and then bring the container back inside.
Not rocket science or anything, but it keeps the house clutter-free! :)
