For the past 9 years I've lived in places where I do not have curbside recycling pick-up. Luckily I've always had access to a recycling center of some sort. However many recycling centers/containers are designed for those with curbside pickup. For a long time we've made do with multiple paper bags to hold all the recyclables. It got messy and cluttered. When we used a single trash can we had to sort into bags before walking it to the recycle center.
Long story short I have settled on this solution: wire shelf on casters from Bed, Bath & Beyond (not quite the right size but at 1/3 the cost of perfect-size shelf it was close-enough), and hanging bags from s-hooks. I just had to sew the bags – I planned on using canvas but then I was walking through Ikea and saw the big blue bags and remembered how people (like Africankelli) were re-fashioning them into other bags. So I bought one big blue bag hoping it would be enough for two smaller bags. I grabbed my seam ripper and ripped out the bottom and side seam as well as the handles. I cut the side piece in half, then determined how big my bottom of each bag could be and cut two bottoms from the original bag bottom. I cut the long straps in half for two sets handles plus cut the short straps up to attach d-rings for hanging.
These two bags hold so much more than the one bin that fit on that shelf plus I'm not worried about rogue liquids weakening paper bags. The handles are also much more comfortable than when I carried a very full paper bag. Success for less than $30. The added bonus is that it holds the washcloths and hand towels I keep at the door to wipe muddy, wet Dog paws (and legs and belly and back and tail) and the top functions as a landing strip for mail and keys and such when we walk in the door.
