Make Your Own Home Recycling Centre

We could all do a little more to make our homes greener and one of the easiest ways to do this is to start recycling. One of the problems with recycling is that you’re generally required to separate your trash into recyclable categories, which is usually done through having a number of different containers or bins, and this takes up a lot of space and can be a bit of an eye sore. Well we’ve set out to find some creative ideas to build your own home recycling centre which is both functional and looks good.

Here are some of our favorites:
