Recycling: It's easy when it's convenient
Mary and I have been segregating our paper/cardboard, glass/cans/plastic, and 5-cent deposit bottles from the rest of our trash for quite awhile now.
At first, we had bins setup in the garage, but that was impractical. No one is going to walk out to the garage to toss out an empty can of corn. If you want people to do something, it needs to be convenient, so we purchased three bins that go with our kitchen décor which sit within two steps of the trash compactor.
