10-MINUTE ORGANIZER: Trash and Recycling
Updated: May 19
YOUR GARBAGE MAY NOT BE THE PRETTIEST SIGHT, BUT YOU CAN KEEP IT STREAMLINED AND PRESENTABLE.
TIPS & ADVICE FROM SAME DAY
THE QUICK FIXES
Most garbage comes from the kitchen, so keep all your trash supplies there, ideally under the sink. Free up space by mounting a paper towel holder inside the cabinet door to hold a roll of trash bags (use short screws that won’t pierce the door). Also stock scissors, a box cutter for breaking down packages, and jute twine for bundling paper recyclables.
To keep your trash can as ick-free as possible, stick two Command hooks upside down a few inches below the rim on the outside. When you put in a new bag, loop the drawstrings around the hooks to prevent slippage—and a big mess when you toss in something heavy.
Separating food waste from the rest of your garbage will help stave off bad odors and pests. Use a dual-compartment bin for dry trash and rinsed recyclables. Leave a small lidded container lined with a produce bag on the counter for food scraps; compost the waste or throw it out often.
Have more to get rid of than what will fit into your regular bin? Holidays, visitors, events, and big cleanouts can leave you with every regular bin full and a mountain of stuff still to get rid of taking up space and causing a stink. You could haul it off to the dump yourself or you can save yourself (and your vehicle) the trip and the stink by renting a same-day dumpster rental. Our concrete dumpsters will work perfectly if you've just done a seasonal clean-out or happened to have missed your regular trash day and have a lot of bags all backed up. Have a lot of trash and recycling? Get rid of all of it at the same time in one large dumpster. We have 4 sizes to choose from depending on how much you have to toss out.
