In some locations these days, recycling is mandatory; fines can result if recyclable materials are thrown out with your garbage. But at my local home center, there are few aesthetically pleasing options for sorting and storing recyclables until the weekly collection.

This project is sized to fit the cheerful green “party tubs” I found at the home center (just $8 each), which are 15 1/2″ deep, 21 1/4″ wide and 11″ high. Purchase your bins, buckets or baskets before buying your lumber, as you may need to adjust your sizes to fit whatever receptacles you plan to use.
