Have you seen the nice containers used to separate your recyclables?
Want a quick and easy way to make some your self that look rather nice?
Where I live there is not a program to pick up recyclables at my curb and we have to take them to the recycle center. Of course taking them there is much easier in bags and having them presorted makes the drop off time no bother at all.
Using these lets you sort your items into bags and has them ready to slide out and take away.
Step 1: Tools and Parts
1) PVC Cutter or Hacksaw
I would recommend the PVC Cutter as it makes no mess.
2) Measuring tape
3) Nice cup of coffee
1) Thirteen (13) feet of PVC pipe
I used 3/4" as it is very sturdy size.
2) Two (2) T's same size as your pipe.
3) Eight (8) 90 degree corners same size as your pipe
Step 2: Cutting the Pipe
Now you need to measure the pipe for cutting into a couple different lengths.
1) Three (3) 20 inch pieces
2) Four (4) 14 inch pieces
3) Four (4) 8 inch pieces
Step 3: Pieces
Gather all of your pieces of cut pipe, corners, and T's.
Step 4: Assembly
Once you have all of the pieces put them together following the picture.
Step 5: Bag It
Put a trash bag in it and fold down the sides.
Now you have a great holder to put recyclables in.
Step 6: Make One for Each Type
Make a few more of them and you can set up a full row to separate your recyclables easily.
