When I bought my house, it came with a small recycling bin. Being a nature lover, I try to do my part in saving the world by recycling as much as I can. Fast forward 10 years later and my small recycling bin has started breaking apart. Plus, since my city only picks up recycling once a month, I was left with way more recycling bags then what would fit inside the bin.
This left me searching for a new container. What I found was really expensive at $100-$300! I'm a penny pincher and budget lover so I decided to find a way to make my own at a fraction of the cost!
I found these 32 gallon trash cans with attached lid and wheels for $16. I purchased Krylon Fusion All-in-one (Patriotic Blue) for $4.96.
I also purchased recycling stickers off of Amazon (5 for $6 for $1.20 each). So the total cost for the project was $22.20 before taxes! As I have so much recycling, I bought two which still only comes to $44.40 and well under the price to buy a blue trash can.
