When I went to college, the University of Pittsburgh was starting a recycling program and I was hooked. I even brought things back to school just so I could recycle them!! Paper was the biggest load. I think it is one of the biggest problem most families have when it comes to clutter. Several years ago I found out about Abitibi (though now it's called Paper Retriever) at a local college. Since leaving college, I had no way of recycling paper other than burning them. Yah, probably worse than just throwing them away!
A local high school obtained one of their containers and I was in Heaven! I bought a cute plastic tub that would hold my paper until I could make a run. Except, I would get lazy about it and my basket would runeth over. And over......until somedays I would end up having to fill trash bags with the paper in order to get them to the bin. I would still carry my nice plastic tub because it was easy to carry and I liked it.
