Recycling Bin Labels

imageHope everyone had a great weekend! We spent a rainy, dreary Saturday at the library picking out books. But that’s not what this post is about. I want to talk recycling!

We’re very guilty about not recycling at our house. I finally broke down and bought three recycling bins to helpĀ imageout our family. However, they didn’t come with labels so I decided to make my own!

I could have just used my label maker, but I wanted pictures so the kids could help put things in the correct bins, too. So I found pictures of each item and made signs using my word processor. Easy peasy.

Right now they’re stuck on there with regular Scotch tape, but I hope to get some more industrial strength stuff down the road to make them last longer.

All in all, it’s worked pretty well– no more trying to remember which bin is which, and I think it looks really good! Down the road, I hope this helps the kids learn how to recycle, too.
