A couple of winters ago I started to put my recycle bins right outside my kitchen window. I did this because a) I am smart and b) I am lazy. Not necessarily in that order.
All winter long I could just open up my kitchen window and throw my recyclables into their appropriate bin. Come summertime I’d have to drag the recycle bins away from the window to a less visible, less convenient part of the yard because I didn’t want big ugly recycle bins right out there in the open looking like their ugly selves.
