If you’re short on floor space, raise your recycling! There are some really stylish and pretty bags out there, why not choose one to match your colour scheme and hang it on a hook or the door handle?

2. Hide your empties away in a cupboard or drawer
If you aspire to have a streamlined bathroom, stow your empties in a cupboard or drawer until you’ve collected enough to take them to the main recycling bin.
3. Grab a second bin
Make use of that wasted space under the sink and get a bathroom recycling bin for your plastic bottles, aerosols, toilet roll tubes and toothpaste boxes.
4. Re-purpose a basket or box
Got a pretty basket that you don’t dare throw away? Why not turn it into a bathroom recycling bin. If country classic isn’t your thing, you could choose a storage box with a contemporary feel.

5. Want it sorted right now?
If you prefer to get rid of your empties straight away, pop them on the landing or in the dirty laundry basket as soon as you empty them and take them to the recycling bin next time you’re heading downstairs.
