Move Your Empty Garbage Bins More Efficiently

Move Your Empty Garbage Bins More Efficiently

It’s not the world’s worst chore, but having to drag in multiple bins after garbage collection seems an inefficient use of your time. Chris Vik solved that problem in an inventive manner, placing the smaller empty bin inside the larger before taking them inside.

This won’t work for everyone: some councils (like mine) have identically sized bins for recycling, general waste and green waste. It won’t save you time when you take the bins out, and the effort of inserting and then removing the bin would seem more worthwhile if you have a very long driveway or need to steer carefully around parked cars. I’ve tended to favour the dragging one bin on each arm approach, but that’s easier when you’re taller. If you have other strategies for bin management, share them in the comments.

I don’t know why people don’t do this more often [Chris Vik]
