DIY recycling station with CRAFTSMAN®

Yayyyyy! Today’s the day!

I can finally reveal the two very special projects I worked on for CRAFTSMAN® and the #CRAFTSMANCUPCONTEST.

Project #2 is a DIY recycling station that I’ve been dreaming about for YEARS! I kept sketching it and planning it, but didn’t get around to actually building it until now.

And it’s even better than I’d hoped!

It has five pull-outs — compost, garbage, paper/cardboard, plastic & glass, and cans & bottles (a.k.a. the refundables we can pass along to hockey teams who come door-to-door collecting them).

The compost pull-out is specially designed to hold a small bag — no need for massive

I’m sharing the full tutorial for the DIY recycling station over on, so head over for a list of materials and step-by-step instructions.

While you’re there, enter the CRAFTSMAN® Cup contest for a chance to win a VIP Memorial Cup experience.

The grand prize is four tickets to the 2019 Memorial Cup Championship Game presented by Kia on May 26, and a V.I.P. behind-the-scenes experience — plus airfare, hotel accommodations, CRAFTSMAN® tools and swag, a prepaid Visa and a RONA gift card.

So go read the tutorial — please! — and let me know what you think of the design. Feel free to ask any questions, too, and I’ll do my best to answer them without using terms like “thingamajig.”

Don’t forget to pin this post for later so you can find it again easily when you’re ready to build the most USEFUL garbage / recycling sorting system of all time!
