I'm shattered, so sorry that posts are a bit thin on the ground. I'll try and do something bigger tomorrow.
Recycling unit - top drawer=paper, middle drawer=cardboard, bottom drawer was intended for plastic, until they stopped doing plastic. Now it gets bundled up into carrier bags and we take it down the tip ourselves (or it just sits in the garage for months on end. When I was pregnant, we decided to clear the bags of carrier bags out of the garage. For clarification, these are single carrier bags, each stuffed with as many carrier bags as they can hold, tied by the handles. We put them all in the car and took them to be recycled at Tesco. They filled TWO entire big trolleys. Since then, we've kept it firmly under control, using only reusable bags except on the rare occasion where we forget, and those get recycled straight away). Anyway, bottom drawer had turned into a dumping ground for bits and bobs (and glass, because we don't have much glass).
I cleared it out, and put the glass bottles back in for now as they don't collect until Thursday. Then we're going to use it for a downstairs laundry basket, as J-cub tends to need his clothes changed several times a day, and I change him downstairs for ease, and so there's always a pile of dirty clothes on the floor by the washing machine. Baby clothes are little, see, and you need a hell of a lot of them to fill up a load (and going upstairs to get mine or Jamie's clothes to complete the load would be just Too Much Effort).
