Creative upcycling ideas for "stuff" around your house

from the Family Handyman

Light-Duty Extension Cord Storage

To keep light-duty extension cords organized, slide them into toilet paper or paper towel tubes. Write the length of the cord on the tubes before you put them in a drawer or bin. You'll be able to find the right cord easily with this extension cord storage hack, plus you've made good use of the tubes.

 

 

 

Milk Jug Scoop

Cut off the top of an empty gallon or half-gallon milk jug with scissors. It helps to draw the cut line with a marker first. Clean up the cut to make sure there are no sharp edges. Replace the jug cap and you have a handy scoop for pet food, potting soil, etc. Remove the cap and you can use the scoop as a funnel!

 

 

Paper Towel Roll Bag Storage

There are many uses for plastic grocery bags in a workshop. You can use them to seal up brushes and rollers during a painting project, so you don't have to wash so much stuff between coats. The point is, it's worth keeping a handful of plastic grocery bags on hand in a worshop, and here is a tip to store them. Stuff as many plastic grocery bags as possible into an empty paper towel roll, then toss the roll in a drawer or cabinet. The cardboard tube keeps the bags contained, and it's easy to pull one out at a time when you need it.

 

 

Coffee Cup

Try using an old coffee mug or tea cup to grow some small plants. Try an oversized mug to held flowers on your dining table.

 

Reduce - REUSE - Recycle

 

 

 
RECYCLE COACH
 
Do you know what day recycling is picked up? How about the proper way to dispose of an old air conditioner unit? All that information and much more is now available at your fingertips via the RECYCLE COACH app.
 
It's simple and easy to use.
To see your zone, just click on "View Schedule" and type in your address.
 


 
 
This free app provides residents in The Borough of Sayreville with sanitation and recycling information specific to their zone. The app along with our website features a monthly calendar of sanitation and recycling pick-up days, a search function that provides information on the proper way to dispose of specific items and tips on ways to reduce waste. Users can also set reminders to inform them of sanitation and recycling pick-up days, as well as directly report problems to the Public Works Department.
 
New Jersey has become the first state to bring RECYCLE COACH technology, free of charge, to all resdients to help increase recycling rates statewide and provide information in a simple, clear, and concise manner. Thanks to the Department of Environmental Protection who purchased RECYCLE COACH'S online technology, Sayreville residents can now access information through their smart devices and computer in 2019.

 

The RECYCLE COACH application download is available on the Google Play and Apple Store for free.
