One final matter in the garage deserves your attention since it contributes greatly to clutter. With today's concern over the environment, recycling is becoming more common. Recycling bins are most often kept on the floor, taking up valuable space. You can at least control and reduce the amount of space occupied by using stackable recycling bins. Adding a hand cart keeps you from having to make two or three trips to the curb on trash day. Just wheel the entire three-piece unit -- with its separate loads of glass, aluminum, and plastic -- out of the garage and to the street.
