DIY Recycling Tower and Giveaway

Recycling has never looked so good!  Friends I'm so excited to share with you our new recycling tower:

Why I ever waited three years to build this is beyond me?  It's a dream to have the recycling up off the floor at waist level, it's so convienent with easy access plus makes use of the vertical space in our garage.  #winning  And bonus - now in that vertical space we also have storage shelves for bulk items.

You can download the free plans to build your own recycling tower here AND the nice folks at Ryobi Tools have offered a giveaway of $300 worth of tools of your choice!  Keep reading to enter the giveaway.

First a few building notes:

In step 1 be sure to build mirror images of the two sides.  The recycling bins sit on slanted shelves for easier access so you want the mitered side shelf supports to mirror each other.

I left about 20" between the slanted shelves for easy access depositing recycling into the bins and getting the bins in and out.  The remaining storage shelves were equally spaced above.  Determine what your storage needs are and add as many or few shelves as you need.  

Down below you'll find the entry form for this awesome giveaway of $300 worth of Ryobi power tools because everyone needs more tools!  You pick which tools would be useful to you, what don't you have in your workshop that you desparately need?
