In this Badge Bit, you will setup a home recycling system.  (Note that this BB is part of an 2-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Alice List. You must complete two Badge Bits in the Alice List.)

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:

      - research pick-up schedule if applicable
      - create a multi-bin system and label the bins

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:

   - a picture of your multi-bin system with labels
          * the labels must say what the destination is and what they require (clean, labels okay, etc.)
   - a statement of your pickup schedule, or information on where you plan to take your recyclables
