Simple but effective. I went with a paper bag so it can be burnable too and easily swapped out as needed.

Since it's warm right now and we haven't been doing fires for a while, we have quite a bit of burnables piled up.

We do the burn bag, as well.  Not everyone in my household follows rules well :-(, so we're down to newspapers, junk mail, and small boxes.  The labeling is for them. I got tired of fishing out things that didn't belong in there.  The rest of us are pretty good about removing plastic, foil, etc and not filling the bag with things that have food residue on them.  I keep it under the counter next to the kitchen since the table and counter are usually where burnables come into the house.

ETA: That's not showing up very well.  It's labeled:
Adolebitque

junk mail
boxes from packaged stuff
- (break them down, please; remove any plastic; no food residue)
newspaper

NOTHING ELSE
