I've been having issues with my indoors storage solution for plastics. Loose wrappers and containers from food products tend to take an unnecessarily large amount of space and without a way to compress them, even a large box has to be emptied more often that I would like.

Has anyone found a solution for this problem? My research on the topic has only revealed industrial solutions for making usable materials but no solutions for home use. To be clear, I am just looking for an efficient storing method, not a way to reuse the material myself.

  • You're looking for ways to store recyclables before they're transported to recycling facilities? – LShaver Jun 5 at 16:06
  • Just squish it? – Erik Jun 8 at 6:58
  • @LShaver Yes, my current solution is just storing them in a cardboard box but due to the lightweight nature of the items plenty of air ends up between them, making the storing solution inefficient. – JJuntunen Jun 8 at 7:45
