We have a local recycling centre that allows bulk loads to be processed without having to put each item in individually and without having to separate glass and aluminium. So to collect the cans and bottles I "recycled" an old trampoline frame, bed frame, corrugated iron, shopping trolley wheels and old steel rod to create a frame and a hinged weatherproof lid that supports and protects an old wool bag.
The "spikes" are used to drain the cans and bottles before putting them into the bag.
So far so good, and a full bag represents around $70 in return...
The corrugated iron I used is interesting as they're possibly sheets from early post WW2. The intriguing thing is the thickness - approximately 2.5 mm thick, making each sheet around 40 kg in weight. I went online years ago to try to find the history on these sheets on various Australian forums with no luck, other than they may have been made for concrete form-work.
What a great project @Noyade! That will certainly assist in the recycling process.
You're right about that corrugated, it's impressively thick, and I've seen nothing like it.
Many thanks for sharing.
