359/365 Look down: recycle bin

I'm waging a bit of a battle with this recycle bin right now. Well, maybe "battle" is too strong a word. But "dilemma" doesn't quite cut it.

What bin to use? Where to put it? How to keep it convenient?

Right now, this clear plastic tub lives in my kitchen, against a wall, in plain sight. Not attractive by any means, but definitely convenient. If I had flexible cabinet/storage space, I might be able to tuck it away. But my small kitchen just can't accommodate that.

For now, it catches my recyclables until I tote it out to the garage and dump the contents into a larger plastic tub.

My dilemma/battle lies in coming up with a new system that is both visually attractive (or at the least, not an eyesore) and handy. I've been doing some online searching for ideas but haven't landed on one yet.

Any suggestions? What works for you?
