That Old Wicker Basket Is Perfect For Recyclables
If that old wicker basket is falling apart at the seams, you could easily upcycle it and use it to store recyclables. It’s a lot nicer than having a brightly colored recycling bin. You’re also reusing an old item in your home, which means you’re saving on waste. If you have multiple wicker baskets, you can use one for cans, one for glass, and one for plastic. If you still feel like using the wicker basket, you could paint it to turn it into something bright and beautiful, or cut it and use it as a headboard (Bob Vila).
