He removed the bottom from an old 20-gallon metal garbage can anrt turned it upside down, He puts the plastic bag inside with edges overlapping. It may need to be tied around the edge of (he can to keep it from slipping. When the bag is filled with the grass clippings, you lie it and just lift the can oft the bag. It works great.

It's a thought that occurred lo Valerie Jennings as she sat fazing at the rows of attractive »ttles and jars on shelves in her office at Faberge. the cosmetics company. They just seemed too pretty to be thrown n a dump, she said. The upshot of her ponderings -- after she got permission rom all the bosses -- was a recycling contest within the company to see who would come up with the brightest deas for new uses of still good netals, plastics, glass and the like. What they came up with can be applied to almost any cosmetics one might own. ASTOUNDING SUGGESTIONS In fact, Valerie was as tounded by the little and big suggestions the employes and their families have been send- iing in to the Art-Eco contest. "It illustrates 'you can find some use for just about any little container on the vanity table by giving some thought to its shape and dimensions," Valerie observed. Some recycled articles are tiny -- shiny metal bottle caps upended, with colorful straw utilized everything from metal flowers, that may be set on a eon as suggested by one enr Irani. But then another con- place card for a ladies' hinch- trived a long circus train which containers as "wheels" to an ovel-shaped plastic see-through bath powder container s i d e- urned win an animal placed in it. One of the JoHiest i d e a s is wind chimes, which require a minimum of labor, M»*l Mr tfi» girl who has · drawer full of oU hpaticks. A number of t r, · case* were strung up on a pi*s- Uc (dusting powder) top (or use a piece of wood or card- beard). A meat skewer was used to make the little holes at the top of the case through which yarn was siron« and attached to the top. A loop on top serves to dangle it from · jorch or window for delightful tinkling sounds. Another ieda for t h o s e icks is this one: attach them to a wall plaque with a mirror in the center so that they might serve as holders for scarves, men's ties, chains and the like. NailpoHsh bottles sprayed gold may also be used for the same purpose. , . - " ' " SUI1 another entrant had th« man in the family In mind.
