I bet you have to get out of the chair to use it.

Now we have something to improve on!

Wow!
Recycling at it's best!
Why didn't I think of that?!
(I like their choice of beverage! - "Chateau Lite" - vintage: May, 2011?) :)

I have thought of doing that. I could add it under the kitchen sink and have it go into the crawlspace. Every 2 weeks I'd go get the bin and put it out on the street. Awesome idea. :D

Could even go a step further and have an automatic crushing system to fit more in one bin.

I don't know; can't she just drop it in the tube while she's at the fridge getting another cold one?

There are all kinds of improvements possible!
- Compactor at the end
- Infrared or laser sensor at the end to detect when it's full and sound an alarm or,
- Motorized system to lift can, open egress window and put it outside
- Computerized scale to weigh cans and download current scrap aluminum weight for estimated recycling value, or
- Even better, call beer delivery service when you're running low!

I think if your filling a 35gal trash can with any regularity keged beer would be the best choice. $100 for old fridge $150 for taps and hoses and used co2 tank= much cheaper beer and no waste to haul away.

True, but I would reroute the pipe to the bathroom in the basement - fill & drain at the same time

We're very like minded.

I worked at a crippled guys house once who had a beer tap on his kitchen backsplash and also had one on a long hose that hung from his easychair. When we pulled up to his house there was a snowmobile wraped around pole in his front yard that looked like it had been there for years. Turns out that he got drunk and wrecked it..........thats how he became crippled. He liked to drink alot.........thats the reason I'll never ride a snowmobile.
