I now have different things going on. I have two stacks of tires set up as compost bins - they work excellently, being black/heat absorbent. Plus they were free and I could keep them out of the landfills. I can't wait to add worms to them.
I am going to write up how to use tires as worm bins and will let you all know once that is up. So this will be documented in case people are curious about it.
I have been using drawers from old furniture as bins now for my recycling sorting. That is working pretty well, and they are free things that are easy to find once you start looking for old furniture people are throwing away.
