Our recycling habits over the last year of us living in this home (where we pay the garbage bill) has evolved tremendously. *Horrible to admit, I know*
Unfortunately – until a few months ago – it looked like a whole lot of garbage piling up in the corner of the kitchen.
We would put out a paper bag, and the bag got more and more full, balancing one item on top of the other – until the balancing act failed. THAT’s when would bring it down to the recycle bin.
(Garbage is my husbands ONE job that I refuse to give in to, so yes, it piles up sometimes.)
I never really thought about a using a container. — That is until Rubbermaid contacted me about their 2-in-1 container.
We don’t have to sort our recycling because it all gets put into the same can – but having an enclosed place for our recycling? Genius.
*I* have even brought the can downstairs a few times to dump it out *GASP* I know!!!
|Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler is an all-in-one location for sorting recyclables. The features of this product include:
- Keeps recyclables off the counter by giving them a place to live in your kitchen
- The bottom tilt out bin holds a standard 8-gallon trash bag AND features LinerLock bag management, so your bag stays put and does not slip
- Both the top and bottom bin have convenient handles when needed to transport recyclables to wherever your recycling is stored for pick-up or transport
- The 2-in-1 Recycler fits more recyclables while using 25% less floor space compared to typical divided containers
- Made with recyclable materials, and is recyclable itself
If you have to sort recycling, I think this would be a great addition to the kitchen – in that you can keep things separated in the compartments.
I do feel like it gets full really fast. But then again, so did my corner of kitchen when I used paper bags to collect and stack recycling. It might also help if I broke down all the boxes and stepped on the plastic bottles before putting them in the 2-in-1 Recycler. But, That takes effort
I am often trying to rearrange the can to fit more things in, and then I realize that it is just a quick lift and carry to get downstairs to have an empty container!
I took it all apart today to take the pictures – and Andrew put it all back together by himself. He’s 3. So If you’re looking for a great job for kids to help you with, this would be a great place to start!
The 2-in-1 Recycler is available for purchase online at Rubbermaid.com as well as available in store at Meijer and retails for appx. $43.99.
