We are a recycling household. We bag up our aluminum cans, glass bottles, newspaper/paper, plastic bottles, and more. Right now if you looked into the cabinet where we keep all these products before we separate them and bag them, it’s a MESS!! One medium-sized box holds the overflowing recyclables, that literally has to be sorted and emptied daily! One of my kids favorite things to do is this chore because they know when they head to the recycling plant, part of that money we get back is theirs!
Enter the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler, attach this to the inside of your cabinet door and you have something to collect all your recycling, without the mess, and still have room in the cabinet for other kitchen items!
The features of the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler include:
–Gets recyclables off the counter and hidden out of sight
–Easy attachment to a cabinet door with hooks included with the product or screws
–A convenient handle allows the bag to easily be transported to wherever your recycling is stored for pick-up or transport
–A 5 gallon bag that holds up to 36 12-ounce cans and can fit a milk jug
–The bag has a leak-proof liner and is machine washable to make it easy to clean after any unexpected spills
–The bag is soft-sided allowing for flexibility inside any cabinet
–The bag and all packaging is made from recyclable material, and the product is recyclable
Our Take: This is fantastic, my husband wants a second just after having it installed a week! It really cleans up our cabinet, we can both the box and the hidden recycler on the door of the cabinet and pre-sort before we take it all outside! The product hangs over the side of the cabinet easily and the cabinet door closes with no problem. We appreciate the leak-proof liner as we all sometimes toss plastic bottles or cans that may just have a little liquid still in them. Because the items we recycle are empty and light the added handle is easy to lift off the door and carry out to our larger outdoor bins, even the kids can use it without incident. If it were something that was exposed in my kitchen, I may not find the color appealing, but because it’s behind a cabinet door, it really doesn’t matter.You can purchase a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler for $15.99 online, http://www.rubbermaid.com/Category/Pages/ProductDetail.aspx?Prod_ID=RP092016 or at Meijer.
