I am very excited to share with you all the Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler. This unassuming piece has turned our messy, disorganized recycling process into an efficient one.
Used to be, as we used a can or jar, it would sit on the counter top until I cleaned up the kitchen that evening and all recyclables went into designated reusable shopping bag which hung from a hook - a hook which was meant to hold something nice, not an eyesore like a green bag filled with cans and jars.
Now, thanks to the Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler, cans and jars go into the top bin, and paper materials go into the bottom bin.
My 8 year old is in charge of recycling. He fully endorses the Recycler.
What used to be a daily trip to the outside recycling bin, has now become and every two day or so trip for him. Good stuff :)
Let me go through the features with you.
- It keeps recyclables off your counter tops and gives them a place to live in your kitchen
- It has two bins.
- Total capacity - 13.2 gallons
- Both top bin and bottom bin offer convenient handles when needed to transport recyclables to where ever your recycling is stored for pick up or transport
- The bottom tilt out bin holds a standard 8 gallon trash bag and features liner lock bag management to hold your bag in place and prevent it from slipping
- The 2-in-1 Recycler uses 25% less floor space compared to typical divided containers
- Lid lifts straight up for easy removal for access to handles during transport and straight up and down for easy replacement of the lid
- Seamless insides for easy clean up
I love that I don't have to use trash bags in this system - keeps the waste down. I simply use the dish sprayer and hot water to rinse the bins out after each dump. Like I said, there are no seams to get gunked up so cleaning is simple.
We've been recycling for at least ten years, and have tried different systems for keeping it running smoothly. The Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler has made the most sense for our family. It seems so simple, but has made the process flow a lot smoother around here, and that is a good thing.
