My problem? What to do with it as it collects before pick up. We live in a small house without an attached garage. (In my dream home, we have a recycling center in the mud room.)
In my real home, we have a kitchen where we keep the stuff until John hauls it out to the bins outside. We recycle a lot. . .so when I got the opportunity to review the new Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler - I was excited.
Yes excited about recycling . . .and organizing.
The bag is soft-sided and totally flexible. The unit is super easy to assemble too. So I opened my cabinet ready to install (yes there is only one that will work in my kitchen) and saw this. . .
Well now, that's going to work is it? But the unit has easy attachment hardware for a cabinet door with hooks or screws, and I do have this weird towel bar in my pantry/basement doorway.
This is a winner. The unit slipped right on the bar and is now our place for paper. It will hold a week's worth of our paper recycling, keeping it neat and out of the way. However, it's a 5 gallon bad and holds up to 36 12 ounce cans, and is big enough to fit a milk jug. The bag has a leak-proof liner that is machine washable too.
Know what else? The product itself? Is RECYCLABLE!! How clever is that?
So we are giving this product 4 out of 4 stars. It's convenient, it does everything it promises, it looks nice and it's good for the planet!
