Rubbermaid's Hidden Recycler: Making Recycling Easy and Green

Rubbermaid recently came out with a brand new product called the Hidden Recycler, and I've received one to try in my own home.

I love what Rubbermaid has done with this recycling bin.  It is very portable, sturdy and functional.  Additionally, it is easy to WASH!

It is hard for me to pick a favorite about this bin, but it would have to be how portable it is.  The main bin portion slides easily off the holder (which hangs on the inside of the cabinet door similarly to a wreath hanger) to make it easy to dump into your recycling can, and has a hard plastic handle AND a handle at the bottom of the bag to make it easy to tip and hold onto while you are dumping your recycling into your larger can for recycling pick-up.

I also love that you can mount it to your door using the hangers (slip them on, and slide on the bin), or you can use screws  to make it more permanent.  Using the hangers makes it really easy to take the Hidden Recycler to other rooms while working on projects.

Now I have to admit that I my kitchen cabinets are small... in fact, they are too small to hide the Hidden Recycler under my sink, BUT, I have the perfect cabinet door that it fits on where I keep my mail, which is a HUGE benefit to me as I can stand and sort my mail directly into the recycling bin.

We have 3 boys and a 8 year old trash can so we need a new trash can fast. thanks, simms3710@yahoo.com

This recycling bin could help me because it attaches to the inside of a cabinet. I don't have a lot of space.

Kona said...

I have a small apartment and the recycling currently piles up next to the garbage... this would help keep my house cleaner and make it easy to run the mixed recycling out in one run!

Amanda Lyn said...

I love the fact that it attches to the cabinet door.

I have a small apartment and this would be an awesome product as we now have to buckle down and recycle otherwise 100.00-500.00 fines will be given by the trash police. Thank you for a chance to win this!

This product would help our family stay neatly organized with our recycling

This would be fantastic for our family, they then would not leave all of the recycling on the counter for ME to take out as it seems that I am the only one that has the ability to do so.

Lisa F. said...

I am a recycling fanatic, so anything that helps with the task is a great thing! :)

Leigh said...

We keep our recycling is a plastic trash bag, shoved next to our water heater; this would fix that problem.

DogsMom said...

it would keep dogs from chewing water bottles

Amanda said...

i like that it can be hidden and no one needs to see it then.

Jennifer Clay said...

This would help out my family because it would keep my children out of the recycling stuff!

We've just updated our kitchen and our current (crappy) system no longer fits. Besides, it's pretty. We NEED this!

This would be a great addition as we recycle a lot but put everything in bags! Your review sold me!

This recycler would help me because we don't have house access to our garage, therefore we have to store our recycling in the kitchen - this look like a WAY better system than I am currently using!

Teri Tarrant said...

It would help me by having somewhere out of the way to put our recyclables

ksceviour said...

This would be great to have in my home as I am currently using plastic bags to store my recycles..thanks.

I like that it slides out and just slides back in. Also, I love the idea that it is machine washable.

Amy said...

I like the leak proof inner liner that will save a lot of headaches!

I could totally use this for aluminum recycling, right now they are kept in a grocery bag hanging off the pantry door. Not a pretty sight

Jamie Leigh Martin said...

We need this; makes it easier.

Phoenix said...

I recycle everything I can, so this would be a great help.

Sue2Sueper said...

This would certainly help in terms of cleanliness and organization. Right now we have an open cardboard box lined with a plastic bag. The Kitchen needs a facelift.

Jamie Leigh Martin said...

It would make our kitchen look less messy!

Biki said...

This would be a huge help as I'm living in a older style home that doesn't have that much space so it's hard to have separate tubs for the different recylcing in addition to compost

Velvet Hubler said...

This would be amazing for us to put our soda cans and bottles in and hide it in the cupboard how great!

I love to recycle, but having it out in full view is not what I want to do. This is perfect!!!

Amanda Lyn said...

i would love to win this to keep my recycleables out of view

Farrah Morelli said...

I could hide my Recyclable can!
