Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets. So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the test.lol
You'll be happy to know that they are all TRUE! I am a little nerdy of course so I started with milk jugs, you can fit 4 if they are uncrushed :O). Then it was onto the 2 liter bottles, I managed to fit 6 uncrushed. Unfortunately I didn't have 36 cans to put into it but I had 18 and I could see it fitting EASILY 36. I really enjoyed that the bag was sturdy enough to hold a decent amount of weight but could also be easily removed for cleanup and was machine washable. There is also a handle which helps you to easily remove it and take it to recycle either in a separate large bin or at the recycle center. I can't wait to pick up a couple more of these to help separate my recyclables.
Rubbermaid had been wonderful enough to offer one of these Hidden Recyclers(a $15.99 value) to one of my readers. If you would like to enter please do so in the Rafflecopter below
