My city has an excellent recycling program through Recyclebank, which means that we can recycle almost anything and our outdoor recycling container is large. My only problem seems to be that I always have a bunch of papers and cans on the counter ready to go out in the recycling bin, and it just turns into clutter. This is why I was thrilled to try out the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler, which is a great alternative to a regular inside recycle can or container. .
Well, I might as well just face it, I still have clutter on my counters, but at least all the recyclables are now out of sight. I was surprised to discover how easy the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler was to set up, and I was even more impressed with the capacity of the recycling container compared with a regular recycling can. We only use it for cans and bottles, so even if we only empty it once a week it does not fill up, because it can hold up to 36 12-ounce cans. The 5 gallon bag is flexible, which means that it can still fit under the cabinet, even if I have things in there.
The Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler easily attaches to the cabinet door, and it fit perfectly in our under-the-sink cabinet. What really sold me on this product was the fact that I did not have to put in any screws. The Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler can be attached to the cabinet door with the accompanying over-the-cabinet hinges, or it can be screwed in place. I chose the first option, and it works great. The cabinet door still opens and closes without any problems, and it hangs really well.
My kids love the new recycling container so much that asking them to put the cans and bottles in the bag is not a problem, and they are now all eager to take out our recycling. In fact, when we were trying to see how much we could fit into it, it was difficult convincing them to leave the recyclables indoors for a few days.
