Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler

I want to recycle- I really do! But in our neck of the woods our recycling company is so darn picky it is down right impossible to recycle! When we first moved here, I recycled everything I could and stood inside in disbelief as the guys got out of the recycling truck, threw all the cardboard back in my yard- and took the rest! I was left with a huge mess to clean up, and cardboard I did not know what to do with!

I gave up on recycling after that. The two main things we end up throwing away that can be recycled are cardboard and bottles. Our recycling company will pick up bottles, but the cardboard has to be driven to a specific dumpster, at a specific time and with six kids I just do not have time to sort it all.

So you can see why I was ecstatic to try out the brand new Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler!! This two-unit bin allows me to sort  my recyclables as I recycle them! The top unit is perfect for bottles and cans that end up out side in a bin anyways, and features a fold away handle that makes it easy to take out and empty into your recycling bin. The lower bin tilts out for easy access, and holds an 8 gallon trash bag in place with the Liner Lock system. We rip all our cardboard and put it in here- and carry the bin with us (with the built-in handles) to the dumpster when ever it gets full!

Features Include

  • Contain trash and recyclables all in one location or sort your recyclables
  • Sleek design blends into kitchen décor
  • Features LinerLock™ bag management in lower bin
  • Removable lid
  • Fold-away handles
  • 5.8 gal sorting bin
  • 7.4 gal tilt out bin with Liner Lock™ handles
  • Total capacity = 13.2 gal
  • Perfect for multi-stream or single stream recycling

The Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler has allowed my entire family to recycle again!

  72. Rebecca Smith says:

    I’ve just moved to an area that has a recycling service. After 2 years of not recycling and just trying to limit waste, it’s a new concept for me. Sometimes I forget, but I’m getting better at reaching for the recycling instead of the trash!

    Yes, we recycle. And my employer actually pays extra to recycle nearly everything (we pride ourselves on being a very “green” organization), so anything that the city won’t take, I bring to work to have recycled here!

    We used to live in Illinois, where they didn’t recycle in the community where we lived. We would save all our recycling and bring it with us on weekends when we’d visit family in Wisconsin. I just couldn’t bring myself to throwing away something that I knew could be recycled. 😉

    yes, we have an open bin that we throw everything in and a huge can outside we dump it all into. It’s a pain because my 15 month old believes the stuff in the recycling bin is for him to play with (cans, paper and everything else.) This would solve that problem.

  89. bina edwards says:

    I just got notification that I won this from, so if my name comes up you will have to do another one, thanks so much

  121. Jessica Smith says:

    We don’t have recycling where I live BUT I still recycle and drive it to where it can be dropped off! This would be so handy since right now we use brown paper bags!

  134. Amy Green says:

    I have to admit, I do enjoy recycling myself. This trash can would be a big help for me. It would save a lot of time for when I need to separate tin cans from plastic water bottles.
