Like many owners of older homes, I have some major storage issues. There is simply no spot under my cabinets to store recyclables. I have been placing the large ugly bins in my backroom and bringing recyclable items back there, as they are used. Not the most convenient set up, considering the already impractical design of the kitchen.
I was sent a Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler for review a few weeks ago, and am quite pleased with the quality of construction and ease of use. It certainly looks far better than the blue & green bins from the city, and the compact design makes it easy to find a spot for.
Convenient handles on both the top and bottom bins make transporting recyclables simple. The bottom bin tilts out and holds a standard 8-gallon trash bag. The bag is held in place by the LinerLock™ bag system so it stays put without slipping. The Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler is also appropriately made with recycled materials, and is in torn recyclable itself.
I liked my recycler so much, I ended out buying a new Rubbermaid outdoor trash can, a few days after it arrived. It has been very effective at keeping out the opossums that were raiding my trash. I really should pick up another one.
