Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway!

I was very excited to try out the new Hidden Recycler from Rubbermaid.  The Hidden Recycler gets recyclables off the counter and hidden out of sight.  The features of the product include:

  • Easy attachment to a cabinet door with hooks included with the product
  • A convenient handle that allows the bag to be easily carried
  • A 5 gallon bag that holds up to 36 12-ounce cans and big enough to fit a milk jug.
  • The bag has a leak-proof liner and is machine washable
  • The bag is soft-sided allowing for flexibility inside any cabinet

Where I live, we don’t have access to recycling facilities for paper, plastic and glass.  But we do have several scrap metal places that take aluminum cans.  I’ve tried recycling them before, but it’s just such a mess to try to save them.  We have a small pantry so there’s not extra room for another can or garbage bag for saving cans.  I abandoned the idea of recycling aluminum cans when Bug got big enough to be mobile, because I didn’t like having a container sitting in the kitchen floor for cans.

Now with the Hidden Recycler, we can start recycling cans again!  It was SUPER easy to attach to the cabinet with the hooks provided.  No tools or screws necessary so it can be moved or removed with no damage to the cabinets.

It fits perfectly in my cabinet under the sink.  Which makes it easy to save cans because they can be rinsed out in the sink and tossed in the bag!  Then with the handle, it can easily be carried downstairs when it’s full and emptied into a larger container in the garage until time to take the cans to recycling.

I recycle aluminum cans, paper and plastics. But I would love to have this to have a place to keep the tin food cans. It would so easy to empty the food out, rinse and save!!!

We already recycle, but everything gets separated into boxes, and those only hold up so long before needing to be replaced. I’d love to have something to help me keep paper, plastics and glass all separated that is also machine washable like this!!!

I already recycle and this would be great for the kids in the house who collect paper and plastic for their Girl Scouts troop. It would help keep everything divided.
