The Rubbermaid 2 In 1 Recycler Has Changed Our Family!



My family has always been the kind of family that means well. We mean to keep up with recycling, composting, growing our own garden, etc, but we never really get around to doing things. Not without a serious kick in the butt, anyway! So, when we received the Rubbermaid 2 in 1 Recycler to review, I thought it would be just the kick in the butt we needed! I was right!

Here's what Rubbermaid has to say about this great product: 

The 2-in-1 Recycler makes recycling easy! This two-unit bin allows you to either contain trash and recyclables all in one location or sort recyclables. The top unit is perfect for collecting recyclables and has 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. Alternatively, you can use the lower bin to sort another type of recyclable and carry it out with the built-in handles.

Isn't it pretty? I love that it is a closed container with lids and all! We currently use a cardboard box in the kitchen floor. We have to throw all the recycling in it, and since we live in the country, drive it to the recycling center, and sort it out ourselves. Honestly, a pain sometimes. But I really want my boys to recycle, so it is important to me to teach them this.

With the Rubbermaid 2 in 1 Recycler, it is so much easier! The bottom tilts out, and you can put a kitchen size garbage bag in there. The top part lifts out, and you can carry it by itself. The bottom lifts out too, and they both have convenient handles.

This really has been a great addition to our household. We are able to just pick up the containers by their handles, and set them in the back of the car when we drive up to the recycling center. Much nicer and easier to handle than our giant cardboard box!


We are really happy with the Rubbermaid 2 in 1 Recycler, and it really has improved our recycling habits! If you are interested in purchasing one, check out Rubbermaid.com where it retails for right around $45.
