Disclosure: I received the Hidden Recycler for free from Rubbermaid to conduct this review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
We have always been hit and miss with our recycling efforts. I try to recycle as many things as I can, but it is difficult when you have no place to put things. Setting it out on the counter takes up valuable counter space and we also run the risk of having our toddler getting into it. Recently, we were given the opportunity to try the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler to help solve our issues with recycling. Using this recycler is so convenient for us and we are so pleased to have something that is out of reach from our daughter.
The Hidden Recycler attaches to the inside of your cabinet to keep it out of sight. It fits perfectly under our sink, which is nice because we also have safety locks for our cabinets there. The recycler is simple to assemble and the bag is held in securely so you don’t run the risk of losing the bag into the can, like you do with many kitchen trash cans.
My favorite part of this recycler is that the bag is leak-proof and is machine washable! It is so easy to clean and makes recycling hassle free.
The 5 gallon bag is soft and flexible, making it easy to fit it into a cabinet containing a few other items. We found it to be a perfect fit under our sink where we keep our dishwashing detergent and other household cleaners. The bag itself can hold up to 36 12oz cans!
You can purchase the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler online for $17.59 or at a Meijer store near you.
Rubbermaid also has a blog, called Adventures in Organization where you can find great organization tips and tricks. I recently visited their blog to find out some easier ways to organize my pots and pans!
