Do you recycle? I try to… but having 2 different bins is such a pain. We have the trash can inside and the recycle bin in the garage. Most of the time my husband just throws away the recycling! Drives me crazy! Well, thanks to Rubbermaid we can stay organized and recycle with ease! Rubbermaid sent me the 2-in-1 Recycler to review.
Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler is the perfect solution for containing waste and recycling all in one location! Or if you need a place to sort recyclables, then this is a great tool for you. We chose to use it as our new trashcan/plastic bottle recycle center. We don’t drink a lot of soda, so a little trash can in the garage for aluminum is just fine for us. However, we do have tons of plastic to recycle… so it makes sense to have a waste/recycle center inside.
Features of the 2-in-1 Recycler 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 2-in-1 Recycler fits more recyclables while using 25% less floor space compared to typical divided containers. With a small kitchen, this space saver is greatly appreciated. I was able to squeeze it next to my book shelf, just outside of the kitchen. We now use the top container for plastic bottles and the larger container for trash. It’s so nice to have a recycle center inside. Kids love it too! It’s easy for them to throw their water bottles into the bin (where the garage door has a child proof door lock…so mommy and daddy always had to recycle for them).
The LinerLock™ is BRILLIANT! Okay… so maybe I am easy to please. But when I through away trash, the last thing I want is the bag to slip. The LinerLock™ holds the bag in place, even when we throw away something heavy…it stays put!
Another bonus for us is the easy to open step! With two Italian Greyhounds who like to dumpster dive, this is the BEST trashcan to keep their little noses OUT of the trash!
The only improvement that could be made is making the bottom bin a little larger. I have 13 gallon size trash bags…and the bottom bin is only 8 gallons. However, it forces us to take the trash out more often (which in this household is NOT a bad thing).
