Ask any homeschooler what they spend a lot of their time doing and most of them will tell you creating. We are no different. In fact, we work arts in crafts in as much as we possibly can. We also try to keep the supply cost down by using recycled materials.
Rubbermaid sent me a Hidden Recycler to try out and it is now I craft supply collection hub! Before we had the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler, the items that were to be recycled were stacked on the floor near the garbage can. In the way and looking a bit…well…trashy!
The Hidden Recycler attaches to the inside of a cabinet door to collect recyclables out of sight and keeps your counters clear. The bag is durable, machine washable, and made of recycled material. Collect your recyclables and then easily lift the bag from the lid and cabinet by the handle to take them out to your recycle bin.
- Hinged lid attaches to cabinet door with over the door hooks or screws
- Bag is made from 65% post-consumer resin
- Bag is machine washable
- Comfortable handle for transport
- 5 gallon bag holds 36 uncrushed cans and is large enough to fit 1 gallon milk jugs
- Great for single stream recyclers
- Great for apartment living
We have been using it to collect the cardboard rolls from toilet paper and paper towels. We have also been collecting plastic bottles as well as milk jugs! This has been fantastic for keeping my crafty kids busy, not draining my pockets and teaching the girls more about recycling!
We have ours hooked inside the cabinet door that is under our sink. It has not taken up any room at all and now our floor is not so trashy looking anymore!
This is a product that I would recommend useful for anyone that I know! It truly makes organizing your recyclables much easier!
