Our family recycles a lot. Between my husband’s catering business and our twins we have a lot of cans, bottles and cardboard. Right now we have been hanging a plastic bag on the back of a coat hook, filling it up and then taking it outside to our recycling bin. Then I got asked to try this new Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler and I was pretty excited.

We’ve been using our Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler for a few weeks now and found it was easy to install, easy to keep clean and really handy for all of the recyclables we collect. It’s a great height for our boys to drop things in it which helps in our lessons about what is garbage and what is recycling.
Here’s the one we have in our kitchen:
And, one lucky reader of Family Food and Travel will win their own Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler.

ashley picco says
Right now we have a small cardboard box next to our microwave. Everything gets put in there, and then our 5 yr old takes it to the garage once fill to sort into the correct bins. It doesn’t hold all that much though, and winning this giveaway would be awesome!
