Rubbermaid 2 in 1 Recycler Review and Giveaway

Like most parents I try to set a good example for my kids, but sometimes when you're a busy mom of three setting a good example can be hard, especially when it requires taking extra steps. We live with my future in laws and through out the day we collect a lot of trash. Taking the recyclables out was just one extra thing to add to my already busy day, and I found it hard to convince anyone else that they should be taking them out to their own bin. I often found that our plastic bottles and egg cartons were ending up in the regular trash. The Rubbermaid 2 in 1 Recycler solves all our problems!

"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."

  • Contain trash and recyclables all in one location or sort your recyclables
  • Sleek design blends into kitchen d├ęcor
  • 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
We're loving the convenience and ease of having everything combined and in once place! Willow is so excited to take the recycling bin out to dump in the big bin (our city collects everything in once large container once a week). She says that it's her "job". The 2-in-1 Recycler is making our lives easy, and it can make your life easier too!

  1. We love to recycle, but living in an apartment having all those separate containers is not easy, so being able to have a designated place for at least 2 recyclables would be great!

  2. Here is a Joke I hope you finding it funny :)

    A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel plans. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day.
    The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.
    Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

    To: My loving wife

    Subject: I've arrived

    I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

    P.S. sure is freaking hot down here!!!!

  3. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm excited that my city just decided to add tetra packs and milk cartons to recycle!

    While on a car trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, the elderly woman left her glasses on the table, but she didn't miss them until they were back on the highway. By then, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around.

    The elderly man fussed and complained all the way back to the restaurant. He called his wife every name he could think of, making her feel guilty for causing them so much trouble.

    When they finally arrived at the restaurant, and the woman got out of the car to retrieve her glasses, the man yelled to her, "And while you're in there, you might as well get my hat, too..."
