Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway!

Winner: Rita Spratlen!  Congratulations!

Around our house, we go through tons of cartons and cans.  MillerBug drinks almost a half gallon of milk every two days and those pesky cartons add up quicly!  Add to that the hubs obsession with Mountain Dew and there are days when I feel like the containers are taking over my kitchen!  We do have a recycling bin outside but it’s not always convenient to stop what I’m doing, grab up the baby and head outside to put things into the recycling bin.  And now I don’t have to!  Because with Rubbermaid’s new Hidden Recycler, I can quickly and easily get recyclables off the counter, out of sight and take them all out at once in an easy to carry bag!  Wow!

So, how does this work?  Well, I was pretty curious about that myself in the beginning.  So here’s the breakdown.  You put together the hidden recycler and mount it on hooks or screws on the inside of your cabinet.  Choose the place that is most convenient for you.  For us, it’s under the cabinets right next to the fridge.

The hidden recycler fits perfectly into our cabinet so that it can open and close easily.  It boasts the following features:


– 5 Gallon Bag that hols up to 36 12 ounce cans and can fit a milk jug

– Leak proof liner that is machine washable

– Soft sided bag which allows flexibility to fit inside cabinets

– Bag and packaging is made from recyclable material


So, all we have to do now is open the cabinet, raise the lid and toss our recyclables in!

No more opening the door and heading outside to the recycling bin every time we have something that needs to go into it.  Then, when it’s full, we simply detach the bag from the hanger and carry it outside to be emptied into the big bin!

It’s quick, easy, mess free and super convenient!  We love the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycle bin and I’m betting your family will too!  And that’s why one of my lucky readers is going to have the chance to win one of their very own!

Entry is super easy thanks to Rafflecopter.  Just use the form below!

    would love this. We do not have garbage pickup where we live so we recyle all of our items and have to take them to the recycling centers on our own, so this would make it so much easier.

  3. I’ve been looking for something like this. Very cool

  10. Maegan Morin says:

    because we always rinse our bottles before they go in the bag in the porch and this would be great to carry them and store them until then

  11. Vesper

    It would be great to win so that once we have any empty bottles we can just put them in this bag and then carry them to our shed to store

  12. Jerri Davis

  19. gibberish (Julie G.) says:

    Our recycling program has very large wheelie bins for each household. They are the size of about two garbage cans stacked one atop the other. Our collection day is once every two weeks. That being said, our bin lives in the garage & I make multiple trips each day out to the garage with my recycling to add to the wheelie bin. If I had this Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler, I could keep it in the house & reduce the number of trips I make to the big bin!

  20. Karla Sceviour

    I do not have a receptacle in my home for recycles. Now they gather on the counter until someone (me) brings them outside to the can. This would make my counter usable again

  75. I’d like to have this at my home because my recycles are so unsightly.

  76. Amanda Alvarado says:

    We don’t have a lot of room in our kitchen and definitely not enough to keep bins for recycling so we don’t recycle as much as we should. This would help us be able to recycle a lot more than what we are!

  77. Amanda Alvarado says:
  78. I have a big ugly bin in my kitchen that currently serves as my recycle bin…did I mention it was ugly? And it avalanches easily? Nuff said.

  80. Jude Skocki Kelly
  81. I would like to win because we have to separate everything for recycling/composting now.

  82. to help the recycle area stay cleaner

  83. Because I just updated the kitchen and my current system (along with my composting) is the pits (I couldn’t resist). Seriously, I NEED it!

  84. it would be helpful for being so much cleaner

  85. Like you we go through a lot of cans/milk jugs. And paper – oh the paper! it flocks to our door and I recycle everything we possibly can. This would be ideal to help keep it tidy in the kitchen and easy to bring out to our bigger recycling bins in the garage when it fills up.

  86. I have been looking for something like this. We currently have one of those plastic totes in the garage that we throw our recyclables in but this is so much nicer looking.

  88. I would love to have this to put my recyclables in.

  89. I currently use a large plastic bag in the back room….this would be SO MUCH BETTER!!!

  90. I really need this because right now the recyclables sit on the counter until someone (almost always me!) takes them to the garage!

  91. Shara F. says:

    Sinc we moved I have seriously dropped the ball on recycling. I love the idea of this as it helps with a major issue we had in the lack of convenience.

  92. Right now, we throw our recyclables by the front door. Not really the best way to do it. It’s very disorganized. This would help.

  93. This is a really cool idea! Right now we just have a cardboard box by the back door that we use for recycling.

    This would be great to take the place of the ugly old basket I have been using. What a great product.
