Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review & Giveaway

Recycling can be a hassle sometimes. Never knowing where to put the bottles and cans and boxes until you take them out to the curb. For us, we went out and bought a large garbage can just to use for recycling. But for someone like my mom, she has limited space and has a hard time finding a place to keep her recyclables.

Rubbermaid has come up with  a great new product, the Hidden Recycler! The Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler is a 5 gallon bag that can easily be attached to any kitchen cabinet with hooks that go over the door or with small screws. Thus hidden from view.

I received one for review and was quite impressed! The bag is nice and thick and is leak proof and can also be machine washed if needed. Best of all the bag and all materials are made from recyclable materials and can be recycled. The bag is big enough to hold a gallon milk jug!

I tried placing it on my cabinets but the door is a little too thick for the included hooks. I was hesitant about screwing it in my new cabinets, so I asked my mom if she would like to try it.

She has so much stuff inside her cabinets, we tried it on the outside. I thought this way she would see it and actually use it! And it fits! ( I had a picture, but for the life of, can not find it!)


See reviews and more info on thier website, Facebook and Twitter!

I recieved the above product in order to facilitate this review. Opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
