Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review + Giveaway

A really long time ago (think months), the nice folks over at Rubbermaid sent me a Hidden Recycler to test out and tell you about.  I am a horrible blogger and totally missed the due date.  Luckily those nice folks at Rubbermaid are understanding.  So today is the day!  Better late than never, right?

434

Let me tell you how recycling works at our house.  We throw everything onto the kitchen table until I decide that I can’t take it anymore and haul the stuff out to the garage.

462

I love when I get comments about how we have everything so together.  If by “having it together” you mean crumbs, dead flowers and trash on the table (and missing blogging deadlines), then yes, we have it all together.

Nate thinks we have a recycling fairy and there is no need for recycling assistance.  If only this recycling fairy thing was true…

Ike and I decided to test out the Hidden Recycler. We thought underneath the kitchen sink would be the perfect spot.

452

The Hidden Recycler can be installed with screws or hung on the door.  It is a 5 gallon bag with a leak-proof liner. The bag is also made from recyclable material, and the product is recyclable.

One of the best features of the product is the detachable bag that allows you to easily take it your recycling bin…in your pajamas.

459

Nate still thinks we have a recycling fairy.  The recycling fairy thinks the Hidden Recycler is a handy product to have in our kitchen.  Now I only have to work on the crumbs, dead flowers, and blog deadlines!

Would you like to win a Hidden Recycler of your very own? 

  • PRIZE: One Hidden Recycler
  • TO ENTER: Leave a comment telling me if you believe in the recycling fairy or if you are the recycling fairy!
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Sunday, May27th 11:59 CST

Disclaimer: I received my Hidden Recycler for free.  I was not compensated to review this product or for this giveaway.  All opinions are 100% my own.  Yo.

  2. Oh my gosh...I laughed so hard when I read this! Piles of garbage on my kitchen counters (and I thought I was the only one) until I finally break and can't even open the door to my garage because I have so much in my arms. My husband can't seem to find the recycling bin (though he's incredibly helpful in every other way, so I can't gripe). I am the recycling fairy.

  3. Not only am I the recycling fairy, but I'm also the invisible chair pusher, the mail magician, and am able to give my house a makeover every Monday, after the tornados that hit on the weekends!

  6. This is too cool - I have finally become a recycling fairy. We just moved last week into a house, our apartment didn't recycle. This would be perfect to get organized within our moving mess!

  10. I NEED this. We use this super ugly bin for our recycling. Wait. WE don't use it, I do all the work. He just empties out most of the containers!

    ReplyDelete
  11. hahahaha my husband doesn't think we have a recycling fairy, he just doesn't think we recycle that much. me - we need a bigger bin for the recycling, husband - why, it's not like it ever gets piled up too much, me - and why do you think that is?, husband - because we don't recycle that much ... on second thought, my husband does think we have a recycling fairy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ha - as THE recycling fairy in my house I would love one of these. I'd put it right under the countertop where all the empty cans & bottles go to hang out while waiting for me to take them on that magic ride to the garage!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love that and need one. It's so much better than having the extra garbage can in my kitchen that we throw all the recycling in. I make Aaron take everything out to the garage, but I am the one who puts most everything in the bin. He leaves stuff on the counters.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I believe in the recycling fairy! I just toss stuff on the kitchen or bathroom counter and it disappears!

  25. I am the recycling fairy among many other fairy names like clean undies fairy. My husband is amazed at that one. Get left on the bathroom floor and *poof* clean and in the drawer lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is awesome! I am one lucky lady as my Hubby has been working from home more so he has taken the fairy role. Oh how he would love to read that sentence **shame**

    ReplyDelete
  27. I NEED this!! Our recycling fairy is Shalai. She pulls milk jugs out of the recycling and destroys them. Since we're trying to keep her insides in good shape after her surgery fiasco, this is not an advisable activity.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I believe in the recycling fairy! We have a bin but my hubs takes it out every night :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is awesome! I share responsibilities with the recycling fairy :)

  43. Awesome! Mike and I are both the recycling fairies and recyclers. We seem to switch off on this one. But I would love this, it'd get all those craft beer bottles off my counter!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Depending on the day I'm either the fairy or just believing in one. I'd love this...it'd get the craft beer bottles off my counter!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Of course I believe!
    Every time I recycle an empty SunDrop bottle, an angel gets their wings:)

    ReplyDelete
  46. UGH! I AM the recycler fairy. I flit about the house picking up all the cans and papers and they magically make their way to the garage.

    I believe usually the recycler fairy is the same as the toilet paper fairy.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am the Recycle Fairy! This would be super awesome in my kitchen for a few reasons: 1) I dont have much counter space for my compost/recycle stuff anyways and this is perfect for under the sink 2) I had a waster bucket in the kitchen that sat on the floor, but my baby Dino has now GOTTEN into it and created a mess.
    This would be a huge problem solver!

    ReplyDelete

  49. Love! We take turns being the recycling fairy in our house. It was my turn to believe this week! However, our recycling lives on the floor of the dining room in an old rum box from BevMo. I would love to toss that thing into the recycling bin and have our recycling under the sink like civilized folks!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I believe in the recycling fairy too! His name starts with an A!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I believe in the recycling fairy and yesterday my beliefs paid off!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Fairy duties pretty much fall on me..so anything that makes my wings shine a bit brighter and flutter a bit faster is a blessing!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I definitely believe in the recycle fairy; it has been disappearing faster and faster from our counter lately. Love this idea!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm the recycling fairy, along with the laundry fairy, dishes fairy, and the fairy for everything else that is too gross for anyone else to touch. Shhh...don't tell anyone! I let our recycling pile up on the counter until it becomes a mini-mountain and I can't stand it anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Of course I believe in the recycling fairy! And that Rubbermaid product would make a very nice purse for her!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I could definitely use one of those for my son ;). He is the recycling fairy :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am the house-to-garage recycling fairy... my husband is the garage-to-curb recycling fairy! This would be a totally awesome under the sink secret!

    ReplyDelete
  58. i wish I was the recycling fairy! Alas, I just believe in her, and yes, she is a woman. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I happen to be the recycling fairy at my house! I do exactly what you do - and it drives me crazy. I'd love to have this; it would make my life easier and the house look so much better!)

    ReplyDelete
  60. My husband and I have arguments over who is the recycling fairy. I think if we tracked how many trips we both make to drop the stuff in the garage, we'd be about even. Thanks for the chance to win!

  61. I believe in the recycling fairy. My husband is very good at it. I just help enable him by trying to organize....I'm not sure if the fairy appreciates this effort, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am definitely the recycling fairy! My hubs just leaves boxes and crap everywhere! I would never do that *wink

    ReplyDelete
  63. I AM the recycling fairy at my house! Or at least I put all the materials in a pile and my hubby always takes it out. So maybe we both are?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Recycling Fairy.... but not very organized... leave things to recycle on never used formal dining table and take it out every day or so.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I am the recycling fairy. But it's always nice to pretend! :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Love your old recycling method...sounds like mine but mine is WAY worse. Our recycling can is right outside the garage door (which is off the kitchen). I'm known for setting my stuff on the floor next to that door. Lazy much?! I'd love to put this under my sink!

    ReplyDelete
  67. My husband and I share fairy duties. This looks great! Our method is to throw all the cardboard from boxes on the floor by the trash can in the kitchen and after kicking it a few dozen times, take it out to the recycling bin. At least yours is up and not in the walking path.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I totally believe in the recycling fairy. Sometimes I wear the wings and sometimes it's the hubster. Either way, we recycle a lot!! In fact, we recycle so much that we were able to cancel our trash service and we now take one or two bags of actual waste to the dump every two weeks! Although our last name in Black, we think GREEN :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Best promotional blog post ever. Seriously. I sat here and I read it all. Yup. Was hoping to get a glimpse of that recycling fairy. We must have different ones, though.

    My recycling fairy wears jeans. And when there is no recycling to recycle, he does double duty as the laundry fairy. I wonder how long I would need to go without vacuuming before he was forced into duty as the vacuuming fairy?

    :)

  70. I am the recycling fairy. I haven't pulled the trigger on purchasing a receptacle yet, so maybe I'll win this one!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Sadly I have awaited the recycling for months and.....never showed up!! The Nerve right!! So I do it every other day because I don't have a handy dandy hidden recycler bag!!! Happy Recycling everyone!!

  72. We have a nice pile of recyclables on the kitchen floor... drives me CRAZY. I would love one of these bins!

    ReplyDelete
  73. We have so much recycle stuff it isn't even funny. And I'm the recycle fairy and sometimes my recycle fairy wings are broken because I, at times, find it easier to stuff everything into a black plastic bag and go burn it. And that is why I blow at cutting down air pollution.

    So I think a recycle bin, that I don't have to see would be handy dandy!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I believe in the recycling fairy since I am the recycling fairy! Would love this since we have a giant recycling bin that takes up room, and my 10 month old is ready to empty any day now with his new independence! Need this!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I am the slacker recycling fairy. I store everything in old trader joe's bags next to the door until there's enough to fill the bin, then I take it out. This is a much neater option.

    ReplyDelete
  76. We soo need a place for recycling, so far the recycling fairy has not shown up!!

  77. I wish I had someone other than myself to call the recycling fairy but It is me in my household. I think that would be a great product to try.

    ReplyDelete
  78. The "Recycling Fairy" made me smile! I wish we had one, but like you, I get that job. And since the recycling bin that we roll out to the street every other week is down in our garage, I would LOVE this! It makes recycling quick & easy. Perfect!
    P.S love your blog :)

  79. We have two recycling fairies in our house, and 3 kids who believe in them. Just leave a pile on the kitchen island and while they sleep it is magically transported down the stairs to the garage.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Haha, no! I tend to put it in the box and the fiance takes it to the curb, so I guess it's a group effort!
