I thought what better prize to Giveaway for Earth Day than a Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler?! Let’s really Go Green & quit throwing out those recyclables and filling up landfills, killing our Earth because we have no place to store them, right? Living in Michigan we have one of the highest refunds on bottles and cans in the country $.10C! 10 bottles or cans will get you a $1.00 back, right from our local stores. No need to go to a Recycling Center. Just pack up your bottles/cans take them to any local store or gas station and get your $ However, this can be good and bad. Bad because of the storage issue. We tend to keep the bottles until we have a sufficient amount to turn in. This can cause gnats, ants and just plain unwanted clutter.
Luckily, Rubbermaid in their infinite wisdom have come up with the perfect 2-in-1 Recycler. The 2-in-1 Recycler makes recycling easy.

- Contain trash and recyclables all in one location or sort your recyclables

- Removable lid
- Fold-away handles

My family has really appreciated all of the options the Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler has afforded us. No longer are their bags of bottles stored haphazardly in the kitchen. Once the bin is full we take the entire bin to the store. Easy peasy. It also adds a clean aesthetic look and feel to how the trash is stored. Because the storage capacity for trash is smaller than our old garbage can, trash is emptied more often. We love everything about the Rubbermaid 2 in-1 Recycler and I’m sure you will to.
