Before we moved, we had started recycling but it was challenging because we did not have recycling pick up in our old neighborhood. One of the great perks of our new neighborhood is that they pick up recycling once a week! When we learned more about the service, we found out that we weren’t going to have to sort our recycling either! Everything that can be recycled can be tossed in the same bin. I was thrilled about that news! So, I purchased the recycling bin for the curb and we were ready to go. Within a few weeks we realized that our bin was usually overflowing a day or two before pick up. We needed a new solution for our recyclables! Keeping the bin in the house was turning into a big mess. Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler to the rescue! It saved us from the big green recycling bin from the city that takes up so much floor space!

The Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler is a great solution for families who put all of their recyclables in one bin! If you have to sort, it is designed to help with that as well! It features a top bin and a bottom bin to help you with your sorting if necessary. Each bin features a handle which makes them each to carry out to the curb or dump into the recycling bin you put out. We now use our Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler in the house and then dump it all into the city recycling bin for pick up in Thursday morning!

I love the space-saving aspect of the 2-in-1 Recycler. It takes up 25% less floor space compared to other divided recyclers and holds more than most of them as well. Our original bin is just a big undivided bin so the Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler definitely takes up less floor space! We can actually open the door into the utility room without bumping into the recycle bin now! The bottom bin also holds an 8-gallon trash bag in case you are allowed to put your recyclable items in bags. We’re not allowed to use bags but the 2-in-1 Recycler is extremely easy to wash if things start to get a little sticky or dirty!

The Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler has helped my family recycle with ease!

The Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler is also made from recycled materials and is recyclable! I had never considered that as important but it makes so much sense for a product made to help organize your recyclables! Rubbermaid thinks of everything and has helped me get my recycling more organized!

    My family does use different containers for different types of recyclables (glass, aluminum cans, paper, etc) this would be great, especially since I can’t lift too much at one time due to a back injury. I really want one of these!!

    This would make life so much easier and help get my kids to recycle. Right now we use a trash bag outside the back door and the kids tend to not bother with it no matter how often I tell them. If we had something inside I know they would be more likely to use it!

    Great review – I’m surprised nobody has thought to create a multi-tiered recycling bin before, but thank you Rubbermaid. I really want one now – great review.

    here in Maine we return bottles and cans, so I would love to have this to divide out the bottles from the cans so I can put them in the right bags to take to the redemption center. Another thing I could do of course is similar to what you did, put paper/magazines etc… and the cans/bottles in another section.

    I love this style recycling bin. I have the green bin just like pictured above. This Rubbermaid style is such an improvement. Thanks for the review.
