I am in love with this recycler. It has made my life 10x easier. I went through SO much trouble recycling before I got this. I save cans and take them to the recycling center up the road. I used to save them in grocery store plastic bags. I would save up until I got quite a few, and then take them out, crush them, and then put them all in a garbage bag.
The grocery bags would get really sticky, and I hated it. I would basically have to PRY them off the bag. Then crush them and transfer them to the larger bag. My hands were sticky and my back ached from crushing so many cans at once.
Now I can do the crushing one at a time and place them inside the bottom part of the 2-n-1 recycler. It is so much easier, no stickiness, and no hurting back. It makes recycling easy. I seriously think that if everyone in the U.S. had one, they would recycle more. They wouldn’t have to think twice about throwing cans, paper, and plastics in the trash.
The top and bottom are sorters, so you can use the bottom for something different than the top. I use the bottom for cans, and the top for plastic. We go through a lot of milk and juice, so plastic was the best thing for the top of mine.
It is super easy to clean. The top lifts out, and I just put it in my sink, fill it a quarter full with warm water, drop in a few drops of dish liquid, wash, rinse, and put it back. The bottom also comes all the way out, but it doesn’t need to be cleaned very much because it clips the trash bag right in.
So you just pull the green levers up and pull the bag out, and replace it! Easy as pie, and very easy to keep clean also. The extra coke juice doesn’t seep out into the bottom of the recycler.
I love that Rubbermaid is designing so many products to not only help the environment but help their customers as well. I love companies that do this. I have been using Rubbermaid for a VERY long time.
I love this!! and so does everyone who walks in my house and sees it. My mom wants one. She said it would make saving her cans so much easier. She keep them in a bag on her counter and puts them in a large outside trash bin when the grocery sack is full. Doing this makes her hands sticky though, and requires extra time that the recycler doesn’t!
