Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Check it Out!  I'm in the Rubbermaid Buzz Program this year and I am so excited!  I love Rubbermaid products and have some that I have had for too many years to count.  Did you know that Rubbermaid also makes storage solutions?  Yep and what is super cool is that they have storage solutions for your recycling needs too!
I recently received the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler to try out and I am super excited to share it with you. 
So here is what it looks like in my under the sink cabinet before...

And this is how we stored our cans to recycle...
It's not a pretty method but it works until it gets full and then we take it to an outside bin. 
So you can see why I was excited to get started with my Hidden Recycler!
And of course what a better place to put it than in that under the sink cabinet that was a hot mess. 
The Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler comes with clips that can easily be attached to a cabinet door or it can be screwed right on for a more permanent solution.
Since I wanted to get it right up and not wait for the drill to charge I whipped on the clips...
And then attached the lid portion to the clips...
Then I just attached the 5 gallon bag to the lid portion easily by placing it in the groove...

And Taddda!!!  My Hidden Recycler is ready to go!

Not bad looking and pretty simple to install, the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler's 5 gallon bag holds up to 36 12-ounce cans and you can even fit a milk jug in it and is leak-proof.  It's machine washable which I totally love.  It's soft sided so it's super flexible and it's made of recyclable material so it is recyclable itself!  How cool is that? 
Hidden Recycler is easy to empty
Oh and you did notice the handle, right?  Portable, flexible and recyclable, now that is a multi-functional product! 

Even though it is leak proof, I just don't want to muck it up yet, so I put in a trash bag before putting in any cans and it got me to thinking that this would make a great trashcan under the sink also.  It is super versatile as you could put the Hidden Recycler in the laundry room or even in the bathroom for dirty clothes or even in the kids closet- my kids tend to throw their dirties there, so this would be perfect on the back of the closet door! 
The Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler sell for $15.99 at and is also available at Meijer stores.  If your in need of some organization and storage tips, be sure and check out Rubbermaid's Adventures in Organization.

*I received this product compliments of Rubbermaid for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.


  1. I have two containers next to my garbage can, one for cans/bottles and one for paper. Then when it gets full enough I bring them outside to the blue box.

  2. well we recycle everything but our system is a mess, mostly just bags and boxes get filled and then to the bins, it has bugged me for awhile, this would sure be great

  3. we shop at sam's club and we get a box to bring out stuff home in, i reuse those boxes to put our recycles in in the kitchen. i then recycle all of it together once a week on thursdays thanks clallen at ntin dot net, i also have a trash can that we use a bag in and we fill it with alum. cans

  4. I take everything out to the big blue recycle trash can.

  5. I have a garbage can for all the cans/plastic bottles and then my closet just has a stack of papers which I have to put in paper bags when I am done.

  6. This is an awesome recycling solution we too used the grocery bags to put our cans in and I still keep extra grocery bags in a grocery bag...LOL. This would work so much better.
