Since we moved to our new house, we've taken our recycling habits to a new level! We don't have trash pick-up here in the mountains and must haul our trash to the dump. This has definitely given us more insight into how much trash we create each week and inspired us to start recycling more often. At our local dump it is completely free to recycle, but we must pay $1 per bag of trash, so that has been great encouragement, too! We don't have any recycle bins minus the huge storage bin we have been using. It's a complete mess and a sight for sore eyes, for sure. We can't even put it outside because the bears and other animals will get it, so it sits in my kitchen looking horrible! This is why I couldn't wait to try out the Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler.

I sat down this morning to put together our Hidden Recycler from Rubbermaid and realized I had to actually read the directions. Once I did that, assembly was simple! The package before was very compact, so if you ever need to store the item when not in use, it will not take up much room at all. Here's a picture of how small it was:
I like that you have two choices for putting the Hidden Recycler under your counter. You can use screws to permanently install or hooks. I prefer hooks since we rent our home and I can take it with us when we move. By following the instructions, I had the Hidden Recycler bin installed and ready to go in less than 5 minutes! I am usually horrible at assembling things, so when I say this is easy, I mean it!
