Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

I just moved into a house a few months ago with the family. We have local trash and recycle pick up each week. We are just starting out with recycling. We didn't have a recycle trash can and ended up with piles on the counter waiting to go out to the recycle bin. Thankfully we received a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler to review.

I'm thrilled that with this Recycler my recyclables are off my counter tops and hidden out of sight. My daughter loves that it has a handle for transporting. It is easy enough for my 4 year old daughter to carry outside and dump into the big recycle trash bin.

The recycler attached easily to cabinet using the attached hooks. You can see the hooks from the front. If you don't want this to show. You can go buy screws to fit your door and then just attach with the screws.

The Recycler is a 5 gallon soft-sided bag. This bag easily fits under the inside of any cabinet. It is big enough to hold a milk jug and can hold 36 12 oz soda cans. I love that it can hold a milk jug as this seems to be an item we are constantly recycling.
I have yet to need it but it is nice to know that the bag has a leak- proof liner. It can be wiped clean after any unexpected spills or even washed in the washing machine. This is an awesome feature. I love that I can just wash it if it does get spilled on.
Finally the bag and packaging is made from recyclable material, and you can recycle the product when you are done with it. 

Here is a brief recap of some of the features I love:
1. Hides recyclables out of sight
2. Easy handle that allows me to have my daughter help. She loves being responsible for taking this out. *I'm loving that she wants to help*
3. Size- I really love that this bag will hold milk jugs.
4. Washable- love that if need be, I can throw in the washer and get it clean.

Improvements?
I'd love to try it out with screws attached to the cabinet door to prevent the hooks showing on the cabinet. While these aren't provided, I could easily buy them at the store and they did include directions for using them. I can't think of anything else that I'd change with the bag. It works great!

We have a big green recycle tub in our kitchen... would love something smaller, hidden, and easier to carry out to the recycling bin outside.

Right now we've got two blue bins sitting in our kitchen to hold recycling.
