Discussion: Best Creative Reuse


The top ten creative reuses of the orange bin as selected by the judges are shown below.  Many of the 89 entries in the “creative category,” were extremely imaginative!  The judges had the difficult task of diligently reviewing each entry to select these finalists.

Remember, these are our friends and neighbors of all ages who submitted these ideas. We welcome constructive, respectful and positive comments if you wish to post.


My idea for creating a new use out of the recycling bin was to turn it into a floating cooler for your pool. The materials used were a pool noodle and a foam board cut to the size of the bin. I added ice and drinks and you have yourself a floating cooler.
