Discussion: Best Practical Reuse


The top ten practical reuses of the orange bin as selected by the judges are shown below.  Included in the 102 entries in the “practical category,” there were multiple ideas that were similar, (ie: using the orange bin to take returnable cans and bottles back to the store.)   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.


Our orange bin isn't at all worried about the big blue replacing her... She knows her value as part of the family...and will transition employment to recycling of bottles and cans and enjoy trips to redemption! See photo!

I have to cast a vote for this one, because it is what I have been doing with my bin since it retired from its previous career. If the judges received many other entries suggesting this idea, that may indicate that it is one of the most practical uses and one that continues the bins role as an aid to recycling.

The orange bin is a convenient size to park in our garage outside our kitchen door.
