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 idea was to use the recycling bin as a cooler. We insulated the bin with bubble wrap before filing with ice. Our recycling bin serves as a place to put drinks and food items to keep them cool. With the handles, it can be easily used on the go.
