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.


Since I recently spilled gasoline in my trunk, I thought to use my old recycling bin to keep any containers from tipping over. It's great for groceries too!

Great idea! One I will use whenever we need to refill our gas cans, which we will be doing as soon as we take the returnable cans and bottles (in the bin currently) back to the store.
