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.


My family uses wooden I-shaped racks along the ceiling of our garage to hang up the old orange recycling bins and save space!  I think this is a great practical reuse of the bins.

I like this idea, but the only problem is that most of us have only one bin. How did you accumulate three?
