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.

Topic: Rolling Tote

Teach your recycling container some new, useful skills! Begin with training wheels! (available at Wal-Mart). Then add some rope and a short tube and you'll have a very practical rolling tote for all your home work. Wheels bolt on easily, and adjust. Knot the rope to any comfortable length.
