More Convenient, Reliable Recycling Bin Invented by InventHelp® Client (AVZ-949)

Share Article

InventHelp®, America’s Leading Inventor Service Company, attempts to submit an invention, Recycle With Something Different, to companies for review.

An inventor from Freeville, N.Y., knows the hassles associated with recycling on a regular basis, so he decided that there needed to be an improvement in the design of the recycling bin itself. "26 years ago, around when recycling first started, approximately 10 percent of the public recycled," he said. "Our local county's solid-waste and disposal service told the public what should be recycled and how the task should be done. If you didn't do what was asked of you, the driver of the recycling truck would place a yellow frowny-face sticker on your recycling bin and leave the bin's contents there. Also, in the year 2009, we could be fined if we didn't have lids for our bins. It is safe to say that this invention should have been invented 26 years ago."

To solve this problem, he designed the RECYCLE WITH SOMETHING DIFFERENT, an improved recycling bin that makes recycling more convenient and secure via a reliable lid. It prevents items such as newspapers from blowing away in the wind, and avoids fines due to non-compliance with recycling ordinances. Overall, it saves time, effort and money. Compact, durable and easy to use, it serves as an alternative to using plastic bags/plywood.

The original design was submitted to the Telemarketing office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
