Flings Containers are the result of several different groups of people converging and collaborating on a novel idea. This includes an inspired inventor who saw the need for a disposable, but attractive, trash container; several specialists in materials, product development, sustainability and marketing; and a small, aggressive band of entrepreneurs. (As they say, it takes a village…)
Well, we listened to consumers via research. Consumers told us that they had no good solutions for managing trash or recycling at parties, picnics or other events — just dirty old trash cans or a bag hung over a doorknob. And since we really like a good party, too — we figured this was a great place to start! But there are so many uses for Flings.. watch for other Flings containers coming soon.
That’s totally up to you. In some cases, people have told us that they’ve been able to re-use the containers by dumping party trash or recycling into their ordinary containers. It seems to be largely a function of how messy the trash was. Ultimately, though, our goal was to make the bin inexpensive enough that it could be placed in either the waste or recycling stream. Over time, you’ll find what works for you.
Flings Recycling Containers are recyclable in many recycling processing centers (different cities have different capabilities). Flings are designed to make it easier to capture recyclable items such as bottles and cans. They are especially helpful during parties, picnics and events when guests often don’t know what to do with recycling. Flings help keep recycling and trash separate — making recycling a snap!
