Participating in America Recycles Day is the perfect fit for our initiative, “Flings Helps America Green-Up One Town at a Time” which reaches out to small towns across America to help them with their recycling efforts.”With a 13-gallon capacity, Flings Pop-Up Recycling Bins feature the universal recycling logo and provide easy storage as they fold flat and pop open in a snap. Filling one Flings Recycling bin keeps 60 cans or bottles from ending up in a landfill saving enough energy to power a television for 180 hours.

“I absolutely LOVE your pop-up recycling containers! I bought two of them weeks ago and love them! I live in a small apartment on the second floor and your product makes it easy. It’s great to be able to have a decent sized recycle bin, but narrow enough for a small apartment kitchen.”
“I had a family reunion over the 4th of July weekend, with 52 people attending. My flings were wonderful for keeping everything under control. Would highly recommend them.”
“We are now keeping a Flings Bin in our kitchen as a visual reminder of how important it is to recycle. I love that even the kids are adding their cans to it instead of leaving them sit on the counter!”
“I am so excited to report that the TX 4000 for Cancer kickoff event, ATLAS, was a huge success! We had a crew of 5 recycling volunteers who spearheaded our recycling effort with Flings in hand. The result was a small U-Haul trailer with a large event’s worth of recyclable materials and an almost empty large trash dumpster (I know this firsthand because I climbed the ladder to throw away the last couple items of the day after we were done cleaning up and it was almost empty!). Flings made recycling easy and very visible to our approximately 1000 guests!”
“I can see us pulling [Flings] into the living room to throw wrapping paper in at our next birthday party – or on Christmas morning. Or it would be very easy to flatten it and take it with us if we do a party away from home.”
“How many times have you had a party or cook out and wished you had something other than a large black trash bag or several shopping bags to place trash in? Well, here is your solution… Flings!”
