ENGLEWOOD, CO (April 4, 2011) – With Earth Day coming up on April 22 many people are making a resolution to recycle more. But we are a convenience-oriented nation and recycling is not always easy or accessible. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the United States recycles just over 30 percent of its recyclable materials.*
But now there are products that make it easy to capture recyclable materials wherever you go – at parties, picnics, camping, boating and around home. Flings Pop-Up Recycle Bins are decorative tall kitchen size bags that stand up like a bin. Flings Bins arrive flat for easy storage and then snap open when you need them. The portable bins make it easy to recycle anywhere, anytime. Each extra strong, leak-proof bin features an easy to use drawstring for convenient transport. Flings Pop-Up Recycle Bins are 100% biodegradable/degradable and can be emptied and reused.
Flings Pop-Up Recycle Containers make it easier to keep recycling separate and promote recycling of items such as bottles, cans and paper. Each recycle bin saves up to 60 cans or bottles from the landfill and can be reused. That’s enough energy saved to power a TV for over a week.
Flings Pop-Up Recycle Containers are good for outdoor events and as a home recycle bin. For more information on Flings Pop-Up Trash and Recycling Bins, visitwww.FlingsBins.com and Facebook.com/FlingsBins.
Flings Bins are owned by TrashCo, Inc., a consumer product company dedicated to radically simplifying trash and recycling management for consumers. Headquartered in Englewood, CO, TrashCo is leading the way in material and manufacturing processes that minimize the carbon footprint of its products. Its management team is comprised of seasoned entrepreneurs that identify unmet consumer needs and creatively craft improved sustainability into solutions that help change consumer trash and recycling habits.

“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
