We need to get our home recycling system under control. Thinking about adding built-in units for more storage and recycling organization, we're also considering that maybe a home recycling system is our best bet. The hold-up? One more thing to take up precious floor space. Nonetheless, this Ecopod caught our attention with its seamless design and these attributes: posted originally from: AT:Chicago How it Works • insert aluminum cans and plastic bottles into the top, and step on the pedal to hear the sweet sound of compaction via the patented ecostep system. • flattened containers automatically fall into a portable pod • pod can hold between 50-60 crushed containers and slides out for easy transfer to a curbside recycling bin. • there's also separate area that can hold glass bottles, newspapers, plastic bags and other materials. • built of brushed stainless steel and plastic, this BMW-designed product actually looks great in your kitchen. Sounds pretty great. What do you use at home for organizing recycling?? The Ecopod is available from People Powered Machines for $324.
