We need to get our home recycling system under control.

One more thing to take up precious floor space. Nonetheless, this Ecopod caught our attention with its seamless design and these attributes:

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.
