Mode™ Products, a developer of houseware products, recently unveiled the Mode™ All-In-One Recycling Center.
Not much larger than a typical trash can, the Center helps streamline your home recycling by sorting, storing, and compacting recyclables all in one system – especially helpful if you’re in a community where single-stream recycling is not available. This way, you can stop using bins or shopping bags to separate recyclables, and maybe keep your countertops less cluttered instead of using them as a gathering place for empty water bottles and soda cans.
The Center uses two bins to store your recyclables, and its patent-pending compaction system crushes aluminum cans, eight ounce to two liter plastic bottles, and quart or half-gallon jugs in one step that doesn’t require an electrical outlet. It can also hold up to three times more than a typical recycling bin.
“We wanted to create a system that solved the myriad of problems with recycling in the home, but was also designed for today’s lifestyle,” said Larry Kahn, president of Verde Home Products, makers of Mode™ Products. “By allowing you to compact, sort and store all your recyclables in one beautiful place, the Mode™ All-In-One Recycling Center helps you to do your part for the environment while also making recycling simple, easy and space-efficient.”
If you have problems remembering when your recycling day is, have no fear. The Mode™ center also has a programmable digital alert, so a pick-up is never missed.
An upgraded version of the Center also inspires recycling habits with a clever Eco-Track™ system that measures and remembers how much has been recycled, and an online journal that logs progress over time on the Mode™ website. In addition, the eight gallon and five gallon bins nest for easy one-trip transporting – and less trips to the garage.
