Toss your trash with Flings

These portable bins give you easy access to trash cans and recycling bins no matter where you are.

Oh, I love trash! (And recycling.) Flings

So you've got the gang over for a backyard barbecue (hey, I live in Houston, and we don't do winter here), and the trash and recycling is piling up all over the deck. Grab a couple of Flings recycling and trash containers, and you're good to go.

Flings are portable, compact bins--when closed, they're about half the size of a pizza box--that snap open to hold 13 gallons of trash or recycling. You can avoid the classy trash-bag-hanging-from-a-nail look, and you can easily pop open two separate containers to keep your recyclables from being covered in ketchup. Face it, most of us are lazy, and if we have to head back in the house to recycle the soda cans, we're often just as likely to toss 'em in the trash.

Set up a couple of Flings at strategic points around the party, and clean up is much simpler. When the container is full--it can hold up to 60 cans or bottles--the whole thing can be tied up and dropped in the recycling bin. At about $4 each, Flings are an easy addition to your outdoor parties and picnics.
