Celebration Giveaway - Flings Bins


We recently had my daughter's birthday party at a nearby park. Although there were waste bins, they were not close to where we were. As a solution, I used a Flings Celebration bin to throw the items into that needed discarded. I went from table to table with the Flings bin and easily scooped the trash into it, then took the whole thing to the park's waste bin. Clean up took a lot less time.



Flings are decorative containers that are the size of a 13 gallon trash can. They are portable and convenient, especially when there are no trash cans nearby. Set-up is simple and takes no time at all. All you have to do is pop it up and make sure the side panels are set straight in place. As for after it is full, all you have to do is lift up the top flap and tie it together like a regular trash bag.


I've found that Flings don't have to be used just for trash. With the Recycle Bin I received, I have used it as a carrier to put my light items in when I am camping on the weekend. It is portable and I'm able to put a lot of things in it. It also fits nicely in a small corner of my camper. It is much sturdier on the bottom so I make sure to carry it from there. When being carried from the top, it can rip.

Although I haven't used them for this reason, I think Flings would be great to sort items in that are to be recycled. Every week it seems that the recycle bin that I have from the city fills up way too quickly. Flings bins could be set inside and the recyclables can be set in them so they can be picked up at curbside when the time comes.

Win It!
One person will win a Flings Celebration Bin and a Flings Recycle Bin.

The closest store to me would be like 500 miles away. But if you order online there is no shipping. How cool is that?
So anyway the closest store for me would be:
The Paper Depot
574-294-2507
Elkhart, IN

I like the Holiday fling bin. What a decorative way to recycle at Christmas! And it's light enough to put wherever you want around the Christmas tree!

coriwestphal said...

I can't get these anywhere near me. The closest is Brookside Party Warehouse in Kansas City, MO, about 511 miles away! Yikes! But I can still get them on Amazon!
