For those out there who obsess about keeping the recycling separate from the normal trash, your chariot has arrived.

The All-In-One recycling center has an 8-gallon bin for cans and bottles and a 5-gallon bin for newspaper and junkmail. There's a foot-activated can crusher that automatically drops the compressed rubbish into the bin, and a carbon filter in the lid to contain odors. In addition, the front of the unit has an LCD screen which reminds you what day the recycling comes.


But the price? An overblown $250 dollars. My inefficient and inadequate recycling habits will have to do for now. [Brookstone and Williams-Sonoma via Red Ferret via BB Gadgets]
