Recycle Bins are the living recycle bins used for (what else?) recycling! Each bin is named after what they recycle: Paper recycles paper, Plastic recycles plastic, and Metal recycles metal.
Each bin is blue, but they have their differences: Paper has square eyes and a white paper stack symbol, Plastic has round eyes and a white plastic bottle symbol, and Metal has rectangular eyes and a white metal can symbol. A different recycle bin (possibly Plastic) appeared in "Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper Day". It had Metal's eyes and a white recycle symbol.
All 3 are featured in "What Does Blue Want to Make Out of Recycled Things?". After Steve wrote down the 1st clue (a paper towel roll) and thinks that they should find 2 more clues, the recycle bins were heard saying “Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!”. Steve then asked the viewers if they said something before wondering who that's was.
A different recycle bin appeared in "Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper Day".
- Out of all the recycle bins in "What Does Blue Want to Make Out of Recycled Things?", Plastic was the only one that was given 1 recyclable piece of trash: an empty juice bottle. Metal was given an empty soup can and aluminum foil, and Paper was given a milk carton and some paper trash that Mailbox planned to throw away.
- Unless you count the recycle bin from "Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper Day" (which was given an empty milk jug) as Plastic, each recycle bin was given 2 recyclable pieces of trash total.
