What Does Blue Want to Make Out of Recycled Things 019

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".  

Non-sentient recycle bins appeared in some episodes (for example, Plastic was seen in "Blue's Surprise at Two O'Clock!", and Metal was seen in "Nurture!" and "Weight and Balance").


  • 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.
