Having a party takes a lot of work and planning, but it is certainly worth the effort to see lots of smiling faces, hear giggling and laughter, and catch up with old and new friends. Clean up, however, is another story entirely. Sometimes, the time that I spend cleaning up after a party is longer than the time that I needed to spend to prepare for it.
Here a Cup, There a Cup, Everywhere a Cup- Enough, Enough!
After hosting a large event, I have already gotten frustrated when I discovered half-empty cups, paper plates, and napkins everywhere from the fireplace mantel to the bookshelves. Perhaps it isn’t that my guests are slobs or they figured that I could just clean the mess up at my leisure. Perhaps the problem is simply that my guests could not find the trash can.
Plus, maybe my guests haven’t always been sure that I recycle. Maybe that is why they have been more likely to leave their empty beverage cans out in the open on a table or window ledge rather than placing them in the trash can where they will end up in a landfill somewhere. Of course, they should have been able to discover my recycling container since I keep it right next to the trash can. Ah well, it is nicer to give my guests the benefit of a doubt.
Now, however, I won’t have to do that anymore because I have discovered the Flings! Let me tell you, I really wish that these clever stand-alone trash bags had been around when I was throwing four kids birthday parties a year- twice that if you count family parties for birthdays.
What Are the Flings® Pop-Up Trash and Recycle Containers?
The Flings offer an easy solution to trash and recycling concerns at any party. As long as you purchase enough of these free-standing trash and recycling receptacles, you won’t have to worry about clean up at all. Just set them up and forget about them until it is time to clean up from your party.
They offer a nice option to setting up trash cans all over your home, backyard, or rental hall or taping trash bags to the end of the table. Who has that many spare trashcans anyway? The Flings are big enough to hold 13 gallons of waste or recyclables; and they are sturdy and leak-proof.
With Flings, you don’t have to keep emptying your trashcan and replacing the trash bag. Just set enough of these attractive alternatives around the areas where you think you are going to need them and you are done! Once the Fling is filled, simply pull up the top of the bag and close it securely using the drawstring. Toss it in your primary trash receptacle and that’s it. No borrowed trashcans to return. No back and forth scurrying. It is simple, easy, and affordable!
What Do the Flings® Pop-Up Trash and Recycle Containers Look Like?
Flings are currently offered in five different patterns. The recycling design is easily recognizable with the green and white display featuring the recycling logo. Most people recognize this, so they have no problem knowing to place their recyclables in it. That is one of the reasons why this particular style of Fling makes it so terrific to use for tailgate parties and BBQs.
Pair the recycling design up with the picnic/BBQ design and you even have an extra touch of ambience for your party. The picnic/BBQ design is adorable. It features burgers and franks along with bright yellow swirls and suns.
The holiday design offers an attractive red and white display of bows. Two all-occasion designs are available with either cake and stars or balloons and stars. These are great for all types of parties including birthday parties, showers, retirement parties, and holiday gatherings.
Not only do you get easy clean up for each event, but you never have to worry about trash spilling over or out of trash bags that have been secured to the end of a table or on a doorknob.

Disclaimer: I received one recycling Fling and two all-occasion Flings to review. I can’t see how you could possibly disagree, but you do have that right. These trash bags are terrific! It is about time someone created stand-alone trash bags that are attractive and functional.
