Full Circle Fresh Air odor-free kitchen compost collector – Excellent! Wish it came in another color, but otherwise most excellent.

If you don’t want your bags to disintegrate. We’ve purchased this back on earth day in 2012 and have used it every day since then. We will go through 2 or 3 bags a week for our coffee ground, tea leaves, egg shells, soiled napkins & paper towels, avocado pit & skin, vegetable trimmings, and garlic & onion skins. Anything larger than these items are placed in our stainless steel bowl and dumped directly into the compost pile – especially banana peels, which the fruit flies love. If you don’t want your bags to disintegrate before you can take it out to the municipal compost bin or your backyard, just make sure nothing is dripping wet in the first place. I usually let the coffee ground sit out for a while after the coffee is made so the paper coffee filter can dry out a little before placing into the bin. The 3 gallon biobags are a perfect fit for this compost bin and the best place to purchase these are through costco – a box of 125 bags cost only $12. The bag holder in our compost bin is 100% metal, no plastic.

Had this for a few months now. Some of the reviews worried me about its durability, but whatever issues this thing has had in the past seem to have been fixed. It’s well-made, easy-to-clean, and doesn’t smell or collect gross compact juice like the air-sealed bins. This is perfect for someone who lives in an apt or something and can’t keep the compost bin outside.

The last compost bin you’ll ever buy. This is the best compost bin ever. The air flow keeps the compost from getting stinky and it doesn’t get moldy and gross like other compost bins. For a couple, one compostable bag usually lasts us about a week and it still is smell free and happy after a week. Typically it never needs to be cleaned as the food touches only the bag and it’s easy to remove and put in another one. When we overfill it and the inside of the lid gets a bit dirty, it’s easy to pull it apart and put it in the dishwasher to get it shiny clean again. We’ve had this for several years and it still looks like new and works great. Well made, well designed and highly recommended.

This container works well for my composting purposes. I like the tab that will release the lid without my having to use two hands. No, it’s not fruit-fly-proof, but i just need to be more diligent in making sure no vegetable matter is in the way of the seal. Also, it’s not totally odor-free if the lid opens. I don’t care how much fresh air it gets around the sides, when the lid is up, odors do escape. But i like it loads better than the stainless steel bucket with lid i used to use.

Features of Full Circle Fresh Air odor-free kitchen compost collector, Green Slate

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Patented design lets air flow through for less odor and fewer flies
  • Opens easily with a push of a button
  • Easy to clean and empty for less mess
  • Ready to use, including five compostable bags
  • Perfect size for home and office (1.5 gallon)
  • Earth friendly materials: Recycled plastic, partially recycled steel

Nice sized composter that works great. Prior to the full circle compost collector, i would use a large plastic container to stuff compost into. It was inconvenient, attracted knats/flies, and left a mess in the container every time i dumped it. After doing this for awhile, i finally caved in and decided to look for a compost collector to make composting “more convenient”. After a lot of research, this composter seemed to be the best buy. Having not used any other composters, i can’t compare this composter to others, but i can share the upsides and downsides in my experience:upsides (pros)- single button push releases lid, which has a spring to throw it open for quick access. – the air flow is nice and combined with the bags, help control odor/knats. – it’s not small like the container i used before, so i can go several days before having to remove the bag. – because it uses bio-degradable bags, the unit stays fairly clean. Downsides (cons)- have to buy bags (but it also makes for easy transport to compost recycling bin).

Wish it came in another color, but otherwise most excellent. . I am new to the composting (thanks to my transient lifestyle, now settled so i finally ams starting a pile) and i was looking for any and all tools to help. I liked the idea of having a kitchen collecting area so trips to the actual compost site could be consolidated. Let’s face it, if it’s easy i am more likely to do it. Keeping a smaller container and making sporadic trips to the compost pile definitely falls under the making it easy theme. I was worried about odor though. One hint of an odor and i knew this would not fly. I am very happy to report after letting things build up for a week, including onions, old banana peels and other odor-inducing items i only smelled something if i actively had the lid opened. It stood an entire week before i emptied it and there was nothing unpleasant going on.

Full circle kitchen compost collector. This is a good product, and i am happy with it. It is a great improvment over what i was using(an ice cream bucket). There has been no discernable odor from it. There has been some mould growing in it, and there have been some fruit flies. I had hoped to get completely away from the flies, but there are still some. I like the push button type lid, it makes it easy to open. I like the wire around the top to help hold the composting bag. It was expensive, for shipping it to canada. It’s not exactly what i wanted, but it’s the best i’ve found so far.

Nine Stars DZT-50-6 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can – good, nice looking trash can. takes 4 D batteries

Good, nice looking trash can. We ordered this on prime day when it went on sale. Its a great looking trash can, and it has a little plastic piece near the top that rests on the inside of the lid to make sure the bag stays but isnt visible. Neat little feature i hadn’t seen before. The sensor is a little flaky sometimes. I’ve noticed sometimes it seems like it just turned off or something, and flipping the on/off switch in the back doesn’t make it come back to life. The only solution i’ve found is to take the lid off, open up the battery casing and make sure they are snug. This takes 4 d batteries to operate, which do not come included. Although the batteries are huge, i noticed they can become a little cockeyed within their grooves, and i think this is the cause of the loss of power sometimes.

It’s supposed to be motion operated, but sometimes when you try to open it by waving your hand in front of it, it doesn’t open. So you have to push the open button. Sometimes the open button doesn’t work either, and yes the power is on. There are also no handles on it, so it’s a problem to move easily if it’s full. Not the best can, but the price is right.

Looks nice, but touchless is overrated. I was a bit disappointed to open the package and see they did not include batteries (4-d batteries needed). I have it all set up now and it is not impressing me as much as i expected. The sensor is sometimes slow, i will wave my hand over two or three times to get it to pop open. The opening for the garbage is actually rather small, i have to turn dust pans sideways to dump the dirt in. The can does feature buttons for the user to open and close it if you need to override the sensor, but there is not a way to turn the sensor off all the time (and just use the buttons). If you turn the can off (there is an on/off button on the back), the up/down buttons don’t work. I was expecting this to be a feature of the can as i was not totally stoked about the sensor and just wanted a nice looking stainless steel can. It is a little difficult to get the bag in the can the right way (in order to hide it from view), but it does hide nicely which makes it look that much better. Fingerprints are not a huge issue, they wipe right off.

  • Everything I Could Dream of in a Trash Can
  • Look no further, this is well designed, and priced good, too
  • One of the best values i’ve ever gotten from Amazon

One of the best values i’ve ever gotten from amazon. Works amazingly well, never a problem. Looks fantastic, i get compliments constantly. And the batteries last forever, i’ve had this for a year and a half now and have never changed the batteries.

Infared sensor works like a charm on this trash can. The only complaint i have is the stainless steel can is very thin and dents easily. So be extra careful when you take it out of the box. I dented my can by putting too much pressure on the sides of it. Another thing you need to be wary about is the battery compartment is a bit larger than the actual batteries installed. So there is some give and when you place the cover back down on top of the can, it can loosen the batteries just enough that you loose electrical contact.

A top of the line trash can. This trash can exceeded my expectations. I read all the reviews before deciding to purchase it and i also ones on all the other brands of touchless trash cans on amazon. Com before deciding to go with this one. I selected it after reading complaints about other cans, such as walking by and the lid automatically going up, which people found annoying. Nine stars trash cans received consistently high reviews and justifiably so. Everything about it is great. When you put your hand by the front, it automatically goes up and only then. If you walk by or near it, it doesn’t open up–which i do frequently throughout the day. It’s so easy to change the bag, and the frame inside is easy to remove when replacing the bag.

Got a great deal, so i thought it would be worth a shot. Totally exceeded expectations. It is huge, and it works like a champ. Been using it for over a month now on the same set of batteries.

Maybe i’m just a gadget junkie, but i love this thing. I’ve had it now for over a month, and it has performed flawlessly. 13 gallon standard kitchen bags fit fine, the plastic ring on top keeps the bag in place and effectively hides the bag from showing outside of the can. The sensor works great, as do the push button controls. We did not buy a plug in power source, but to date, the batteries are working fine. I am especially pleased with the price, as this can be purchased for about the same price as a can with the foot lever for opening.

I bought this can to have a touchless can in my kitchen, it reacts fast and is easy to use, the batteries have not been changed in over a year. Consit closes very fast, it stays open for about 2 seconds before it closes again, even if your hand is still over the sensor. So if you have to throw away something big you have to do it fast or whatever you are discarding will get on the lid of the trash can. The opening is pretty small, some things you will need to smash to fit in easily or angle in different ways. This works against you with the quickness of the lid closing. Prosthe batteries last a long timeit has a nice sleek look.

Good trash can, slightly slow to open. There is a seam in the back, so make sure you keep that in the back of wherever you place it. The sensor is a little slow in opening sometime, which can be annoying. But it was a very good value (paid about sixty). The one other aspect that i don’t like is that when you hit the ‘open’ button, if something crosses the sensor, it acts per the sensor, and will close after the normal amount of time. So far it has held up well and looks good. In a previous version, the close button stopped working. The buttons don’t seem that sturdy, but have not had an issue with this model. Again, wish it was a little quicker, but it works well and looks nice. Good value, worth the purchase, and would likely buy again.

Look no further, this is well designed, and priced good, too. I have owned three auto-open garbage cans (incl. Although this one is still new for me, i can tell it has a better design than the other two that i’ve owned. The lid has a good design (no visible gears), where i don’t expect garbage and debris to clog the opening mechanism, as i’ve seen for the previous two cans i’ve owned. Also, this one is a smidge wider, which seems to coorperate well with pulling full bags out; another design element that i like better. A third element of good design is the ability to plug it in, but i’m not using that, and no cord was provided. This one is superior to at least two other brands, and undoubtedly less expensive.

I so love this trash can with the automatic sensor. I so love this trash can with the automatic sensor. My husband was very lukewarm about this purchase until we got it and now he loves it. It is so convenient when you are cooking and want to get rid of scraps but your hands are full or have stuff on them. The batteries last for a while too. I have not changed them yet and its been 2 months. It is nice looking too for the price. I was expecting a cheap can but this has some weight and quality to it.

This garbage can is outstanding. This garbage can is outstanding, because there is no need to touch a possible dirty can.

Batteries ran our rather quickly. Batteries ran our rather quickly. The people who said they lasted either never opened the can or rarely opened the can. The can does work well, no mystery opening and closing thus far. It does work to keep pets, flies and children out.

Everything i could dream of in a trash can. I read reviews and looked at about a dozen stainless steel trash cans and finally settled on this one due to the good reviews and economical pricing. I was definitely skeptical though. Let me tell you it has more than delivered. The auto open/shut is awesome. Upon arrival it looked rather small to me and i expressed concern that the trash can might not hold as much as say a cheaper plastic 13 gallons can would. When you pull a full bag of trash out, it it has used every square inch of space. With every trash can i have owned before, upon removing what appeared to be a full bag of trash the trash, the trash would drop down and you would have plenty of space to add more items.

Prosthe batteries last a long timeit has a nice sleek look.

Not as good as my old can. . This is a replacement waste can for me. I had one very similar to this one for about 3-1/2 years. I am disappointed with the speed this can closes. As soon as it is fully open, it begins to slowly close. This is a bit aggravating when you are scrapping off plates, for example, because the lid gets in your way before you are finished scrapping. My previous can stayed open for a few seconds which kept the lid from interfering when i had to scrape something into it.

Good trash can, slightly slow to open. There is a seam in the back, so make sure you keep that in the back of wherever you place it. The sensor is a little slow in opening sometime, which can be annoying. But it was a very good value (paid about sixty).
