Commercial Zone Canpactor 30 Gallon Recycling Bin – Great product for cans, not so much for water bottles.

It is nice to have it all together as one unit but. It is nice to have it all together as one unit but had i realized it was not an electric crusher, but a manual crusher i would have spent much less on just buying the manual unit, hanging it on the wall and placing a cheap trash can underneath to catch the cans-too expensive for what it really is.

It’s better than nothing- but just okay. Our household uses lots of cans- soda, juice, beer, tea, misc. I rent, so i prefer not to install anything on a wall so i loved the idea of the ‘canpactor’ when i came across it on amazon. Alas, while better than ‘no can crusher’, this is nothing to get excited about. First off, other than screws, it is 100% plastic. This is not necessarily bad but it does tend to feel a bit unsteady when you use it because it is so light. I guess i could put a brick or two in the bottom but then it would not be convenient to take to the trash. Not a deal breaker, but you should know about this if you are thinking about one. My biggest issue is with the way it crushes cans. Most can crushers crush the can vertically.

10:1 decrease in bag use and space. Best compactor and can combo i have seen. I live in the country and cannot go to the dump very day. Before having this i would amass plenty of bags of empty cans. Now i just compact and compact and compact. I have not filled up even one bag before going to the dump. Onle drawback is that the ‘skinny’ beer cand will not fit without first being pre-crushed.

  • Makes recycling a snap (or a crunch)
  • It’s better than nothing- but just okay
  • Great product for cans, not so much for water bottles.

I absolutely love this can crusher/storage can. If you are the type that has cans collect on their counter and dread bagging and/or moving them to a separate location to crush them, this product is for you. The price is bit high but well worth it if you get sick of 20 or 30 cans collecting all the time. It is a large can, we use 30 gal bags in it but if you have the space, its worth it. It is a bit light if the can is empty as people complain, but its not a big deal. You may need to brace the can with your leg when you crush the cans until it fills a bit. It’s hardly an inconvience, to be honest. We have amazon prime, and although this did not qualify for it, we only paid 1. I don’t know if this is a new thing or not.

Quite useful and works well. Requires little effort to crush cans. However, as others have noted, it needs 20 pounds of weight in the bottom to hold in place.

I bought this product for our office and everyone loves it. While it’s as light as any normal trash can, we didn’t find it to be unsturdy.

Works as advertised- great product. We have one of these at work, and i liked it so much, i bought one for our home. Some people are complaining that it crushes the cans the long way, instead of the short way, but who really cares?.They are still crushed and still take up a lot less space than uncrushed cans would. One thing i had to fix though- the slot where the cans slide into the storage compartment of the unit has a lip on it that likes to catch the cans, which causes the cans to stay there on the top of the unit, instead of sliding into the storage compartment. I cut that off with my dremel, and it works fine now. The only thing i would change is to give it a bigger storage area. Or make the top capable of setting on top of a standard, round garbage can.

This product is worth every penny. I have recommended this to many people. I don’t get to use it very often because my kids love to use it. I plan to buy a second one for our church. A great way to make extra money.

Love this however only fits standard size cans.

Had a friend that gave me one of these, works xcellent, holds 400 cans, easy to operate. Extremely quick delivery considering the bulk size, light & easy to move around, narrowenough to put in small places. My friend saw it & wanted one also, so that is where thisshipment came from. It won’t crush cans bigger than a reg. 12 ounce can, but i don’tneed anything else. Good buy, cheap shipping, quick delivery.

Works better than expected. . ( making folks write more than a few words makes it much less likely that you will get a review, by the way. ) see how i filled up the space?.

Great product, 3 years of continuous use without a. Great product, 3 years of continuous use without a problem and usually store outside so it shows its strength having survived alaskan winters. Shipping cost was a little high though.

Everyone that uses aluminum cans has got to have one of these.

Bought this for where i work and it works great. Nice to have this all in one can crusher and garbage can to store the cans. It hold a lot of crushed cans and is very sturdy.

Makes recycling a snap (or a crunch). Some people complain it does no better a job than crushing cans with one’s feet; others, that it is not electric. First, it doesn’t claim to be electric; and second, if you’re young, and your feet and ankles are strong and pain-free, great (my feet are suffering from the general wear and tear on an older guy’s body). Bottom line: my wife and i sit with a few dozen cans, remove the pop-tabs (for ronnie mcd, you know), and assembly-line them bad boys through the very well-designed and well-made cruncher, which slips the cans down a slope into a wide port and into the bottom lined with a large garbage bag. It’s also extremely sturdy, likely to last for years. Very happy with this product.

Great product for cans, not so much for water bottles. . Works great for cans but there’s no receptacle for bottles and they’re not the right size to crush. I may cut a circular hole in the top for bottles. This also doesn’t take standard tall kitchen bags (i may try garden bags, this isn’t a negative, just something to be aware of). Someone said they could step on the cans just as easily (hence the photo), but i’m on carpet and i have to admit it’s fun to crush the cans. One other thing i just found out is there are small holes on either side of the chute for the can in case there’s a little liquid in the bottom of the can. If there’s only a tiny amount it will drain into the can. Any more than that it won’t handle, but a good design addition. The can crusher ‘flicks’ the can into the slot which is kind of fun, but it doesn’t always work, but you can always flick it in.

Was just what i was looking for. Everyone in the family uses it.

But i like the cover it keeps down on the fruit flys. It takes a while to get the knack of crushing the cans with this , but i like the cover it keeps down on the fruit flys.

Recycle Caddy Bin Cart “The Original” – Steady, attractive, carts

Great product for compacting storage of recycle bins in our. Great product for compacting storage of recycle bins in our breakroom at work. Also adds for ease in getting the bins out to the curb.

We just received this cart a couple of weeks ago. I like not having to ‘carry’ our two recycling containers to the curb. Looks much neater and so far also keeps our dogs from sorting through the recycling.My husband felt rather easy to put together and quality seems better than he thought when he initially opened the box.

Great product–challenge to assemble. Assembly directions were not very clear (and i am a technical writer by trade); but once i muddled through it, the end product was perfect.

  • EXCELLENT product and service!
  • Axle Bolts for wheels were wrong size
  • Nice Recycle Bin Cart But Lacks Enough Cross Braces to Support Normal Sized Bins

Purchased for an elderly parent that is not so steady on his feet anymore. I was afraid he would fall carrying recycle bins to the curb. He loves the cart and makes it so much easier for him. I view it as a safety measure as well as convenience. It’s light weight but sturdy enough to do the job.

Ordered this for my elderly parents, it is perfect, helps them bring recycle to the curb, is pretty solid for the price. The company that made the bin went out of their way to contact me to be sure it was the right size for their bin, as there are 2 versions, this one for large bins and another for small. It does have to be assembled, but it was pretty easy.

I have been stopped by more than one neighbor to find out how they can get a hold of this product and i highly recommend this cart to them. The only thing i would change is the assembly instructions. They were not as clear as they could have been. I had a pvc cart before but it didn’t last long. I will say that the customer service is wonderful. I mistakenly ordered the wrong size and they repeated reached out to me to make sure i was ordering the correct cart and i am really glad they did. I had indeed ordered the wrong size cart. The time and effort their customer service team took to get in touch with me is amazing and was appreciated.

Nice recycle bin cart but lacks enough cross braces to support normal sized bins. This is a really nice cart, but i have one pretty big issue. Your recycle bins need to be pretty big to not fall through the back or bottom of the cart. If they had a couple more cross braces to support normal size bins i would’ve given it 5+ stars. Put a couple more braces on the cart to support the smaller or normal sized bins and you will sell a lot of these.

Excellent product and service. Our garage (where we store the bins until recycling day) was an avalanche of bottles and boxes before recycling day before, but this cart is perfect. Very sturdy, more than enough space for our large orange county (fl) bins, and i no longer have to pick through the pile of stuff in the garage every week to sort the recyclables before i take them out, because everyone in the household can easily throw them into the correct one now. This cart is much better than the copycat one from ace, which was too small for our bins anyhow. I should note that the manufacturer actually called us after we placed the order, just to double-check and be sure we were buying the correct one. We were extremely impressed by the service, and the quality of the product. And i agree with something one other reviewer wrote — i wouldn’t have thought that having four wheels would make such a difference before i had them with this cart — it’s a wonderful touch.

Nice way to stack and move bins. This requires a little knuckle busting to put together but it’s a great gadget and makes it much easier to move these blue buckets around the garage.

The instructions are very weak and it takes someone with experience to follow along. On the plus side, the manufacturer provides some extra parts which is helpful in case you drop a nut or screw as i did.

Sturdy and works as advertised. Sturdy and works as advertised. Makes it easy to store and haul around our heavy recycle bins.

It is a simple design that uses good sturdy materials. It rolls right into its garage position with easily accessible bins which fit the supports snugly. On recycling day, it rolls, loaded, effortless, right down the driveway to the curb where the bins are easily removed and placed curbside ready for pick-up.

I was dubious about the quality of this cart. Nicer than expected and easy to put together. Once built it makes carrying two full recycle bins easy to get to the curb.

Very light-weight and sturdy. Easy to roll, fits bins well, attractive. Assembly was a pain but then most ‘assembly-required’ items are a pain.

Ours arrived with an incorrect part; a call to the vendor resulted in a replacement part arriving within two days. Assembly proceeded without further incident. As is customary with items coming from offshore, the written assembly instructions are difficult to comprehend, it’s best to rely on the pictures accompanying the text. Our driveway is paving stones with recessed edges, and the small front wheels can’t negotiate the surface, so it has to be tipped and pulled on the rear wheels. That, in turn, means the contents have to be arranged such that they don’t fall off when the tilt commences. Otherwise, nothing at all to criticize.

Fit my bins and does the job. Only complaint is that there were more parts to put together than i expected – the instructions weren’t very clear, but it was easy enough to figure out.

I’m so glad i purchased this versus the pvc cart which some of my neighbor’s have (they haven’t held up well). I checked out the website on dimensions of the bins and mine fit perfectly (i live in boca raton fl and am serviced by waste management). It’s a breeze wheeling it out to the curb. And it takes up a lot less room in my garage. Now i can let the bins fill up rather than taking them out every week because i don’t see those separate bins lying there with trash.

It does just what i wanted it. It does just what i wanted it to do. The front wheels do get caught on driveway cracks, so you need to tilt it some otherwise it works great. Makes taking out the recycle bins much easier.
