Organize It All Square Step on Recycling Bin : Not what I expected

Bought this for my parents and it came in great condition. Everything works fine and my parents really like using it.

On the small side, constantly changing bags and the metal hook gets in the way often.

Bought this for my parents and it came in great condition. Everything works fine and my parents really like using it.

Nice to have both garbage and recycle in one place. Nice to have both garbage and recycle in one place. Make sure you measure before buy. Is a little deeper than i anticipated, but was able to turn 90 degrees to fit.

This is just what i was looking for. I bought a cute lil white recycling symbol to go on the top of one of the lids and now the trash & recycling is all in one tidy lil place.

Organize It All Square Step on Recycling Bin (4942W) : This is a nice item, but is smaller than it appears online.

It’s great, but i am the only person in my house. I think that it would be constantly filling up if others were also adding to the recycling.

It takes smaller bags than a normal garbage can, but the regular ones fit just fine too.

A better design would be to lay the handle on the. It is a little skinnier than i anticipated. My only other issue i have is the metal handle that on the inside of the can, rather than on the outside. It causes the bag to snag on the handle when it is full of trash and i try to pull it out of the can. A better design would be to lay the handle on the outside of the can to avoid the bag altogether. I could stand to have a little more space for my garbage, but it is adequate. Other than than, i am happy with it. It is worth the little sacrifice of space in order to have a 2 in 1 solution. You simply need to take the garbage out more often.

This trash can is the perfect size for the space i have available and i can sort my trash and recycling. It arrived in perfect condition – no dents at all.

Decent size but we fill up the recycling quick.

This is a neat idea and works well. You think 16 quarts is a lot of space, but it’s not as much as you think. It makes it easy to separate trash from recycles and doesn’t have a large footprint.

Looks nice, works perfectly, smaller than expected. . It’s definitely smaller than i would like it, but the look and function work great. The removable bins on both side are exactly what you want and the stepping pedals to lift the top work so smooth and efficiently. I didn’t look to see if there was a bigger size but i would have like to have gotten one; however, i’m satisfied with this size because that means that trash won’t be sitting in the bin for long periods of time because it will fill up faster.

This is thus far a decent unit. I’ve had no problems with the mechanism. I use one side for trash and the other for recycling. The flaw that i find in this unit is its overall design. The plastic base extends about an inch past the bin on all sides which adds an unnecessary space requirement on the sides. However, this plastic footing is not sufficient to offset the outside hinge at the back of the unit. Even with the baseboard, this causes the lid to scrape the wall each time the unit is opened. My ‘fix’ was to place a block of wood on the floor at the back of the unit. A better fix would be to either extend the footing in the rear to compensate for the lid hinge opening or redesign the hinge.

It takes smaller bags than a normal garbage can, but the regular ones fit just fine too.

Does the job but to small for what i wanted. Needed a garbage can that would keep my jerk cats out of it so i got this. After adding weights to the lid (my cats are crazy) they were unable to get in it. But i fill the thing so fast because its small.

Great for smaller articles, a bit cumbersome for larger items like gallon milk containers, and such.

I just wish there was a hole in the plastic inserts to tuck in the excess garbage bag material. I end up with a bunch of the garbage bag sticking out of the top.

Perfect size and very nice looking. Very nicei had read all the reviews and expected a much smaller unit. Much to my surprise and delight it was the perfect size for usin fact i thought it was rather big. Nice stainless steel and black borders. It came with two dents, but it was a warehouse deal, so i did not care. Its a trash can for goodness sakethank you amazon for all the wonderful items you have for me to purchase. Still in aa (amazon ananonymous) but i do not think it’s working.

Picture makes it look very nice, however, the body is made out of aluminum, not stainless steel like most cans of its price. I have almost broken my toe on the bottom that you step on several times, they stick out entirely too far. Until you try to pull your full trash bag out of it and realize it only holds about half as much as you thought and you proceed to rip your bag trying to pry it out. If you are looking for something to make your kitchen look pretty but pretty much serve no purpose then yes, buy this. If you are looking for something practicle that solves a problem. This is definitely not the way to go.

simplehuman Rectangular Touch-Bar Trash Can Recycler : Great tall trash can.

I’ve been struggling to find a better trash can, so after returning a couple of touchless models to costco, i was ready to pump serious dollars into this beauty. It does look awesome, but it’s not perfect. One problem, which is not really a problem with the can, but with my setup, is that the only place i can have it open is (partially) under a granite counter, so when the lid opens, it smacks against the edge of the counter, leaving scratches. As i said, this is not a problem with the can, per se, but this would be something to consider if you’re thinking about buying one. Had i anticipated this, i would’ve considered buying a smaller version (i have the 40l can), which i suspect to be shorter. I also wish the spring mechanism slowed the lid down on opening. After i installed simplehuman odorsorb filter kit, the lid started to open more smoothly. Finally, and this is my major gripe: while opening the lid is very convenient, closing it will leave marks on the top of the lid. I know, i know, it’s “finger-print proof”, so there are no visible fingerprints (in dactyloscopic sense), but don’t assume that closing the lid with your bare hand will leave no marks.

It works perfect till a little one comes up and figures out. It works perfect till a little one comes up and figures out how to open it. Great sturdy material, easy to clean and i like that there is an inside can that can be taken out if the inside get dirty.

Nice but risky to ship via ups. I ordered two identical units. They came in two separate shipments – each in its own double box. Inner manufacturer box was fairly heavy. Outer amazon box was pretty flimsy and in retrospect probably did not add any protection. Both units had their backs dented in. I decided to just do my best to push out the dents and keep them – for my use the rear dents don’t really show – this is just a word of caution to future buyers. Overall, the units seem like nice quality. Stainless looks pretty good. 13-gal trash liners i buy in bulk fit the cans ok – not quite as well as the simple human brand liners (of which samples are provided free).

Third time and really charmed. This is the third simplehuman trash can i have owned and, while i have been very satisfied with each one, this one is the best. The design is clean and highly functional. The height of this relatively small capacity (very suitable for my household) makes it easy to use – most cans of this capacity are low and there tend to be more spills in the vicinity of the can. I also really like the easy open and close feature (no, it doesn’t get excessively dirty). The bag is easy to change and the lip of the bag is hidden.

  • Who knew trash cans could be pretty?
  • Really well built but not good for a family or people who want to throw away or recycle anything larger than a Trisquit box
  • Best trash can ever!

I love this trash can that i paid a crazy amount. I love this trash can that i paid a crazy amount of money for. What the hell’s wrong with me.Anyway, it looks great and the combination is hard to find in a ss can this slim. The size is large and small. As a unit, it’s a bit big, but because it has two compartments, they’re small. The lid works well and appears solid and well designed. The can’s inserts are a uncommon size making trash bags difficult to find. I’ve read s””everal comments about people using you average 13g kitchen bags.

Really well built but not good for a family or people who want to throw away or recycle anything larger than a trisquit box. I want to preface by saying that i ended up returning this item. However, that does not mean i question its quality and i certainly don’t question their customer service. It is a well made trash can and looks great. It was packaged well and arrived in great shape. When i decided to return it, simplehuman offered a return within 48 hours and were very friendly in their correspondence. I think they are a good company. My problem with the can is really its weird sized containers. Both containers were a lot smaller than i thought. There is no way you could put a cereal box in the recycling side without smashing it into a ball.

Finally a functional trash can. . After months of hearing my husband loudly curse at our current trash can, i bit the bullet and bought this can. I didn’t tell him, because i was afraid he would have a coronary over the price. Immediately upon arrival he gave me the “look” indicating he did not appreciate this “gift”. But after un-boxing and using for a day or so, both of us were very impressed with the quality, the features and the functionality. We have been won over by this outrageously priced trash can. I’m still in a little bit of sticker shock, but this trash can outperforms any can we have ever had and it promises to be an incredibly useful item for years to come. And if i don’t have to listen to the constant berating of the current trash can, i will consider this money well spent.

Pricey, but totally worth it. Exactly as described, fast and a great product.

Pretty cool because of the two sides. Needed a solution for garbage and recycle, so this will work for now. Would like a bit more space for refuse but the container has clean lines and is compact for small condo space.

Trash can was rescued from the trash. Product gets five stars, packaging one star. Arrived in a pristine box; trash can had two creases on one side (the front?). I am 84 years old and returning it was an option, but my wife said she would just turn it around and put the damaged side next to the wall. Nevertheless, it galls me to pay $140 for damaged goods. The trash can is a very good one; if you want an undamaged one, get it in person.

It’s the best garbage can i ever owned. It’s the best garbage can i ever owned. It’s also nice that you don’t have to use their bags, though they do fit perfectly if you wanted to do so.

I really love the dual compartments for trash/recycling. I really love the dual compartments for trash/recycling, and that they’re both the same size on this model. In hindsight, i wish i’d gotten the foot pedal instead of the arm bar. It works great, and i love simple human products, i just think the foot pedal would’ve been more useful than this can’s ability to keep the lid open. It’s very useful for tossing scraps while cooking, but i just don’t cook that much in nyc (viva la delivery, am i right?).

Who knew trash cans could be pretty?. This is the perfect trash can. I love combining the recycling and waste into one bin. In my small kitchen, i need all the space i can get. I love the lid, which closes nicely, stays closed just fine, and i don’t have to look at or smell any of the stuff inside. Also great for pet parents who have to deal with overturned trash all the time. The animals haven’t even noticed the trash since i purchased this one. I also like that it is taller, so i don’t have to bend down. Surprisingly, it holds a lot. The bins are narrow, so you think they won’t hold that much, but they do.

Arrived without damage – which was great bc i made three attempts to have it shipped to me by another company and it kept arriving damaged, so amazon has more secure packaging for this product. You can use regular trash can bags so don’t be put off my the expense of simplehuman bags. It’s so nice to have canister for both recycling and trash and it looks great in the kitchen. I find the touch bar very convenient. I’ve always disliked trash cans with the foot pedal – when cooking or cleaning it’s just constant opening and closing and gets annoying. This can is great bc you can open with a press from hip or elbow if hands are full and i like that it stays open until i’m ready to close it.

There is no way you could put a cereal box in the recycling side without smashing it into a ball.

Slim, stylish, and functional. . I love being able to put trash and recyclables in the same bin. Each half holds about as much as your average ‘tall kitchen’ trash can, and i empty them about as often as i did my ugly plastic trash cans (maybe twice a week). But this can is much more sleek.It sits easily in my small kitchen (the flat lid even doubles as extra counter space sometimes), and it blends in with the stainless steel appliances. ) i was pleasantly surprised how easily it opens without a foot pedal. When my hands are full i just have to bump it with my hip. Overall, i’m very happy with this purchase.

I bought the 8 gallon because i’m pretty good at recycling. Much more convenient than my old plastic one. I like it because it is tall and its fits nicely in my small kitchen. Not showing fingerprints is awesome. What’s really cool is you don’t have to take the inside plastic bucket completely out to replace the bag. There is a ledge that you can seat it on while taking out and replacing the bag. They really thought this out.

It works perfect till a little one comes up and figures out. It works perfect till a little one comes up and figures out how to open it. Great sturdy material, easy to clean and i like that there is an inside can that can be taken out if the inside get dirty.

It looks beautiful especially in my kitchen with all the stainless steel appliances i have. It very is to change out the garbage bags. Which it come with a sample pack of their garbage bags. I can’t believe how much garbage this trash can hold. My favorite part is the hand bar to open the trash can. And it does open with the push of the leg if you hands are dirt. And it is finger print proof.

I needed a tall trash can in order to keep my little dog from getting into it. This is perfect, tall enough that he can’t reach the top and solid so he can’t knock it over. I love the way the inner liner lifts and can be propped up, slightly elevated, in order to remove and replace the plastic bag. I use the bags simple human sells to fit perfectly so the bag is hidden by the top when it is installed. I don’t have much trash so one bag lasts an entire week for me. The lid keeps any odors inside the can. The touch-bar is truly easy to use; if you have your hands full, you can touch it with a forearm, elbow, or even your hip. The stainless steel looks great and fingerprints wipe off easily.

Safco Products 9927BB Desk-Side Waste Recycling Receptacle : GAP at bottom, not obvious in photo

I needed a small recycle bin for my home office and did not want two separate receptacles. This feels like one bin, though is of course both. The two halves are lightly attached and move apart fairly easily, but who moves the bin around?.It sorts my trash and that’s what i needed.

I bought this for my office. I have a very small space and no extra room for garbage cans. I used to keep the one they provided me under the desk but it was too bulky and got in the way. I keep these separate and backed up against the wall under my desk, side by side. They fit, i can recycle and trash and i haven’t kicked them once. I think it’s obvious i really like this product.

Would be nice if blue had a recycle symbol on it to. Rounder – takes up more width than appears. Would be nice if blue had a recycle symbol on it to differentiate it from the trash side. Perhaps a decal could be included?.

A little smaller than i’d have liked but j knew what i was getting. Functional, a little smaller than i’d have liked but j knew what i was getting. Just wish there was a slightly larger size.

  • Works great, with pictures and dimension
  • good enough for a trash can I guess
  • I love this as a trash for my bedroom

Sturdy and convenient receptacle for home office. This is a great recycle / garbage bin combo. I got this for my home office and it’s been working perfectly.

They are very light weight but also very durable and sturdy. The insides are a nice smooth plastic and will be easy to wipe up if needed. I am very happy with this product and highly recommend it.

Perfect for your home office. . Works perfectly to help me collect my trash and my recyclable waste. I wish it was just a little bigger, but that’s probably because i’m lazy and don’t want to have to empty them often.

Seemed like a cool idea when i bought them. Seemed like a cool idea when i bought them, but it’s difficult to find bags that fit, and once you do get back in there and the units are connected it’s a little difficult to get the edges of the bags to tuck in tightly.

They only issue i have with this is that i. They only issue i have with this is that i think they should have bags that fit for this, since you don’t really want your trash to be directly in the can. Other than that, works as you think it wuld.

Now i have a place to throw my garbage. I had been just throwing my garbage on the floor, but for some reason people don’t like that. Plus, whenever i get bored, i can just turn it around and it’s like a whole new trash can.

Works great, with pictures and dimension. Works great, pictures of the smaller one with dimensions.

Gap at bottom, not obvious in photo. Upon receiving this receptacle their is a significant gap between the 2 bins at the bottom. This not depicted in the product photo, where it appears to be perfectly even with a very small gap. Fully functional other than that.

3 gallons is large enough for home office. . I kept wondering whether to buy this one or the 7 gallon – but this one is huge, at least for home use. So, i’m glad i didn’t go bigger. I waited a long time for a decent amazon warehouse price, and still think it was a bit high, but there aren’t many similar options if you want to keep recycle separate from garbage wherever you do your paperwork and similar stuff at home.

Holds trashgrocery sized bags. Wish it was a little taller but does the job.

I know this is an unusual use, but i bought this to go in my car. It’s the perfect size to fit on the floor in front of the passenger’s seat. When i need to put it out of the way, i either put the whole thing in the trunk or unhook the two bins and put them on either side on the floor in front of the back seats. If i’m really pressed for space, the two sides nest. I’d say that it’s a bit bulky to put under a desk with them hooked together, but take them apart and they’d be perfect. They do tend to move a bit to where the two sides aren’t lined up perfectly, but then again i have it in a moving car. They stay upright even if i brake really hard. Highly recommended for commuters.

Prompt delivery and quality item, would recommend for anyone.

simplehuman – looks great and is the perfect size for short term use

Nice, functional and good complement to a stainless steel kitchen. Looks beautiful, size is enough to last for 4-5 days before emptying out. I would have liked it better if it had one compartment solely for recycling.

It was better than expected and it fit perfectly under cabinet.

Didn’t realize you had to take off. Didn’t realize you had to take off rim to remove can.

  • Solid product, but could be bigger
  • Costly but stylish!
  • Perfect for Tight Spaces

This slim line garbage can fits perfectly in the space i bought if for. It is fairly small so doesn’t hold a lot, but it is just my husband and i so it is plenty for us. Very clean looking and easy to empty.

Great small trash/recycling bin for spall spaces. . Perfect for my limited space & its very nice looking. Love the no fingerprint finish. I would have preferred a different proportion between the trash & recycling. Nowadays, we all have much more recycling & much less trash. The recycling fills up much faster. I appreciate sh’s thoughtfulness when they design their products.

Looks great and is the perfect size for short term use. Perfect size for under the desk.

Fits in a narrow area between bath vanity. Fits in a narrow area between bath vanity and wall. Since most of what we dispose of in the bathroom is recyclable, this makes sorting easy.

Fits ikea pullout (sektion). This is pretty small, but very functional. I use it in an ikea pull-out unit. Can you believe they sold me the pull-out unit but didn’t have a trash bin that fit. I was thrilled to find this.

It is nice to have the separate openings. No fingerprints due to the finish.

Looks nice, hard to find bags that fit. . The trash can is functional and looks nice. The only issue unless you buy the corresponding trash bags from simple human, it’s difficult to fit normal bags to this trash can. The bags from simple human are expensive, so i’ll be trying out some cheaper bags from walmart.

I really wish someone made something like this but cheaper, but it is a very nicely made trash can. The top has color coded rings and is removed to get to the plastic cans inside which are also color coded. If you put bags in the cans of course you can’t see their color so the top ring is important. I haven’t tried ‘regular’ bin liners in this yet but the cans are tall and narrow so perhaps buying the simple human ones made for the can is a good idea. On the plus side, the simple human brand bags are very rugged and have not ripped or otherwise made me want to change them yet so they do seem to last. In summary: i went looking for exactly a waste can like this. It has worked out just fine. I just wish it was cheaper, but i’m going to buy more of these anyway.

Would definitely recommend. . We had a very small area where we wanted both trash & recycling capabilities.

These containers are too small to be very useful, even in a space-limited kitchen. Nice simplehuman quality and look, but utility is questionable.

Love the garbage can, it’s perfect for a small nyc apartment. Clean lines and keeps a clean house.

Solid product, but could be bigger. Really like this containerwe were looking for a container with dual collector to fit in a tight space. All and all, this one is great, but we found ourselves emptying it every other day – the sections are way too small. I wish simplehuman made a taler container, which would have allowed for more recyclables to fit in. Think about it, everything you consume comes in some kind of a box, jar, jug, bottle, or a container, and unless you break it, squish it, or shred it, your container is at capacity after a day or two. We recycle way more than we throw away to garbage, so between composting and recycling, we are left with underutilized garbage container and overflowing recycling can. Maybe it’s time to rethink the ratio. Bigger section for recyclables~great looking container overall though.

Had this for a week but so far i love it for an office – trash and recycling in. I have only had this for a week but so far i love it for an office – trash and recycling in one nice package.

I was wasting time taking recycling to the bigger container downstairs in our office and ending up throwing out recycling and feeling guilty or collecting recycling on my desk which made it look cluttered.

Perfect for bedrooms, bathrooms, small home offices, etc. . I’ve been looking for a small set up like this for my bedroom/bathroom for quite awhile. Just the right size and cleverly designed so you can use liners but still see the blue recycling indicator. (this would not be big enough for my kitchen, just fyi.

White and dark wood office and it looks amazing in there. This is the cutest trash can. We have a modern looking grey, white and dark wood office and it looks amazing in there. From experience i know these don’t do well with moisture so definitely don’t put and simplehuman trash cans near moisture but in terms of style and value they’re great. I couldn’t find anything else like this on the market.

Aluf Plastics 719956 Ultrasac Heavy Duty Professional Quality Recycling Trash Bag – Great for recycling!

Love these – great price and they work great.

Big enough and then some to go on my outside trash can.

We have to have clear plastic bags for curb-side recycling. Local stores stopped carrying them. These are strong, very large, and at this quantity i won’t need more for a long time.

  • I love these bags because they are large and I can
  • Just right for my big outdoor plastic trash can.
  • They don’t have handles – which for some may be an issue – but they fit a lot and are very sturdy.

Seem to be a decent quality bag- not super thick but pretty sturdy.

These are great recycling bags. These are great recycling bags. 1 mil thick is perfect, and they fit nicely in my outdoor recycling can. These are the same bags that are sold in home depot, and it’s much more convenient to have them delivered right to the house. These bags don’t have drawstrings, but that’s not a problem. They’re thick enough to hold tons of plastic and glass bottles, but thin enough to be able to tie a knot on top. They are also the perfect size for folded amazon boxes.

They don’t have handles – which for some may be an issue – but they fit a lot and are very sturdy. . Why pay more for recycling bags?. We have used these for over a year and they work very well. They don’t have handles – which for some may be an issue – but they fit a lot and are very sturdy.

These bags are durable and big enough to hold 2 weeks worth of recyclables for a family of three who cooks at least 4 days per week. Plus the cost for a box of 100 is hard to beat.

We have to have clear plastic bags for curb-side recycling. Local stores stopped carrying them. These are strong, very large, and at this quantity i won’t need more for a long time.

Super value for these extra strong bags. Used them during a recent move and they held up famously.

Great for recyclable pick-up bags. . We use these to put our recyclables in for garbage pickup day.

Love these bags they are pretty tear resistant and easy. Love these bags they are pretty tear resistant and easy to tie. Box dispenses the bags well too. Love the name of ultrasack :p.

Doing great job what it should be.

I love these bags because they are large and i can. I love these bags because they are large and i can put larger items in them to keep the dust out. Plus, i use them to but my recyclibles in.

I am using these bags to carry small boxes to the post office, i love them it comes in very handy. It is not thick but can take some overload and weight, which is just why i need them.

Great product for school paper and plastic/can recycling program. High density and tear resistant under 40lb paper weight.

Just right for my big outdoor plastic trash can. . These bags are what i was looking for. They are one mill thick, not exactly clear but you can see through them, more of an opaque and they’re pretty tough for basic trash.

Love these – great price and they work great.

Fantastic strong bag at a great price and fast shipping.

Great quality bag for my heavy paper recyclables.

Our city requires clear recycling bags and they’re hard to find in stores locally.

simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can Recycler : Can a trash can really be so great? Yep!

Great can and clever dog proof, too. Like many other reviewers, i agree that it really is an amazing trash can worth the money if you’re into that kind of thing. I want to focus this review on the dog-proof-ness of this can, since it was a major consideration for my purchase. We foster dogs so we have a rotating cast of (usually very intelligent and troublemaking) dogs coming through our home, and we like to know they’ll be unable to get into the trash when unsupervised. None are smart enough to figure out the step feature, so you’re safe there. All our cans in the past had a lid that the dog could push up with their nose and then awkwardly grab something if the bag was near full; or they could knock the can over. This can doesn’t have a lid they can do anything with, because it’s flush with the lip around the whole can – see attached photo. (side note: this feature also makes it very difficult for humans to lift the lid without using the step, unless you have long fingernails. )it’s also pretty heavy and if you just put the wheeled part (the back of the can) against something (wall, counter) then there’re no way for them to push it either.The wheels also won’t really work unless you pick up the front of the can a bit too.

The bags fit like a glove, but i could also use some leftover 13-gallon (standard kitchen size) bags quite easily because simplehuman added a ‘bag holder hole’ into the liner-bin so you can push the excess through and have a nice, snug fit. I am giving 4 stars rather than 5 because there is a glaring design deficiency, in my opinion. When i take out the trash, i do not pull out the bag and carry trash through my living quarters to the door and out to the receptacle. Rather, i pull out the entire inner liner and carry that out. The problem here is that there is no comfortable way to carry the inner liner. The rim is sharply-cut plastic and below that a smooth wall. Very awkward to carry and a couple of handles or handle cutouts would have made all the difference. My four-year-old granddaughter recently stayed over and helped take the recycle to the bin.

Outstanding quality, attractive and good size. The only to make this better would be to manufacture it in the us. I hesitated choosing this product because if the price, but am so glad i bought it. This is a quality, we’ll-designed, heavy duty kitchen trash can. The metal and plastic used is thick and sturdy. Every piece is designed to fit snugly together to maximize the disposal areas while reducing the overall footprint. The shapes of the containers will hold significant sizes and amounts of trash. This was also a concern of mine since i was transitioning from a 30 gallon, hand crafted receptacle. The foot lever to open the lid has little to no slack so very little pressure will smoothly open the lid. I love that the lid slowly lowers itself down to close (silence) and that there is a lever that will also hold it open.

Best available, but not perfect. Update:after a year of use in a busy household, i appreciate the build quality of this canister more now than i did when new. I did a thorough cleaning of the unit, and it has withstood daily use very well: the stainless steel is thick enough to not have been dented anywhere at all and the lid-raising mechanism remains solid. As i said previously, i still wish the individual compartments were larger, and this is still the biggest drawback to the canister. Original review:this trash/recycler is a well-built, sturdy addition to the kitchen. In terms of build quality, i have no complaints. However, when it comes to form factor, i would prefer a 20%-30% size increase for each of the trash/recycling compartments. Simplehuman’s sample bags fit great and work well, but realistically i’m not going to buy special bags — i’m going to use the box of 9,000 kitchen bags that i already have. If each compartment were wider and slightly deeper, then i wouldn’t be wasting so much of each standard size bag each time, and there would be more time between bag changes. Each household is different, but i found it best to use the big side for recycling and the little side for trash.

Sleek trash can but requires special bags to fit perfectly. I love the trash can – extremely sleek, fits our small space well and doesn’t look like a nasty trash can. The other reviews made me giggle – it is absurd to spend this much on a trash can and do this much research. You want your kitchen to look nice. The only reason i don’t give this 5 stars is the fact that the recycle part is so small, i don’t have a bag that will really fit it. It comes with a few sample bags that are made for the trash can, but i won’t be spending that much money just to have bags that fit perfectly. A regular trash bag works for the trash can side. Not sure what i am going to use for the recycle side yet.

simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can Recycler, Stainless Steel, Plastic Lid, 46 L / 12 Gal : Worth the price to help recycle easier. Who wants to spend this much on a garbage can?. I did not want to but i can tell you that every ti,e i open it i am so glad we did. This makes it so much easier for us to recycle because of where our garbage cans are outside of our house, and so this eliminates lining bottles and recyclables on the counter for the next person to take out to the garbage or recycling can. Really happy with this purchase.

Fantastic solution to the issue of trash and recycling. Fantastic solution to the issue of trash and recycling. I love this trash can, just wish both containers were of equal size. We use the larger size for the recycle since now days most things are recycleable. When i first looked at the smaller side i thought i would have to change the trash bag everyday but it actually holds more than it looks like. I also like the plastic lid so i don’t have to constantly clean it and worry about dents, especially with grandkids. The spring mechanism on the lid is very well made also. When i received my order it was badly dented so i called simple human and they send a return label through e-mail and sent a replacement. Before my first purchase i had looked at the quality of different brands and simple human had them all beat.

I liked the idea of containing garbage and recycling together. However, the can is super expensive; it’s small and doesn’t hold a lot; and you have to buy custom for bags for it.

Beautiful trash and recycling bin in great size for smallish areas. Never thought i would buy such an expensive trash can. But have moved to a smaller home, where trash needs to be taken out more often, so the smaller recycling compartment is perfect for me. One slim item fits very nicely and out of the way in my smaller kitchen and makes it easier to get the trash out of the apartment and collect the recycling in one place, taking up much less space. This is sturdy, easy to open, slowly closes and has a latch for stay open operation. The bags tuck neatly inside and cannot be seen when the lid is closed. Understand there might be a newer model with a bigger floor pedal. I tried it at the store and did not see that much of an improvement over this model other than maybe looks. Sample packs of bags enclosed that fit very well.

Great trash can, serves double duty. Love that this is fingerprint proof, love that it has a separate recycling compartment. It has very nice features, like a handle in the back of the trash can where you can lift the whole thing up, it has wheels (although i’m not really sure they’re useful), it has a quiet close lid, it can be positioned flush against a wall, and it has a feature where you can set the lid to stay open in case you don’t want to be stepping on the foot pedal the entire time. I rated this four stars because although the trash can is large, it doesn’t really hold a lot of trash. I used to empty out my trash can every four days, and this one i have to empty out this one about every two days (mind you, it’s just 2 of us at home). Also, call me crazy, but i don’t want to spend the money on the simplehuman trash bags when i can buy so many more standard size trash bags at costco for a lot less. I realize that this results in the trash bag not being fully utilized because the trash can is so much smaller than a standard can. It looks like a huge trash can, but you don’t really have a lot of space for trash and even less space for recycling. Also, it’s kind of hard to pull the trash bags out of the trash cans. But, overall i am happy with this purchase, it looks great in my kitchen, the lid is quiet, and it serves a dual purpose.

Can with well designed and robust lid mechanism, handles garbage and recycling with medium capacities for both. This can is holding up well after six months of heavy usage. Pros:–outside dimensions are good for many kitchens–easy to clean, attractive stainless steel exterior. –precisely fitting inner tubs with a little thumb-space that allows a stock kirkland (costco) bag to be used. The thumb space allows for extra bag material to be bunched in place so the lid will close flush. –solid lid raising mechanism that works smoothly and carries a good warranty (unlike the wal-mart unit it replaced). –one bin, two functions, reduces clutter in kitchen. Cons:–both sides are arguably too small, though anything larger would not fit in most kitchens. We have considered (but not yet tried) swapping the recycle and trash sides). If you’re accustomed to a fifteen gallon stock can, the smaller capacity of both sides is a minor surprise–exorbitantly expensive replacement bags, though the costco kirkland tall kitchen bag, which are pennies on the dollar cheaper, can be used if excess bag material is carefully gathered and stuck into thumb recess.

High quality and a stylish garbage can. I debated for about a year to buy this and ended up buying it because of the recommendations and i wanted something that had the recycle and garbage together. The recycle bin is larger than the one i previously had in my house, and the garbage portion is just slightly smaller than our old can. I don’t use a bag for the recycle portion, and even though it fills up fast its easy to take in and out to empty it. Pros: it takes up less room than my other two bins, and it looks much better. I get compliments on the trash can when people come over and its funny to have people comment on a garbage can. It does a very good job at keeping the smell contained. I dont notice garbage smell any more when the lid is closed, when you open the lid you might smell it but once it is closed it keeps it contained very well. Its really sturdy feeling, and i like the that the clid closes quietly.

I love this trash and recycling can. I use the large side for recycling and the small side for trash. It fits nicely against my stove and takes up little room. I added a recycling symbol on the inside of the lid on the left side so people could determine where to put things. The recycling side has used only one bag in a year. I just dump it out and if it isn’t torn or dirty, leave the same bag in and reuse it. The trash side uses v size and i love that they fit perfectly. I use one bag a week here, so it costs me about $15/year in bags. Overall, i can’t rave about this can enough.

The recycling bin could have been made a. The recycling bin could have been made a little bigger though. Also, the price is a little ridiculous.

Not only is this product awesome – but when the lid clip broke. Not only is this product awesome – but when the lid clip broke, they replaced it under the warranty. It was super easy to replace, and really value companies that stand behind their products. When it came the shipping box was pretty beat up – but i took pictures before opening, and everything turned out fine. It’s the perfect size for a family of two and a dog (we use the bigger side for recycling).

Really good overall and functional – price could be better. This model has an actual trash can that can be removed, which i require. The newer/nicer/more attractive version just hangs the bag inside with no can. That doesn’t work for me because i like to pull out the can and put it in the middle of the kitchen while i cook for easy access. With this one i can do that, though i think this model is much less attractive. Mechanisms feel solid after a couple months use. The finish wipes back to new with only a moderate effort. The liners for the trash can are really high quality. The liners for the recycler are white which hides the blue part–this makes everyone confused as to which can is which because they both are white.

I was skeptical on the price, but i am now a believer. I have had this for about 3 years now, and not a spot of rust or a stratch on it. I use the larger side of recycling now, since this helped me learn to recycle more then what i throw away.

Looks great and matches well with stainless appliances. Two little wheels in the back were a nice surprise, there’s a little handle hole in the back of it to tip and roll it around. Another reviewer mentioned using the large area for recycling and the small one for garbage – that’s definitely good feedback, the recycling area is far too small for non-kitchen recycling like boxes and packaging. We’re going through bags like mad and using the uber-expensive simplehuman bags. Tried using econo bags, haven’t found snugly fitting ones yet, will post if we do. Using poorly sized bags in this can is an exercise in futility – you need the bag to fit snugly so it slides in and the bag doesn’t come off (over and over again). It’s also tricky to get the bins out when you need to change bags. They address it by having a finger hole at the top of each can in the back, so you stick your finger in the garbage and grip through that hole, then slide the can up. That’s a case of form over function – it looks darn slick, just has some goofy usability issues (i don’t like poking my finger in to coffee grounds).

A dream if you have kitchen ocd. This trashcan is an ocd sufferer’s dream. I hate having things cluttering my kitchen, especially when we’re talking about things i’m simply throwing stuff out in. When my new roommate announced he was a big recycler, i groaned. Not because i hate the environment, but because having two separate cans in my kitchen drives me insane. Even if they look the same, it’s two cans. So yes, you’re spending a lot, on a trash can/recycling bin combination, but it looks amazing, it closes quietly, and it manages to keep even the nastiest odors contained. (roommate also apparently loves to cook with some major spices. ) replacement bags can be costly, but i’ve owned this brand’s products before, and you can easily use off brand bags, especially because the unit comes with modifications to accommodate those bags.

I wasn’t sure if this would be worth the cost. I am extremely pleased with the quality of the product. We actually use the larger section for our recyclables and the smaller side for other items. Only slight negative is the need to order bags from manufacturer. You can use your own trash bags, but the custom fit ones are much easier. When i ran out if the bags sent with the trash can, i decided to re-order through simplehuman. Their website was very easy to navigate. Bags were not pricier than regular bags an arrived on my doorstep 3 days after ordering online. I ordered enough to last a few months, so no big deal or worries about running out.

Who knew i could love a trash can?. I’m another person who can’t believe , first, that i paid this much for a trash can and second, that i don’t regret it. I am glad i did not get the newer, even pricier , model that has bags but no internal containers because all garbage bags can leak, and then it would be a mess.

Nine Stars Trash Can/Recycler : The best product for the price

After all the research, it really does exist. When we decided to replace our 2 garbage can system with a dual compartment single can, i spent days researching. After seeing all of the sizes and reviews, i went into a store to see a couple of them in person in order to visualize them better. And each one only confirmed my fears–they were all tiny. No matter what, they would have never worked for us. I resumed my search on amazon again, and through a google search for something along the lines of largest dual compartment indoor trash can/recycler, i ran across this one again. I had looked at it before, but honestly i was discouraged from buying it because i was not a big fan of the big triangle stickers on the front of the can and at the time, i didn’t realize they were just that–stickers. But after realizing that this was the only can i could find in this size, i decided to give it a chance. As i was perusing the amazon reviews, i realized the triangles were stickers and that they were easily moved from the front of the can to the lid. I thought perfect and decided to take my chances and order it.

At first i absolutely loved this trash can. For the entire first year it worked flawlessly. Then, approximately 2 months after the one year warranty expired, the lid started acting crazy. Sometimes it would open and shut over and over even though there was nothing near the eye of the motion detector. I ended up turning the power switch off several times until it would settle down. It “automagically” seemed to correct itself for a while, but then it started having problems opening/closing the lid (it would make a noise, but only lift/lower the lid by an inch). I called customer support and they initially told me to perform a factory reset by removing the batteries for 24 hours. That did not work, so i called them back and they told me that i could buy a new lid for $38. 99 – but it could take “several months” to get it because they are in the middle of a corporate merger oversees and they are not set up to manufacture the new lids yet.

I love the fact that i only need one trash can in my kitchen instead of the 2 that i’ve had taking up a bunch of space. The stickers were ugly, so we took them off with goo gone and i made my own recycle symbol from my cricut machine (saw another reviewer and loved her idea) the bags i use are the 13 gallon ones but we just tuck them under the dividers well so they don’t hang out on the outside. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking to save space, have a dividing trash can and want a sleek look.

We purchased this item in september 2014 and got 10 months of use from it. We loved it for the time we had it. Worked well,held a lot, easy to put bags in and looked good. However, the screw holes for the gears are made of plastic and eventually one broke due to vibration from regular use. My husband was able to open up the lid and fix the broken piece with some super glue, but that only gave us about another 2 months of use. Now the gears just skip and it won’t open the lid. It’s under manufacturer warranty, but we’re required to pay shipping both directions to get it fixed and/or replaced, which will cost about as much as a new trash can. Disappointed that we didn’t get more use out of this. It seems like it could be an easy fix by the manufacturer to use metal instead of plastic on these important functional pieces to make a more durable product.

Great before it inevitably stops working properly. . I’ve now had 2 of these trash cans. The lids stopped working reliably on both after about 2 years of service. Ninestars’s warranty only covers 1 year. It’s a great trashcan, but reliability is pretty poor, in my experience. Expect to replace this trash can every 2 years, give or take. Ordering a new lid costs more than the can, thanks to expensive shipping from ninestars (at least the price they quoted me when i contacted them a while back).

I have been using this for 3 years and i feel like this is a great product that was implemented with a few corners cut. Overall, the trashcan does what it says. It is one large can with a center divider and 2 sturdy plastic rings to hold the trash bags in place. The motion sensor opens the lid quickly, but it is a delayed reaction. You typically have to hover you hand over the sensor which is confusing for guests as they frantically wave their hand in front of it then just push the open button and walk away. I like that, but those guests don’t know it stays open so i often find myself clicking the close button behind them. The batteries last a decent while but as they start to die the trashcan develops a mind of its own.

Two pro tips for anyone about to order this can: 1) order your d-cell batteries now, and 2) order goo gone now for those infernal stickers. Yes, they are as hard to remove as other reviewers have said. I tend to overlook a lot of negative reviews, but in this case the complaints are spot on. I wish this company knew its target market better. Those of us who are obsessive enough to order this motion-sensor trash can are also nearly guaranteed to not want those ugly stickers on the front. (they are even less attractive than these product photos. ) they are the most difficult stickers i’ve ever had to remove. They are paper and peel off in the most minute fashion. I don’t want to order a trash can and then spend another 30 minutes removing the stickers.

Trash can works fine, stickers are made in hell by satan. . My husband really wanted it (of all things), so i figured why not?. I can easily remove the atrocious stickers when it arrives. Except here i am, an hour of precious toddler nap time wasted, still trying to get these ridiculous stickers off. I don’t have a hair dryer since we just moved overseas so i’m waiting on our stuff to arrive, but i’m hoping that will do the “trick”. I just don’t understand why the stickers would be placed on the front of the can, instead of the insides of the lid. That way it can blend in seamlessly to the rest of the kitchen, as opposed to having one’s eyes bleed every time they walk into the kitchen. I kind of feel guilty for leaving such a review, blame it on shark week combined with ocd-like tendencies, but because i’m usually a forgiving person, i’ll just knock one star off. You’re welcome ninestar (oh, the irony of their brand name).

Excellent trash can — performing better than expected, w/ only a couple minor annoyances. So far, i am very pleased with this purchase. I researched these for hours, read a million reviews, and decided on this one because i like the two compartments. Though the two compartments are nice, the reason why i chopped-off one star is because i wish they were a little bit bigger — not deeper, bigger (wider). I find that there is a lot of extra room in my garbage bags after i pull them out of the garbage can. In terms of locking in odors, i can definitely attest to this happening. When he comes to visit, i am cleaning up after him the whole time — stuff that i swear he used to scold me for as a child. In any event, he is a smoker. I had no idea that he threw his stupid butts in the garbage can until i went to throw something away a day after he left.

I love the fact that i only need one trash can in my kitchen instead of the 2 that i’ve had taking up a bunch of space. The stickers were ugly, so we took them off with goo gone and i made my own recycle symbol from my cricut machine (saw another reviewer and loved her idea) the bags i use are the 13 gallon ones but we just tuck them under the dividers well so they don’t hang out on the outside. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking to save space, have a dividing trash can and want a sleek look.

The two compartments are decent sized, and the bags are relatively easy to take out. If you are using a standard/tall kitchen trash bag, once you take the full bag out of its slot you will notice that you have a quite of bit of room to add extra garbage/ recyclables. The motion sensor is pretty sensitive as well, plan on the lid opening if you walk to close by it. You are able to turn off the motion sensor and manually lift the lid. Our item came pre -dented (in several areas) even though it seemed to have ample styrofoam padding in the box. The dents popped out easily but the metal in the areas that they were in are weakened. I do like the face that the back of the can is flat and fits up against our cabinets and that when the lid opens, it fits under the overhang of the counter top (standard height counters).

Love it, but the top doesn’t open all the way. But i would love it more if it worked properly. When we first received it, it worked perfectly. But after a few weeks of use, the lid now only opens half-way. If i manually push it to open it all the way, it stays open and won’t close automatically. I’m not going to bother trying to get it replaced as i’ve read feedback that the seller required that you have to pay your own shipping, and it’s not worth it to me. I’ll just keep using it in its half-way opening state. If it was working perfectly, i will say that i love the hands-free opening and closing. I don’t have to wipe my hands off to lift the lid while i’m cooking.

Great trash can, stickers don’t come off easily. We recycled at our previous home but did not continue the practice when we moved into our new home. We go through a lot of recyclables though so i wanted to start again, but i also wanted a very streamlined can such as this one versus having two cans. I didn’t even know if this product existed until i searched on amazon. I like the can itself a lot. The batteries are easy to install. The auto sensor works well to open and close the lid. As other reviewers have pointed out, you have to intentionally and somewhat slowly wave your hand across the sensor about 6″ away. There’s no houdini magic party trick. But that’s also okay so it’s not flipping open and closed when you walk by.

Nice looking and functional. I like this garbage/recycling container most of the time. The mechanism that raises and lowers the lid is a bit noisy, but i suppose that is normal and really isn’t a problem. I have to try to find better fitting bags – the typical 13 gallon kitchen bags are bigger than the bin needs so i usually throw away a bag that is only 1/2 to 3/4 full which feels very wasteful, but i am concerned about a smaller bag not hooking in effectively.

I kind of feel guilty for leaving such a review, blame it on shark week combined with ocd-like tendencies, but because i’m usually a forgiving person, i’ll just knock one star off. You’re welcome ninestar (oh, the irony of their brand name).

I like that each side is larger in capacity (9. 3 gal) than the popular simplehuman round step can (7. Com/simplehuman-round-trash-stainless-steel/dp/b0000e2oas/ref=sr_1_12?s=storageorganization&ie=utf8&qid=1439966812&sr=1-12&keywords=simplehuman+trash+can that i am replacing it with. Before, i had the step can, plus an unsightly brown paper grocery bag next to it or on the counter for recyclables. I also owned the single compartment nine stars http://smile. Com/stars-touchless-automatic-motion-sensor/dp/b0031m9h3a/ref=pd_sim_201_3?ie=utf8&refrid=1s7n4xvhswqwxt325tpd. I loved that it was easy to line and remove the waste bags and how it kept the smells in. I’m sure this one will just be as good. Better on this two compartment model is that the on/off switch is on the outside, rather than inside where it would get nasty crud on it. Con: i appreciated how someone said the stickers are removable, and they put them on the top. I was looking forward to doing that, and also switching the sides so that the side closer to the kitchen is for garbage. Well, to my dismay, the darn things are stuck on so well, i could only get a few tiny bits off the corners. So the stickers are damaged, and no longer able to be repositioned. I’m currently trying a tip online to use olive oil to remove adhesive. I’m going to have to buy new stickers to replace these.

Excellent trash can — performing better than expected, w/ only a couple minor annoyances. So far, i am very pleased with this purchase. I researched these for hours, read a million reviews, and decided on this one because i like the two compartments. Though the two compartments are nice, the reason why i chopped-off one star is because i wish they were a little bit bigger — not deeper, bigger (wider). I find that there is a lot of extra room in my garbage bags after i pull them out of the garbage can. In terms of locking in odors, i can definitely attest to this happening. When he comes to visit, i am cleaning up after him the whole time — stuff that i swear he used to scold me for as a child. In any event, he is a smoker. I had no idea that he threw his stupid butts in the garbage can until i went to throw something away a day after he left.

I have been using this for 3 years and i feel like this is a great product that was implemented with a few corners cut. Overall, the trashcan does what it says. It is one large can with a center divider and 2 sturdy plastic rings to hold the trash bags in place. The motion sensor opens the lid quickly, but it is a delayed reaction. You typically have to hover you hand over the sensor which is confusing for guests as they frantically wave their hand in front of it then just push the open button and walk away. I like that, but those guests don’t know it stays open so i often find myself clicking the close button behind them. The batteries last a decent while but as they start to die the trashcan develops a mind of its own.

The trash can itself is great however, all three orders came with a crease. The trash can itself is great however, all three orders came with a crease in the metal due to a true engineering blunder. The screw, located in the dead center of the front, which mounts the plastic frame to the steel is right on top of a ridge in the stainless steel. Obviously, when the screw is tightened the metal creases.

I like having recycling and garbage in one receptacle. The automatic open-close operated by batteries was too finicky. I like having recycling and garbage in one receptacle. Too new to know if it will keep the garbage odor contained. It does need to be emptied more frequently than my former solution of 2 plastic bins. Like the stainless steel styling. High price, but so far pleased.

Organize It All Stainless Steel Step-On 16-Gallon Recycle Bin : The two interior removable cans on both sides has a handle on it for easy lifting out

After reading all the reviews–positive and negative– i decided that this bin was still far superior to my previous way of dealing with my recyclables (using bags and small plastic trash cans. ) it arrived in perfect condition, with nothing to assemble. I am so pleased not to have an eyesore any longer. The only bin that is smaller than i would like is the one i use for plastic bottles. Still, glad to have this item in my home and sorry i waited so long to order it.

We found a dual can that was the perfect size for our space. After searching for awhile, we found a dual can that was the perfect size for our space. Unfortunately it arrived dented in multiple spots despite being well padded. It was going to be too big of a hassle to pack it back up and return it, so we ended up keeping the damaged trash can.

Organize It All Stainless Steel Step-On 16-Gallon Recycle Bin (4904)

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Side-by-side double compartment recycle bin; 8-gallon capacity per side
  • Constructed from stainless steel with plastic liners for durability
  • Details include foot pedals, bucket handles, and independent lids

This is better then what i thought i was getting. . This is better then what i thought i was getting some of the reviews made it seem like it was cheaply built however that is not the case. Both cans have a handle so you can grab the can out. There is also a handle on the back of the main can to carry the whole thing which was a nice feature to find. I just need to make a sticker or label for which one is garbage and which one is recycle.

Our family uses it specifically for recyclables and it’s great. We use one side for cans and bottles and the other side for everything else. Each side is easy to remove for disposal of the recyclables and easy to clean as well. I would not recommend this for someone looking to hold trash as the handles make removing each been so much easier and you would more than likely need to cover them with the trash bag.

Just shy of being really great. . This trash can isn’t bad, but it could be so much better with just a few tweaks. The cans are decent, though a bit small. The bars attached to the pull-out plastic cans makes removing the trash bag challenging. The foot pedals barely have the leverage necessary to lift the lid so it tends to lift up slowly and not all the way. There’s also no lip to the lids to grab manually if the need arises. Overall i’d say that the product is adequate given the price, but i really wish they’d adjust a few small things to make it really great.

Organize It All Stainless Steel Step-On 16-Gallon Recycle Bin (4904) : I use this to store our dogs food. We have two dogs on two different types of diets. I want a side by side storage unit for pet food and could not find one. Keeps the food fresh, you only smell the food when you open the lids. Only issue was the size from reviews and description i pictured something a lot bigger.

I should have payed better attention so i cannot blame that on anyone but. I bought this thinking it was bigger, i should have payed better attention so i cannot blame that on anyone but myself. The box it came in was massive though so i didn’t figure it out until i opened that box to find a much smaller box inside of it. If you live in an apartment something like this would be great, but i don’t. For me it is the same as putting my recycling in a shopping bag and it would fill up too fast to really use it as i’d like to. It’s a great design though and i’ve had it on my wishlist for a while because of it being stainless steel. I feel like giving it 3 stars would be cheating it though because it is a really cool design, i just wish it was bigger.

Product had a huge dent when i took it out of the box. I’ve ordered another one that hasn’t arrived yet. I hope that one isn’t damaged?.Dent is so large i can’t even bend it back into place. I ordered the 60 gallon a year ago for my office and love it.

This is a great way to separate recyclables. This is a great way to separate recyclables. Each of the two compartments is spacious, and each one contains a removable, sturdy, heavy-duty bin; so they can be individually emptied and rinsed out when needed. The construction of the stainless steel body is solid, and the lever that you step on to lift the lid is not at all flimsy. You can keep it nearby, right in the kitchen, which is so convenient. I’m wishing i got the model with three compartments, but i don’t have enough space for it.

Best double can out there – just master the bag. I love this – in fact, i just bought my 2nd one. I shopped around a lot this time to see if there were any others – and this still looks like the best. The good: the large size, the narrow and streamlined look, fits almost anywhere, the containers that hold the trash can be used without bags, and it’s very sturdy. After 5 years i still had zero dents- even with 2 young boys running around my house. I get so many compliments on it. The bad: if you want to use trash bags (i do for trash, not recycle) – you have to get the method down for it to fit perfectly because the can is a little small for a standard bag and will pull up at one end if not secured when you put the interior can in. My trick is to put it on (over the handle), pull it down 1/3 of the way down the can, then pull one of the ties to secure, then twist that end until it’s really tight (do not knot).

The two interior removable cans on both sides has a handle on it for easy lifting out. I bought this step on can 6 months ago. I’ve seen a few complaints about the bags not fitting. The two interior removable cans on both sides has a handle on it for easy lifting out. If you put the bag into the can and gather the excess top edge of the bag and twist and tuck it between the handle and the can, it fits perfectly. Then just drop the can into the container. Perfect for what we need as we recycle more than we trash. I would highly recommend it.

Except the peddles don’t really work terribly well. . Except the peddles don’t really work terribly well. The bins are a bit small and like others have said, it’s less well-suited to using bags than would be nice, but it gets the job done and keeps things looking more polished than other recycling bins. We’re disappointed with the listlessness of the foot peddles, but they pop the lid up enough to get access and as a whole it looks nice in our kitchen so we’ll keep it.

The cans inside (though narrow) actually hold as. The cans inside (though narrow) actually hold as much as my other cans. These look great in my kitchen. Doggies cannot get into them. 4 year old can still place items in it.

Works great and easy to use.  this neu home recycle bin is perfect. We just moved into a new house and wanted an extra bin for recycle. It is stainless steel so it matches and looks great in your kitchen. You can step on the petals easily and they are color coded in case you want to put different things in different sides it makes it easier. The lids are a nice black color and the can itself is very durable and well made. I love that the bins inside easily pull out so you do not have to waste bags. Just pull them out and dump so easy. The bins inside also have nice handles to grab onto instead of holding the sides of the bins.

Still, glad to have this item in my home and sorry i waited so long to order it.

Delivery took a week longer than expected and then arrived with a big dent in the back on a corner. I was able to get most of the dent out so did not return. Other than that i would give it 5 stars as i love it. The stainless steel seems on the thin side, and the bins, while not as wide as expected, definitely deeper and hold a lot. They could be wider all around as there seems to be extra space inside the interior once both bins are inserted. I purchased 8 gallon trash bags as some suggested, but they were not long enough, so we use standard 13 gallon. When the bin fills up, we remove the bag and dump trash from other parts of our home into it to finish filling the bag up. We are a family of 4 + 3 pets and it takes several days to fill up the trash and recycle bin. I love the recycle bin conveniently located with the trash so i’m not making upteen trips to the garage to the large recycle receptacle the city picks up.

Ok, but would not buy again. It’s functional but doesn’t look like it’ll last long. The steel is very thin and i wouldn’t be surprised if anything hitting it will dent it in. The levers are also something that i’m concerned may not last long. It doesn’t seem like the trigger to open the top would last if you constantly opened it just using the lever. I only softly open with the lever until the lid comes up a bit then i open with my hand. To put the bags in it’s also a bit of a pain because they don’t stay in easily. When you place the bin back in, the bag comes off of the sides. Need to throw out trash more often because they don’t fit much in, which is unfortunate because the bags still have a lot of room.

People had problems installing the bag?. I use glad bags with a drawstring, no problem.

I really like this trash can. It is handy to have recycle and trash together. One difficulty with it is the handle on each trash bin. It interferes with pulling the trash bag out and can be a little frustrating getting the bag out.

Trash Bags – Exactly as described

Bags are exactly as described from the color, thickness, and size. A little expensive but when you need a specific color cost will increase.

Love these although i thought they would be opague, i’m happy with this purchase.

High quality these are thick and do not rip so i will be buying these again. Here are the specifications for the Trash Bags:

  • 100 Bags/Case
  • 1.2 Mil
  • 40″W x 46″H
  • Rubber Bands sold separately.

I do wish bags were better packaged than simply stacked into a box. Plastic bags are large enough and durable – two attributes i was looking for. I do wish bags were better packaged than simply stacked into a box. Having a roll of bags would have made them more convenient to dispense. But product is everything i was lookng for and is good. Will do business with merchant again.

Bags not as portrayed, thin & see-through. Bags are not as portrayed in the picture here on amazon. They are very thin, so thin you can completely see through them. They are also not the color pink shown in the photo. Instead, they are a pale, pinkish hue. Instead of coming in a proper box like bags you buy in a store, they arrived as raw bags crammed into a large box.

You can still see through them pretty much. Bigger than i thought which is fine with me (31-33 gallon bag seems like an easy 33gal.

Rubbermaid Commercial BRUTE Recycling Roll-Out Trash Can – These are nice, however

Good, but not as heavy duty as i thought.

Whell made and tough wheels, but. Really like the construction, but really hate how narrow the wheels are. It falls over very easily because of the narrow spacing. As long as you are not pulling it very far or towing it down a 300 yard drive like i do, you should be fine. It is a lot better made than the other trash bins i have had.

Inexpensive solution for trash handling. Stands up to tenant abuse and garbage truck loading systems. Here are the specifications for the Rubbermaid Commercial BRUTE Recycling Roll-Out Trash Can:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • One-piece handle provides large, strong grip area
  • Ground-hugging base enhances stability
  • Inset wheel position prevents damage to walls and doorways
  • Molded-in foot tilter helps maneuver heavy loads
  • Superior strength and durability
  • Measures 41-7/8″ x 32-1/3″ x 25-1/3″

Best deal ever on an awesome garbage can in vibrant colors, sturdy and manageable. Loved it so much, i ordered a second one. Don’t know how they can afford to ship for free, it’s so big. I constantly get compliments, especially living in pittsburgh and coming in the pittsburgh black and gold. Manageable by adults and children. Holds a large amount while being manageable. One of my favorite purchases every on amazon. Comes delivered by fedex in a huge box, which was a bonus ‘toy’ for my kids to play with 😉 price cannot be beat. I never thought i could order a great garbage can online and have it delivered free for a lower price than purchasing in the local big box stores.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A Warning to My Fellow Customers
  • Not just for garbage anymore 🙂
  • My girlfriend can very easily roll this when filled

This is just like what the city of chicago issues all their residents. My parents don’t live in chicago, however, and have to supply their own pails. They have to drag the pails back and forth once a week and as a result, the bottoms of their cans have worn out. Sturdy, wheeled so no more dragging (and erosion), this thing is huge. What used to take my parents 3 small, cheapo pails now only requires one of these big boys. My mom took a sharpie and wrote their address on the side. It stands out nicely against the yellow. The lid is attached, so now it’s not getting lost.

It rolls beautifully when stuffed full. The large wheels take the ‘grunting’ out of the job of pulling it to the street. I plan to buy another next spring and toss or give away the old square brown one we purchased locally. Was going to get a blue one but the yellow was 10. I don’t give a hoot about color so got the same thing in yellow. I will use this seller again.

A warning to my fellow customers. If you have purchased any of the ‘rubbermaid commercial brute hdpe 50-gallon rollout trashcans’ you may notice that amazon says that the ‘husky drum liners, 55 gal clear’is ‘frequently bought together’ with that trash can. For that reasoni made that mistake of buying them together. That trash can liner does not fit in that trash can. If you try to stretch it over the top of the trash can, the liner rips. Instead get the ‘tall 65 gallon black trash bags for toter®, 50 per case’.

Great service and quality product. The delivery company had given us a window of 8a-5p. Luckily, i happened to be home all day that day. They arrived early afternoon and were speedy and polite. The trash can came in an enormous box, which my children thoroughly enjoyed. The can is lightweight and sturdy. The blue color is accurately portrayed in the product photo. Prior to use, you have to lock the wheels in place. They are not locked in place during transport due to the amount of space they take up. You have to slide the wheels out and use a rubber mallet to click the bar between the wheels in place.

Even full it’s easy to wheel to the curb. I like that the lid stays attached. I thought about it a long time before buying since it was expensive, but i’m pleased with my purchase.

The lid is heavy enough to where no critters have gotten into it and the color is very attractive. This is perfect size for two people maybe even three with moderate wastefulness however more than this and the trash can would be too small. When it arrived i though it was a bit small as it is smaller than my neighbors but maybe they jyst have jumbo sized one. It seems very sturdy and i love the convenience of this huge item being delivered to my door. It was perfect for the price and could not have been anymore convenient.

The item is ok–it’s just a refuse can, of course–but given the price, i expected it be in excellent condition (that is, all blue). The plastic on the side of this blue can has a kind of rust discoloration to it. I purchased a gray trash can, same rollout model, at the same time. It has the same issueperhaps these cans are remainders?they clearly have flaws. I probably wouldn’t purchase again.

First it came later than expected, then it came all beat up and the lid is bent. I know it’s a garbage can and it’s not ment to look pretty but when i purchase something new i expect it to look new.

Very happy with my purchase.

Actually sturdier than the commercial trash can that. Actually sturdier than the commercial trash can that we had been ‘renting’ from the our disposal company.

Lid is a bit on the flimsy side, dents in very easily when the sun hits it which allows it to pool water inviting mosquitoes, otherwise happy with it. I drilled the bottom up a bit to add drainage/ air holes as i’m using it to store garden soil for our upcoming move, handling the weight very well considering.

Not just for garbage anymore :-). – as you can see i got this not for garbage, as i know it would work great, but our trash pick-up people supply one for us. I got it to put by our door so i can have my delivered packages (amazon) put inside, keeps them safe from the weather. Working out great, no more snow/rain soaked boxes, unless they don’t fit, which rarely happens.

Trash can is of good construction, i ended up returning the product due to its size. I assumed it was larger then what it really is. I would recommend to go to your local lowes or home depot to compare the size of the cans. I thought a 50 gallon can was much larger, which was my fault for not knowing. I ended up buying a 97 gallon trash can.
