Rubbermaid Commercial 295573BE Small Deskside Recycling Container – I thought it would be fun to have an actual recycle bin

It is exactly as pictured and described. It is small enough to fit in my little kitchen closet and holds about two weeks worth of my recyclables. I have no complaints and would recommend this product to anyone looking for something small to hold their recyclables.

Bit small, would suggest for apartments only.

Plastic bags from grocery fit perfectly, and if you rinse the cans/bottles, the bags are reusable. I got a few of these because plastic bags of recycling were taking over my kitchen. Those grocery store bags fit perfectly inside, and since i rinse my cans/bottles, i can reuse the bags. (i don’t have recycling for cans at my apt building, so i rinse them so i can store up a big load for the public bin. ) it’s so nice having a neat row of these things on the floor next to my trash can instead of grocery bags hanging all over. Now i’ve just got to find a way to keep the paperboard recycling under control 🙂 (these taper a bit at the bottom so they aren’t good for that. )just in case it matters, they are *very* sturdy, but not too heavy to carry down to the plastics recycling bin on the 1st floor. Here are the specifications for the Rubbermaid Commercial 295573BE Small Deskside Recycling Container:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • An easy and effective way to recycle paper
  • Contains Post Consumer Recycled Resin (PCR) exceeding EPA guidelines
  • Designed to be used in systems with existing office containers and accessories
  • Placed beside traditional wastebaskets, Rubbermaids Deskside Recycling Containers make it easy to separate waste paper
  • Rectangular container, shows universal recycle symbol imprint

This looks like an office recycling container, but it’s actually smaller than that. The ‘office size’ black garbage cans and recycling cans are about 2-3 inches higher, and wider, than this can. If you’re looking for ‘office size,’ you probably want the 7 gallon size. That said, it’s a blue recycling container. The smaller size means i have to make more trips out to the ‘big super can’ that the township gave me, but it works fine, looks nice, etc.

Yep – it’s a trashcan alright. I can’t get that excited over a trash receptacle, but it was a good value and i am happy with it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Does what it says
  • Don’t be fooled by the bad reviews
  • Smaller than you think

It has a recycle symbol on the side of it so the vermin that call themselves children can see where to put recycling and not garbage.

Just like you would expect from rubbermaid. This is well made and very durable, just like you would expect from rubbermaid. It should be indestructible in a normal, household setting. This fits very nicely in our bathroom next to the toilet. It helps us remember to recycle all those toilet paper rolls and the paper cups that got used for one sip of water in the middle of the night.

Love my tiny bucket for my kitchen size. Read the dimensions before purchasing. I’d assume ‘commercial’ would of meant large & large or even medium it is not.

Fits perfectly under my kitchen sink, seems well made.

Nice blue color and recycle logo. . 4 gallon recycling bin online because i could not find it in stores. I did find the 7 gallon bin at home depot. I had to go thru a bunch of them before i could find one with a decent print of the ‘recycle’ logo. A lot of them were scratched, smeared or had other cosmetic flaws. So if you can find these bins in stores check the print quality. I was lucky as my online purchase, the 3. 4 gallon bin had a nicely done print. I really like the blue color and recycle logo.

I would like it a little bit bigger. I feel like i have to dump it often. Also, and obviously, you need to clean out your recycle-able items prior to just throwing in here (unless you use a trash bag in it) b/c just like all trash cans… it will get nasty.

I got tired of having to pick through the garbage for the recyclables that everyone else threw away, so i bought one for the bathroom and one for the living room for paper (mail). I already had them for other rooms.

Good quality and a true blue.

Good size for home office. . I bought this because it was hard to get my husband and kids to take the recycle stuff out to the large bin. Having a small one means they just have to make it to the trash can and i have placed this one right next to it. It is easier for me to just empty this smaller one into the larger one daily. This is a bit smaller than i imagined. I will probably get a larger one. I cannot blame the seller because i just didn’t read the size, it is more the size of a bathroom trash can. This one will be good in my study.

I know its for under or side of the desk, but it doesn’t hold much before needing it to be emptied. I was much better off with this size instead rubbermaid fg295673 blue medium deskside recycling container with universal recycle symbol, 28-1/8 qt capacity, 14.

This is very reasonably priced and looks nice next to the desk. We wanted a smaller waste basket and this fit right in. I would advise anyone wanting one of these to go ahead and get it, no risk that i can see. Rubbermaid seems to make a decent item here, it is not flimsy junk.

It is what it is, a garbage can. Pretty blue with white arrows on it. It holds what you put in it and doesn’t tip over easily.
