Happy Sale Recycle Bin Separate Recycle Bag Waste Baskets Compartment Container : I absolutely love these. I keep these under my desk at

I have been trying to sort out my trash/recycling system in our apartment for a while, and i thought these would work for us. Turns out they don’t really – but that’s more of a situational issue than a problem with the product quality. They pretty much come exactly as they look in the picture, with the square inserts you assemble and then place into the bags. The fit is snug, but not overly difficult to put together. They are colorful, cute, and have the chinese character on the side of them as well. They hold their shape well, and are easy to move around when you need to. Bags fit well and you can tuck them around the edges of the square plastic insert to hold in place.

Perfect for household recycling.

I was a little hesitant on what the quality was going to be like, but after receiving and using for a couple of months i can say that i am very happy. These hold a decent amount of recycling products and fit together nicely with velcro on the sides of the bins. Each bind includes a nice semi-rigid plastic liner to help things from leaking and to help support the containers. The containers also have lids that velcro shut.

Great way to separate recyclable materials. I’ve already reduced the amour of garbage in my trash can and it’s been less than a week. As someone else suggested, i lined the cans bin with a standard garbage bag just to keep take rigid liner tidy. When it comes to the paper and plastic bins, i’m not too worried about it. My only suggestion is that the maker add a glass bin.

I purchased these to use at a social group i’m a member of. The bags work good, but i wish there was one for glass.

Cheap, easy to set up, keeps me organized. The baskets hold a good deal-i end up emptying them at max capacity every 1 1/2 weeks on average, and that’s with 4 adults living in the house. The plastic doesn’t leak, so my car doesn’t get filthy taking it to the recycling center.

These were purchased for my sister and she is absolutely in love with them. Very easy to use and set up. It appears to be a quality product. We are planning on purchasing one for our home as well.

Really has made recycling in my home much easier. I just wish there was one for glass and one for cardboard as well. They are kind of small, so expect to have to make weekly trips to the recycle center.

  • They hold more than you’d think
  • I will say they are a bit flimsy without the plastic inserts but once you put those in they look awesome. When I ordered these I
  • Colorful, cute, and a great solution for those who need to sort and transport

Recycle Bin Separate Recycle Bag Waste Baskets Compartment Container with Inner Frame (3 Bins + 3 Inner Frames) by Happy Sale

Insides a bit hard to put together since they are not folded in a manner in which they are to be constructed. But, once together, this is really a durable product and holds lots.

Even without the inserts these would stand upright without assistance but the liners make them very easy to clean. Holds a lot more than i thought they would and they fit nicely under my sink.

I got this to help me start to recycle and it helps they are a aesthetically pleasing size where they sit next to the trash can they are not too high or big to be obtrusive for me. I like the plastic insert so it is easy to clean. I did decide to use the paper for glass and found it doesn’t do well with a lot of weight as one of the straps snapped but the bag it self is good. Don’t over fill or make to heavy with heavier objects, if you don’t put glass in there i don’t think you will have any problems. They are easy to transport if you are taking them to a remote recycling location.

I ordered them for my desk at work so i could be a little more conscious as to my waste habits and they have been great.

The inner frame is a little flimsy in that it comes apart when washing but it maintains it shape inside the outer sack. The outer sack is clearly labeled and just lifts out or our large recycling bin on the porch. Collect all week and they just pick them up and off you go. They area little small for a large family but we are a family of three and they are perfect.

These actually hold much more than you would think. I lined them with kitchen bags even though they are washable. They take up much less space than what i was using previously. (see photos)even though they are somewhat flimsy, they are perfect for holding recyclables. I would definitely recommend them. I’m giving them four stars instead of five because i wish they were a little bit taller.

Love them – attractive in our entryway behind our door – i would not want them any larger -and the inserts within them keep them upright – the velcro attachments are wonderful and sturdy.

Didn’t realize that the product was sold in korea. There was a paper that described the product but it was only in english. Although the pictures on the paper was self-explanatory given that the product is not a complicate it device or anything, it would have been even better if there was a translated version just for the important part. I am using it already and i already like it.

Bins are made of hard durable fabric. Size is a little short/small. Would be better if they were trash can size so can use with normal trash bags. Definitely get the bins with the plastic sheets for the inside box. Holds up the bins structure when filled with items and is removable for cleaning.

The product came with zero instructions and the. Limers was impossible to put together. As soon as you snapped the second piece, the first one came apart. Honestly, a single folded plastic piece would have worked just as well and saved me the 20 minutes of frustration.

My daughter and her roommates did not have recycle bins for their dorms and were looking for a nice containers that were huge and bulky.

Pretty much what i expected. The inserts for structure were super easy to assemble to me. The bags smelled like poo or something, but i’m sure it’s a chemical smell. However you don’t smell it from a distance, just close up when putting it together, so not a big deal to me. Could be cheaper seems like to me. I haven’t used the velcro. I don’t see why they can’t just sit side by side.

They are made of a plastic material, so they can be wiped off. The inserts keep them standing up, and provide a solid base for the bottom. In case it is unclear, the inserts do actually go all the way down into the bags, so they aren’t visible. The bags can be velcroed together if desired. There are handles, which makes it easy to carry them.

The work as advertised but there is just a horrid odor when you first open it.

My recycling area finally looks a little stylish. I needed something to store my weekly recycling as i had been using one of those giant blue bags from ikea and it just looked messy sitting on the floor. When i came across i had to purchase. They are basically somewhat larger reusable shopping bags but a different type of material. The velcro allows them to attach and stand in a row. I will say they are a bit flimsy without the plastic inserts but once you put those in they look awesome. When i ordered these i thought they had japanese writing on them since japan knows how to turn everyday items into something cut but when i opened the package and saw it up close i realized it was korean (hangul) writing on them. Added bonus as i am a huge fan of many things korean.

These are super cute and easy to set up. I use them in my pantry to collect our items inside before taking them to the larger bins outside. Controls the sprawl of items and sorts easily.

They all velcro together, have handles for easy removal & best is they have plastic inserts so the bags will stand upright. They are also good size bags, it will fit a lot of recyclables surprisingly.

I keep these under my desk at work, i just can’t say enough good things about them. They velco together, have handles so you can carry, have the sturdy inserts (even a bottom piece). I will be buying more, one for home and another for work.

Opening package is stinky (like opening a plastic shower curtain), you may want to open outside and let sit out for 15 minutes so the gases can “air out”. Product doesn’t come with directions on how to put the plastic liners together, but after some thoughtfulness, i was able to figure it out. Size is good, like the concept and using successfully.

I love how the plastics inserts are easy to remove and clean. Theyve also been really great for my kids, as they are able to sort easily. I’m asked about them every time i go to the recycling center.

Bought these to help with my building’s trash & recycling rules, and they’re doing that job well. The english labels are large and very clear, and the images make sense. I really like the colors, though the blue is closer to teal than i expected. The plastic inserts make them very stable, but can be tricky to put together and insert into the bags. Each bag has velcro along the left and right sides, and this also helps the stability. The material feels like a recycled plastic grocery bag (like wegman’s), which should hold up decently well, but using a bag inside would probably help with longevity.

Would definitely recommend these. Perfect size, they look very nice. Very happy with this purchase.

I am very happy to try these out. My poor recycling bin to the right fills up so quickly, we end up not placing everything in our actual trash cans. This is a wonderful addition.

I actually really love these. Putting the plastic together was a bit more of a challenge than i comfortably care to admit, but within a few minutes, it was set up sturdily despite not being able to read the korean instructions. They velcro together to create one light weight unit with large volume. We go to the recycling center about once a week and, honestly, we could probably wait even longer because of the size of the bins. Plus they have a weird appeal to them which i like. That helps because in our small apartment they sit in our living area.

I am quite happy with my recycling bags although i do wish they were a little bigger. Also, the instructions for putting them together are in another language. It would be nice if they were in english as well. I do wish there was a bag for glass. The great thing about them is they come apart easily and have handles to make it easier to carry the items to be taken to be recycled. I highly recommend them, and give them 5 stars.

The plastic inserts need to be snapped together but after i constructed the first one the other two were easy. The bags themselves are like any other reusable grocery bag and cannot hold more than a few pounds unless you want to risk ripping them, which shouldn’t be a concern because these are small enough that you can’t accumulate too much at once. The bags are plastic instead of a cloth material making them easier to spot clean. On the sides of the bags are carrying handles as well as velcro strips to seal the bag if needed. If i had to complain about anything it would be the smell upon opening the package, like burnt plastic but it fades away, or the fact that this ships in several layers of plastic that cannot be recycled which is kind of silly considering the product type. I much prefer these over traditional bulky bins because they are easily portable and are a fun design.

The plastic frame really improves this product 100%. I thought assembly was easy. You just stand up the bag,and then insert and open the four sided “square” with the slits at the bottom (this supports the sides). Then take the square base and crease the edges along the seams to make a tray shape. Now, insert the tray in the bottom of the bag and slide the tabs into the slits on the side. I think the trick is to assemble it inside the bag.

Taymor Industries Taymor 02-D8588ORB Oil Rubbed Bronze Pedestal Toilet Tissue Holder – very sturdy, doesn’t fall over when pulling paper

I like these stands because i don’t have to damage walls to attach a tp holder. Unfortunately, with time plastic bottom cracks and exposes concrete weight which starts crumbling and leaving sharp pieces on the bathroom floor. However, it takes awhile for the base to crack and i like the convenience, so i keep buying these stands. I would like it more if the base plastic was sturdier. Meanwhile i applied felt strips to the bottom of the stand to eliminate contact of plastic with tile.

Had a little trouble putting it together as the threads didn’t quite match up on one part of it. My husband was able to fix the problem. Looks great in the bathroom.

This product is average quality. I had to return one due to the chrome peeling off. My family is pretty careful with things but i’m not sure i see this lasting long in a frequently used guest bath. I love the look and it has a heavy base.

Didn’t want to make holes in my new wall and love the ability to move it around. It is even more stable than i thought from the description. I love that the toilet paper is on a roll and can’t come flying off if i pull too hard.

Perfect to sit next to toilet. The toilet paper hoder was put on wall next to tank and was twisting their back now it’s right wher it should be and very nice looking.

  • Pedistal toilet paper holder
  • Let the TP Roll!
  • Oh yeah– it works great!

This is just what i needed in my tiny guest bathroom. It is well balanced, looks good and fills my needs. If your tissue holder is in an awkward place then order this, you won’t be sorry.

When i remodeled my powder room, i no longer had a good space for a toilet paper holder (the last one had been on the side of a vanity that i replaced). The stand is attractive and sturdy enough not to fall over. I am pleased with this purchase.

Very sturdy, doesn’t fall over when pulling paper. Looks very nice, toilet paper holder part seems a little cheap, but works fine.

Put together easily by screwing the pole into the base and the tissue holder. Finish is lovely and delivery was really quick.

This is very attractive and is just the right size for a small bathroom.

This item was just as described and was easy to assemble. The base is heavy and we had no problems with it tipping over.

Exactly what i wanted for our bathroom. No more holes in our walls to hang paper holders.

Good quality for the bathroom toilet holder. Wish that these was a paper guard to control the paper after pulling down. It was the only reason i didn’t give it a 5 star rating. The chrome base was well weighted and good looking.

Overall, i am very satisfied with the product. We bought our old one from bed bath and beyond. But, after years of use the cement base just cracked and broke. We sought a replacement and discovered that bbb no longer sold it and now sells the cheaper, lighter and poorer quality ones. After an extensive search, i came across the product on amazon. We were so happy that amazon had it. Unlike other similar products that look the same, the taymore products have a much heavier base being filled with cement. This is a plus, since it keeps the pedestal from moving when pulling or tugging to get paper. In fact our pedestal holder for our other bathroom broke too and we purchased the replacement through amazon too. Though, i really like the product, i recommend taymore make it from stainless steel or some other heavier metal instead of a lightweight aluminum tube filled with a cheap base filled with poor quality concrete that can crack.

Sturdy, functional, looks good. The base is heavy enough that it will not fall over from use or accident. The height is perfect and it is compact enough to stash anywhere you need it. Good buy, good price, fast delivery, very easy assembly.

After redoing out bathroom we no longer had a place to hang a toilet holder. I have to say i didn’t think i’d like this as much as i do. It is nice and heavy so you can tear off the tissue without it tipping over. It has a very nice satin nickel finish on it and looks really good. If you are looking for this type of thing this is the one to get.

Holds one roll of toilet tissue

Love, love, love thisthis by far is such a better way to go to avoid ending up with strained, stretched, loose tp holder that never seems to be able to hold a whole roll of paper without it flying off the wall. This pedestal is heavily weighted and getting your paper, snapping it off is no problem, it doesn’t move or tip and even the kids don’t have a problem using it. I bought two of these and would recommend buying it.

Nice heavy base, won’t be easily knocked over. I do wish the bit that the toilet paper roll rested on wasn’t plastic but metal as well, but oh well. Looks good in my bathroom and matches the other brushed stainless stuff we’ve got going on.

It could be a bit taller is all.

Bought a new house with lovely fresh painted walls. Beautiful white trim in bathroom with eggplant colored walls. No paper holder on the wall, so i decided to purchase a pretty white stand. I like this one because it is very white and weighted. One little bit of metal on the bottom was not flush. I just took a hammer and beat it a few times and it was perfect.

Nice heavy base, study and will not topple over. Reason for 4 stars is that the top is getting a little looser after a few months.

No wall space at all in my bathroom to hang a holder on the wall. This is a nice and heavy item that will not get easily knocked over.

Easy to assemble no tools required

Perfect 👌 and cane as expected.

Works great, it is as advertised. The base is also weighted so that it doesn’t easily fall over.

I bought this product because my guest bathroom has a big window by the toilet and i can’t mount a wall holder at a comfortable level. The pedestal holder matches my other bathroom accessories perfectly and adds a touch of uniqueness to the room. I was worried that it would be too light and fall forward when dispensing the toilet paper but it has a really heavy base and is very well constructed. Please note that the actual roller bar is plastic, not metal – i was prepared for this because i had read reviews on other versions of this product and i have to say it’s not very noticeable. Also, it stands just under 2 feet tall and i wish it was a bit taller (would deduct 1/2 a star for this if i could). Overall, very functional and has a beautiful, shiny sheen that really brings out the facets of the pewter finish. Can’t wait to see what my guests think.

The fitting that holds the upright is not the best design to get it straight. I would have preferred a bolt, nut/washer arrangement instead of that ‘pressure adjusted’ washer thing. Can never really get it to stand exactly straight and moves when changing the paper roll which requires adjustment each time.

I purchased 3 of these for our newly built home.

This is a really useful little item. I previously had a brass pedestal tissue holder, but wanted white to match a little corner cabinet i recently bought. This was just perfect and seems to be very well made; simple in design, but quite attractive. I am well pleased with my purchase.

Looks great and you can use all sizes of toilet paper.

Attractive storage solution for the bathroom

My toilet paper role was located in an inconvenient spot and i needed something i could easily reach. This is a beautiful bathroom accessory and it inspired me to add bronze fixtures to my bathroom. The base is heavily weighted and i can easily see when my husband has not replaced the roll of toilet paper.

This pedestal toilet tissue holder is well made with a heavy base so that it is not easily knocked over. It is especially useful when a space near the toilet is not available on a wall. It takes only minimal space and is easy to move to a convenient distance for it’s function. It’s a simple design that fits many decors.

Knape & Vogt SBM9-1-20WH In-Cabinet Bottom Mount Pull Out Trash Can – Great for narrow cabinet!

The quality of the hardware and glides was top grade as always with knape & vogt. Installation was extremely simple. . 4 wood screws, and 5 minutes.

This is a very small trashcan but is the only one that would fit in our cabinet, just wish they made a deeper model because there is a foot or more of unutilized space at the back of the cabinet. Anyway, the whole thing is simple but made of good quality materials, the pull out handle is a nice touch, definitely recommended.

Far superior to any other brand.

I am returning this because even though my cabinet is wide enough for the track frame, my cabinet door frame is not wide enough for the tracks to actually slide out. I could have notched them to make it work, but i hate to do that. I bought the same product, just one size smaller and it fits – though i would have preferred this one with the larger bin.

The rails are good, the handle didn’t qork that well, but overall its a good product.

It is unobtrusive and slides in and out of the cabinet with ease and easy to clean. I also like the cover which is a necessity for a garbage pail. It may appear small but can handle the large size garbage bags with no problem. This is a replacement for a similar style pail i was looking to replace for a long time. Thank you knape & vogt for saving the day.

The sliding metal hardware didn’t fit in my small cabinet. Recycled the metal and i’m enjoying the narrow basket for paper recycling under my desk.

Instructions are not clear, was hard to assemble.

I have an old kitchen missing a few modern conveniences. Specifically the trash can situation. I like my trash can inside my cabinets, near the sink, and easy to pull in/out. Previously i was just shoving a standard trash can at an angle inside the double wide cabinets under the sink. But i was butting up to the plumbing and disposal (and after 4 years of use we caused a leak). But i have two tiny cabinets on either side of the sink that were ideal for a trash can. Finding a trash can to fit a 7 3/4′ wide x 17 3/4′ tall cabinet was nearly impossible. Finding a fancy pull out trash can on glides?. Hai found this item when searching for 7′ trash can. Amazon’s q&a was super helpful.

Pleased with the idea of this, being out of the way. Wish it was a little bigger.

The dog figured out he could push the trash can down the stairs to get to the grossness inside, so we had to do something. The only available cabinet we had was tiny (like its only purpose was to hold cookie sheets) and i thought there would be nothing available to install a trash can in there. My cabinet is only 8” wide, and the description of this item said that you need 9” (that’s what she said). I took a chance after reading some hopeful reviews and it will indeed fit those small, awkward cabinets. Yes, it’s small, but not like grandma’s sewing-room-trashcan small. Really it’s about the size you would want your kitchen garbage to be before it starts getting smelly and needs to be taken out. I had a 13 gallon trash can before, and the bags still work in this trash can, with some overhang over the top of the can. Installing is only hard because of the small space trying to fit both your hand, the screw, your other hand, and the drill- it can be daunting. Seems sturdy enough to hold our normal amount of garbage- like it definitely won’t get too heavy for the hardware before it gets too full and needs to be taken out. I put some wd-40 on the track just so it would glide a little easier, but that was just a preference thing.

Not a very smooth track, but good enough for me.

I have a small cabinet and this fit perfectly. 4 screws to install, took about 5 minutes if that. Here are the specifications for the Knape & Vogt SBM9-1-20WH In-Cabinet Bottom Mount Pull Out Trash Can:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • KV heavy-duty ball bearing precision slides
  • Updated wire management system holds bins securely in place
  • Includes a clip-on handle
  • Partially assembled unit with heavy-duty mounting straps installs easily with only 4 screws

It fitted excelent in the spot that we wanted. It was very easy to install and good quality.

Fits perfectly in our tight cabinet area.

We bought this trash can for a narrow kitchen cabinet. I double checked all the measurements with the product specs and when it arrived it fix perfectly. Super simple to install too. My only knock is i wish it was a bit taller, but i can live with it. You have to buy the lid separately.

We have had ‘in cabinet’ trash containers in our kitchen for quite a while. This one has a lift out container (lovely), is larger, and doesn’t feel like it is going to fly out of the cabinet if you pull too hard. The price, compared to a more widely known competitor, is amazingly low priced. Thank you, thank you, and thank you.

We tried items from rev-a-shelf and their stuff is so darn cheap. The can in this is small but it’s perfect for the kitchen cabinet that ween need to fit the trash can in. Couldn’t be happier with the quality of this product. Also, the installation was a snap because the quality of the mounting brackets make it easy to install the screws.

Instructions could have been better. Took about 30 mins to install. Not sure about durability but fit perfectly into my under sink cabinet.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • The can in this is small but it’s perfect for the kitchen cabinet that ween need to fit

Had very limited space to make an under sink trash can work. This fit perfectly and works very smoothly. Slide mechanism seems to be very well constructed. Will try this brand in other applications.

This works very well for the limited space i have under my kitchen sink. My one crticism is that the exposed edges of the pull out mechanism are unfinished and sharp.

The actual dimensions are 8′ inches wide at all widest points (instead of 8. 38 based on product description). If i knew the actual is narrower than described, i would have ordered a wider option. Nevertheless, i found the trash bin to be ideal for grocery bags. I would also recommend purchasing a behind-the-cabinet-door grocery bag holder (e. Interdesign or mdesign product lines on amazon), so there is room to hold grocery bags for use in the trash bin. There should be plenty of room in 24-inch deep cabinets that are standard in u.

We already have two pull out bins in our kitchen, but they are far from the stove – so we converted a cabinet used to store cookie sheets into an extra trash cabinet – it’s been awesome. The bin isn’t large, but it’s perfect for handling food prep trash (empty cans, plastic wrappers) and saves me from repeatedly walking around our kitchen island to get to the primary trash. My only challenge is finding the ideal size trash bag — it’s larger than a ‘waste basket’ that work with the small size bags at the grocery, and the regular tall trash bags work but are a little big. But, the convenience of adapting a wasted cabinet into something really useful has been worth it.

Amazing product for our tiny apartment. Nothing else would fit under our sink. My only issue with this product is the small size of the can itself. Regardless, the bin was easy to install and works very well in our kitchen.

Not the most sturdy thing ever.

Just right size in my small cabinet. However, the installation is tricky. With a small peice of paper instruction with crapy tiny diagrams wasted so much time.

Hefty Touch Lid 13 : “What’s in your can”.

This less than satisfied about the price.

I like the lid, so easy to open, just push the button.

This is the best trash can ever. It really does keep orders in, holds the bag secure, the lid is very sturdy, and the can itself is durable. I would definitely recommend this product and would order it again.

Solid bin with a nice latching top.

The color(red) go great with all the red in my kitchen. It is very hefty,trash does not smell with the top on it.

Great size for various purposes.

Hefty Touch Lid 13.3 Gallon Red Trash Can, Keeps odors in when closed

  • Capacity: 13.3 Gal (50 Liter)
  • Uses 13-Gal tall kitchen trash bags
  • Spring-loaded lid opens with the touch of a button
  • Press lid down to close Red trash can with stylish finish Lightweight, durable plastic construction
  • Keeps odors in when closed

Got this can to replace one that we have had for years. This one is very sturdy and the top is very well made.

Easy to operate lid (push and pops up). Perfect for kitchen but i use mine in my outdoor shed.

The lid never worked, so i threw it away. But the color is perfect in my kitchen, so i’m happy.

The size is perfect for the space and the red is a match.

I had one just like this in white, had it for about ten years, then the spring gave out, if it’s possible to love a garbage can i loved this one, still have it use it for recycling. I couldn’t find one with the spring load in the store, bought one that’s suppose to pop up but only pops up half way. No spring loads anywhere, now i have a brand new red one that will be loved and taken care of.

The part that worried me was the springs in the top; but they work fine. It came fast and package well. If it is still working after 6 months then i will give 5 stars.

I purchased this trash can to keep my dog out of the trash. It is ok (she hasn’t figured out the issue, yet. Where the lid attaches to the can, it only has a catch on the side where to ‘open’ button goes (i purchased 2, they were both the same). So it’s very easy to knock off the lid. It does contain a lot of the odor, though.

I like the red color and how it doesn’t take up much space. I need to keep rodents out of my garbage and this is perfect.

Very sturdy and the color looks amazing in my kitchen.

Great item, arrived earlier than expected.

This arrived today in a walmart box. Didn’t look reused but whatever. Lid is a little gimmicky but i really only cared about the color and i wasn’t disappointed. A nice deep rich red leaning towards burgundy. We’re using it outside on the new covered patio my husband just made us. Fits right in and feels like it’ll last nicely.

Hefty Touch Lid 13.3 Gallon Red Trash Can, Keeps odors in when closed : Keeps pets and toddlers out and smells in.

More durable than i expected.

Seville Classics 17-Gallon UltraHD Commercial Stainless Steel Trash Bin – The best trash bin ive had

My animals tend to knock my trash can over. They cannot knock this one down. You will have to get bigger trash bags with a larger opening but it’s worth it not having to spend my days cleaning up a dumped trash can. I use my old trash can for recyclables.

Update: 1 year later and we have purchased a second one for the officeexactly as advertised. Does not smudge easily and we opted to install it without the wheels. Has held up well in our busy office since we put it in about 6 months ago.

Yes, it looks like a miniature version of something you’d find at micky d’s. But it’s sturdy, holds a lot more than a 13 gallon can with a similar footprint, and is great for both regular trash and recycling (i bought two). With the old 13 gallon cans, my kids often shoved the swinging lids too far back and ended up getting trash on the floor (or the lids in the garbage). That doesn’t happen with this one, because there’s just one hole in front and no way for trash to leak out the sides or the back. While this was the primary reason i bought the can, i’m also enjoying an unexpected bonus. Instead of emptying cans 6-7 times/week, i’m only having to do it twice a week. So, even though the cost of the bags may be more ( i purchased some local 18 gallon compactor bags which fit well), i don’t have to use as many of them. I should have bought this years ago.

Very solid, really like this – and i even get a lot of compliments from houseguests (who compliments a trashcan?. Lol)only problem is that holes for screws in handles won’t take the screws they sent with it, so i can’t add the handles. I even took the handles and screws over to a carpenter friend and he said the plastic was drilled wrong and i should get different screws – too much bother, i’ll live without the handles.

Organize your recycle area with this near professional bucket. The metal is a bit thin so take it easy on the 3 point shots from across the kitchen. Also the screws that hold the handles on are a bit of a pain if you use a liner in the pail. Only use the correctly sized trash bags too (they are bigger than a tall kitchen bag and heavier too). All in all was a good buy that made recycling less messy. It does dent easily we had to send the first one back because it took a hit in shipping and could not be reformed.

I love that you can’t see right into it. I also like that if it is a bit too full, the top keeps it contained. It is sleek, and doesn’t look bulky in my kitchen. The outside has not been dented yet by my two crazy boys (2 and 6).

I really like this trash can. Goes well in my kitchen too. I like the idea trial look of this can with my country, shabby chic, rustic, mid century mod entire house decir. Maybe i should have just said eclectic. I am disabled so the casters help a lot too. You will like this trash can.

Clean lines and a sturdy plastic top make this a winner. Remember to buy 18 gallon trash compactor bags for this bad boy – the regular 13 gallon bags are just a bit too small.  ultrasac extra heavy duty professional quality compactor trash bag with antimicrobial odor control, 40 count.

 * sleek, clean, durable stainless steel, i got this garbage cans for two reasons. * the first, my husband’s dog is a garbage thief, a digger. *the second reason is because we swapped out our range and had a larger area to cover. * the product measurements are absolutely correct. * i thought it was the perfect opportunity to get double cans or an odd shape to enclose the area. * i looked at probably, over 100 garbage cans. * i never thought much about buying one before but there were soooo many considerations. It had to have at least some stainless steel to match my appliances.

This is the best kitchen waste can i have ever bought. I love every thing about it. The size is perfect, it’s easy to clean & it’s on wheels. So, even when it is full you can move it if you have to. I really like the user friendly open face top, which easily lifts off to empty, or to clean. I’ve had it a long time now & hope it lasts forever because i may never be able to find it again.

Super simple to put together. . Need phillips head screwdriver to attach the handles and it comes screw in legs or wheels. It is perfect for my needs in the kitchen. Bigger than a typical plastic kitchen can but not massive like an outdoor can. It’s tall, so if sliding under counter or something be sure to measure first. It’s just what i have been looking for for a long time.

We were looking for a kitchen trash can. It doesn’t seem like that big a problem but finding a quality, stainless steel, large, kitchen trash can turns out to be harder then it looks. Most are small, poorly made, very expensive, or have electronics or lids or other complexities that we don’t want to deal with every time we have to throw a piece of trash away. We have dogs and trash and a small kitchen. This trash can solved all our problems it holds a huge amount of trash (we use the large 33 gallon size), it has a front opening that we can just throw the trash at with one hand (usually hitting it the first time), it has wheels, it has a flat top that we use for extra storage space, and no odors or smells come up from it. The dogs can’t get into it and seem to totally ignore it and the stainless steel is very easy to keep clean. Now no trash can is perfect. There are screws holding it together inside and these have a tendency to catch on the trash bag when you go to remove it, especially if you keep stuffing more and more trash into the can instead of taking it out when you should. This can be solved by putting a small piece of duct tape over the screws or just not putting so much trash in the can at any one time. I would definitely buy this trash can again.

We removed a trash compactor installed in the island in our kitchen, and didn’t want another one. We added a cabinet door and didn’t install a toe kick, so this can fits perfectly (without the lid) and rolls in and out with no effort at all. The kirkland compactor bags work great with it, too. It comes without the handles or wheels put on, but the wheels just snap in (it also comes with little tiny legs you can install instead of wheels). The handles, though, were hard. We had to drill screws into them beforehand to prep the holes before we could then try it when attaching to can. Here are the specifications for the Seville Classics 17-Gallon UltraHD Commercial Stainless Steel Trash Bin:

  • Includes wheels (2 locking) and leveling feet
  • Easy to clean stainless steel body with removable durable resin top

Large, sturdy, and on casters. Opening is big enough to fit a gallon milk container through if you crush it a bit. I love the casters and being able to move the unit with ease. The only negatives are finding the correct size trash bags (i found them on amazon), stretching the bags opening to fit over the sides (often times the bag tears at the top ) and the screws inside sometimes tear the bag during removal of the bag if over-stuffed. I have learned how to avoid or work around these issues easily. Overall i absolutely love this container.

I replaced my previous trash can because the bags were nearly impossible to remove once they were full. With this one, i can easily replace the bags even when they’re over filled. I followed the advice of some other reviewers and put duct tape over the screws on the inside to make sure the screws didn’t snag the bags. It might have been fine without the tape, but it couldn’t hurt. I also love that it rolls smoothly around my kitchen.

The wheels are very easy to install. I put two screws on opposite sides of the handle in the holes loosely. Then tightened them a bit and was able to slide the handle to get the other two holes to match up. Then i tightened all the screws. You will need your own phillips head screw driver for this. I am using it in my closet to store gift wrapping paper rolls upright.

Looked long and hard for a kitchen trash can this good – spent a fair amount of money on others along the way. Who ever made this is a genuis. If you don’t have a ‘trash drawer’ and want a larger trash in the kitchen than fits under the sink this is the way to go. We had constant tension in our house over the lid to the trash. I always wanted the trash covered (looks better, less smell, keeps the trash barrel from being overloaded, etc. ) my husband always hated the cover – no matter what kind we got, (swinging top, step-on raised top, etc. We’ve been in perfect harmony since this arrived a month ago. I was afraid the opening might not be quite large enough for getting the styrofoam bottoms of family sized meat packages and other messy things into – but so far no problems at all. The wheels are a great addition (now the trash barrel gets swept all the way around everytime the floor is swept and mopping the floor is easier too).

Love the size, wheels and the ease of the lid removal. Only drawback is we had to put tape on the inside lip to keep it from tearing the bag when taking it out. We also keep a second ‘liner’ bag in place. It can roll all around my kitchen with ease.

I really like the look, size & function of this trash can. It was easy to put together & i like being able to roll it around. However the wheels are a pain, they don’t stay screwed into place even after i re-tightened them it’s constantly un-level & wobbles. Can’t get all 4 wheels to touch the floor at the same time. Only have had it for a few weeks.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • How Did I Live Without This. Excellent Garbage Can. Convenient Handles. Rolls Smoothly. #Two of The Four Wheels “Lock”. #
  • Should have bought this years ago!!
  • Materials could be more robust but functions well.

I don’t think i have ever felt so ambivalent about a product. The casters are heavy duty and work great. But the metal portion is thin and cheap feeling and the resin top is somewhat thin and a bit warped looking. The handles are placed so low that i can’t imagine anyone actually using them. And apparently the screws needed to install the handles can cause the bag to rip. Despite all this, i give the trash can 4 stars because it functions so well. It easily glides with just a nudge. The opening is just the right size. And odors can be controlled by rinsing off cans, etc before throwing them in.

This is so much better than a garbage can with a closing lid. The access is large, yet still keeps what’s inside fairly well hidden. Seems funny to say about a garbage can, but we tried several in our kitchen. We like this for its capacity and ease of use. We left the wheels off to fit under the lip of our counter. It comes with little feet to use instead of the wheels if your prefer. The wheels would make it easy to use. Bottom line: good design, well made.

I wanted a fast food restaurant style trash can for my kitchen. I thought it would look cool. Wheels work perfectly and can lock so they don’t move. It is so much easier to just throw away the garbage in that hole. I also have the sensor type garbage can, which is cool too but i have to get close to the sensor for it too open. I put the sensor one in the basement.

I have three boys who need an easy to use trash receptacle. It is so much larger than the trash can built into my kitchen cabinetry. I am buying more to put in their bedrooms.The only complaint: the bag is hard to remove when completely full so do not use cheap trash bags. If you do, you will wind up with ripped bags.

If your not looking for any special trash bin that does special tricks that matches your stainless steal appliances, then this is the bin to get in my opinion. I wanted a trash can that i didn’t have to worry about failing after a short time with no moving parts and one that could truly fill a 30 gallon bag. Well i have found what i was looking for. This is a perfect match stainless steal wise and it looks good. The top comes off easily when time to take out the garbage and at the same time it holds the bag in place when perched on top of the can and the bag will not fall into the can even when its full. The hole on the lid is the perfect size. (you can even fit a milk jug threw it) this trash bin is light and easy to clean.

We have a big dog who is very well-behaved except for the occasional stray dog flashbacks where she raids the trash can. She can’t tip this one over because it rolls, and before we leave the house it’s easy to roll it into the bathroom to lock up. We’ve tried several allegedly dog-proof cans and this one although not perfect is the best so far. It takes larger trash bags than kitchen size, and we are finding we like not having to flip open a lid. I would definitely buy again.

It’s big enough to hold enough trash that my teenage boys can throw at it. The wheels were easy to put on but the handles were a little hard to get the screws to thread and attach. Since the trash bag covers it, i figured it wasn’t worth it.

Exceptional commercial style trash can for our kitchen. Easy to assemble and condenses garbage as opposed to our previous 13 gallon stainless trash can. Love the commercial lid design as compared to the noisy step open lid style. Plus it contains the odors and is convenient to remove for large waste disposal. The wheels make for ease of movement if you want trash can near you for messy projects. Best trash can i’ve ever owned.

Have been dealing with our dog getting into the garbage for 6 yrs. I kept it in the pantry but it never failed someone would forget to shut the pantry door and we would be cleaning up trash all over the house. Got this one just because our old one was getting gross and old, and low and behold i don’t have this problem anymore.I leave it out in the kitchen all day, i do think the wheels and the lid freak him out a little which is fine by me lol the only time he touches it is if it’s full and he can easily reach in to grab something. I think this was obviously a style for a shop or garage however if you have dogs this is a definitely huge help. It does have screws on the inside that will snag the bags as other people commented, i just took their advice and put a piece of electrical tape over each one. I wasn’t paid nor did i get a discount to write this review (i wish) :).

This just arrived yesterday and i cant believe how exited i was for a trashcan. The old one was only 11 gallons and easily filled up in a day or two. Plus, the lid to it somehow got lost (don’t ask me), so the dog was always pulling trash out of it. I looked at reviews online for a while and this one seemed to be exactly what we needed. Its 17 gallons so it will take a lot longer to fill up, and the dog cant pull things out now. I liked that it came with wheels and regular feet so you can decide which you want to use. A lot of people say it looks like a commercial trash can, but i personally like the way it looks. The trashcan is great, however, we bought this 3 days ago and paid 62 dollars, and now all of a sudden it’s 31 dollars with free shipping?. We’re pretty annoyed that we just payed double what they’re charging for it now.

Love this – none of that stupid top getting stuck or broken. This is open but keeps the smells contained. Very good quality, durable and actually looks nice.

I’ve actually received compliments on this trash can. People have actually asked me where i purchased this from. Gone are the days of the kids emptying their plates into the trash bin and somehow hurling their food onto the wall behind it; fast forward to the scene of me trying to scrub some crusty god-knows-what off of the wall days later. This baby is shiny, it has wheels and it has a lid, which i liken more to a hood. If this ain’t the best thing i’ve purchased in a great long while i don’t know what is. I feel compelled to buy five more, just in case there’s a run on them, but really just because.

It’s perfect for an average sized family’s kitchen, attractive, easy to change liners and clean, rolls (but can be locked in place), and you can set your recyclables on top. The only thing i didn’t like was trying to put the handles on (i’m old and the bolts were a bit difficult to thread) but you only have to do that once, and it’s an excellent price for an excellent product.

I needed a new garbage can for my kitchen and my criteria was something that was bigger than the average kitchen garbage can that could hold the 30 gallon trash bags, but was not thirty gallon in size. So, i moved up from my old rubber (bland looking) 10-13 gallon to this seville (modern looking) 17 gallon and it fit the bill and then some. I’ve always used the 30 gallon size bags because they hold more, but with the shorter cans the garbage tends to hang over and you only get 2/5ths of the bag full; not anymore. Also with the bigger can you don’t have to take the garbage out as frequent. That was another reason for my choice. It come with 2 sets of feet: (4wheels, or 4pegs); i chose to use the wheels to maneuver back and forth when dumping the smaller garbage cans from various rooms in my home into this larger one. Also the top of the garbage can has a tray area so that you can rest items on as needed when placing items into the disposal section. It really comes in handy when you have lots of food stuff from plates that need to be scraped off into the garbage.

These garbage cans are really nice. They have good casters and can be rolled around instead of lugged around. They have a top that comes on and off. I can’t think of a single thing wrong with the design of this garbage can. My wife originally bought these, and we have one inside for kitchen use and one outside to collect trash (we spend a lot of time outdoors). It seems to hold up to the summer heat of arizona (in shade) for a season so far, however, time will tell.

Solid, portable, looks good. The opening is large, easy to change out the bags. The space on top has come in handy when you need a 3rd hand. Totally happy w this purchase.

Why bother with a trash can with limited capacity and a bothersome mechanical lid?. This can is spacious,easy to remove the bag even when full, easy to dispose of large trash items. Bullet can i would have to remove the top in order to put boxes or bottles in because the swing door in the top was small. This can has a large opening that permits easy access for disposal of anything i choose to chuck in it. This is much bigger than cans that cost twice as much. By the way, a previous reviewer noted that this can does not have the smooth surface pictured, it does have raised ‘ribs’ as shown in one of the alternate photos on the listing. It’s still attractive and does the job.

It has met all my expectations. I highly recommend using a larger bag than the standard 13 gallon, tall kitchen trash bag. Whenever we tried that size it would split around the top and then be very hard to get out and tied up. We switched to the 30 gallon trash bags, which are actually less expensive than the ones we were using. The 30 gallon bag works marvelously. The extra space helps keep at bay the spill-over when removing the full bag from the can. Any remaining space can be packed with garbage on hand while the bag is being taken out to the outdoor curbside cans. I would highly recommend this can. I have had many people admire it and inquire about where i purchased it.

On wheels so easy to maneuver. Lid comes off easy to empty. One thing i like is there is an opening only on the one side (the side pictured) so i can throw trash in and hit the back of the can and the trash falls into the bag. Stupid yes but if there was a hole for depositing trash on both sides it would go through. Also easy to clean and excellent size. Build quality seems quite good. Had this trash can for many months now and no issues.

Worm Factory 360 WF360B Worm Composter : Works but too little scale of production

Update after 1 month:i just started my second tray less then a week ago – after 12 hours i already had worms climbing into the newest tray. I still have a ton of worms working on the bottom tray but it’s pretty neat to know they are thriving and looking for more food. I’m amazed at what they eat – i feel so much better knowing i’m not wasting food because a roll got moldy – ‘the worms will eat it’. Has become my mantra of late. The only thing i have been struggling with is keeping the top layer of newspaper moist. I think it has too many colored areas on the pages so isn’t retaining the moisture well. Eventually i’ll change it out for something 100% black & white but for now i soak it in water every couple of weeks. The worms don’t seem to mind. Update after 24 hours:the garage got rather cold as evening went on and more worms were escaping. It was probably about 45* in the garage and since it was a new bin there wasn’t any warmth inside the bedding and food pile.

My worm factory arrived in good shape and was not warped in any way. But did not come with instructions, guide, dvd, or ‘up to date content’ that were supposed to be included as pictured. We’ll see if it works the way it’s supposed to before i decide if it’s worth returning.

I was very pleased with the wealth of information provided with this worm bin. I was initially expecting to only get a simple worm bin with a few bedding materials and a few instructions on how to set it up. But instead it comes shipped with a full booklet on just about everything you need to know to get started in vermiculture. I appreciate the fact that these sellers are committed to the success of their customers by providing so much useful information. The booklet details how to troubleshoot and identify problems that may arise, how and what to feed your worms, how to properly maintain the bin over months, how to harvest the castings from the bin when it’s ready, anatomy and life cycle of worms, how to keep your worms happy, and so much more. Receiving this booklet was definitely a breath of fresh air compared to all the small sheets of papers i get with broken translated english printed on them. I also like how you get enough bedding to fill two trays so you will be set for several months before you need to go get some additional materials for bedding (if you don’t already have some). Currently, the worms have been quite happy in their new home (as far as i can tell). I’ve had the bin for about a month now and it has worked well for me. Obviously i will need more time to fully access this product, but so far, it’s been easy to use and useful.

(as the process continues, the review will update. )hi, i’m michelle, and i have worms. A few weeks ago i made the decision to give vermicomposting a try. I live in an area that supports recycling, but we still have to take the items there. The rest of the trash costs us per weight, and ends up decomposing in a way that is not healthy. Why not reduce the trips to recycling, the money spent having someone else take away the rest of it, and end up with healthy compost for our plants?. Hey, when it’s january and you live in one of the coldest states, you start thinking about gardening so that you don’t go all jack torrance. I read a lot on the topic, including a lot of advice on making my own bin. However, diy bins almost always involved work in getting your slimy friends to go to the other side of the bin. I decided to make the investment and buy a stackable unit, because they’re made and used in a way that the worms migrate up and leave the finished compost behind.

I ordered this bin along with 1,000 worms from uncle jims worm farm. I have been chopping up veggie scraps for the bin, and i freeze it for when i have time to get my hands dirty feeding the worms. I have already been able to harvest a full bin of soil to plant under my new raspberry plants. Kit came with detailed instructions and everything i needed to kick start the process and i still have left over minerals to keep going. I am a 3-6 year old director and plan to incorporate this process of composting in our class next year. We have compost bins now, but the raccoons and squirrels gnaw their way in and the bins and the bins create more of a feeding area for critters rather than a composting site. This is a much more wholistic way of composting food scraps. The process is very educational and the cycle of it all is rewarding.

This worm composter is really well designed. It is durable, easy to use, and comes with an excellent manual. I took a two day class on vermicomosting at the state university, and everything in that class was included in the handbook that comes with this worm factory. So you are going to be really well prepared and informed by reading the included book. I got my first batch of worms from growing power in milwaukee, wi. The worms were transported in their normal compost in a 5 gallon bucket, and they were only in transit for about 1 hour. The worms adapted to the composter very quickly and the short travel time made sure they were not traumatized. I am using two worm factories side-by-side so that i have enough composting capacity for my needs. I put my paper in a crosscut shredder first and then mix it with food and put it in the composter. I really like that the worm factory comes with probe thermometers so that you can monitor the internal composter temperature.

I’ve only had mine for about 2 months now, but it is working as described. I’ve gone to the site chat to ask questions and been answered well. The worms seem happy, the composting is going as described. Getting rid of sad & decrepit veggies & fruits, coffee grounds & egg shells, plus certain types of paper trash, too, for a beneficial reason instead of just throwing them away means i’m not totally throwing away or wasting money anymore and majorly cutting down on trash. Have found that cutting up the produce/paper into smaller bits really makes a difference, too. Did have an issue with the gnats & fruit flies, but after the first raking to mix everything up – this cut off the odors, too – it cut down on them considerably and the site gave recommendations on other remedies to help as well. Am now raking/mixing at least once a week. I’ll report back after 6 months or so – since there’s only 2 of us, the rack build up is probably slower than for a family, to let you know how it’s still going & if i’m still as enamored.

After reading an interesting article in the chicago tribune about worm composting i searched around for a worm composter. There were lots of choices out there, this is on the high end of a home composting system, it seemed very complete and i like to order via amazon. I ordered my worms at the same time. I like the multitiered system that allow the worms to progress at their pace. One thing that is not immediately evident is that it is not recommended to leave this unit outside in the elements – it must be out of the direct sun and not exposed to the rain. I set it up in my garage and plan to bring it to the basement in the winter. ) order the composter in advance of getting your worms and set it up per the directions. The worms respond better to the bedding if it has had a chance to ‘mature’ a bit.

Started my worm colony on feb 9, 2017. I acquired 1000 worms from uncle jim’s worm farm and so far i’m getting my first finished tray. My worm management isn’t the greatest as i’ve added more food to the first bin so their still working their way through the food on the first tray. I like the worm factory and the only complaint i may have is making it easier for the worms to migrate upward. You have to switch bins and make sure eggs and worms aren’t in the finished bin. If i could of down this over, i would of just gotten a flow through worm bin like the hungry bin worm farm. I see a lot of home made items on you tube but quite frankly that system looks far user friendly.

My worms are doing great and multiplying as well as tons of other bugs int he same bins. The whole idea of this kind of composting is designed for a very very little scale of gardening like in apartment, where you have only few plants to maintain. If you think you will get rid of your kitchen scraps-no, you will not, worms need so little food that all of your kitchen scraps will go to somewhere else (like in regular compost pile if you have one). With my little garden around the house this volume and speed of production is pretty useless. It could be more useful for seed starter boxes, but i am not doing it. I am thinking to get rid of it. Too much hustle for nothing. At this time i think i would rather spend money for heap of good mature manure, would be more efficient for plants.

The factory is great and the instructions very clear, but dear god make sure to read as many blogs as possible before your worms actually come. I made so many rookie mistakes with maintaining the farm. Maintaining the proper environment is extremely hard and unique to each persons waste and home environment. Also, when putting down the newspaper below the dirt on the bottom-most, do not. Do not scrap any of that newspaper away when you are digging in your dirt. I scrapped some of it off by accident and then my worms were escaping through that hole (that is almost impossible to repair once everything is going) for the next several months. They will try to escape at any opportunity.I might try some sort of mesh on the bottom layer next time.

These worm farms are great, we now have five of them. We put one of these under our under-performing starfruit tree and the next year the tree put out an extraordinary amount of fruit. The next year it’s even better. Worm castings are an all natural fertilizer. My gf is our worm farmer at our 5-acre farm in central florida. She feeds them a variety of cardboard (recycling) and rotting fruit that falls off the trees on our farm. We started with one farm and are now up to five of them. We’re putting a farm under every one of our fruit trees because the trees love the worm-castings so much. We only bought worms once for the first farm, when the first farm became fully populated by reproducing then we spread the worms among two additional farms. Soon all three farms were loaded with worms so we added two more farms.

I built my own worm composter a few years before getting this one, i almost lost my worms twice because of over feeding and heat in the summer. I love this one because it looks nice enough to keep in doors. It does take training your worms to come up each level and i found using one on the bottom with a lot of news paper works the best and then have one that has the main compost, that way the old stuff drops on there and collects any compost dropping down before getting into the water reservoir. It makes it easy to collect when it just drops down and keeps worms out of the water as well. They tend to go for a swim every now and then. It happened on my other one too. I honestly love it though and think every one should have one of there in their home. I may get another one later.

I don’t have previous experience with vermicomposting, but wanted to give it a try. After a week of operation, i am really impressed with this kit. The book that comes with it is excellent — it is well organized, attractively illustrated, and as far as i can tell thus far, it is really comprehensive. The kit comes with a dvd, but i didn’t find it particularly useful, especially when compared with the high caliber of the book. The dvd has poor image quality, many misspelled words occurring often enough to be distracting, and nowhere near the detail found in the book. The kit is complete (except for worms, which need to be ordered separately), the quality of all the materials appears to be excellent, and the instructions make it easy to get up and running quickly. The book is good because it not only provides what you need to get started now, but it goes into long-term management of the worm farm, ensuring a successful outcome down the road.

I’ve had my wf 360 for a couple of months now, and it’s great. My 4 year old loves feeding the worms, and i like just checking up on them every couple of days to see how they’re doing. I never really liked worms, can’t say i ever touched one until i bought this, they grossed me out. Now i like to hold them in my hands and pet them. After i have my morning coffee, they get the grounds, so we literally have coffee together. They are seriously like having a pet. It’s hard to describe, kind of weird, but they have become a part of the family. We put this in our laundry room, and yes it smells fine, no stench. If you follow the directions (and the direction booklet provided is very helpful and full of information, did you know worms had 5 hearts????), the compost will actually smell good. All of the materials included are easy to put together, and i’ve had no worms escape yet.

Living in alaska, i haven’t had much luck with heat composters breaking down my compost quickly. I’m excited to try the worm factory. The directions were easy to follow and included starter materials that made it convenient to set up. It arrived quickly and in good shape.

I’ve been using the worm factory 360 for almost 2 years now and i’m very pleased with this compost bin. I enjoy gardening, and one of the principles of organic gardening of which i was well aware, but had been resisting to implement, was composting. I thought it would be too much work, too much hassle. But now i’ve been doing this for a while, and it’s a really low maintenance operation. About once or twice a week, i’ll put food into the bin and water. I empty out the drained water on my garden plants. About every 6-8 weeks now i have to harvest the compost. This is the only part that takes work – you have to rotate the bins so the bottom one is on the top and then rake the compost a bit and wait a few hours for the worms to all migrate back down. Then you have to set up a new bin with new bedding material. The worm factory works very well, although when you look inside there are always going to be tiny mites crawling over everything and even tiny snails, which i seem to have been stuck with since day one.

Worm Factory 360 WF360B Worm Composter, Black : I’m a beginner at worm farming. Started this worm condo about a month ago in my garage in florida. I purchased worm castings before i decided to start the worm farm, and my plants loved the compost tea i made so much that i decided to start making my own. There were items missing from this kit. When i contacted the seller, i was told to send them an email with my mailing address, and they would immediately send them to me. I never heard back from them. I read a few other reviews that said the same thing. . That the seller ignored their emails about missing parts. I don’t think this product is any better than similar looking worm farms, so if you see another brand for less, it’s probably as good if not better than this one. This one just happens to be more expensive because of the manufacturer.

This is the best wormery i’ve had the pleasure of working with. I had another worm tower, but it was a few years old and needed replacing. I built one myself, and wasn’t thrilled with the results, since i move the wormery in and out of schools for my job. So i buckled down and bought the worm factory, and i’m pleased. It’s sturdy and the worms seem to love it, and overall easy to move around because the feet come off easily. Perfect for a garden educator like myself who travels around with worms from time to time.

I have now had my worm factory for about a year, and absolutely love it. When taken care of appropriately, your little worms will turn junk mail and kitchen scraps into a luscious potting soil. Nothing makes me smile as much as shredding junk mail and feeding it to my little worm buddies. 🙂 ok, well, shredding the old, paid bills makes me smile more. As long as you keep the ratio of food vs. Paper in balance, there is no discernible odor. If you notice it has a slightly funky scent in that corner of the kitchen, go take a peek and see if you have been putting too much of one or the other item in there. I have gotten carried away with veggie scraps and had the balance tip a bit too far – and yes, it will begin to smell funny. Not garbage smell, but a funky kinda stale-beer-smell. My houseplants have absolutely love the worm dirt produced.

Are you like me who tried to compost your kitchen scraps the old fashion way which causes fruit flies, a deathly stench and last but not least gets frozen in the winter then this vermicomposting is the one for you. Well at least it’s the right match for me and my family. Purchased the worm factory on may 9th and it arrived on may 12th. I ordered 2000 red wrigglers from www. 95 on the same day the worm factory was purchased. The worms arrived 2 days after the worm factory was delivered. The worm factory comes with an instructional manual and dvd, a bottle of mineral rock dust, shredded card board, a small ziplock bag of coir, small ziplock bag of pumice, 4 trays and a kit (rake, scraper and a thermometer). It was easy to set up the first worm bin because the instructional manual was written in simple layman’s terms and step by step instructions. You only need to line the first worm bin with damp not dripping wet newspaper. The additional food trays added does not need to be lined. I am 2 weeks into setting up the worm factory and i am thrilled. The first tray is almost broken down completely only a few scraps of food remains which i didn’t cut up small enough and as a result they still need to be broken down more. I just added a 2nd food tray last week and used the rest of the coir, pumice, added damp shredded newspaper and some of the castings from the first tray and it was a success.

Started using this composter last spring and all through the summer. It has a huge capacity with the expandable bins (comes with plenty for a family of 4, and you can buy extras if you generate a lot of compost). The system is super easy to set up and even easier to maintain. It has a collection tray and spicket so you can collect the liquid run off – great for plant fertilizer (although they say you shouldn’t use that liquid as fertilizer for any veggies or plants that you will eventually eat – house plants only). System comes with everything you need to get started (minus the compost food and newspaper). Once it’s up and running theres not too much you need to do – it’s a self sustaining eco system. Just add foodit comes with a dvd and booklet with information on how to get started and keep it going. You do need to maintain the right balance of ‘greens’ (compost food) and ‘browns’ (things like cardboard and shredded newspaper/mail). But it’s easy to figure out: too dry, add more greens – too wet, add more browns. You can compost most organic material that isn’t cooked. No meat products, dairy, or citrus. Chop up onions and garlic – add the shells. Banana peels, apple cores, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea bags. It cuts down on the amount of garbage thats in your kitchen, and the garbage that’s left doesn’t have any smell because theres nothing organic thats rotting in it. Plus it makes great fertilizer if you grow your own veggies (use the compost, not the liquid run off). Unfortunately i did not have a place to keep this in the winter so needed to stop using through the cold. Next spring though all i need to do is add more worms and it’ll be ready to go. Great for novices and advanced composters alike.

I have had this worm factory for two weeks now and love it. I put 1200 worms in it that i also ordered from amazon and they are chowing away, making me mulch. This device came with very clear written instructions plus a video on how to set this up and i followed the directions and have had no issues whatsoever. This sits in my foyer and no one knows it’s a worm farm, until i show them – no smell, no mess. The worms seems super-happy and i am using up all my vegetable left-overs, rather than putting them in the landfill, and in return, i’m getting some awesome-looking ‘black gold’ mulch – can’t wait to use it in my garden. This is very easy to do, very low maintenance and i feel i am contributing to the environment in a small, but positive way.

I wasn’t sold on the idea when my wife said she wanted to start raising worms in the garage. But now, i love it (not touching them–that’s her job). As a writer, there is something immensely therapeutic about feeding the torn up drafts of your writing to a box of warms in the garage. And knowing that in a few months it will be soil that feeds the yard that you can walk in in bare feet. As a person, there is something satisfying about putting your food waste to good us. In our case, the worms have also presented an interesting food hierarchy. We, the humans eat what we want from the fridge. The waste, leftovers and scraps then go to our pet goats–who are surprisingly picky. What they don’t want goes to the chickens.

I had a home made worm farm and it worked but it was hard to keep the moisture at the required level. I ordered the worm factory 360 wf360b worm composter in black and it arrived in a couple of days – very prompt delivery. It took a few minutes to get it unpacked and set up. A few more minutes and i had my worms transferred from the home built to their new home and they were ready to start eating. It has been several months and the first bin is about full – time to add another layer. I read the other reviews and have an observation:some said the worm ladder or top were missing – mine were exactly where they were supposed to be – upside down in the bottom of the stand. I suspect some people didn’t check where the directions said they would be. I have my worm factory in a greenhouse where i can control the temperature – especially in winter when they need protection from freezing. Summer provides a little more of a challenge but i can still keep the unit below 80 so the worms are doing fine and consuming all of my shredded mail and garden waste.

For a new worm farmer – i definitely recommend paying the extra money to get the ‘accessories’ that are in this kit. I have a feeling that i’ll be eventually making my own bins – but for now i’m enjoying the process of falling in love with worms that this handy kit encourages. Right now it’s in our home (it’s winter) and i love the handy way of feeding them. They are so quiet, and low maintenance. A great thing for kids, even though i have none – i would definitely get this if i had kids, to teach them about taking care of our world. . Did you know that this world would have a critical garbage problem, and depleted soil issues, if it wasn’t for the tiniest of creatures such as worms?. One single worm can process 10 pounds of material every year – transforming garbage into something useful and nutritious. What’s very interesting along these lines, is that what goes into a worm, and then comes out the other end, are two different things.

It was my best ever mother’s day gift. We started with a half pound of worms locally and still are on the first bin. Our food waste is next to nonexistent – and that makes us happy since our city does not collect compostables. Setup is a breeze because everything is included. I wish i had bought more worms to start, but i think the local worm farm wanted me to to get the bin environment going before adding too many worms. The worms are happily multiplying and we have many babies and cocoonsi’ve had no trouble with flies or other pests. If you are having trouble, your bin is either too wet or you are feeding too much. Cover your bin with a few pages of newspaper and a couple inches of shredded paper and cardboard.

I bought this in november and it worked fine then i added another tray and it still work fine. Description says it can hold up to eight trays i have 6 trays on it – added gradually- and it worked fine for a short amount of time and then a bottom leg bent. I would like to get a replacement bottom – hopefully the company would take this one back but i don’t see any way to contact the company so i’m using the comment section hoping they see it. I live outside chicago and luckily we have some warm weather now so i can put the trays outside but that won’t last long. I don’t know why they say you can add 8 trays when six of them bent the bottom leg. So if you see this from the company please contact me. I would be glad to change this to a four star if i could get some assistance here.

I bought this item along with 2 pounds of red wigglers to start off my vermicomposting experiment. I followed the instructions exactly, even watching the included video. It is winter here in the midwest so i decided to keep the bin under a heating vent in my kitchen. While i did have a slight ammonia smell in the first two weeks, the problem was eliminated by simply adding more shredded paper. There has been no smell emanating from the unit since, even stooped over the bin i am unable to smell anything. Per the instructions i have not placed any dairy, meat or acidic fruits in the bin, and i have yet to see any insects anywhere. Maybe this is just because it is still relatively cold outside, but currently there are none. The worms have been steadily moving towards the top bin, and are currently migrating into a third bin after 5 weeks. I could be crazy, but they seem obviously annoyed when you crack the trays apart to investigate; they really do not like light. Overall the worms seem happy, my trash is being diverted from a landfill, and i will eventually stop paying (as much) money to a nursery for worm castings.

I’m a huge fan of the worm factory products. I own three bins, one is the original and two are the 360. While the 360 has a few silly whistles & bells that the original didn’t include (instructional dvd, a plastic rake my 3-year-old loves, a black thing called a ‘sprinkler’ that i haven’t figured out yet) it is worth the small additional investment for a few reasons:1. The 360 maxes out at eight trays because of its sturdier base. If you plan to grow your colony this is important. The lid on the 360 fits more securely and can hold trays while you are harvesting. I bought a meat thermometer for use with my original worm factory, then found the 360 comes with one. Very handy when one of your trays is overheating. They send you a generous quantity of pumice with the 360. This is great to sprinkle in the trays for moisture control and airflow. The spigot on the original isn’t slanted down like this one, so it’s tough to drain the leachate completely from the collection tray. The bottom tray sits up on risers to allow airflow in the leachate bin. This is a huge improvement over the original, where i had major issues with product quality once i reached maximum tray capacity.

Update: 5/23/15i have had this thing for 6 months now. I purchased 500 worms right after receiving. Half the worms died within a couple of days. Thinking the cold weather and slightly delayed shipping killed them. Uncle jim stated his company guaranteed quick shipment and live. When i contacted they just blew me off with excuses. The remaining worms slowly multiplied. I should have purchased local and started with 1000 worms. I have been feeding regularly with slightly aged veggie scraps and some newspaper. I added my second bin 2 months ago.

Had neglected to order worms so had to wait to try it out. Has been working just fine and i have been able to add trays and keep them full and the worms are quite productive and eat like horses. We have it out on the back porch under the eaves and discovered one morning that the raccoons had discovered it so now it is ‘locked’ every night with bungee cords. Despite the raccoon raid, the worms are still there and must have run for cover in time to avoid being eaten. All in all, a fun and productive way to handle kitchen garbage.

So far, the worms are absolutely thrilled with their new abode. It’s built well considering how lightweight it is. That’s a bonus for me as heavy lifting is not my favorite sport. The directions are permanently attached to the lid, which is great for those of us who need reminders on worm bin maintenance. The only insecurity that i have is the amount of food to give the worms. Some sources say 1/2 pound of food per day for 1 pound of worms, some say 1 pound of food per day, so i’m splitting it down the middle and giving them 3/4 pound a day. The bottom bin was filled to the top with food and dirt while we were on vacation (enthusiastic grandkids) so i added another bin and the worms instantly migrated to the second bin. I’m encouraged that i will have worm castings way sooner than expected.

There are things i like about this composter, but i really think they should try to redesign it so that it’s enclosed. It’s advertised as something you can keep in the house, but the fruit fly problem is an issue. I do have a solution for the fruit flies – i have modified a recipe for a fruitfly trap i got from friends a few years ago. I place a small jar containing a little balsamic vinegar diluted in white vinegar plus a couple of drops of dish soap in the corner of the top tray. I just wish it wasn’t necessary. I still have to be mindful of the fruit flies when i open the lid to put something in the bin, which doesn’t make it as useful as i’d like. I just don’t have thousands of fruit flies all over my kitchen anymore.

I received my worm factory today and it is just as advertized. The little booklet is very clear and detailed. I recommend getting the set with the booklet and the materials for getting your worm farm off to a good start. I think the pumice and rock dust are a great addition. Very necessary for the health of the worms. There was a glitch with my first order. I never recieved it and had to order another. I wasn’t happy about this, but amazon kept me informed and recommend a reorder and refund of the first worm factory 360. The squirm firm was easy to work with and let me know to contact amazon and informed me how to care for my worms until the replacement worm factory arrived.

Boardwalk 41QTWBBLA Soft-Sided Wastebasket : this was PERFECT in size and construction

Too tall to fit under my sink but other than that it’s as expected, a durable trash can.

Not as thick-robust as my original can, but it fits in the existing cabinet bin perfectly.

Works very well for our recyclables.

My company gives ofgice staff these tiny itty bitty trash cans, i make a lot of mistakes so i need a really big ass can to hide my mistakes, this was perfect in size and construction.

Very well made trash can, very sturdy and at great price, highly recommend.

Exactly what i was looking for.

Hard to give a five star review on a trashcan.

It’s a garbage can, what else can i say?.

  • this was PERFECT in size and construction
  • Perfect for camper
  • Great for recycling or paper waste

Boardwalk 41QTWBBLA Soft-Sided Wastebasket, 41 qt, Plastic, Black

Son needed for college great price worked out great with quick delivery.

Just what i needed could the perfect size to use for my recyclables.

It’s fine for keeping my dirty laundry in.

A big basket in which i throw old cans.

Kind of rubbery to the touch.

It’s perfect looks just like the picture.

It is bigger than i thought. Everything is good except its price.

It’s a big sturdy garbage pail. It does what a garbage pail should.

It is a trash can, it holds trash. I took off one star as the can is a bit lightweight. I wouldn’t put anything heavy or sharp in it. As a side note, and not reflected in rating, the third party vendor, universaldealsinc, makes you pay for shipping on returns.

Way to kill the environment.

This is exactly what it is described to be.

Light weight, tall and narrow.

Good unless a bag is needed –- fits loosely (unlike rubbermaid) and there are supports in the bottom that may puncture it (see ‘customer images’).

Bigger than i thought it would be.

Good trash can for the money. A lot larger than i thought. My son thinks it will be ok for his dorm room.

Sturdy ‘tal kitchen bag’ size wastebaskets that work great in my office and shop.

One of the bin, good, reasonable price and free shipping, must have it in my kitchen.

Excellent item, quick delivery.

Wakeman Portable Trash Bag Holder- Collapsible Trashcan : What ever happened to quality control?

I’ve actually been using this inside as a recycle bin. Nothing wrong with it except trying to get a full bag out means i’ve gotta take the front bar off. Not really meant for indoors anyway, so i can’t really complain.

Not as sturdy as i would have liked, but once there are some items (empty cans/bottles or garbage) in the attached garbage bags, they become more stable.

I liked this, and we used it for a recent outdoor party we had. The only thing i didn’t know was the green color would say ‘recycles’ on the lid. I thought i had a choice of blue or green, and i liked green. It didn’t say there was a label on top of lid saying which is for which. Description of the item needs improvement.

I had some difficulty getting the holder to stay together but after that works well. I did have a problem getting the bag out of the holder after it was full. There is an inner rim that holds the bag in place and sometimes that comes up with the lid. It’s made of pvc so is light weight and sturdy enough for recycling plastic bottles.

It seems like cheap plastic, but it holds the garbage bag well. We have it in our garage for parties and such. We even shut the garage door on it by accident. It broke of course, but we are still able to use it and it still holds the bag well. For that reason, i give it 5 stars.

I really like the product and works very well. I have put it in my kitchen for recycle garbage, so it is not mobile. Although we can fold the product, it takes time to assemble or dismantle the product. So, if you want to use it for picnic, you would need extra about 4-5 mins.

Loved it for my recycling bottles. It was easy to put together no need for tools. The holder stands straight and with good weight that it does not tip over during strong winds and rain. Plan to buy another one for my paper produces.

Works great, but you have to be careful putting the pieces together. They break if you insert them in the wrong end, but there is no way to tell which end is the wrong end until you try them. If you notice they are tight, try the other side.

Helps keep the campsite organized and packs down well to not take up too much space. Love the color options to differentiate.

Works as expected, except for the ‘frame’ that is supposed to hold the bag in place. It lifts along with the lid causing the bag to drop. I used an extra-large binder clip to hold the frame in place and now it’s fine. Knowing this easy fix, i would purchase again if needed.

I bought 2 of these for our annual 4th of july party and they worked out great. They are made out thin plastic so not very sturdy but they did the job of what we needed them for.

You really have 3 size/height options here. In the smallest, with one pole height, it fits a plastic grocery sack perfectly, 2 pole height works so great for wet laundry bags for cloth diapering. It disassembles and packs up nearly for travel, which i’ve done twice already. It’s nice to be able to bring my cloth diapers supplies on vacation to family house for 2 weeks, without looking like a crazy person bringing my own giant trash can lol. I also have one in the kitchen under the sink, and will be ordering far least one more for the recycle. I just love the adjustable size, you don’t get the with any other trash/recycle/or laundry hampers.

Bought for camping and really liked it. Love the lid as it keeps the bugs at bay. The only negative i have about it is that the tall kitchen bags do fit it but once they have any weight they pull off. I had to put an upside down pot under the bag to support the bag. I will in the future have full size trash bags to use with it.

I like these (have 2), but the best idea is to glue the parts permanently or it’s a hassle. One mistake is i glued the base upside down, which prevents the base of the bag to be supported. Be aware that the heavier the bag, the more likely the bag will be pulled off the retaining ring. High wind will blow them over too.

The idea behind this trash bag holder is great – but it is really flimsy, and the wind knocks it over very easily. I have since bought metal rods/stakes to hammer into the ground and then slide the poles over it. (i think next time i won’t put the base on at all – that just collects water and dirt when it rains, and with my stakes it doesn’t need it). This works pretty good – or at least it didn’t fall over in the last rain storm. I also need to either find taller bags or only use 2/3 the height of the legs, because the bags can fall out if it get too heavy.

We had a bag hanging fro a ail on the porch for can recycling. So i wanted something covered. This does the trick but it’s rather narrow profile only allows for about half the tall kitchen bag to get full. Wish it were just a big bigger in diameter to accommodate a full bag of beer and pop cans. But that said, it does keep the bees out.

Just what you need to bag returns in oregon since you can’t crush the cans to return.

Wakeman Portable Trash Bag Holder- Collapsible Trashcan for Garbage and Indoor/Outdoor Use Outdoors -Ideal for Camping Recycling and More (Blue) : Good for poop duty in the back yard. Better then just carrying around a bag. This thing adds structure and strength to get the job done.

Perfect for putting 5cent returns in to bring the cans back. We use one for cans and one for bottles.

Buy the other one for $4 more; you’ll be happier. You’ll need a bad to carry the pieces of this one in, whereas the other one stores within itself. I bought both to compare and gave this one away.
