simplehuman 46 litre dual compartment rectangular step can brushed stainless steel | plastic lid – I like this trash can overall

I was tired of having a separate bin for recyclables so i loved this idea. The can is a nice glossy metal that doesn’t show finger prints and is easy to wash. The trash bin is adequate size, but i do wish the recycle bin was just a tad larger. It comes with 10 bags for each can that fit perfectly. I use my regular trash can bags from costco and they fit fine. Product is a little pricey for a trash can, but it is quality and i love having the ugly recycling bin out of my kitchen.

Our city requires that we place compost items in a separate trash can, so this handy duo trash can helps us separate food trash (compost) from everything else. We use the smaller side for the compost type stuff. Even though it looks as it might not hold a lot of trash, we actually go about 5-6 days without having to take the trash out because it holds a lot.

I love all things simplehuman. We own several of their trash cans and a few soap dispensers, and i am always amazed at the simplicity and functionality of their products. We recently moved to an area that actually has weekly recycling collection, so i wanted to be able to have a nice contained place to put trash and recycling in the kitchen (instead of having our huge bulk bins in the side yard). This dual-compartment trash can fit the bill. We use the can as intended with trash on the left, recycling on the right. We’ve been using it for about two months now, and we love it. Like every other simplehuman product we own, this can is easy on the eyes and very durable. We also buy the fitted simplehuman trash bags (size h and v) and they fit really well. My only complaint is that i wish i could prop each plastic trash bin up so i could more easily put on and take off the trash bags. Every other simplehuman trash can i own has a little ridge inside the can that allows me to prop up the plastic bin. Here are the specifications for the simplehuman 46 litre dual compartment rectangular step can brushed stainless steel | plastic lid:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Recycle it: Neatly sort your trash and recyclables in this dual-bucket recycler It makes eco-friendliness very space efficient
  • Our strong steel pedal is engineered to last over 150,000 steps a” that’s more than 20 steps a day for 20 years
  • Our patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close
  • The lid stays open for as long as you like a” perfect for longer chores
  • Custom fit liners: simplehuman liners are tailored to perfectly fit our cans so they don’t slip and the bag stays completely hidden when the lid is closed
  • Thick double seams: Extra durable plastic and thick double seams prevent rips and tears
  • Convenient drawstring handles: Easy to lift, tie and carry

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

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

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Worth the price, but makes you question the direction of your life
  • High Quality And a Stylish Garbage Can
  • Excellent Trash Can! Good Value for High Quality Product

I put the time in doing my homework on spending this amount of money on a kitchen garbage can. After reading other reviews on cheaper models i decided to bite the bullet and go for it. It arrived yeasterday and i am impressed with the compact design and streamlined look. The lid opens and closes quietly and does not hit the wall. The only negative is the side for regular garbage is small but i always have more recycling than regular trash anyway. This can will last for years and it’s worth the extra $$.

I like this trash can overall. I have another simplehuman can that has lasted for many years and love it. However i wanted one with a recycling bin. I don’t understand why the manufacturers all make the recycle bin so small. You can barely fit a few bottles and a few cans in it. Other than that it is a great bin. The mechanism is smooth and it is a nice looking can.

Pros: garbage and recycling all under one lid, easy step to lift lid, switch to keep lid open for longer uses, looks nicecons: doesn’t hold smells completely in; difficult to get garbage can out when full as there’s only a finger indent on one side; recycling side is pretty tiny; recycling liners are made of plastic and are not recyclable, so have to leave liner in and empty recyclables out of it; definitely not fingerprint proof haha.

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

The garbage can was delivered in original product box only. It was beat up and actually open upon delivery. After reading some of the reviews, i expected the product to be dented. We live in a three story townhouse that makes recycling a hassle. We use the larger blue side for garbage and the smaller side for recycling (mostly cans and water bottles). I owned a simple human garbage can prior to this one that lasted almost 6 years. One thing i will miss from my previous version are the wheels. It was nice to move the garbage can to where i was cutting to easily dispose of waste without having to walk across the kitchen. I also wish it was a little bit larger. It is for those two reasons i have a 4/5 stars.

Love the red ‘hold the lid open’ button, and that the foot pedal opens the entire lid (i. , access both compartments simultaneously). Love not having to carry recyclables to the garage every time anymore. I’m a single male and the capacity (both sides) is adequate for 1 week’s stuff. The white ‘h’ liners are a really tight fit over the top of the larger compartment, so i’m still getting the hang of it. My old 13-gal trash bags from the grocery store are, like, 25% wider than the ‘h’ liners, and are do-able with difficulty, since the bins are a tight fit into the top of the shell. The blue ‘v’ liners are thinner than the white, but not unsatisfactorily so. My recyclables are primarily junk mail and plastic food containers- nothing sharp or particularly heavy. I think the blue ‘v’ liners are fine for recyclables.

Very nice trash can (and how weird is it to say that?. It’s a trash can for pete’s sake). Wanted something that could sit alongside our cabinets in the kitchen and not look ratty plus we recycle so this was a win-win. Yep, kinda pricey (the most i’ve ever paid for a trash can without a doubt) but i guess you get what you pay for. We’ve ‘flipped’ and are using the trash side as our recycling side (since we recycle more than we throw away) and even throwing the occasional gallon milk jug in there, we can go about a week before we have to empty it into our garage recycling can. I like the bags that are tailored to fit and when you do a price comparison, they aren’t that much different in price than glad drawstring bags so happy with those too.

It looks nice but it doesn’t fit as much garbage/recycling in it as i was hoping it would. Also, after a couple of weeks, the lid quit going down all of the way. I went to send it back but was too late. I now have to look into the 10 year warranty that it comes with in order to send it back. In hindsight, i should have just stuck with the simplehuman garbage can and not done a 2-in-1 recycle/garbage can. The amount of garbage and recycle that each container holds is not worth the price to me.

Well, we hesitated for weeks before dropping $150 bucks on a kitchen trachcan but have to say so far it seems worth it. Other less expensive similars had various complaints and less than stellar reviews. We replaced one of those automatics with sensor, that just didn’t hold up well after about a year. This one looks like it will last a loooong time. Arrived with no dents or scuffs. Wipes off fingerprints easily. The double bins are just the right size to hold enough recycle and trash to take out once a week. Will probably end up using larger bin for recyclables since each side can be emptied separately and we don’t like to keep trash in the house more than a few days.

I use the large side for recycling and the small side for trash. It is actually disturbing to visualize how much that i was previously throwing in the trash that could have been recycled. I saw these everywhere in europe but not so much in the usa. My housekeeper is german and she also recognized it only from europe. This is beautiful in my kitchen and makes it so much easier to recycle so many things. I highly recommend this item.

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

Perfect size that i was looking for. The other receptacles had too large of containers for both refuse and recycle. I was in search for months both in store and online as i am just that particular. Finally, i found this gem that had a decent sized refuse container (30l) and a smaller recycling bin (16l) totaling 46l combined sized. It’s a bit pricey i must say, however it looks great in the kitchen and is exactly what i was in search for.

This is exactly what i was looking for. This can is compact, very functional, and very well built. It looks 1000 times better than my old can and doesn’t scoot around on my laminate floors and mark up my wall like the old one. It is definitely worth every penny. The only problem is an existential one. I just spent $150 on a trash can and was genuinely excited when it was delivered to my door. What happened to the young man that spent his dollars on booze, trendy clothes, and video games?. Replaced by a man that reads reviews on trash cans online, comparing warranties and features. Then there is the giddy excitement when his expensive waste receptacle finally arrives, punctuated by the time spent writing another review for some poor soul like me. Some poor soul with a very nice trash can.

I had to use the larger side for recyclables and the smaller side for trash. I would have like to have one with same size on each side so that i could use the same bags. I ordered bags and the one or smaller one cane in blue for recyclable that i use for trash. I would like to have a choice of what color bag i could order for all if my other simplehuman trash cans that i have i love the can but i have to order 4 different size bags and some are trash and others are recycle that only come in white. I have to put sticky notes on the trash cans when my house keeper comes in to remind them of the ones that is trash or recycle.

I love my simplehuman 46 liter kitchen garbage/recycling can. It’s taking a bit of getting used to using a smaller garbage area that i’m used to, but having a place all for those recycleables makes up for it. Not having a line of recyclables on the counter or a bag of them to go out to the garage is nice. I have a huge box of 15 gal kitchen garbage bags that i will continue to use, but when they are gone, i will purchase the ones that fit in this can. There is a lot of wasted space left in the bags when it’s pulled out of the can, so i continue to use it outside of the garbage can until full. The can fits nicely under my kitchen island. When i step on the lid release, the top comes up gently and hits the underside of the counter. It is only an issue when i have to remove the bags and the lid needs to come all the way up hitting the underside of the counter. When i change the bags, i have to slide slide the can out from under the counter. I have a hardwood floor, so i will be putting felt pads on the bottom to prevent scratching the floor.

This is made very well and looks great in the kitchen. The soft shut of the lid is my favorite aspect. They are wayyyyy too expensive.

Primode 100% Compostable Bags : Strong and stretchy

These are strong, stretchy biodegradable bags that do the job. Prior brand we used had a problem with tearing. Our city added collection of food scraps recently so we use 3-5 of these per week.

Great bags, very high quality. This is something you really don’t want to fail and these fell very strong and give no impression that they might rip or leak.

The product arrived promptly in great condition. The bags are perfect for the little garbage bins we leave in the bathrooms. They are thick enough that they don’t rip too easily. I was happy to order compostable bags to eliminate some of our waste.The container boxes are easy to tuck in the cabinet out of the way.

Thicker than most compostable bags so less likely to tear.

  • Bags Work Great!
  • These work fine for me
  • Securely fits the rim of a 3.5 gallon (small) trash can

Primode 100% Compostable Bags, 3 Gallon Food Scraps Yard Waste Bags, Extra Thick 0.71 Mil. ASTMD6400 Biodegradable Compost Bags Small Kitchen Trash Bags, Certified By BPI And VINCOTTE, (100)

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • THREE GALLON SIZE: Each of our compost bags has a capacity of 3 gallons!
  • 100% COMPOSTABLE: The food waste bags are fully compostable.
  • BPI-CERTIFIED: Our compostable bags meet BPI requirements for safety standards.
  • STRONG & DURABLE: The compost trash bags are much tougher than others which tear and fray easily.
  • EASY TO USE: The composting bags are easy to use and just the right size, which is why they are recommended for those who live in quaint town homes or small flats.

I just started putting food leftovers-food covered paper in the compost barrel. Always just put them in the regular trash. Guilt finally won out and i ordered the green barrel from the trash company. I live in a condo so have little outside leaves, etc. I was afraid the food scraps would smell by the end of the week and it’d be very messy. These bags have worked perfectly. They’re the right size to fit in a covered small bucket under my sink. Surprisingly, there is no smell. The bags hold quite a lot and still have enough at the top to fold over or twist before depositing in the barrel.

These bags work well in my little kitchen garbage can, not my compost can, my garbage can. I take the garbage out every other day – i don’t make a lot of garbage. I don’t know anything about how they compost, however.

I have a little compost container in the sink and empty it into these bags right before tossing them into the compost bin outside. It feels really flimsy, like it’ll break at any second, but (crossing fingers) bags have not broken yet during transport. Easy to dispense and tear off.

I really like these bags: first of all, the prize is excellent. You can’t find anything like it at the local supermarkets. The bags are very strong of very good quality and were delivered on time.

Great for composting, we fill a bag after dinner and/or lunch and can place in the outside bin immediately. Great size so we don’t have to keep rotting items inside.

They are exactly what i expected. I live in the country, so i toss biodegradable waste in the fence line, or i take it to the farm so it goes out in the manure spreader. I wanted a bag that would hold my garbage until i can dispose of it properly. Your compostable bags are not as flimsy as some i bought in the past.

A little more comfortable to use than the 2. 5 gallon, this is similar in size to the old plastic grocery bag. Very strong, and very inexpensive- i use them for scooping cat litter, lunch bags, whatever- very superior.

Really nice bags – sturdier than other similar bags i’ve bought in the past and better price too. They also do not seem to have the issue of sticking together as some other bags i’ve tried before have done.

People have complained that the bags fall apart from moisture. Correct that problem by throwing a paper towel or napkin in the bottom and adding another occasionally.

Good so far, nyc just recently handed out brown bins for food scraps and all. Just have issues with a bit of leaking and smells from the mixed up food. Been using soiled paper towels to help absorb some moisture. A good buy plus won’t run out anytime soon.

Primode 3 gallon bags fit perfectly in the “simple human” 10l step can which we had been using with grocery bags with handles. Bags are big enough to flap over the edge of the removable inner bucket so they don’t slip down. So far the bags have held up even with wet cooking and table scraps and coffee grounds. They do feel wet on the outside when we remove them (every 3-4 days), but that’s just from condensation. We continue to use a plastic bag as a can liner, just in case, but haven’t had to remove it, yet. Our nyc apartment building is now composting, so we have to take the bag on a little journey in the elevator down to the ground floor and through the service area to the compost bins, but so far we’ve made it bag intact. Box is as compact as can be expected, and bags pull out without incident.

These bags are just as advertised. The thickness works well and they are easy to open.

Well, i don’t really know what to say about compost bags, but the supplier asked me very nicely to review them, so here goes. The box has a nice easy access opening. The bags seem to be appropriately strong and not leaky (compostable bags don’t seem entirely waterproof, unlike the nasty non-compostable bags). So i will order these again & i recommend them.

I use them for a spring loaded pooper scooper, fits around it perfectly.

I love this size of bag for my compost. I juice a lot and the weight of the compost is heavy. This size allows me to have a good enough amount of space to tie off. I use with a breville juice as well as my compost container in the kitchen. Will add to my favorites list.

Inexpensive, but they allow me to carry rotting food leftovers down to the building’s compost bin without making a mess along the way. At the bin, this bag goes in along with the outer paper bag i use — no muss no fuss.

Fit perfectly in my container. Slightly thicker then any other compost bags i’ve found, and it makes a difference. Far fewer burst or torn bags. Still happens, just less frequent.

The bags arrived on time and as ordered. They were ordered specifically because they are compostable – for my small waste baskets in the house. I am pleased to say they are very strong, as well as quite expandable. They are the perfect size and strength for these trash buckets, and the quality is much better than the quality of the bags that i used to use. I love them and highly recommend them.

Joseph Joseph 30002 Intelligent Waste Totem Kitchen Trash Can and Recycle Bin Unit, I was looking for a garbage can for easy sorting for recycling vs

I was looking for a garbage can for easy sorting for recycling vs. This does it, and so stylishly. Most other units for sorting are way too large in terms of space it takes in a kitchen. This unit is pretty compact yet holds quite a bit. Already i’m noticing that i recycle most items that i was previously just throwing in the trash. I also love the little basket and place it on the counter during food prep. At first i was like – the cost of this can is ridiculous. But after looking around, it’s actually about the same price as many of the stainless steel brands that are more stylish- like- simple human. The extra cost compared to other brands i think is worth it.

This trash can is everything i was looking for in terms of making trash sorting easier and all in one unit. Good luck training your family not to screw up your new sorting procedure though. I put cans and bottles in the bottom drawer. It’s easily lined with paper bags from the grocery store, i just trim the top couple of inches off. Then i can throw the entire thing into the big recycling bin for trash day. The larger trash section works just great with my usual kitchen bags. The compost bin fits the compost bags i had already been using, so you don’t have to buy theirs. At first it seemed like i was going to have to empty this thing constantly because the trash section is smaller than my old can. It turns out i actually only have to empty it once a week now since we are composting , most paper and cardboard and produce trash gets composted. So there’s not much actual waste left when everything else gets sorted out.

Lid lock is broken (see pic). I bought this unit through amazon in september, 2016 so i’m aware it’s already out of guarantee. I am willing to pay for the replacement part but my request on the manufacturer’s website has gone unanswered for 3 months. I like the unit very much but there’s no need to buy a new one just to fix its smallest/weakest part.

Comments from buyers

“But as I was researching trashcans turns out they are all pretty pricy. I was stuffing all my recycling into , Good compact waste solution; has shipping and manufacturing issues, Item damaged multiple times”

This trashcan had to satisfy three adults (my mother, my husband, and me). And it did the impossible: it made everyone happy. Initially, i thought the little compost bin would be an annoyance but it’s become my favorite kitchen helper and sits neatly on the countertop awaiting prep and table scraps. My only complaints are that the stainless steel lid fingerprints and the compost bags are difficult to find. Other than that, it’s perfect.

I don’t always read product descriptions carefully and thought this was a hard high quality plastic version, even if a bit pricey but i had a gift card. So i was shocked when the very heavy box arrived. The entire thing is a heavy graphite colored metal. I didn’t buy the special garbage bags they recommend and my standard 13 gallon glad force flex drawstring garbage bags fit fine and is snug at the top so it won’t slip or show when the lid is closed. The interior compost feature i use for ‘wet garbage’ (food remnants or anything smelly) and i keep it on my countertop while cooking (instead of rachael ray’s famous garbage bowl). I can use a grocery bag to line it and it fits well though not perfect. You don’t need a bag because it washes easy, but i prefer a bag. The recycling part is about the size of a file drawer. It won’t hold as much as a standard recycling tote but it does hold a fair bit. It is vey tall – almost as high as my countertop (which are rather high).

While this three compartment trash can is perfect for what we need, it did arrive with a dent on the side. Unfortunately for us, it is on the side that is visible. Since we need more space for recycling and less for trash, we decided to use the bottom drawer for trash and the top for recycling. If you are ok with the can possibly being dented (and at this price point, most people aren’t) then i would recommend it.

Never thought i would use love and trash can in the same sentence, however i have to. It is so nice to have it all in one clean space. I was really on the fence since i have never spent this on a trash can before but i’m glad i did it.

I have limited space in my kitchen to fit both a recycling bin and reg trash and this fit perfect. Plus the composting bin is a fabulous lil feature.

Absolutely love this garbage / recycle can. . With the exception that the filter in the lid keeps falling out and i keep finding it mixed in with the garbage.

I really wanted to like this item. There were a few things i didn’t like about it, however. Everything worked as described, and there were no real problems with it. But i didn’t like having to use two hands to throw something away every time–one to open and close the lid, the other to hold the trash and throw it away. I also simply don’t like touching the trash can lid–too germy while i’m cooking. I really liked the composting compartment and that you can lift it out and set it on the counter while you’re cooking, but while nesting in the trash can it did choke off the opening for the place where you throw the trash. I loved the built in recycle bin–this is the main reason i wanted it. But i throw so many bits and pieces of recycling away throughout the day, stooping over to roll the recycle bin in and out each time was too much of a chore. Finally, i had a problem with the smell. When you open the trash can it stinks 🙁 for people living in an apartment where it is more of a hassle to take the trash out, this would probably be a great solution.

Arrived brokent but my husband said he could fix it.

The first one arrived with large denting in the front, due to both amazon’s poor packaging but also the manufacturer packaging, which is utterly lacking on the sides. It’s probably not intended for individual shipping but rather purchases at a bricks & mortar retailer. Ship-back was easy and the replacement arrived quickly, but after two weeks of normal use, the large press-button that opens the lid simply fell off. It’s stainless steel that is (poorly) glued to plastic underneath. It would not be hard to glue back on, but then again, i paid $240 () for this trash can and i expect more for the money i spent. I applaud the industrial design of this product: it functions well and looks good. I’m going to try a third replacement, and it’s nice that there is a 10 year warranty. But overall, this product feels overpriced given the construction. If you’re expecting a handcrafted, artisan, made-in-small-batches-with-love trash solution, looks elsewhere; this is just another thing made in china. If there were other options on the market — and i suspect there will be more soon — i would look at those instead.

This has been the best purchase we have made in a long time. The garbage part hold more then our regular kitchen garbage can. The recluciling part is also good sized. We just love the look and it completes our kitchen. Will defiantly recommend this to anyone ? we are so happy.

Bottom drawer does not line up perfectly. Other than that, it is a great trash can.

Never thought i would love a trash can, but i do. For a city apartment, this is a dream. Holds a lot of trash and recycling in a compact package and truly smudge/fingerprint proof.

Was embarrassed to spend this much ona trash receptacle, it is perfect for my needs. We seaoarate yard waste+ food, recycling, compost and just plain trash. Well constructed, easy to clean. Standard kitchen trash bags fit in upper trash compartment.

I love how this trash bin allows me to organize everything. The bins are spacious & i love the color. The bottom drawer doesn’t lineup perfectly but it is a minor flaw.

Looks great but it came with a dent. Not sure it’s worth the price but once i figure out where it will go will probably change my mind.

It holds everything and logically sorts four ways perfectly. In my community we have to keep the paper separated from the plastic. And we keep compost and garbage too. So this is the perfect solution for the way we need to keep our trash. Sorting it as we toss it, prevents the need to stand and sort on trash night. I love the colors and the style of the waste totem. I had intended on putting it in my pantry but it is so cool looking that i have it at the end of the kitchen counter.

This is a fantastic all-in-1 trash unit that makes great use of space. I got the biggest one, and wish there was one just a tad larger so i don’t have to empty the recycling so often. The body is nice gray-painted metal, the top is stainless steel, and a bit of green and gray plastic round it out. The recycled bin at the bottom is on wheels and easily comes out/in of the unit. The best part (compared to my old trash can) is that you can leave the top open while preparing meals and put things into either the compost bucket or regular trash easily without opening the can again and again. It comes with some specially sized bags which, which they hope you’ll reorder, which is why i gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I’ll surely substituted more reasonably prices bags.

Expensive yes but if you are composting and recycling it a charm to get it alltogether and out of site. Trash area isn’t big but the can would be huge if it were larger.

It was heavier and sturdier than i thought. All metal outside and the plastic inside is very sturdy, thicker than my current plastic kitchen garbage can. I was disappointed that amazon shipped the wrong color, but i understood why. I finally found the color on the very bottom of the joseph joseph box along with a bar code. I’m still deciding whether to keep it or exchange it. The stone color is not bad, just not what i ordered. I’m really looking forward to using this. I currently have three containers: garbage, compost (to go out to pile) and recycle.

Was skeptical about the cost/design value of this trash can – but after 6 months+ of using it i have to say it was a great purchase. Having the top a foot higher than our last trash can, it’s just easier to deal with loading and pulling out the garbage. The recycling bin on the bottom holds more than i expected, and the wheels on the bottom make it easier to pull and and carry the can to our household recycle cans outside. Love the design and functionality of this product and would recommend it to all – it’s worth the $$.

I wasn’t sure i wanted to spent $200+ on a kitchen garbage can, but i’ve had this a year now and it is really great. Works perfectly for the amount of trash and recyclables that we have in our household. We usually put a paper towel down in the compost bin which prevents stuff from sticking to the bottom. That works well so we don’t need to buy compost bin liners.

Rubbermaid Large Rectangle Wastebasket 36 Quart – Ok, but now cheaply made

Has two different dimensions listed so i wasn’t sure which dimensions were correct, the second set is closer. This traditional wastebasket is durable and lightweight. With an extra-tough rim and strong sides, it will stand up to years of daily use.

Completely satisfied, the last set lasted 10 years.

Worked perfect for my 2 can pull out drawer. Here are the specifications for the Rubbermaid Large Rectangle Wastebasket 36 Quart:

Durable, well made, easy to clean.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Replacements!!
  • they fit perfectly into the preconstructed receptacles and are easy to put trashcan bags around
  • Ok, but now cheaply made

Perfect fit for our cabinet.

Replaced an old one with this.

I purchased more than six different size trashcans for an under the counter, sliding trash receptacle. With the purchase of these, i found a set that fit perfectly. While i don’t consider these to be an odd size, they fit perfectly into the preconstructed receptacles and are easy to put trashcan bags around.

I just replaced two rubbermaid kitchen trash cans that go in the trash / recycle pullout drawer in my kitchen. I found a 4-digit number (2806) stamped on the bottom of the old ones, searched amazon for ‘rubbermaid 2806’ and voila. These were the exact model # of those originals we had when we built our house 10 years ago so i was happy to find the new ones. These are even better since they sit a little higher than the old ones which makes it easier to pull them up out of the drawer. They even feel a bit sturdier at the rim than the old ones do which is why i had to buy these new ones. The old ones ripped at the corners from the years of pulling them in and out of the drawers.

Exact fit for our slide-out cabinet at good price delivered quickly.

Exactly as described – just like my old ones.

Looked at all local stores and then found it on amazon.

Very happy with these, mine badly needed replacing, they were part of our built in cabinets so i was a bit concerned with the size. They are ever so slightly wider but work well.

These were exactly the size i needed and couldn’t find them elsewhere.

Rubbermaid wastebaskets are the most durable. The last ones of this approximate size i bought was nearly twenty years ago.

I bought these to replace the same items that have been used for holding dirty clothes in a pull-out laundry hamper – the original ones still had the labels, so figuring out the model # was a snapalas, the reason for only 3 stars is that they are definitely ‘cheaper’. When picking them up, the ‘handles’ on the sides of the top rim bend rather than support. Maybe they will last as long, but i wouldn’t bet a whole lot on it.

Arrived quickly and fit perfectly. These are replacement bins and seem pretty sturdy.

This is a really great wastebasket.

They are sturdy and i use them in my basement and garage.

Perfect for tall kitchen bags. I use for recycling paper products. Holds about a week and a half worth of junk mail and catalogs.

Had trouble finding this size which holds a 13 gallon bag.

It is a good size so i don’t have to empty it as often. Would have been better if it came in a more decorative color.

So good i bought a second one.

Suncast Commercial TCNLID03BK Slim Trash Can – Quality product!

It’s affordable and matched the side of my fridge perfectly. The swing lid sometimes gets stuck down which is really annoying, but overall a decent product.

Works well and is heavy duty, should last for many years.

Suncast commercial tcnlid01bk slim trash can, double flip lid, black.

  • Excellent performance and function; bumpers recommended
  • These are worth the price!
  • Quality product!

Despite the price, it is exactly the right companion piece to the suncast line of commercial slim trash cans. If you get one of those, you really should also spring the extra 30 or so to get this as well; it is certainly worth it.

Bought one of these trashcans for use in my kitchen and chose this lid style. It’s wonderful, and does a fantastic job keeping odors in the trash can. When the lid closes, the clatter of plastic hitting plastic was a bit much. I bought some small felt bumpers softtouch self-stick 3/8′ furniture felt pads value pack for hard surfaces (84 piece) – oatmeal, round and installed four of them on the inside of the lid where the doors hit. Sound is now muffled and the color matches, too2. Very infrequently, one of the doors gets stuck open. It only takes a moment to give it a little nudge and it pops closed, but it does happen sometimes. Overall, i’m very happy with the function and performance of this lid.

WC Redmon mon Culture 65-Gallon Compost Bin : The unit went together with great ease. From the opening of the box to

This compost bin does exactly what it is intended to and holds more than enough for my small household. It was easy to put together, only taking me about 10-15 minutes. All of the pieces fit together well. The stakes it has on the bottom are not very long so it doesn’t get securely anchored into the ground. I use two hands to take off the lid, which snaps on tightly, so as not to pull it up off the ground and let the compost out. I have mine located behind my shed so it doesn’t get exposure to high winds, so i haven’t had any issues with it blowing over or moving around. I like that it has the little doors on the bottom so that you can access the ready compost without having to dig to the bottom and lift it out through the top. Overall, i am completely satisfied with this product, especially for the price in comparison to many other compost bins.

The bin was easy to put together and pretty sturdy. Never bought a bin before and looked a lot locally and online. Most were much more expensive than i wanted to pay or had bad reviews. Our garden remnants and some leaves are inside. Will be interested to see what it looks like next spring.

There is another bin of a similar size for sale on amazon for about twice the price, it’s called the soil saver. I have one of each, and comparing them, i find the soil saver is of slightly better quality, but this bin is awesome too. If you are on a budget, you should go for this one. I advocate having two bins, however, so that one batch can decompose without further scraps being added, while the other bin can be used for day to day waste accumulation.

I was able to get my first batch of compost for my garden. Reasonably sturdy and inconspicuous.

Redmon Green Culture 65-Gallon Compost Bin

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • High Impact Plastic With Uv Protectant
  • Imported
  • Rugged, weather-resistant plastic resin
  • 65 gallons 8.6 cubic feet
  • Convenient lift-off lid for easy access
  • Ventilation holes for proper composting
  • 4 door access

Very easy to assemble and, so far, seems very sturdy. I previously used a different brand that required more assembly, but that model didn’t last more than a couple of seasons, so i hope this one will last. I did put a few thin rods inside the corners to make sure it stayed down in stiff winds (when low on compost). The little tabs on the bottom seem “pointless” (pun intended).

We recently decided to try our hands at composting. Now i have never composted before so i’m not a pro and really have no idea what i’m doing lol but i know when the time comes to use the compost as fertilizer for our fruit trees and the garden we will be planting next season we a re going to be so happy with the results. This bin is super easy to put together ( i did it with my 12 year old son) and light weight and easy to move into place once assembled. It is also very easy to access to add waste to and for my son to mix it up. I would recommend this to anyone who is new to composting and those who are seasoned professionals. Hope my review helps a few of you make your decision.

Set up was easy, and it fits nicely in the corner of our yard. Of course, exactly one screw was missing, so we just had to do without. Due to where we had to place it, it’s not quite closed on the bottom so just beware in case you need that.

Received the bin very quickly. I wondered after i had ordered it i could assemble it (i’m 80 years old) but it was a breeze. Think it took less than 30 minutes and was light enough to carry to the place i wanted it.

Perfect size for the side of the kitchen door. Good color and ventilation slits. It will not open by the apparent handles (flanges) on two sides. It only opens by lifting it on the “non-handle” sides. Not too great on the finger nails. I’ll work on correcting the design engineer’s troublesome opening maneuvers with some sort of handle attached to, maybe, a corner?.

Easy to put together, sturdy. I added a pull handle from old cabinet to center of the lid to make picking it up easier. Large opening top makes easy for large amounts of plants and leaves and debris. I have 2 different types of composters to allow one to “cook” while the other is in use. I’m sure it’s going to be a great composter. I usually just pick them up and move them rather than use the little doors this one has an open bottom perfect for moving after a year or so.

Not sure what the deal is here. I bought one for my father and his seems to work great. Material decomposes pretty quickly. On the other hand, mine does not seem to decompose that well at all. Maybe his in a better area of his yard where it warms up better?. It is easy to assemble, has conveniant doors at the bottom to access mulch, vents for air and a removeable lid. I have not had any problem with animals getting into it or blowing over. I would probably buy it again but i need to figure out what i am doing wrong for it to decompose so slowly.

For the price, this is one of the better composting bins i have found. The lid snaps in place on two sides which keeps it from blowing off or getting pulled off by critters. The plastic is not as thick as i expected, but it’s still quite sturdy when assembled. I went ahead and used some extra washers i had with the screws just to distribute the pressure and make sure the plastic didn’t break around the screw holes. I got a rebate from the city for installing and using this bin which made it free in the end. I just started composting in january and it’s amazing how much less trash we have now.

The cost was good, and it came with helpful composting instructions, but the spikes on the bottom that are meant to anchor it into the ground don’t work well at all. We are going to need to find another way to anchor it, as i have it half full of composting materials, and every time i take the lid off, the whole thing almost lifts up.

I bought this to replace an expensive composter that spins. It finally rusted apart and collapsed in a heap. This one won’t rust and fall apart and cost about a quarter the price. It holds a lot of material too so i think it’s a good replacement. It takes longer as you can’t easily move the material around but i’m in no hurry. Mainly use it to dump kitchen waste.

It is a little flimsy overall, but it works. I have not gone through a full year with it so next spring will be the real test as to its effectiveness. As far as the little tabs that dig into the ground, yes, they are small. However, given the volume of organic material i put into it already, i am not concerned about it falling over. The unit went together with great ease. From the opening of the box to completion was probably 15 minutes, including the reading of the instructions. As far as construction, it is basically a plastic box with enough holes to assist in the decomposition of what you put into it. There are little doors at the bottom so you can dig out the older compost. If you have this in a windy area, it might be prudent to secure the top a bit. The top though could blow off but does snap into place as well.

This unit was the most inexpensive composter i could find on amazon. I’m fairly favorably impressed with it so far. Assembly was easy and straight forward. I put a big rock on the lid after i once failed to snap it down tight and a gust of wind blew it into the yard. Since then, the rock reminds me to check and be sure it is fully snapped in place and keeps it from possible “blowing away” if the short plastic ground spikes prove inadequate in a gust.

Box arrived with three holes through which most of the nuts and bolts escaped, and no instructions for assembly, so. Update: amazon sent a replacement asap that arrived intact, and which was easy to assemble. I’m a bit worried about it being rather thin. I’ve had this style before and the other one was much thicker and sturdier, and even that one sort of warped outward at stress points due to the weight of material. The access doors are what sets this style above others.

This is a great compost bin. First time composting, didn’t want to invest in a tumbler composter so this fit the bill. Put it in the back corner of my fenced yard so don’t have a problem with wind blowing it over. Put a brick on top of the lid and so far no critters digging under or knocking the lid off. One warning if you’re a klutz like me. I frequently cut my finger on the plastic edge at the top when i stir up the composting material. After cutting my left index finger probably about a half dozen times, i think i’ve learned my lesson and will start wearing gardening gloves when i turn over the material.

The lid isn’t perfect, a raccoon could easily get in. But we don’t have raccoons in the hawaii so it’s all good 😉 the build is a bit thinner than others i have, however there is more hardware holding this together to make it strong and the plastic is more impact resistant so as a whole this is a better package i feel :).

This composter is designed to go on the ground and he ground becomes the bottom. The problem is as it arrives the tiny tabs will not hold it securely. Any animal, or even a breeze will knock it over. I bolted about 6 inches of wood to the tabs all the way round and then buried them. I also added a couple of shock cords at the top to make sure the lid stays on. It is now very secure and works well.

I was looking for a composter that i could put table waste in so our dogs and cats couldn’t get to it. This one seems a little flimsy. In fact, one of the points for sticking it in the ground was broken off in the box. Be careful when putting it together as the bolts are plastic and it takes very little to strip them. It was cheap enough but after seeing it, i think you get what you pay for.

Went together well, bolts didn’t seem to tighten and holes seemed too big, but it works. Make sure you level out the ground so the lid stays on properly.

Estilo Stainless Steel Compost Pail, Great for the kitchen.

I have needed something like this for a long long time. It looks nice sitting on the counter too. No my little fruit flies is a huge plus.

Handy in the kitchen and takes up little counter space.

Updated review: i took a chance and ordered a replacement since the first one was damaged on delivery. The replacement arrived next day (thank you amazon) and was undamaged. On this one, the lid could be properly & easily used. Both the charcoal filter and the bonus spare filter were stored inside the filter holder, although it seems odd (and a bit cheap) that while the filter is round and matches the circumference of the lid, the spare filter was just a small square shape. Having both filters the full round size would’ve earned 5 stars. I’ve used the container now for a couple of weeks and love it. The size is much larger than my old one which means fewer trips to the outside compost to empty it. What i like most about this container is the filtered ventilation. My old container was just a stainless bin with a tight fitting lid. The vegetable trimmings that went in would start anaerobic decomposition, getting slimy, moldy and smelly after just a few days.

Comments from buyers

“Absolutely love this, I’m pretty terrible about taking my compost out when I should, Kind of disappointed, but it is a huge compost pail and “

I have been impressed with this quality is top notch. I can go a week or more before taking it to the flower bed. No odor and looks great on the cabinet.

Larger than expect but perfect. We have been composting for a number of years and we were using old plastic coffee containers. This looks great on my kitchen counter and holds enough so we are running back and forth to the compost. The only improvement i would like to see made, is an easy way of putting in the charcoal filters. We haven’t had to change them yet, but i have read the other reviews and the questions about the product and it seems a little weird. I am sure i will figure it out.

I like it, can’t say i am crazy about it, for the simple reason that i can’t see the need for the holes, it isn’t that big that you won’t have to empty it almost daily, so there is no smell developing. Eventually you need to buy new filters to block out those holes and that’s just another thing to think about and buy.

Very happy with this purchase. The container is a great size and doesn’t look out of place on a kitchen counter. The lid fits well and the shape of the container makes removing the contents easy. We use compostable bags with the container and could’t be happier.

Got a for a little less than the other identical bins out there. Looks good and matched the kitchen decor. A little bigger than i thought but i found a good spot for it nonetheless.

This is exactly what i was looking for as a counter top composter. Large enough to hold quite a bit of refuse, but not so large as to overwhelm the kitchen counter. The in-lid carbon filter is great, too.

I’m impressed with how nice this compost bucket is. Good quality stainless steel, fairly heavy. Matches stainless kitchen appliances well. Very pleased, highly recommend this.

A great addition to your kitchen that blends in with sinks and appliances.

Came with scratches and only one filter. Kind of disappointed, but it is a huge compost pail and is in fact stainless steel. If it came new (not scratched) with two filters as described, i’d say five stars.

Attractive sitting on my counter; big enough to hold a lot of scraps but not so big as to be obtrusive. Contains all odors very well.

Way easy to clean, holds a lot. Keeps the smell out of the kitchen. Handle is stable and long enough for carrying to the outside compost pile.

This is a very nice product. The steel is a good weight and it is nice looking. It is a good size for me because i don’t have to empty it a lot since it’s just me. I am curious how well the filters will work in the heat of the summer, though.This year, the fruit flies were crazy in my kitchen without the compost.

Have had this for a few weeks now, so far, so good. I had a ceramic one previously with an i smooth interior which would catch food constantly and became a breeding ground for fruit flies no matter how many times i washed it. Thankfully this looks like it will avoid that problem. Nice color, doesn’t get fingerprints.

This temp mulch container is exactly what we were looking for. It is handy and good looking to find its place on the kitchen counter. The lid with charcoal filters eliminate the smell of the mulch that hasn’t been transferred to the large mulch pile/container and the gnats are gone.

Although i do not use it for composting, i absolutely love this item because i do not normally put out a large amount of waste so the larger trash cans do not work for the household. This is a great addition to the kitchen.

My compsting wife could not be happier. Looks much better on our counter, too, than the old plastic one. Charcoal filter really works well, too.

Hey, it’s a stainless steel bucket. Actually, the odor filter does work — it sits in the counter til it’s full and then it’s carried out, no issues with odor.

Fits on counter and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

I’ve been using this for almost 2 years and still love it – cute, clean, handy & sturdy.

Beautiful addition to kitchen. The charcoal feature which i really didn’t want actually seems to work.

simplehuman 45 litre rectangular step can white plastic : Perfect Trash Can!

I was afraid when i let off the opening peddle it would slam shut, but it’s really smart. It slowly closes, really gently & there’s not a chance that fingers will get smashed. It comes with liners but i also read the we can use our own trash bags, which is what we will end up doing. I love that you put the liners under the edge of the lid where it is not seen from the outside. I definitely recommend this one.

Never thought i’d be someone writing a 5 star review for a garbage can, but here i find myself doing just that. ’80 bucks for a garbage can?’. I thought to myself, but alas, i’m a firm believer in that you often get what you pay for. I did my research, and honestly, the reviews don’t lie. Sure its a little much, and i’m a little wary of step garbage cans, but the first thing that actually sold me was that this model comes with a 5 year warranty, so that helps a lot right there. But honestly this thing is amazing. It looks nice, it functions smoothly and quietly, and its actually too good at keeping the smell in the can. A few times now i’ve let it fill up and been unpleasantly surprised by the powerful smell that comes out when i open it. All kidding aside, i know that that means its doing its job, and i’m very impressed because i smell things when the lid is open that i dont even get a hint of when the lid is closed. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is tired of buying a cheap garbage can every year or so and doesn’t mind investing a few bucks in a great garbage can.

Very sturdy – does not slide around. I like the bag holder inside the can. I would definitely buy it again.

I thought it was a bit crazy at first, paying this much for a garbage can. 7 months later though and i consider it one of the better purchases i’ve made. The good: bags never fall into the container (unlike most garbage bins for 13 gallon tall kitchen bags) tapered design means i’ve rarely had a full bag get struck when trying to remove it, let alone rip. The little bag dispenser is convenient, if a bit silly. Finally it just looks goods. The bad: it’s expensive, as are the custom fit bags. I could see them becoming an issue for a large family, however for a childless couple that recycles a lot this hasn’t been much of an issue. This will fit 13 gallon tall kitchen bags, mostly just at the cost of capacity.

It is the standard for this product and excellent. Caveat their bags do not meet specs for recycling. For garbage in my state you need black bags. White clear bags are for recycling. Simple human bags are of a heavy material and not clear. The company welcomes comments.

simplehuman 45 litre rectangular step can white plastic + code K 60 pack liners : Holds bags really well because the top lip folds up for bag installation. The soft close is nice although there is no lock like my previous simple human so be aware if that is necessary. We use regular trash bags (not the simple human ones) and they work fine. It’s a tight fit aground the lip, but they haven’t broken or torn so we are very happy.

I bought two and set them side-by-side at my furnished rental property. They’re beautiful and practical, and the step-to-open mechanism seems sturdier than others i’ve bought in the past. The hidden pocket for storing a bag supply is ingenious. These are great, and my renters love them as much as i do.

This trash can is very modern as well as practical for everyday use in the kitchen. I love the fact that the trash bags fits perfectly and does not slide into the can. The slow closing feature is nice also.

Who knew a trashcan could be so terrific. Unlike the steel one that we tried first (thinking it would be sturdy for longtime kitchen use, wrong) that one arrived dented all over, fortunately amazon made the return ez, this simplehuman trashcan though is terrific.Less than half the price of the supposedly sturdy steel one, this thing arrived in perfect condition, works beautifully. . The only thing that could improve it, febreeze trashbags. Fortunately i have a box of those, will use them instead of the simplehuman ones that came with, just don’t like that whiff of garbage smell when the thing pops open.

Ok, i couldn’t believe that i bought a trash can that cost so much. I had regret the second i pushed the complete purchase. I kept thinking, ‘ i’ll just return it and pay the shipping. ‘ then it came, opened the box, and it was instant love. The lid is sturdy, the materials are smooth and nicely finished. The action on the lid is, well almost calming. I felt the same way when i got my dyson vacuum. Good design does cost more, and it’s worth it.

The top always comes unattached and you have to fight with it to get it back on. Also difficult to remove the bags in the back in the space they give you to put the package.

This is a really great trash can with bag storage in the back. I didn’t want another stainless trash can because it never stayed clean looking. I was worried this would look cheap being plastic but it doesn’t. It looks great, up to date with the ‘matte’ trend. Only issue has been it shifts backward occasionally & leaves a mark on my floor.

I didn’t realize it till i got it which is no problem. A handy feature is the garbage bags are dispensed from inside the unit, all you do is pull them out. It’s kind of neat the way the top closes like slow motion. Simple human is a great company with a large selection of unique & quality products.

Would have been better if there was an indent in the top so you could manually open the top. Good design, sturdy construction and useful product. Keeps my dog out of the kitchen garbage. We dont purchase the associated bags for this product. Simply use the cheaper generic tall kitchen bags.

We have stainless appliances but our last stainless garbage can was impossible to keep looking clean. These cans are easy to clean and look very nice. As silly as it sounds, we always get compliments on themlove the bag insert inside but after we used up the bags that were included, we’ve just been using 13 gallon costco bags which fit perfectly.

Very nice, super wide opening. Had it only one day, but seems to work well. We had the itouchless before this – the lid got too dirty and was hard to clean. The opening was too small, and eventually the automatic sensor stopped working. It only lasted under one year. We replaced it with this one after seeing it at our local ice cream shop. Seems to be just what we were looking for. Will report back in a few weeks to update. 6/27/16: have now had this a few weeks and it’s wonderful.The thing i’ve noticed (using the simple human trash bags), is that the shape of the trash can allows the bag to completely fill so i find i don’t have to empty this as often as with my itouchless.

I got one of these december 2016 after seeing my sister’s can & it’s the best garbage can i’ve ever had. The lid firmly sits inside of a lip so smells are contained in the unit. Tall kitchen drawstring bags with febreze and they fit just fine. I bought this after pricing different brands at walmart. It cost a few dollars more than the bh&g brand & i got a significantly better unit delivered in perfect condition to my front door. The bag doesn’t show when the lid is closed because of the 2 piece lid & this makes for a neat look. A 5 yr warranty is nice too 🙂 if i change my mind i’ll update this but i don’t know how something could go wrong.

Oh my goodness, yes it’s just a trashcan, but this is the best trashcan ever. I never thought i could get excited over a trash receptacle but i have. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is plenty spacious while being just the right shape to not take up too much room. This is a must-have trashcan for all households.I will be purchasing more for our house soon.

I’ve never been so in-love with a trash can. I read reviews that you can utilize other ‘normal’ trash bags with this can, i tried once, and didn’t have success so i gave up. Not sure what other people are using – but i don’t care. I love the special bags that they design for this. You can put in the compartment inside the trashcan; reminds you when you’re getting low; they’re not even that expensive.

Brought this trash can to replace the old simplehuman swing lid can. (old one was fine, i was doing moving and sell it to my friend). New one is pretty good, lid close softly, if you want lid hold in place you gonna lift the entire chrome ring up. So far i am still using the trash bags come with the can, big and durable, reach all the way to the bottom and you not gonna fill it way too full because bags hold up to 13 gallon but trash can is about 11 gal. A bit complain is it takes some effort to step on, if simplehuman can make it ‘just need a tap’ that will be better. But that may require external force to open the lid (like battery) and increase costs.

Just received trash can and love it. First ordered a black one and received a white one. Returned and ordered another black one and just received it. The lid wasn’t on but it just popped on. Put a bag in and ready to go. I didn’t really want to spend $80 for a trash can but i went with the reviews and i’m glad i did. Since i just got it i will add to review if anything is bad about it.

Can’t say enough about how much i love this design. The bag holds open and can be filled all the way, no wasted bags and no need to constantly empty the trash for bulky items. The liner refills built in seems like no big deal but it’s huge. Convenient instead of going to the cabinet for a refill it’s easy and a reminder sitting right there to just replace the emptied bag. Stays clean, smooth operating. My curious pug can’t knock it over.

United Solutions BA0109 24-Quart Bulk Storage Container – We use this to put dog waste bags into in our backyard

The handles fell off, but the lid has a tiny catch on two sides that snap the lid on. I use this bucket in the dog yard to put picked up poop in but i use a double garbage bag to line it before use of course.

I bought 2 of these one for under my desk and one for bathroom. They work great is you have the space, oh and my pets ca’t spill them cause the top grips on.

It would be perfect if the lid sealed more tightly but, for the price, this is an excellent container. If you plan plan on storing anything like bird seed or dear corn, make sure the containers are completely out of the weather.

It’s very sturdy and the lid lightly locks without the handle locks, which is a good thing since i mistakenly broke one handle as i took it out of the packaging. I wouldn’t use for liquid or transporting anything without tying it down. The black handle locks are pretty cheaply made.

Perfect size for a large bag of dog food.

Serves my needs for what i wanted.

Using them for potting soil, garden soil, peat moss, bird seed, and plant food.

Hard to find an inexpensive covered trash bin for bunny litter box emptying.

My fault thought it would be bigger.

I do a lot of camping/hiking/mountain biking and while i’m out there i practically live out of my car. I bought this to keep in there so i can be more regular about cleaning up and throwing out any trash accrued. The bin itself is the exact size i was looking for and having a locking lid was a must for me so this was perfect on paper. It worked great for the first few weeks, but this past weekend (after less than a month of use) one of the latching handles broke off. Can’t say i’m surprised given the price of this, but it was still very disappointing after so short a time using it. Waiting for the second handle to break any day now. Now i’m trying to figure out if i can somehow latch it with bungees.

Great storage container, using it for plants.

I bought these to hold my dogs food as i was having problem’s with him getting into the bag once it was opended these were great as he can not open unless someone forgets to put the lock handle on it.

Did not hold up broke after a month.

I lined this with a cloth diaper pail liner and am using this as a dry pail for my son’s dirty diapers. The price is amazing, i was really hesitant to spend twice the amount of money on a trash can with a lid of the same size. I was worried that this would be brittle, thin plastic, but it’s been holding up wonderfully, and the lid keeps in odor. When the diapers are being washed, the can doesn’t stink when it’s empty. As long as the price remains this low, i recommend this.

We use this to put dog waste bags into in our backyard, nice quality. The lid locks tight and keeps the smell contained.

I use it for my disposable bladder pads and it keeps odors at bay with the diaper pail deodorizers.

I bought this to store potting soil. It is much smaller than i anticipated. If it were larger it would work great. I still use it for a limited amount of soil.

One of the lid latches broke the second day i used it. Better for something that will not get lots of use.
