Waste Bins

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

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

Bit small, would suggest for apartments only.

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

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

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

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

Reviews from purchasers :

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

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

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

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

Fits perfectly under my kitchen sink, seems well made.

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

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

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

Good quality and a true blue.

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

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

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

Fits perfectly under my kitchen sink, seems well made.

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

Rubbermaid FG269288 Slim Jim Bottle and Can Recycling Top – Tall slender trash can lid

It is a lid that specifically fits without better options but is extremely overpriced and cheaply made. I very rarely write poor review (never) but this deserves the mediocre three stars.

Top fits rubbermaid commercial slim jim recycling container with venting. Top fits rubbermaid commercial slim jim recycling container with venting channels, plastic, 23 gallons, blue (354007be) to prompt people to put the right items in the bin.

Stays on and covers completely. Stays on nicely and covers completely so i can keep my recycle bin outside. It is hard to remove when changing the bag, so i just drape the bag over the top. Here are the specifications for the Rubbermaid FG269288 Slim Jim Bottle and Can Recycling Top:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Fits your Rubbermaid Commercial Untouchable square recycling bins
  • Ultraviolet stabilizer minimizes discoloring and fading
  • High Density polyethylene is strong and resists moisture
  • Color-coded tops encourage separation of recyclables
  • Measures 11-1/4″ x 20-14″

This lid adds more verticle space inside the trash can, however the opening usually does not close although it’s suppose to. I may have to make the hinge holes bigger so that the flaps will swing closed. Overall i give it 4 stars, because it fits the tall slender trash can well and adds more space inside the can.

The lids seem a little weird. They just sort of ‘perch’ atopthe containers. I have them where they won’t get knocked over, but if they did i would expect that the lids wouldbreak. A word to the wise: the lids are also a bit noisy when used. If container is in ear shot of someone sleeping,wait til the person wakes up to put trash in.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great product, once I fixed it
  • Takes a licking and keeps on ticking
  • expensive but useful

This top to the rubbermaid slim jim recycling container cost almost as much as the container itself. But without the 2-holed top, people tend to put garbage in the container mixed with recyclables. There was enough room to put an ‘aluminum cans only’ sign and tape it to the space between the holes. The top fits loosely on the slim jim. I would prefer a more snug fit. The dimensions of the container and top were just right for the space alloted, so i grudgingly paid the asking price for this.

Some reviewers wrote that the trash can liner prevents the flaps from returning to the closed position. That is true, but i also found that with the right liner, and taking a few seconds to press the liner to the side of the trash can solved the problem for me. It is sturdy (and expensive). I have found that step-on trash cans break after a few years. This looks like it will last for many years.

I find it exceptionally useful in holding the clear plastic bag in place. I purchased this item to use with the container. I find it exceptionally useful in holding the clear plastic bag in place, and looks much nicer than having an open container. Since i keep it outside on my deck, i cover it with a large plastic garbage bag to prevent water entering the container when it rains. I would recommend this product.

Top cracked within three months of use in our kitchen (very light use). That’s ridiculous for something that cost $30+ and is meant for commercial use. Update: i contacted rubbermaid and sent them a picture of the crack and they quickly sent out a new lid at no charge. The crack shouldn’t have happened, but it appears that rubbermaid stands behind their product. I’ll bump them from two to three stars for doing the replacement.

Garbage stops it from closing. It works well enough but with the narrow opening; once it’s filled to the top, garbage stops it from closing. We have to constantly push the garbage down so we can use the entire bin. However, we did get it for it’s narrow fit in our business and to keep bugs from getting in and out. Again, it works well enough but a lot of food gets on the flaps when guests are pushing their food in which then of course attracts flies.

They go on solidly and allow bag changes over the top as well as clean up easily. . I use these for the top of my recycling center bins (slim jims) at home and use a chalk marker to label the top. They go on solidly and allow bag changes over the top as well as clean up easily.

I may have to make the hinge holes bigger so that the flaps will swing closed. Overall i give it 4 stars, because it fits the tall slender trash can well and adds more space inside the can.

Great lidholds the bag in place so it will never fall down into the can like other trash canswish it was no so expensive.

Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. So i waited to review and after two months of use i can tell you this thing is made for pain. I’ve run in to and knocked it off, i have basically thrown it, in all my gracefulness, while changing the trash and despite having cement floors it hasn’t even flinched. The color has distorted slightly, from the sun or the trash itself, but that is it. So pretty darn pleased with it.

Wish they were clearly marked. These lids fit perfectly on the slim jim cans. I wish they had marking on them to remind people that they are for cans and bottles. The sticker kit is far too expensive and difficult to find.

Trash can flaps malfunction. I purchased this item for work. It fit okay on top of the rubbermaid trash can. The issue i have is the door flaps get stuck and never close properly.

Great lids, just wish they snapped on instead of just sitting there. If you have dogs who like to get in the trash, you might to try to work something out with a bungee cord or something.

mDesign Oval Wastebasket Trash Can – Perfect color and I love the fact that it is

I ordered this wastebasket based on the color and size with that being the order of importance. While the size was fine for the home office, the color is very close to being black. In bright light it resembles the picture, but not really close. The picture is such a pretty color and it would have gone so well with my decor. Oh well, i guess it’s a wastebasket.

I like the oval space saving shape.

I needed something for my family room that didn’t stick out like a sore thumb and this did the trick. It is the prefect size and it blends in against my leather sofa or coffee table. Just big enough to hold a weekends worth of stuff my guy won’t walk to the garbage for lol.

  • This is perfect in my small office
  • Great little basket!
  • NOT bronze, Chocolate brown color

Perfect for a small bathroom, exactly ehat we were looking for.

Durable, aesthetically pleasing, and easily able to fit a plastic bag for easy disposal.

It’s a nice matte navy color, plastic feels solid. It looks sophisticated yet durable.

Had i read the description more closely i would have seen that the wastebasket is gray plastic, not silver. This is my fault entirely but i cannot give 5 stars.

Smaller then i thought but love it for my space.

I have a lot of things in my apt that are teal. When i saw this teal wastebasket, i had to have it. It’s a great size, l love the color. It’s a beautiful teal just like the photo.

Really like it, just the right size and looks great in our redone bathroom. The plastic is heavy duty and since it is oval it fits very nicely where i need it. It is designed nice so that it does not tip over easy too.

The oval one came scratched. I was going to return it but now i’m too lazy.

‘stylish ‘ without the stylish price tag. . They are light and easy to carry from room to room.

Order arrived quickly and as described.

This is a nice color of bronze but the material is rather flimsy. I hope it lasts at least a year to get a bit of good out of it. It does at least blend in very well with the other bronze accessories. We can only hope for the best and if any one else makes this purchase we wish all the best of luck. It does appear to wash out very well too.

I do enjoy the design and have them in every bathroom. Thought these were metal, but they were made of a dense plastic. I do enjoy the design and have them in every bathroom. I would say that these were worth the money paid.

Not bronze, chocolate brown color. Good quality, however, please note that it is not bronze. It is a dark, chocolatey brown. I was disappointed it wasn’t bronze but was not really invested enough to return it, just needed a trashcan. However, this might be something someone may want to keep in note.

It’s holding my trash, it works.

Waste basket looks nice in the master bath. Unless you touch it, you wouldn’t know it was plastic. It really looks like bronze metal.

Rubbermaid Commercial FG571873GRN Stackable Recycling Box – But it is sturdy.

Sturdy and pretty much what you expect. We love the dark green alternative to the usual blue.

It holds my recycling very well.

Great, simple, easy to clean. I have one in my kitchen and one in the office. It’s nice having had the option for the bins in green, which goes better with colors in both rooms.

  • It’s a green bin for recycling.
  • Nice quality for under the desk!
  • It’s a square green recycle bin!

This is a good size for a family recycling bin. We can place our recyclables in the bin next to our trash before toting them to the larger bin that sits by the street for collection. I’ve found that having a convenient bin makes recycling easy and i don’t miss any paper or plastics that might otherwise go in the trash.

It holds what it’s supposed to hold. The decal was kind of messed up as shown in the picture but it’s sturdy and a good size for my 13 gallon bags. It stays under the kitchen sink so i don’t really care much about the decal. It does what it’s supposed to do so i’m content with it.

  • Commercial grade construction to withstand years of indoors and outdoor use

About the same size (maybe a tiny bit wider) as the bins companies provide in cubicles. The green is a nice change from the typical blue. Matches my kitchen a lot better.

As it really seems like they are made of a more flexible. These are high quality products. They are replacing the recycle bins in my office that began cracking. I do not know why they are cracking, perhaps because they are old or they were affected by the heat during trips to the big recycle bin around town. Perhaps they are simply lower quality. I am not worried about these rubbermaid products, as it really seems like they are made of a more flexible, high quality material. I hope they last longer than my last set did. I also really love the nice green color – it is a nice contrast and something different than the blue – green is still associated with recycling, and being green.

Really happy to have one of these in my house as. This is basically what i expected. Really happy to have one of these in my house as it’ll force me to use it aka recycle. I’ve been trying to be more green lately so this is a step in the right direction. My employer has a huge recycling center so there’s no reason for me not to fill this up and bring it in on my way to work. Pretty excited about having this, you should be too.

Rubbermaid deskside recycling bin. This is just the perfect size i was looking for. I really is a desk side trash can. The color is very nice, and i like that is has the recycling symbol on it, so no one gets confused and throws trash in it. Very nice quality like other rubbermaid items, and a very good price for what you get.

Has a good solid feel to it. Can throw it into the garage when i’m in a hurry and doesn’t crack. – was worried the height and more narrow base would lead to more tipping, but it hasn’t tipped over yet, even during 40mph winds. – narrow base means more floor space in garage. Score- green recycle color and symbol makes it easily distinguishable for garage/recycle trucks.

Nice quality for under the desk. We’re starting a recycling program at work. These are the same size as our normal office trash cans under each desk. Everyone will be getting one to go beside their trash can to encourage recycling. The color is a super dark green as shown. There is a recycling symbol on just one side. I laminated a list of what can and can’t be recycled and taped it to the back side of the trash can. I’ll be using my silhouette cameo machine to add a recycling symbol to one of the skinny sides of the can so it shows when the can is under the desk. Overall, they’re thick plastic and great quality for only $6 eachpros:-nice quality-great pricecons:-i wish they were a lighter/brighter shade of green, but this is the color all the rubbermaid recycling cans are.

It’s a square green recycle bin. Not much to say other than the recycle bin is sturdy, easy to clean and quite large. I’m glad i ordered it and it helps me recycle on a weekly basis. One thing to note is normal plastic grocery bags will not fit inside this bin.

Its a trash bin for recycling. The plastic form is well made and hasn’t cracked or bruised since purchase. It will suffer scratches, but this is expected.

These work great to hold our glass recyclables in the garage until we go to the recycling center. We also bought the clips to attach to the wall so we don’t have to always bend over to get the bins.

Nice container for recycling. Perfect size and color blends in with my kitchen colors so it’s not noticeable beside my cabinets. I like the size and shape, and the gauge of plastic isn’t too thin.

Good quality, reasonable price. Just what it purports to be. A good-quality recycle bin at a very reasonable price. I am very pleased and will probably order a few more.

I was very tired of looking at the blue banged-up recycle bin provided by my city. I keep my recycle bin on my mud porch and that blue bin was an eyesore. I purchased this bin and it is taller than my old blue bin so holds more recyclables. The green is a little darker than pictured. This bin is tough stuff – very durable feeling and so far has held up to the recyclables thrown at it. I just wish i had bought this sooner.

Durable green rubbermaid plastic recycling bin. Durable green rubbermaid plastic recycling bin. Even if the recycle logo is turned to the wall, most everyone recognizes green as the recycling bin.

A good way to help the enviroment. . I keep this in the house and use it for keep the boxes that i breakdown making it much easier when i have to take them to the recycle building. I am thinking of getting one for drink cans too.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have been looking for a small. I have been looking for a small trashcan for a while. It is hard to find one that is small and sturdy. I like that this one is plain and black.

So i should have read the dimensions a little better. I bought this to go in my office so i could attach my paper shredder any time i needed but it doesn’t fit. Still i love the size and i did need a tag can that wasn’t going to take up a ton of room so i’m keeping it.

It seems durable though for. It seems durable though for the price. I hope they have a different color available. I might buy another one albeit bigger than this.

Comments from buyers

“Sturdy at a great price, Simple wastebasket, ideal for under the sink and out of sight., Highly recommended!”

A $4 trash can, free shipping and it holds trash. It cost me less than four bucks and free shipping. Can’t get much better than that.

This is a sturdy and basic black garbage can. I bought it for use in my laundry/utility room. Garbage cans seem overpriced these days so i was happy to find a sturdy garbage can like this one at a good price. I may buy another one to use for recycling in our rv.

Nice sturdy plastic waste basket. The waste basket is it’s own shipping container.

Does what it is supposed to do, it is functional, great for inside the kitchen cupboard.

Very nice trash can for the money. Much nicer than i was expecting given the price.

Bigger than i thought b/c it’s hard to imagine what 28 quarts looks like and i didn’t feel like pulling out a tape measure. I bought a few and also use one as a hamper for towels.

Nothing good or bad about it. Nothing good or bad about it. The size was as expected and it seems to be made of sturdy plastic.

My trash deserves only the finest of receptacles. Richards company rectangle wastebasket epitomizes visionary style. Every detail is intended to thrill your senses. Its durable, linear, low-density polyethylene composition literally stopped me in my tracks. Its spacious interior and seductive styling separates it from every other wastebasket on the market. My trash deserves only the finest of receptacles, and placing your garbage in the s. Richards company rectangle wastebasket is like placing your garbage directly into the future.

This thing holds trash like none other. This may be the best trash can i have ever owned. It’s only been a couple months, but i’m hopeful it will be holding my trash for years to come.

It’s a trash bin, it collects trash, and it’s great. I bought it for my on campus college room, and it takes about a week for me to fill it up completely. It’s not too large and not too small. Just a good medium size to put next to my desk. If i needed another bin, i’d definitely buy this again.

Perfect size, price and it can hold trash, what more can you ask for?.

Wanted a small trash can for near a desk at home. Good size for the small trash bags i already had on-hand. It’s sturdy, and it hasn’t tipped over or anything.

Nice and thick, perfect for my office.

No cheap seams sticking out. Balanced and square to shape. No smelly off-gassing like some imported plastics. Left it on my wish list so that i can get another if i need one. Rough idea of the size- more like a work, desk-side can than a small bedroom trashcan.

Nice sized durable trashcan at a great price. This wastebasket is a great size for the price paid. Thirteen gallons at least and i only paid $5 with free shipping. I order these in 2 and i would recommend these highly. Durable, a good size for the home office or kids room, and a fantastic price.

Perfect size for a desk trash can. Holds a lot of trash and stays hidden away under my desk without getting in the way.

This wastebasket was much bigger than i expected, but i’ve ended up loving it. I use it in my home office (it’s not a decor item) and it’s large enough to take papers, manuals, even catalogs. It is a lightweight plastic. The one negative is that it came with one side totally plastered with stickers which i still haven’t gotten all off, so i face that side to furniture.

These little trashcans are just great. They seem to be very durable and just the right size for a bedroom or office.

Good trash can for small area.

2-in-1 Folding Trash Grabber Pick-Up Grabber Reacher Tool – They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind

Have had them before,nothing lasts forever. Gotta know how to use it to keep it open.

Works great for small or flexible items. Works great for small or flexible items, e. Difficult to pickup cellphones, books, etc.

This has been my favorite style of reacher for years. Gifts for 2 friends who really needed such. As an occupational therapist, this has been my favorite style of reacher for years. I love and use mine often, from picking up eggs in the hen house that i can not reach to reaching for glasses or cereal boxes on the top shelves.

  • They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind

I purchased this grabber because of back issues. Works beautifully so that i don’t have to bend over too much. Even picks up the tiniest specks of dirt.

Works for what i bought for but doesn’t seem to be as strong as the one i was given in rehab. So far it’s working like a charm. I am short with a short reach so needed this to pull laundry out of my new washing machine.

Folds to a very convenient size. Will pick up lightweight objects with at least one dimension of 4-1/2′ or less. The folding feature influences how you can position the grabber, but that’s quickly learned. In all, a useful tool for handling most out-of-reach objects in any setting; eliminates stretching and bending.

I like it very much but it doesn’t seem to be quite as strong as the one i previously had.

They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind. I couldn’t be without these grabbers. I have tall cabinets and it allows me to get things off of the shelf without getting a ladder/stool. They are great for cleaning out the residue paper that falls behind the shredder basket when emptied.

Fun and useful little tool to have out camping. Works great, light weight, and folds up to sore this in our camper.

Nice big trashcan for my kitchen. Just as described in add and shipped fast, as i’m a prime member. Easy to put together, but sometimes the foot peddle needs to be reattached, as it does not fit tight.

But i do love the size and ease of. Haven’t had this for too long, so can’t comment on durability, but i do love the size and ease of use.

Well made,strong and durable. Very well made and easy to put together. This was a great purchase on my part. I will buy again when needed but that won’t be for quite awhile. This waste can is so very well made, strong and durable.

I can fit pizza boxes in it. The lid is a little tricky to assemble.

This is a great trash can just got it last night took about 15 minutes to put it together. Will buy from the company again. Only drawback is i have to buy compactor bags for it but that’s okay.
