Commercial Zone Canpactor 30 Gallon Recycling Bin – Great product for cans, not so much for water bottles.

It is nice to have it all together as one unit but had i realized it was not an electric crusher, but a manual crusher i would have spent much less on just buying the manual unit, hanging it on the wall and placing a cheap trash can underneath to catch the cans-too expensive for what it really is.

It’s better than nothing- but just okay. Our household uses lots of cans- soda, juice, beer, tea, misc. I rent, so i prefer not to install anything on a wall so i loved the idea of the ‘canpactor’ when i came across it on amazon. Alas, while better than ‘no can crusher’, this is nothing to get excited about. First off, other than screws, it is 100% plastic. This is not necessarily bad but it does tend to feel a bit unsteady when you use it because it is so light. I guess i could put a brick or two in the bottom but then it would not be convenient to take to the trash. Not a deal breaker, but you should know about this if you are thinking about one. My biggest issue is with the way it crushes cans. Most can crushers crush the can vertically.

10:1 decrease in bag use and space. Best compactor and can combo i have seen. I live in the country and cannot go to the dump very day. Before having this i would amass plenty of bags of empty cans. Now i just compact and compact and compact. I have not filled up even one bag before going to the dump. Onle drawback is that the ‘skinny’ beer cand will not fit without first being pre-crushed.

  • Makes recycling a snap (or a crunch)
  • It’s better than nothing- but just okay
  • Great product for cans, not so much for water bottles.

I absolutely love this can crusher/storage can. If you are the type that has cans collect on their counter and dread bagging and/or moving them to a separate location to crush them, this product is for you. The price is bit high but well worth it if you get sick of 20 or 30 cans collecting all the time. It is a large can, we use 30 gal bags in it but if you have the space, its worth it. It is a bit light if the can is empty as people complain, but its not a big deal. You may need to brace the can with your leg when you crush the cans until it fills a bit. It’s hardly an inconvience, to be honest. We have amazon prime, and although this did not qualify for it, we only paid 1. I don’t know if this is a new thing or not.

Quite useful and works well. Requires little effort to crush cans. However, as others have noted, it needs 20 pounds of weight in the bottom to hold in place.

I bought this product for our office and everyone loves it. While it’s as light as any normal trash can, we didn’t find it to be unsturdy.

Works as advertised- great product. We have one of these at work, and i liked it so much, i bought one for our home. Some people are complaining that it crushes the cans the long way, instead of the short way, but who really cares?.They are still crushed and still take up a lot less space than uncrushed cans would. One thing i had to fix though- the slot where the cans slide into the storage compartment of the unit has a lip on it that likes to catch the cans, which causes the cans to stay there on the top of the unit, instead of sliding into the storage compartment. I cut that off with my dremel, and it works fine now. The only thing i would change is to give it a bigger storage area. Or make the top capable of setting on top of a standard, round garbage can.

This product is worth every penny. I have recommended this to many people. I don’t get to use it very often because my kids love to use it. I plan to buy a second one for our church. A great way to make extra money.

Love this however only fits standard size cans.

Had a friend that gave me one of these, works xcellent, holds 400 cans, easy to operate. Extremely quick delivery considering the bulk size, light & easy to move around, narrowenough to put in small places. My friend saw it & wanted one also, so that is where thisshipment came from. It won’t crush cans bigger than a reg. 12 ounce can, but i don’tneed anything else. Good buy, cheap shipping, quick delivery.

Works better than expected. . ( making folks write more than a few words makes it much less likely that you will get a review, by the way. ) see how i filled up the space?.

Great product, 3 years of continuous use without a. Great product, 3 years of continuous use without a problem and usually store outside so it shows its strength having survived alaskan winters. Shipping cost was a little high though.

Everyone that uses aluminum cans has got to have one of these.

Bought this for where i work and it works great. Nice to have this all in one can crusher and garbage can to store the cans. It hold a lot of crushed cans and is very sturdy.

Makes recycling a snap (or a crunch). Some people complain it does no better a job than crushing cans with one’s feet; others, that it is not electric. First, it doesn’t claim to be electric; and second, if you’re young, and your feet and ankles are strong and pain-free, great (my feet are suffering from the general wear and tear on an older guy’s body). Bottom line: my wife and i sit with a few dozen cans, remove the pop-tabs (for ronnie mcd, you know), and assembly-line them bad boys through the very well-designed and well-made cruncher, which slips the cans down a slope into a wide port and into the bottom lined with a large garbage bag. It’s also extremely sturdy, likely to last for years. Very happy with this product.

Great product for cans, not so much for water bottles. . Works great for cans but there’s no receptacle for bottles and they’re not the right size to crush. I may cut a circular hole in the top for bottles. This also doesn’t take standard tall kitchen bags (i may try garden bags, this isn’t a negative, just something to be aware of). Someone said they could step on the cans just as easily (hence the photo), but i’m on carpet and i have to admit it’s fun to crush the cans. One other thing i just found out is there are small holes on either side of the chute for the can in case there’s a little liquid in the bottom of the can. If there’s only a tiny amount it will drain into the can. Any more than that it won’t handle, but a good design addition. The can crusher ‘flicks’ the can into the slot which is kind of fun, but it doesn’t always work, but you can always flick it in.

Was just what i was looking for. Everyone in the family uses it.

But i like the cover it keeps down on the fruit flys. It takes a while to get the knack of crushing the cans with this , but i like the cover it keeps down on the fruit flys.
