Whitmor Aluminum Handle Triple Recycle Sorter, Best Sorter for Recyclables

So great – excellent quality. This bag is still standing up well after a few months of use. It’s now almost half the price of what i paid for it, but i still think it was worth every cent. We go through a lot of recyclable trash, and other options (various trash cans, etc) were too bulky for our kitchen and didn’t fit anywhere. Keeps my kitchen looking tidy. I just spray it with multi-purpose cleaning spray and hose it down every few weeks to get rid of anything that may have leaked etc.

I had been looking at these for some time and decided to finally spend the money on them. We have looked at several of the offerings but i did not want green bags or some other bright color bags that brought attention to themselves in my kitchen. Although large, due to the black color, you hardly notice this in the corner of the room. The compartments are large and even know i have only had them for a few days i think the construction will hold up well. If you have been looking for a convenient interim receptacle for your recyclables this is the one you should get.

So practical and convenient. I had looked for a convenient way to deal with my recycling and i didn’t want big bins that would take a lot of space. When i saw this, i have to confess that i was rather skeptical. This item is fantastic and really practical. It is easy to carry, which was essential for me since i live in an apartment building and the sections are spacious. It looks very nice and sturdy and really keeps the sorting easy.

Comments from buyers

“Nicely made – larger than I expected, it’s nice, but it won’t stand on its own, Perfect Fit.Just what I was looking for”

Make transport and sorting super easy. This thing is very sturdy and quite large. I had been using the paper bags for trader joe’s to hold my recycling and each of these separations can hold nearly two paper bags full of recycling. It makes it super easy to transport. It’s kind of a pain for the guys at the recycling place to get the various items out separately, but that’s the only downfall i see.

Great alternative to expensive recycling bins. It’s big, it has sturdy handles, and contrary to another review i read, mine actually did stand up on its own empty, right out of the box. I haven’t needed to wash it yet, so that’s my only concern. It’s made of the same woven material as nice reusable shopping bags are, so i’m not sure if you can wash it.

We dont have a pick service for recycling and i wansted something to be able to sort stuff and then drop it off. This is spacious enough to gather recyclables for a week into its 3 compartments. I have out in trash bags in each of them so when its full, i pull it out, dump it in car and drop off the recycle center and bring bac the same bags and line them in this sorter.

Perfect if you have to carry recyclables to a center (no curbside pickup). This bag is much larger than i expected, luckily it lives in a deep closet so it’s not an issue, but i recommend measuring your space first where you plan to put it. It does take up less room than if you had 3 separate bags, however, so if you need to store/sort a lot of recyclables, this will save you space in the long run (since it’s so narrow and tall)if you have room to store it, the large size is great. Even when it’s overflowing it’s easy to lift because of the padded handles. The 3 divided spaces inside are flexible, making it easier to cram more than you thought possible into the bag. Some reviews say it won’t stand on its own, when i first got it would ‘stand’ but would need to lean against the wall a little bit, but after it’s been filled a couple times it stays open squarely after it’s emptied. The only thing that could improve on the design is if the back side was one large flat pocket for carrying larger pieces of cardboard, but it still works great as is.

Excellent product at a great price. This item is so great i immediately ordered a second one the day the first arrived. It is exactly as advertised and larger than expected. I plan on using one for recycling and one for laundry. It fits perfectly in a narrow space and your laundry gets pre-sorted with no fuss. Well made and comes ready for use.

Best sorter for recyclables. Way bigger/roomier than expected and very sleek looking. No more ugly plastic bags hanging on my door handle. This sorter is the easiest for an apartment dweller who has limited space. I hang it on the pantry door handle and it never gets in my way. The rubber handles grip nicely and hold great when stacked on each other – no slipping. Very happy with this purchase.

Nicely made – larger than i expected. My recycling bag just arrived and wow. It is larger than i expected. It fits perfectly in the space i had planned, so i’m very happy as i won’t be making as many recycling trips as i expected. I was just expecting it to be a tad bit smaller from the photos on amazon. I just took a photo of the bag with a 1 gallon milk container in front of it to give you a better sense of scale. The 2 provided pics of the bag and the description are correct, but they just look small to me. Perhaps because of the white background. If you are concerned about it fitting a space properly, get out your tape measure and use the dimensions provided in the description.

I’ve been using this for several months now. I use it for my bottles, glass and cans. Once it fills up, we can easily transport to the recycle center. Since we stay in an apartment. This keeps our balcony recycles looking nice and neat and easy to transport.

It’s much larger than i expected, holds about a weeks worth of recycling, fits in the trunk of my civic, and mine stands up. My only complaint, and reason it didn’t hit 5 stars is my recycling logo is upside down. Not a big thing, but i’m a little ocd about little things like that and i keep the logo to the wall.

It fits just right between the dryer and the wall. I was concerned it would be too light and collapse when we picked it up but it is very sturdy. I have looked for years to find the right solution for a tight spot in my laundry room. Great product and i received fast.

This is so perfect perfect perfect. No need to install anything, amazing sturdy and ergonomic quality product. Small apartments, or large houses, just find a spot for it. About 36 inches wide and 28 inches tall. How easy to sort recycling and to dump it now.To make it even more time efficient i use small biodegradable bags in two of the compartments to throw things away and then dump the last compartment directly into the bin.

Perfect recycling solution for apartment or small household. This bag with its three compartments makes recycling super easy. The tall thin design doesn’t take up too much room in my pantry. The bag is tall and roomy and can easily accommodate 2 weeks worth of recycling for 2 people in an apartment. Overall a better solution than the three stacking plastic bins we used previously. The construction is very durable thick nylon with padded metal handles that are comfortable to walk with in hand to the recycling center 1/4 mile away. Seems like it will last for decades. The bag stands up on its own very well the first time i tried it, even when empty, other reviews i read previous to purchase said it did not stand on its own. It has never fallen over for me.

A great separator for recyclables. My wife and i have recently become much more serious about recycling. We searched for good ways to deal with the separate types of recyclables that our local processor can handle. We wanted something that wasn’t too flimsy, was able to be folded (although we are now noticing we don’t collapse it in practice), and able to be carried, yet looked good. This fits all of those requirements, at least, once the areas are mostly full. Each of the three areas will hold a standard paper bag, but this bag is taller than those. The handle is padded, yet firm. I can say that if all three sections are holding glass, paper, and plastic, you will find this can be a heavy bag to lift, so the handle is very welcome. This sorter seems is a ‘must try’ if you are otherwise searching in vain.

I read reviews that said the bag falls over. I have had no problems there. The best part is the handles. I used to dread the monthly trips to the recycle bins. So many trips back and forth to the car. Now, when i am going past a recycle place, i grab the bag, tuck it into the trunk, and then easily unload, walking past the assorted bins. Also, my kitchen is on the second floor. I tuck this bag out of the way, beside a hutch. No more overflowing paper garbage bags or wastepaper bags littering my kitchen.

Much bigger than i expected and perfect for my recycling needs. Much bigger than i expected and perfect for my recycling needs.We don’t have curbside collections here and so we have to go to a local transfer station. This bag makes recycling so much easier– everything is combined in one big bag. Lol: it’s so big my pet birds took off when i hauled this out of it’s box. I love that there is a section for paper, plastic, and aluminum. I had been taking three really ragged worn out bags which would sometimes spill over.

It was bigger than i thought but not. It was bigger than i thought but not too big. I had a trash can that fit under my sink and it is taller than that. I think i may order a second one for more sorting options.

This bag is so convenient for my purposes. It is ightweight and easy to pick up and stick in my car when i go to the recycle center.
