Rated 3 out of 5Â by HappilyClutterFree Slim profile
I purchased this for a family member who recycles all things paper. The slim profile is perfect. Two bins that can be separated is very convenient. Size/design of cans makes it tough to find a bag that works well and still looks neat. Only in house for a week so will have to see how it stands up to repeated use.
Would not suggest this item if you plan to use for bulky items.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BabsArts Great Solution to Recycling Issue
I tried several other ways to separate my recyclables. Most just took up too much space. This is the perfect (double) can to separate out different materials. I have one right now that has the money-back cans and bottles on the top and plastics on the bottom. Now I'm going to order another for paper recycling and use the top for regular trash. Yes, frequent emptying is necessary but that just keeps things tidy.
I've had no trouble with the mechanism or the quality of the plastic.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by BigMyke Great idea for a product
However, the physical reality aint there for useability.
Bought it to accommodate my aching back (I don't have to bend to open it). Too bad the top pops off almost every time we use it. The hook and lever tolerances are laughable.
If a better engineered one was for sale I'd gladly pay extra.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by klonberger Best for small houses
I love this! We are a family of 6 and it works perfectly to use the top for trash and the bottom for recycling...we just empty it daily. I love the way it goes together too...makes it really easy to clean also. The only down side that the plastic isn't super thick so the bottom trash bin has cracked and the latch on the top that make it open with the foot pedal no longer works..but the price is low, not a big deal to replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Angie914 2 bin recycler
I purchased this bin for myself a few years ago. I have a small apartment and so it fits great in my small kitchen. Its easy to clean, just wipe down with a clorox wipe and it still looks as good as the day I bought it. I use the top bin for garbage and the bottom for recyclables. The top bin fits your standard plastic grocery bags so no need to purchase expensive garbage bags. And since it fits regular plastic bags, you have to empty the garbage a little more frequently, which is great, because you don't get the stinky garbage smell of a large trash can.I recently purchased another one for my mom, because she was sick of her stainless steel garbage can always looking messy and it was not easy to clean. She loves this garbage can too. I highly recommend. Its a great and durable product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tgreen1188 My recycling bin
I love it, along with appearance of it and the ease of use. When I first purchased it, I was wondering if my kids would use it or break it. So far they are liking it as I'm to, and the structure of it seems to be pretty solid. My 15 year old loves the fact that it is separated like it is so that she does not have to go out the the big recycling trash can as much, I love this feature as well. Thank you Container Store for this product. LOVE IT......!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by em12345 Perfect for a small kitchen
I use the top for garbage and the bottom for recycling. I love that both are removable with handles. The foot print is small but the height and pedal is great for use while cooking. I am a little concerned with the brittleness of the plastic. (Some of the units at the store had broken parts in the back portion) but the one does not have issues.

This basket is small, it's true. But it is the perfect size to put in our kitchen to collect the recycling, which we then move to our larger bins out side. Excellent and clever design allows for easy filling and emptying. I'm buying a second for the upstairs!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SantaCruzer88 Awesome Compact and Affordable
I have one of these in my small apartment kitchen; have purchased one for my sister who has a teeny apartment in NYC; and have purchased one for my parents home as well. They are awesome and so much more affordable than other models. I use it for trash and recycling, because I am fortunate enough to live in an area that allows you to mix your recycling. However it would be equally as useful if you need to separate your recycling. There are 2 bins and then also hooks to hang bags off the sides of the unit of for cans or the like. Super slim and well designed. Other than the fact that it is plastic (can't get 100% behind something plastic), I can't recommend it enough!

I purchased this RECYCLE bin to use in my BBQ area. I filled both bins with different BBQ pellets for my grill and smoker! It works great! I need to get one more now for the other flavor of pellets I keep on hand! The unit saves so much space in my BBQ patio and looks good too! I'm actually thinking there may be uses for this in my garage!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by JohnWayne too SMALL
this product is a good idea, but it is way to SMALL. If it came in a bigger size it would be great. but with my house hold, the two small bids for recycling was filled up within 2 days. It is 40 gals, but each is only 20 gallons. So if you have a big family or really into recycling this is way to small.

We needed a compact solution to recycling in our kitchen, so when I found this at tCS, I was thrilled. We have had this for about 2 weeks and so far it's been great. The only drawback is the plastic 'pushers' at the back. Whenever we take the bins out to the outdoor (larger) recycling bins, they almost always fall out and it's a litle frustrating having to keep placing them back where they belong. I'm a little concerned that they might end up getting lost.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by writer Not worth $40.00 plus shipping
Great idea but cheaply built. Foot pedal broke after couple of uses. Top falls off if you open it too wide. I would have sent it back but then it would have cost me extra shipping charges. Wish I would have spent more and purchased the stainless steel one instead. I'll just have to wait until it's completely of no use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kmwood 2-Bin Recylcler is a Win!
My aunt got a new dog this year and keeping her (the dog) out of the recycling bag has been an ongoing problem. I found the 2-bin Recycler appealing because it closes completely and saves space by stacking. The size of the bins are large enough to contain a few days worth of items, but still small enough to not be cumbersome or awkward to empty. I used the Go Shop! Click and Pickup! service and was pleased to find my order was waiting for me, even though I arrived 45 minutes earlier than my scheduled pick up time. I took it home and put it to use and it has been a big hit! No more finding semi-chewed, recycled goods strewn throughout the house.
I thank you and my aunt thanks you, even if the dog doesn't!

We have a small veritcal location for our trash and recyclables. this works great. we are not required to sort our recycleables, so we use a trash bag in the top portion for everyday trash, the lid keeps smell at bay. then we toss our recycles in the bottom. the handles make it easy to take them to our garage bins.

I love this little guy! I live in a condo where space is tight, but also in a city where recycling is encouraged. The Recycler is very compact, and fits perfectly inside my hall closet, but also holds more than I expected. The bins pop out easily when it's time to empty them, and the handles make them very easy to carry. Perfect for small-space living!

These bins are just the right size. They hold a tall kitchen garbage bag with plenty of room to tie a knot when they are full. (Too big for the small bathroom bin bags.)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Allisoussi Love, love, love this product!
This seemingly simple product cured our recycling woes. We had used a cadre of make-do items to capture our plastic and paper recycling and it always left a mess at the kitchen door and was unwieldy to periodically take out to the larger bins. This item not only cleared up the ugliness of the previous 'solution' but it such a great design, that we actually enjoy taking the recycling out now. Everything works as advertised, the top pops off easily (even completely full) and the bottom tips out for removal and reassembles painlessly each time. Kudos to the designers - best $40 spent in awhile!

A wonderful small-space solution for your trash and recycling needs. My family uses two - one upstairs and one down to collect our trash and recycling in the smallest footprint we could find. We've been looking for something like this for years. Well done.

We have more recycling than trash each week and are thrilled that this helps us sort and easily take it out to the bins. Much neater and easier than our open-top bin and bags, plus closes to hide the grimey (and sometimes sharp) stuff from our infant (until he figures out how to open it).
