Love These Bins
I purchased one 13 gal. bin and two 8 gal. bins. They stack beautifully, and are very durable. High quality. I love the fact that the colors are subtle, rather than the garish colors of most recycle bins.

not just for recycling
Instead of recycling, we use the large-sized bin to store dog food. It holds even the XL warehouse store-sized bags just perfectly. The snap on lid fits securely on the sturdy base, and the flip-lid is just intimidating enough that we never worry about the dog sneaking food.

Perfection in a box!
We bought this container to store our cat food in because our cats kept getting into the cat food bag. It has worked perfectly for this!!!!

Recycle Bin Refresh
I bought the 8 gal. Grey Recycle Bin to replace an old bin I'd been using for years, that had a broken lid and was in bad shape. I hadn't found any bins similar to my old one locally, so it was great to find this replacement when placing a Container Store order. This new bin looks great and is very sturdy. It holds a similar amount as my old one - which for a household of two soda drinkers, isn't enough to hold a week's worth of plastic and aluminum, but I also have another recycling container under the sink. To hold a whole week's worth in one bin, you should consider the larger size. The flat recessed area on top, designed for stacking multiple bins, is also the perfect size for a stack of newspaper set aside for recycling.
