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.

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.

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.

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......!!!
