So I was looking at something sort of similar to recycle that was over $100, and then I found these!! They are fabulous! I bought a big and small container in the Gray color and stacked them in my kitchen. They are actually pretty nice looking and with the stickers that come with them (plastic, glass, paper) it makes it so much easier for guests to figure out where to put stuff. We recycle a lot in our kitchen (not just bottles and cans but paper) and I use the 13 gallon for the paper recycling and its so roomy. The 8 gallon one is on the bottom and we use that for cans. The nice thing is I can easily open it with my foot and toss cans in. Its really has helped our recycling needs.

a million possibilities
I bought two of these in the bright chartreuse - one in each size- for the labeled purpose. I needed a way to neatly gather the recyclables before taking them to the curb can. I bought the small one for newspapers and the larger for cans, plastics, and glass. (We can co-mingle in our town.) They stack perfectly which is a relief because they didn't fit under my kitchen sink. Not the bins' fault - the pipes are low and in the way. A great feature is that you can still open the lids when they are stacked. We've been using them for a couple weeks and they're great. They have a lip around the edge which makes it easy to carry them outside. I've started to think about what else I could use them for!

Shop, Click and Go_recycle bins
Ever so tired of lugging bottles, paper, plastics and jars in not-so-sturdy grocery bags, into and out of the car, I have been searching for suitable recycle bins. My most recent Container Store purchase included 2x8 gal and 1x13 gal recycle bins. I love that these stack, come in great colors, have the best lids which allow stacking, access to the bin and hides the mess. And they were just the right width to fit between the wall and my washing machine. SCORE! I could not be happier. Is it sad that recycle bins make me this happy? naaahhh Organization is happiness.

Best Recycling Container Ever
I purchased 3 of these containers and was very skeptical, but when they arrived, I was so impressed. Not only are they stackable and look great that way, but I chose to just line them up in a mini recycling center we set up outside the back door. Love them!!!
