Searched far and wide for the perfect recycle bin
After much reviewing of other similar products web and my world wide ,I finally found this treasure here in the container store. I was very specific in what I wanted in a recycle bin. It must be stackable, easy to carry up and down 3rd story stairs (even for a 13 year old) must be large enough to contain a couple of weeks worth of recyclables and must be white, which believe it or not was the hardest request to fulfill. This bin is perfect and even looks nice and blends well in my small apartment. Thanks Container Store for having EXACTLY what I needed. My search is over. I would definitely recommend this product. Very clean looking and very well organized! It even came with labels to help make organizing much more presentable and easier. I am a very pleased customer!

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.

1000s of uses!
A recent closet swap of a coat closet under the stairs to the cleaning closet in the mud/laundry room got the creative storage juices flowing! Turning the closet under the stairs into a pantry/cleaning closet was a great move since it is closet to the kitchen. To make use of all space, including the floors, I used the recycle bins for the boys snack size bags of chips. Now they don't have to fumble with the cardboard box the chips are packaged in (50 to a box!) and can easily open, retrieve and move on quickly when packing their lunches daily. The larger size is great and holds 50+ snack sized bags of chips while the smaller one is great for nurtri grain bars, crackers, etc.
Another use I have planned for the linen closet is to put extra soaps, shampoos, toilet paper, etc. in the bins again making use of that empty floor space. I can easily remove the bins from the closets to vacuum also! Like I said, 1000s of uses! Just get creative now!

What a wonderful Dog Food Container!
The moment I saw the 8 gallon bin I thought "what a great way to get the large bag of dog food off my pantry floor!" My daughter picked the green tote thinking our puppy would like it best. :-) It is a perfect bin for everyday use. The flap top is so functional for our scooping of food daily! The perfect size for our large bag of dog food. And it will keep the food fresh without me having to dump little morsels all over the floor to feed our pup!
