Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect garage storage I bought these for my garage so I can setup a permanent 'donate' and 'give' station. Two high will fit perfectly on my garage shelving. My parents liked them so much they got some for their recycling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garage storage at its finest I purchased these bins to use in my garage, but not for recycling storage. I use them to store my daughter's shoes, beach/swim stuff, and outside toys. These sturdy bins hold a lot and don't take up a lot of room. I kind of wish there were a bit wider, but they keep things off the floor and accessible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great all purpose bin I bought these bins to use on the floor of my pantry to hold bags of flour, sugar, potatoes, etc that I didn't want to put on the shelves. They are large enough to hold a lot of items and are very accessible. I don't see ever having to replace them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for organizing My recycling area was always a giant mess and recycling day a disastrous chore. Depending on how your town does the recycling will determine how many you need. We have 3 but need to get 2-3 more. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Great durable containers. I originally purchased 3 for recycling items. Now that we've moved to an area that does not require sorting of recyclables, we use them to store kids outdoor toys and other items in a corner of our garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional, light, inobtrusive I purchased three black stacking recycling bins for news- and scrap paper to put in my garage. Pros: they add barely any weight to load when filled; their design makes for a snug fit when stacked; they hide the majority of the waste, calling no attention to themselves (when stacked). Cons: a tad pricey. Still, an excellent purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than expected These containers were larger than I expected (which I'm happy to report). I read the dimensions, but without getting a ruler out, I'm horrible at estimating what they actually mean. I've had a very disorganized office for years and part of the problem would be that I'd have a small trash can and a small box that would be used for recycling. They'd both be overflowing in one day an I'd either empty them out constantly or stack things on them until they'd tumble down. Also since the box was cardboard, I'd kick it sometimes and knock it over. I finally (I'm 33, so this has been going on for quite some time!) decided to invest in a better option. I love that they stack, so they now take up the same space as my other containers did. They, however, hold at least 3 times what my old method did. So, I'm glad I finally made the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Funtionality (But Not Beautiful) These are EXACTLY what we needed for the recycling under our bar in the kitchen. One thing to note that you can't tell from the pictures very well is that these bins ship nested and stack with a little stagger to them. I like this because it makes it easier to put stuff in the lower bins. My only qualm is that they aren't that stylish. Recycling bin and stylish don't seem to go together in all my research, but they are at least available in black (which matches our appliances).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awsome recently moved to a condo complex that strictly enforces recycling. my husband and i didn't recycle before so we had soda cans and water bottles everywhere or in plastic bags until we were ready to take them out. these bins are such big help and now our kitchen is not taken over by cans and bottles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still great after all these years We bring our recycling to the dump (um, I mean Transfer Station), so I lug these to & from my station wagon frequently. I decided to purchase white rather than black, as our basement is dark enough, and while I thought that was risky, it ended up not being risky at all: they wash up very well, and look great after 8 years or so. They hold a lot, and are easy to handle. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recycling Bins - Best Purchase Ever These stacking recycling bins are great! Put one on top of each other and they take limited space. They are also easy enough to lift apart and separate them to take your returnables in, then easily stacked back together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recycling bins! I bought two of the black stacking recycling bins to use in our house for recycling paper. I had been using a paper bag but it looked trashy so I got these bins. They are perfect! I use the bottom for general paper recycling and the top one is for paper that I can re-use on one side. My daughter generates mountains of paper from her school work so we recycle it all here and re-use it if it is still has one side to spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm addicted We use these bins to store just about everything in our stock room. I think we've purchased about 50 of them at this point - worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great recycling bins I originally purchased these bins because recycling in my town was voluntary and you had to make a trip to the recycling station across town. These bins made everything much easier. I would just load the full ones in the car and dump them on the way to wherever. I have since moved several times and I'm still using them to sort my recyclables, even when I had curbside recycling. Now I'm back to having to take my recyclables to the recycle center on my own again, so I'm really glad I've kept them all this time. They are indestructible! Very large and heavy duty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great recycling solution! Sturdy and versatile! I put newspapers in the bottom bin, there's plenty of room to lay them flat and still accomodate lots of additional paper items. I stacked a second bin on top which holds two paper grocery bags side by side for glass, plastic, etc. So much easier to manage recycling!!

Is there a certain size bag / liner that will fit this bin best? I assume 55 gal bag is too large and 13 gal bag is too small?

Asked by: Tony Uncle Al
The gallon capacity up to the opening is 7.8 gallons. The gallon capacity up to the top of the bin is 12.7 gallons. If you want a trash bag to cover the rim of the bin, we would recommend a 13 gallon bag to make sure you can place it around the rim.
