Blue 6 gal. Stackable Recycle Bin with White Handle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bins for 7 CU Chest Freezer I purchased 4 of these for my 5 CU chest freezer. I reluctantly didn’t check the measurements and only 2 were able to fit stacked on top of each other. I’m not using them because the top bin doesn’t exactly stack right and leans over once you fill it with food. It would have been better to have all 4 bins in at the same time because they can support each other when they lean. If you have a 7 CU chest freezer, this is perfect for you. Still check your measurements just in case. I got them on sale for $5.49 each so I didn’t bother returning them. They are still great, sturdy bins and I will find some other use for them. My friend purchased a similar product on a very populAr online marketplace for way more money and they cracked in her freezer. I also did curbside pickup for this order during the pandemic and the process was very fast and smooth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to stack I purchased these for my 8.7 cu ft chest freezer. 4 fit into freezer. They do reduce the storage space, but it's better than a big unorganized hole. A major problem is how hard they are to stack (sit on top of each other).. maybe they stack more easily into smaller 7 cu ft freezers.It takes several tries to get them to sit stacked. I am considering returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it - going to get a 2nd one So we moved to a state where you have to take your cans & bottles to be recycled, before we just tossed them all in the recycle bin to be collected street side, so moving made me have to reassess what I do with those items. This handled bin is awesome, it's small enough for my purposes, I can fill it up over the course of the week and take it to recycle when I do my grocery shopping. I like that it's small enough to fit in the floorboard of my car and I can put it under the shopping cart when I'm done recycling so I can go about the rest of my trip without having to return it to my car right away. The funniest thing is that I get compliments on my recycling bin when I'm walking to/from the store with it - which is a pretty hilarious thing to get compliments on, but I guess it turns heads in it's own way. I tell everybody I got it from The Container Store. I'm probably going to pick up a 2nd one sometime soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recycle It! I have a smaller place so these bins do not take up much room and are easy to move, empty and clean. I like the fact they are stackable too. I would recommend especially if you are limited on space or you don’t have tons to recycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for apartment Needed a recycling bin for our kitchen that did not take too much floor space. This one fits perfectly under the sink and it's easy to carry to the large recycling bin in our building. It surprisingly holds a lot. I make sure to rinse out any bottles and cans to keep it clean

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps me remember to recycle We don't have a big place so there is not enough room for a recycling can next to the regular garbage can. The options are recycling stacks up on the bar or I just throw recyclables into the regular trash. The latter is especially the case for mail and paper. Now, I keep this by the back door which encourages me to recycle even the small stuff. It's easy to carry this out once a day on my way out and dump in the big recycling can outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but Mighty When I took them out of the carton my first impression was that I would have to return them because they looked too small. But now that I have been using them I have changed my mind. They hold quite a bit! Good purchase!

I will be purchasing a few more to finish off organizing my deep freeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't hate my freezer chest anymore! I bought four of these containers after seeing a pinterest post that it could solve my freezer chest dilemma of not being able to find anything in it easily. I was ready to sell the freezer and be done with it but I'm glad I didn't. These four containers fit perfectly and separated the different food categories so that I knew what I had in stock. Whew, a lifesaver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits perfectly next to the fridge! I looked for these online after seeing them used for organizing a chest freezer on a youtube video. I have a small narrow space between the fridge & wall and thought these would work well for my recycling. I was using plastic bags hung on magnetic hooks & attached to the side of the fridge but that was messy looking & inefficient. I checked the size to make sure they would fit & placed my order. Love the features of this Stack & Carry! Bright blue in color with a white recycling logo, easy carry handle & stacks four high perfectly! Will purchase more for the chest freezer organizing project soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a condo! I purchased two of these recycling bins for our condo on many floors up. Although there is a trash chute, there isn't one for recycling so we bought 2 of these to temporarily store our recycling as well as carry them downstairs. They are very sturdy and aesthetically pleasing. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for freezer organization Bought these to increase organization and accessibility of our chest freezer. Able to stack 2 and close the freezer lid without problem, leaving enough room for 2 pizza boxes on edge in the front of the freezer. Now able to easily lift out a tub to get at the tub underneath instead of shifting boxes and having frozen items all over the place. Will be buying more for our upright freezer, too. So nice to keep like items together. This was a great idea seen on a blog that really works well with these bins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for kitchen! These stack nicely, they are the perfect size for a kitchen (not too big that they are too heavy when full yet big enough that they don't need to be emptied every day) and the handles make emptying them a breeze.

What type of plastic are these made out of? Wanted to use them for in my deep freezer. Wondering if the plastic can handle the cold without cracking.

I've been using these for one week thus far in my freezer with no problems. Of course I've only had the freezer for less than 2 weeks. I bought these to help organize it. I've lifted them several times and so far no problems.

Will These accommodate stacked newspapers?

I want to use these to store old newspapers in my apartment and then use the handles to easily carry them to the recycling room. Will they fit a standard newspaper size so that I can stack newspapers in them?
Asked by: Shelbert
probably not --- unless you folded the newspaper in half lengthwise -- and then it wouldn't hold many newspapers. it doesn't take much to fill these. but that is what makes transporting them so easy!
