Blue 6 gal. Stackable Recycle Bin with White Handle is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 63.
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!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! We needed some smaller ended containers for recycling in our new building and the handles are a great plus! We had been used to bagging our recyclables and this new location you dump them into a community container so this its the bill perfectly. The bins are a tiny bit difficult to stack because some people just don't understand what part to try to connect together. The bins are sturdy though and a great fit for our needs at least.

Community Q&A

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.

Asked by: deeeee
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!

I really want to use these to organize my freezer but the spec seem 1/4 inch too deep. Can you confirm that they really are 15" deep? Everyone seems to use these in freezers but mine is just a fraction of an inch too small and I'm hoping the advertised size is an overestimate (something that happens pretty often with other products).
Asked by: Jeffsstuff
These measurements are accurate. All of our measurements are listed from the widest point. So this product, 15" would be from the base to the top of the bin.
