Iris White Connectable Trash Cans with Hinged Lids is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Recycling Bin I recently bought one of these trash cans to use as a recycling bin in our kitchen. It serves our needs well and fits easily in a corner. The lid snaps on tightly and it is really light weight so that it is easy to carry to our outdoor bin. I do wish that this product was available in colors other than white.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another Color I bought the pewter venti can a year or more ago and love it. This would be great for my recycle garage container but in any other color other than white. Please make this in another color I would buy more than one. I would also put one on our back patio. White gets dirty and I end up spending way to much time cleaning the bins in white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Just the right size and exactly fits my needs. Also has a removable plastic rim on the inside so you can hang your garbage bags within the can.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful but could be made better Very practical when you need multiple cans (in our town, we need 3) however, the lids have fallen off a few times and I think the construction could be better. That being said - they serve the purpose and I like the rings that holds the bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs I needed a trash can to fit a narrow shelf, and this works perfectly. The ring inside the rim of the trash is handy for holding the bag in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but Too Wide w/ Connectors I was going to use this for my itty bitty bathroom closet to hold kitty litter since the buckets it comes in are so wide. This would be the PERFECT size, if it weren't for the connector thingies on the side. I had to put it in my pantry instead and fill it with recycled grocery bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution Bought the smaller size to sit by back door, to avoid going outside for every recyclable item. Lid is hinged and bags remain in place.

Connecting 3?

Can you connect 3 of the 12 gallon size? Do the parts that interlock line up to,connect,3 the same size/3 of the 12 gal? And can you also connect 2 of,the large(12gal) & 1 small?
Asked by: Kela
Yes! You can chain as many as you would like of either size together! The right side of the cans have three outer prongs and 2 gaps while the left side of the can has 2 outer prongs and 3 gaps. Because of this the left sides of the first can always fits into the right side of the second can and you can keep adding as many as you'd like. Just FYI, you can have the lids facing opposite directions if you rotate one of the cans (not sure why you would do this) and the cans will still link together but the cans will no longer be aligned perfectly, one will be set further back or forward than the other.

How do you install the grey square and how does the garbage bag go in

The grey plastic piece is just laying in the box not sure how to install them
Asked by: Upwife
There is a lip in the can the plastic piece will rest on over the bag. So it goes (from inside -> out) grey plastic piece, then the bag and then the actual trash can. For a bit more detail, the bag goes in the trash can and then the grey plastic piece goes in the bag resting on top of it and on the inner lip of the can. The plastic piece kind of pins the bag in place. The bag will stick up rather than fold over the outside of the can like a regular trash can. I like to fold the bag INTO the can (over the gray piece). Also, if you are having trouble holding the bag up while putting the plastic piece in, try putting the grey piece fully in the bag before it's in the can and then put the plastic piece in place and adjust the bag as necessary.

trash liners

which trash liners to buy for both the 8 gal as well as the 12 gal
Asked by: millicent
I tried the two letter liners you guys recommended and here are the results....the "H" did not fit even close for the smaller can and the "M" doesn't fit the larger one....I can get the "M" to fit the smaller can although the retainer ring sort of fits....measuring the diameter of the large one it's 25 1/2 inches and the bag is 22/12 so of course it won't fit....I really like the connectables and with continue to find the right the "h" bag will be going back

Connectors removable?

I would like to know if the connector pieces are removable. I need two cans to put in a pull trash cabinet, these are slightly to big based on the exterior measurements given. However, if I can remove the pieces used to connect them, I think they would fit. Thank you.
Asked by: Jbl09
The connectors of our Connectable Trash Cans are not removable.
