Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv the recycle crunch can I bought this for my summer rental cottage to make it easier for guests to recycle and am so happy with it. It is sturdy, fits several days worth of cans and bottles (small cottage), handles are sturdy for carrying down to recycle trash cans and it can be rinsed clean if the cans weren't rinsed and soda and beer spill in it. I am going to purchase some more for use at my own home and my office as I am really trying to encourage others to recycle. I think they would be great to take camping, for picnics and to the beach. Since they crunch down they are easily portable. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for me In California, those brown paper bags aren't free, adding one more reason to use these instead. I have very little floor space for recycling. I can keep my second bag folded away until the first bag is full, and then I hang the full one on a hook until recycling day. (In my area, glass/paper/cans aren't separated out.) October 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great recycling bag! I purchased and use this great bag for my cardboard recycling. Prior to this, I had used a small plastic trash container and would then take the cardboard out of that and put it in yet another container to transport (I have to take my recycling to another location to be recycled). This bag is perfect for the broken down cardboard -- first, it stays upright on its own so I no longer need to use the trash container. Secondly, it has longer straps than an average reusable bag so it can be carried easily regardless of the size of the cardboard (within reason, of course). Lastly, because of the "crunch" sides that keep it upright, it also keeps the bag slim so putting it in my car is a cinch -- it doesn't fall over in the trunk or backseat and make another mess to clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Size and Portable I was pleasantly surprised at the easy of opening up this product, the wonderful size and being able to begin recycling right away. I need another one and will order real soon. December 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag It's well made, I don't mind having it exposed in the kitchen, it holds a lot, and it's collapsable. I already owned one, but wanted a second one to separate recycling. Highly recommend. July 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My second purchase This is my second purchase of the Crunch Can. Years ago I had ordered the blue and now I ordered the black (which is actually gray). I wish they came in more colors. I was tired of having brown shopping bags all over my house for recycling. These look much better & easily fold up for storage. November 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great recycle can Love love love this for organizing recyclables! It's lightweight and sturdy at the same time. June 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too small I purchased this product for my kitchen and a Chevron Crunch Can for my study at the same time. I was surprised at how small this can is. It is usually full within a day or two which defeats the purpose. It is very cute for the kitchen. I just wish it were larger. I will be replacing it with a Crunch Can. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Greatest! We live in an apartment and the recycle bin is not close by. We had been collecting newspapers, etc. in a shopping bag. Have been looking for a better way to do it and this crunch bag is perfect! It is large enough to hold a few days worth of papers, a milk carton and odds and ends of other stuff. Plus it looks much better than a paper shopping bag. The plastic lining helps with wet things and it's easy to carry. March 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Good Alternative to Recycle Bins I purchased this product cause I needed something that I could use to take the recycling out. Since most of the recycling bins were too big and difficult to move around, I decided to buy this crunch can. I love the inside plastic liner, which makes cleaning it a breeze. I also really like that it's lightweight. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is because the handles are too short, hence they won't allow you to carry the bag around your shoulder, which is inconvenient. January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by just as described i should have read it closer. it is way smaller than i thought. it does stand up on its own. i just needed something bigger. October 3, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I live in NY and have to return my cans and bottles to the grocery store each week to get our deposits back This bag works perfectly for me. I like how the inside can be wiped clean, its fairly sturdy and transports nicely. April 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bag for Recycling We use this bag (in green) in our tiny kitchen to hold recyclables before they go out to the bin. It is roomy, cute and in a great color, easy to clean (due to a plastic lining), and easy to tote out to the bin. It's also nice to have an open container for the recyclables so that any dampness does not create a smell. April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pick Great Size for the pantry. We don't have any empty bottles left at the bottom of the pantry anymore. It is washable. The handles are also a nice added convenience. Such a great pick. April 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the perfect size for recycling Just the right size for all my kitchen recycling needs. I bought 3: 1 for paper; 1 for cardboard; 1 for plastic. They are very sturdy (uncrunched) and the interior plastic coating makes cleaning a breeze. My sister saw them in my kitchen and she bought 2 for her own home as well. March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by handy! This fits a brown paper bag so I line it and then use it for paper recycling. Looks nicer in the kitchen that the old bin. March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for recycling I have used these for a couple of years now to put my recycled materials in, right next to my kitchen trashcan. It is small enough to fit in my trash drawer and easy to pull out and empty into my large recycle bin. February 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by My only complaint is that I I just wish there was a bigger size option. February 18, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too small I was pretty surprised to see how small these are when I opened the box. Two milk jugs would fill one entirely, which absolutely defeats the purpose. They are about the size of a small bathroom trashcan. The website gives the dimensions but I didn't really pay attention since it says they are specifically for recycling. I assumed (wrongly) that they would be big enough to hold more than one day's worth of recyclables. I'll be shipping these back soon. The material is really nice: it seems like it would hold up well and be easy to clean out. I just wish there was a bigger size option. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by cute and functional This recyclables bag is cute and functional. Our recycling is located at the end of our cul-de-sac, so I have to drive it down there. This bag keeps everything together and the handles are useful when I am lugging several bins. I love the fact that it is coated on the inside and easily washed out. We use it solely for bottles and containers that had liquids. November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by DO YOUR PART - RECYCLE- THE EASY WAY These bags are great! Just the right size. They stand alone and can be folded when not in use. Mine are always in use though. I love that I can wash them and if you do not have a recycle need they make great bag to keep in the car for a big shopping trip. I just love them!!! I have already convinced my neighbors to try this neat and easy method. October 17, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Could be bigger The bag is very cute, but thought that it would be much bigger. September 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best recycle bag Was looking for something that was not too big and stood up on it's on. This recycle bag is perfect. Love it July 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So convenient This crunch can is great-it fits well in a very tight space under my sink, and its design leaves plenty of room for other stuff. Wipes clean in a snap, and is flexible so I can jam a lot of recycling in it. May 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect RV recycling buddy I use mine in my camper--it flattens nicely for storage and doesn't rattle around during transport. The only bad thing about these is that I didn't order one in every color. April 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it, use it as my trash barrel I line this with a plastic liner, and use it as a trash barrel under my sink. For me, it's perfect. On trash day, if I have a heavy bag, the handles make it easy to carry it down three flights and outside. And the Crunch Can itself is light weight and not bulky at all like a hard-sided trash can might be. It doesn't have a cover, so occasionally the under sink area can be a little smelly, but a bowl of baking soda helps with that. The bright green color is a happy site to see when I open the cabinet door. I may buy more to use as actual recyling containers. For the time being I'm happy with this as a reasonably priced, easy to carry trash solution. April 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product I now own three of these nifty bags -- they are lightweight and not obtrusive in my small condo. They make transporting recycling super easy -- the long straps make all the difference. I took one star off because they don't "pop down" as easily as they make it sound. All in all, I like these a lot and would highly recommend. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Space Saving Recycling If you are tight on space in your kitchen and don't want another bin messing with your decor, these are PERFECT!!!!! They wipe clean, can be easily stored when not in use and no liners are needed. March 18, 2013

Community Q&A

What are the dimensions on this bag?

I need a small, flexible trash bag to fit under our kitchen sink between pipes. I am currently using a paper grocery bag inside of a reusable grocery bag. It's okay but getting messy. I love the idea of this one having long handles, being easily cleanable, and small.
Asked by: TurtleMania
The dimensions of the bag are 12'' wide & 16.75'' in height. The handles are not that long, they extend to about 8''.

Will a paper bag fit inside?

I'd like to fit a paper bag inside for paper recycling so I can pull it out rather than leave the bin outside. Does anyone know if a paper grocery bag will fit?
Asked by: sposies
i didn't measure, but it seems the same size as a paper bag from my grocery store.

Are these machine washable?

Asked by: BigMac
Unfortunately, this Crunch Can is not machine washable. We recommend wiping it with a damp cloth to keep it clean.
