Perfect for my garage space
Bought these about a month ago and am very pleased. They stack sturdily and the door mechanism is easy to work while allowing one to fill the container as full as possible. Haven't had to load them to take to the recycling center yet, but they should fit easily into the back of the truck and the wide base should keep them from tipping.
Poor Door Design
Picture doesn't show which way the door opens. Most people will think the door opens inward with hinges at the top like every other bin in the world. It does not. The hinges are at the bottom and the door opens out at the top. And stays open unless manually closed. Definitely not recycle friendly. Had I known this I would not have purchased it. This is the poorest design I've seen.
Poor Door Design
Even though this is called a recycle bin, I am using it for my kitchen garbage can. It is heavy plastic, and the flip-door helps keep the garbage odors contained. The recycle symbol is embossed in the plastic flip-door with a recycle sticker over it. Not the prettiest garbage can(if there is such a thing anyway), but it is so very useful, and I am glad I found it on the Walmart website.
Door is questionable
I wanted a recycle can that could sit outside with a door to keep the majority of the bugs at bay. I do like the bin and am using it next to my patio for a garbage bin for paper and miscellaneous waste that should not draw too many insects. The door on this thing is questionable, though. It does drop down and outward as other reviewers have said, however, I question the durability of it. Often the alignment is off and will not close completely. Also it is very light weight. I do not expect it to last very long. Also, I do not recall any of the other reviews mentioning that you must push down on the door latch to get it to latch completely. Requires very light pressure but does then set the door off alignment to close if not careful.
Great size and functionality
My only true complaint about this recycle bin is that the sticker is NOT what it looks like on the picture. You actually would have to write in what you want on the sticker provided. Also, the door is a flip down door, you actually have to pull it down from the top and it swings open at the hinge on the bottom. This works great for us because I have an infant that likes to get into things. It holds about a week of recycling for us which is great to not have to keep taking something outside every time. Good buy!
