Product information

This stainless steel, 40 litre capacity recycler by Simplehuman is designed for superior durability and strength with a solid steel platform pedal. The narrow footprint allows the bin to fit in tight spaces, while the lid opens from the centre like a butterfly for maximum clearance under low counter tops. A rotary damper controls the motion of the lid for a slow, quiet close.

Q & As

simplehuman Butterfly Recycler, Stainless Steel, 40L 4 5 7 7
My Lovely Bin I have been looking at this bin for ages and wanting it, bought it now. It is so smart, the stainless steel keeps clean with out finger marks. Because it is narrow, it fits into a small space in my kitchen perfectly, a wider bin would always be in the way, and yet the bin is spacious and has room for recycling and non-recycling. I am so proud of it. :-) 05 September 2014
great product We were fed up of having separate bags of rubbish in the kitchen according to their recyclability. Not wanting several bins in the kitchen, we wanted something to separate the rubbish as it was acquired. There are several similar bins on the market, but non come close to the quality of the Simplehuman. Yes its a bit pricy, but the build quality is such that I don't think we will ever need to buy another bin. It has easy clean liners, and the liner bags fit. It even looks great. Save yourself time comparing others you will want this one in the end. Buy this with confidence and enjoy a tidy kitchen. 17 August 2014
Beautiful but smelly The positives- looks fantastic, low opening clearance so fits under most worktops, same depth as most worktops, solid mechanism and beautiful soft close. However a small design compromise means that when closed, there is a 4mm gap between the lids so if you have anything smelly in there, then the whole kitchen ends up smelling like the bin. I expected more from Simplehuman through previous purchases. My confidence was so great in them I foolishly threw away the receipt and box so I'm now stuck with a beautiful but smelly bin. 25 June 2014
Just what I needed. I wanted to replace my old simple human bins as they were low ones and I have a new puppy on they way, I was imagining lots of stealing incidents! This one is as good as the others. It looks good and is brilliantly functional. Nice and weighty so I'm hoping to avoid any incidents. It's not a problem for me but the lid does close slowly, but also quietly. 29 May 2014
Well-designed and functional product Great for easy disposal of non-recylable and recyclable material. Pedal works well to open lid and lid closes elegantly. Seems to be fairly dirt resistant. Only complaints that it's not clear which of the many Simple Human bin bags it uses, and the 'call to purchase' more bags that comes with it doesn't specify. It's large, and not cheap but worth spending extra on. 08 January 2014
nice bin, one design fault This is a really sleek good looking bin. Good sized compartments and excellent opening/closing mechanism. Bought it for our small kitchen as it's the smallest footprint two compartment recycler I could find. However..... When we got it home it it only had two of the four rubber feet on it. Other two were missing. Phoned the shop and the display model had only 3 of 4. Perhaps these need to be fixed more securely. 09 June 2013
A Rubbish Bin Review!!!!! A sturdy, stylish bin that fits nicely in our small kitchen. great to have recycling compartment rather than a separate bin or carrier bag taking up space and making the kitchen look cluttered. happy with it and people do comment on it when they come round, strange to be talking about a bin i know, but they do. 15 January 2013
