simplehuman Touch Bar Recycler, 48L

Product information

The simplehuman dual-bucket touch-bar recycler makes it easy to efficiently sort your rubbish and recyclables in one place. It has a unique touch-bar that opens with just a touch of your hand, a tap of your elbow, or a bump of your hip, and stays open until you are ready to close it – ideal during food prep or cleaning up around the kitchen.

Additional features:

  • Space-efficient hinge: the specially shaped sleek hinge is designed to move up and out of the way for the widest opening possible.
  • Unique dampers and precisely angled springs control the lid so it opens smoothly and evenly.
  • Gentle slider discs: nylon discs under the bin make it easy to slide and gentle on your floors.
  • Bucket park: for an easy bag change, lift the inner bucket a few inches, tilt it toward you, then rest it in the bucket park position.
  • Removable inner bucket: durable inner bucket catches messy drips and lifts out for easy cleaning.
  • Fingerprint-proof: resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny.
  • simplehuman code G liners are tailored to fit this bin perfectly so they don't slip and the bag stays completely hidden when the lid is closed.

A clever bin needs a clever liner that stays hidden and is easy to remove. Check for letters and colour codes to get the right size.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Combination bin Not cheap but looks good and offers equal recycling and waste bins in one unit Internal shelf makes chamging bages easier than many other bins i have had. 28 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best bin ever This bin is exactly what they say, it looks good and is big enough to avoid needing continuous emptying. Would definately recommend it. 15 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Customer Great quality bin. Sleek & love the 'no finger print' technology. Over all expensive but looks & feels like it will last a long while. 19 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best bin we've ever had Was doubtful about getting a bin of this size given the narrow floor space between the front of our fridge freezer and the kitchen doorway and yet it's just perfect. Generous in height but low enough not to get in the way of the fridge door. Slides effortlessly out of the way when we need to get to the freezer. It was expensive but is well built and should last. Now we no longer have recyclables cluttering our work surfaces and proliferating in smaller bins around the kitchen floor. Will probably be looking for cheaper bags of the right size (if they exist). 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I'd been looking for! I wanted a stylish way to help sort our rubbish into recyclable and landfill, with maximum volume to each half but minimal floor space taken up. This was the answer - the relatively tall bins means they don't fill up too quickly, although I use a separate rush basket for large items. This stands flattish against a wall - not under a worktop - which allowed me to use an unused space in the kitchen. Only thing to watch out for is that no-one tries to sit/perch on it as I think it would buckle with weight on it. 30 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Well worth the the extra money, great capacity. Only downside is the bags are a little pricey. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for recycling A stylish addition to my new kitchen. Large (size G) bins on each side easy to open and close. Neat and tidy and not so technical to operate, just the touch bar which does respond to elbows and knees too! Great refill packs available and came with 10 free sample bags which fit like a dream. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and bigger than it looks Excellent product, good quality and larger than it looks online. If using the separate compartments for recycling/waste then there is no risk of having to empty bags each day, it will last a long time before filling up. Being able to open the lid by tapping your leg/knee against it is very useful if you have your hands full too. 08 September 2015
