simplehuman Wide-Step Recycling Bin, 46L

Product information

Wide step recycler with two colour-coded inner buckets (a blue 16L and a black 30L) to separate rubbish from recyclables. The slim profile hinge keeps the lid from hitting the wall, while the patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close.

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 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by We love our bin! After about 2 years of having a shoe substitute the closing mechanism on our Brabantia bin I decided enough was enough, time to splash out, and furthermore to opt for a pedal bin which (hopefully) can't go wrong in the same way touch ones can. My 3 boys and I were all (surprisingly!) very excited to get this, and great to be able to educate the boys on recycling on a day to day basis. BUT a question - can anyone advise on the correct bin liners?? I have checked on John Lewis and the Superhuman websites and am still unclear… we currently use the larger side for recycling, for which we use liners 'G', and the smaller side for rubbish ('V'), but I am concerned that perhaps we are using the liners the wrong way round - can anyone advise, please? 26 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Fantastic product. The size of the two compartments are perfect. The overall size fits perfectly along the side of the kitchen cupboards and is less obtrusive than a large square or round bin. The lid operates smoothly and the bags are easy to change. It was worth the slightly higher price. 20 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant design An absolutely great design, fits beautifully, strong liners and looks great. Well worth the money. 29 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quality product This is a good looking, well made and really useful 2-compartment bin. No problems with dents on panels or lid but they need care.Wipes clean easily & 'soft close' lid is effective. Fairly expensive but worth it. 03 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slimline bin Excellent bin, fit for purpose and the anti fingerprint material really works 14 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Not your average bin that's for sure but it's spacious, very easy to empty and clean and has a lovely soft closing lid. Looks good in the kitchen and doesn't take up that much floor space. Fingerprint free too! 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Slim and sleek It looks great in my kitchen, the most expensive bin I have ever bought but I wanted the look, the two roomy compartments hold more than they appear to. I had to return the first one as it was dented so advise you check at the door, however was changed immediately with no quibbles. Excellent service. 22 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic This bin is great, allows me to keep recycled and contaminated waste separate. Easy to lift out and clean. Shape fits well in kitchen. If you get the bin liners that go with it they are strong and fit perfectly. 04 February 2014
