A true waste of my money
on 15 September 2014
This bin is really poor quality. We bought this less than a year about for £60 and expected it would be a quality product. However, there are several things wrong with it:
1. When you push the peddle it gradually moves back toward the wall and continues to rub against the wall marking the paintwork. The only way to stop this was to put sticky felt pads on the back of the bin to stop it rubbing. It still works its way up the wall a little so it is always slightly sloping.
2. The quality of the plastic interior is terrible. After less than a year both frames for both sides of the bin are broken (snapped) thus meaning that the inner bins (recycle and normal trash) fall down and don't fit properly, thus the bin liners fall out and are useless. Once they fall down it is very hard to remove the bin for emptying.
I nearly bought a more expensive bin when I purchased this one but thought it looked fine and they'd taken the time to provide many different photos and it was the right size. However, now I've got to throw this one away and will end up buying the more expensive one anyways.
