So the solution was to look at Brabantia's 2x 30 litre side by side option. But after owning several brabantia's in the past, there's a couple of problems they have with them: the touch lids always break, the steel option can rust, and if you opt for the painted metal they scratch too easily.
I went for a warehouse deal knowing that it would probably be dented. And it was. Too easily dented which indicates two problems: terrible packaging (i.e. a complete lack of packaging) which meant the steel was touching the cardboard box and at the mercy of the couriers who tend to throw them about. Also, I'd wager Brabantia's procurement sourcers have been looking for cheaper steel alternatives making the product more prone to denting.
But I'm going to purchase one of those suction pad dent removers to see if it fixes it.
I can say the bin has solved our recycling problems. 2 x 30 litres with large access entrances with a one touch lid to open the lot. Now that may bug a few people who may not want to lift the entire lid off just to empty one of the bins. Personally I don't mind because having one big lid makes it look more streamlined.
You can buy 30 litre bags from Sainsbury's to fit this bin, so make a saving that way.
Is it worth £189? (I got it cheaper in a warehouse deal), no. I guess their rational is that it is two bins combined, but even if you were pair two 30 litre bins, it wouldn't equate to that price. So yes, they are taking advantage of the market there.
Also, the warehouse deal bin I received actually had been used; it had rubbish in it...amazing quality control there, Amazon.
Anyway, I opted for a pure steel bin this time after my Brabantia painted new icon bin looks like I've owned it for 20 years rather than the 6 months I've owned it.
If you go the steel route, get yourself an e-cloth designed to clean steel. It will save you a whole lot of hassle.
_Solved a recycling problem the other bins didn't
_Get 30 litre bags from Sainsbury's
_Buy an e-cloth to clean the pure steel bin, avoid the painted bins as they scratch too easily
_Wait for it to come on sale because it's likely to arrive dented anyway.
Hope this helps.
The lid has a very cheap, flimsy, feeling action (and sound) to it, decidedly worse that my two previous Brabantia bins.
The lid has to come off before you can take the bins or bin liners out, even though there's no sensible reason for that. It's just a bad design choice.
The inner bins themselves have no carry handles like Brabantia had on their old 30L bins - this means you can't carry easily both bins out at the same time. You're down to trusting the sturdiness (and absence of leaks) of the bin bags themselves.
There's nothing broken about the design, it kinda works, but for the money, and for the brand, it's not a product that delights in any way. It easily could have.
The price is plain greedy, £80 is about right for this. Not £179.
I would say that it's overpriced, wasn't as solidly built as I was expecting, and I'm not sure I'd buy it again. I think there are probably better quality bins for the same money.
