At first I was very excited to have this double trash can because you empty the trash faster before it starts to stink. The bags are only about half full and when you pull out the plastic bags they get caught on the handle of the bin and its hard to tuck a new bag liner into the bin without it showing. I really liked the automatic lid opening feature until we were sitting on the couch in the other room when the lids just started opening and closing constantly without anyone in the room! They have a mind of there own or we have ghosts! Sometimes I will wave my hand over the eye and the lids will not open while my garbage is dripping. If I was to buy again I would select a foot pedal opener with one bigger bin.
