We've owned this product for over a year and its still going strong. We constantly get asked where we bought it. Cons - The height. Wished it was taller. At the time I could only find this unit which had the dual compartments or buy two of the taller single touch less cans. Pricey Pros - Two compartments. One compartment for trash the other for recyclables. No special garbage bags. We use garbage bags from Costco. Hands free We haven't had the issue where the lids automatically open and close by itself. We did have to do some training with our kids. Our youngest loved to constantly trigger the sensor and open the lid. They're trained now.
