This 2-Bin Recycle Center is great for several reasons: Its design is simple and pretty inconspicuous (credit the Italians). It has two front-loading compartments, each with a removable 4.25-gallon bin. It's made of durable solid steel, not plastic. Its glossy finish resists fingerprints and is easy to clean. And its small footprint (13-1/4" x 9-7/8" x 36-1/4" high) is perfect for small spaces with storage issues.
$149 at The Container Store.
