Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plays2Hardball Exactly what we were looking for!
We really enjoyed using the bin that was provided by the local waste management company. Unfortunately the latch that holds the lid closed broke. We were disappointed when we called waste management and were told the bins were an old promotion and they no longer supplied them. We shopped around but were unable to find anything similar. Even our local Home Depot store did not have them in stock. This was the first time I've ordered from Home Depot online and I'll say the experience was very satisfactory. Ordering was easy. We were kept informed via email regarding our order and delivery to the store. Every thing about this order was smoot other than an unnecessarily long wait at the store to pick it up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gardenmaven This product is a replacement for an identical one that had served me well.
This compost pail is convenient for my kitchen. I line it with a plastic supermarket bag. The lid snaps shut and I haven't noticed odors. I do empty it into my compost bin regularly, wash it out with soap & water. Works just fine. It is inexpensive and does the job for me.
It is narrow enough to fit under the sink when I am not using it for kitchen scraps.
The original one lasted a very long time and the item is made in Canada rather than China, a plus.

We have recently began composting and gardening at our home. This collector pail has made it so convenient for collecting kitchen scraps. We probably empty it outside once a week and it does a great job at keeping the odors trapped inside. Its small size makes it easy to fit on the countertop or under the sink. I would recommend this product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JacksWife Slightly better than the last one/nowhere near the original
This is my second replacement for the collector pail we bought YEARS ago, as in over 10; my previous review should still be available on this site.
I have no issues with the color, size, or plastic. This works perfectly for us in a spot under our sink. HOWEVER a compost pail should close tightly! The last one I ordered had a warped lid. Not sure what the trouble is with this one but it takes way more effort to click "closed" than our original, which had a broken handle. And, was beginning to look a little worn out. Wish I still had it, though - now I have two nice handles on two pails that don't really do the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by memo Inexpensive but good looking enough for the kitchen counter
This pail replaces a Rubbermaid kitchen strainer/collector that I bought in 1990 which gave up the ghost. It's good looking enough to sit on the kitchen counter and big enough so that I don't have to empty it constantly. And, the best part is that it was relatively inexpensive compared to kitchen collectors that are a lot more expensive and don't hold as much. My only comment is that the latch takes a bit of finesse. It will be interesting to see the life span as the plastic isn't that heavy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Yellowstone88 Not at good as before
We first had this model compost pail back in 2003 and used it for 11 years before the lid broke. This new pail arrived and is identical to the original pail except that the lid does not close uniformly over the whole pail. This is disappointing as it lets fruit-flies and odors into the kitchen hence the 3 out of 5 stars and Fair to Average rating. Our first pail I would have rated as Excellent.
