What if my bins don't fit the cart?

There are many bin sizes supplied by various recycling services. To make sure your bins will fit, please see the supplied measurements and if you are still in doubt, please send us the dimensions for the top of the recycling bins. Usually they are tapered and the bottom is smaller than the top. In order for the bin to fit into the bottom of the cart, we need to have the top measurement.

The 1" pipe is stronger and more durable and particularly well suited to northern weather, while still able to withstand the heat of Florida. We offer a lifetime warranty on the 1" carts.

Are the recycling carts hard to assemble?

No, our carts are very easy to assemble. In fact, it should only take you about a minute to put it together. We provide instructions for you and the carts are also partially assembled when you receive them. We have put the entire top and bottom together already so there is no need to glue anything or be bothered with tiny parts. Still wondering?
