This 16 gallon Recycle Touchless Trashcan NX model has two 8 gallon separated compartments. One compartment for trash & one for recycle, or one for paper & one for bottles/cans. It uses the latest sensor technology. Simply place your hand or debris about 6 inches away from the infrared sensor on top of the trash can & the lid will open automatically. The lid will remain open if debris or your hand is within the 6 inch range of the infrared sensor. It will close automatically 3 seconds after debris has been released & your hand moves away. There are two buttons to open & close the lid manually, & an on/off switch on the back of the trash can.
Powered by 4 D size batteries or optional AC adaptor (both not included).
Make sure to turn off the power switch at the back of the Lid Unit before opening the Lid Unit to access the inner buckets or change the batteries. If the wheels are installed, the Recycle Center may loose balance when the Lid Unit is opened. Please hold the Recycle Center when opening the Lid Unit or place the Recycle Center against a wall when opening the Lid Unit.
Since this product opens automatically, it may not be suitable for small children or pets.
The sensor on the lid is a bit sensitive as it opens when you pass nearby. Visitors are usually a curious about the lid opening as they pass. I simply explain that it opens automatically anytime it senses trash in the vacinity.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
