I have a script modified from various other scripts to match what I need.  Check the attached code.  I'm trying to Sort Recoverable Items Size by size in Descending order.  However I'm not getting results from big to small.

The below script works fine if I sort "Total Item Size (MB)".

$mailboxes = @(Get-Mailbox -Filter "RecipientType -eq 'UserMailbox'" -ResultSize 20)
$report = @()

ForEach ($mailbox in $mailboxes)
    $mbFolderStats = $mailbox | Get-MailboxFolderStatistics | where {$_.FolderType -eq ‘RecoverableItemsRoot’}
    $mbStats = $mailbox | Get-MailboxStatistics | Select-Object DisplayName, @{name="TotalItemSize (MB)";expression={[math]::Round(($_.TotalItemSize.ToString().Split("(")[1].Split(" ")[0].Replace(",","")/1MB),2)}},ItemCount,TotalDeletedItemSize
    #Select-Object DisplayName, @{name=”TotalItemSize (GB)”;expression={[math]::Round((($_.TotalItemSize.Value.ToString()).Split(“(“)[1].Split(” “)[0].Replace(“,”,””)/1GB),2)}},ItemCount,TotalDeletedItemSize -First 50

    $mbObj = New-Object PSObject
    $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Display Name" -Value $mailbox.DisplayName
    $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Folder Path" -Value $mbFolderStats.Name
    $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Recoverable Items Size" -Value $mbFolderStats.FolderAndSubfolderSize
    $mbobj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Items in Folder" -Value $mbFolderStats.ItemsInFolderAndSubfolders
    $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Total Item Size (MB)" -Value $mbStats.'TotalItemSize (MB)'
    $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Item Count" -Value $mbStats.ItemCount
    $mbObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Total Deleted Item Size" -Value $mbStats.TotalDeletedItemSize
    $report += $mbObj
$report | Sort-Object "Recoverable Items Size" -Descending
