strong steel pedal

Our strong steel pedal is engineered to last over 150,000 steps — that's more than 20 steps a day for 20 years.

silent close lid

Our patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close. When the pedal is depressed, opening the lid, the damper forces air out so the lid opens quickly, then uses resistance to slowly let air back in so the lid quietly closes.

butterfly lid

Split doors open from the center for low lid clearance.

internal hinge

Allows you to place this can right up against the wall.

non-skid base

Non-skid base has rubber pads that are gentle on floors and keep the can steady.

removable inner bucket

Durable inner bucket catches messy drips and lifts out for easy cleaning.


Fingerprint-proof finish resists smudges to keep stainless steel shiny.

a simple promise

We use the best materials and solid engineering so our products will last for years.

custom fit liners

Our code R liners are designed to fit this can perfectly so they don't slip, and they stay completely hidden. Extra-thick plastic and double-seam construction prevent rips and tears.

Love everything about this butterfly step can....especially the size. It is the perfect size for the small space where it was placed. The butterfly lid opens and closes smoothly.

butterfly step can

by DebraO

I love the butterfly step can, it works great and the dog can't get into it.

thank you for your input

perfect for our needs

by DorisB

My husband saw a larger version of this Simple Human butterfly can in a rental unit in London, UK and fell "in love" with it-- luckily you still make it! It's great also that in a pinch we can also use supermarket bags.

thank you for your input

This step can is amazing, fits between my toilet and sink in a small bathroom. Really tidies up the bathroom to have a lidded can, and the liners fit it perfectly. Because the can is fairly long (15.6"), I can easily press it while standing at the sink to e.g. throw away dental floss.

Great for dogs

by CandaceE

We bought this to place in our bathroom. We needed to prevent our dogs from opening the lid and removing the trash. This has worked beautifully and better than we could have hoped for. They haven't "stolen" the trash since we got it. Thank you so much SimpleHuman.

Worth the splurge

by MarieV

I have had a SimpleHuman in my kitchen for many years and love it, and had wanted to get this for the bathroom for a long time. The little cheap step can I had would slide every time I hit the stepper and would ding up my wall. This is a great can because it stays in place, and the butterly lid makes sure pets stay out. Would definitely recommend.

thank you for your input


by KathrynS

I love how quiet the butterfly cans are. I now have all three sizes. If they make a smaller one, I'd buy that too!
