butterfly step can
stainless steel

sku# CW1956

Our butterfly step can has an innovative butterfly lid design that opens from the center for maximum clearance under low countertops. The slim, space-efficient shape makes the most of tight spaces. The strong steel pedal and dent-proof plastic lid with patented lid shox technology ensure the can will function smoothly and quietly for years.

Our code H liner fits this can perfectly — no bunching or slipping for a cleaner trash experience.

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 maximum clearance under low countertops.

internal hinge

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

stay-open lid

The lid stays open for as long as you like — perfect for longer chores.

plastic lid

Won't show dirt or fingerprints.

non-skid base

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

bucket park

For easy bag change, lift the inner bucket a few inches, tilt it toward you, then rest it in the bucket park position.

removable inner bucket

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

replacement bucket available

If your bucket gets messy over time, freshen up your can with an inexpensive replacement bucket.

a simple promise

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

custom fit liners

Our code H 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.

What a load of rubbish!


We all get it and our new Simplehuman swallows it all. This is a very well made product which hopefully will take care of our household waste for many years to come. The on-line service and delivery was first class.

30 litre butterfly step can

by CherylP

Perfect size to fit underneath my center island in the kitchen with butterfly opening. Butterfly opening allows lid to open without slamming into counter top. I looked high and low for this feature with 30 gallon capacity. The step feature is great because it closes slowly and quietly. With a lot of battery operated no touch features I find myself waving my hand impatiently waiting for lid to open. Love this can!! Great score

30 Litre Butterfly Step Can

by LaneB

We really like this trash can. We have two one for trash and one for recycling. The first set arrived banged up from shipment. Simplehuman returned them and double boxed the second set. They arrived with no problems. We wouldn't hesitate to buy again from this manufacturer.

Delighted with this very nice step can, Just the right size, and nice enough looking to be left in a area where it is seen. I give it 5 stars.

Works great and nice looking

by PatriaH

This is a great garbage can. It opens and closes gently and is attractive. We use it in our office break room so it is opened and closed many times. No problems so far.

most practical bin ever

by PeterD

looks like something you want in your kitchen, rather than something you have to have, but is just so easy to use and so simple to empty and change bags. It's a great size too! My best purchase for ages!!
