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.

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.

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.


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 J 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.

30 Liter step Can

by DanteR

Works perfectly. No smell gets out, Looks good. Very smart design. Keeps our dogs out of the garbage but doesn't stop us from easy use.

thank you for your input

Love it

by LauraL

Love absolutely love my simple human trash can easy open easy close .

thank you for your input


by LloydB

Very attractive, ideal size for intended location, and it works well. Plastic trim around foot pedal protects metal from careless operation of pedal. Very expensive, but features and warrenty make it worth it.

thank you for your input

Yeah, yeah......we know it's SUPPOSED to be a trash can, BUT.......

by PattiV

We use it for recycling because our recycling is bigger than our trash. We love that it has a pull out insert so we can carry it to the recycle bin in the back alley. We love the perfect fit of the bags. Hubby thought it was too much to pay for a recycle bin. Now he accepts that his wife was right again.

by lynB

never thought i could get so excited about a garbage can but this is the best made, practical, convenient can i've ever had. These people really know their garbage. love the quiet close lid that goes down slowly enough that it doesn't close too soon and if you need to keep it open for a big clean up, it has a nice strong orange easy to find lever to do that. And then there's that nice little ledge inside that makes it so easy to change the bag. I'm impressed. Would definitely look for Simple Human products in future.

30 l pedal bin

by IanS

Great bit of kit. Neat enough to fit under worktop and leave room for lid without it banging against it every time you open it,yet it holds same amount as previous bin. Don't have problem of smells as some others. Would recommend and 10 year warranty a good buy.

thank you for your input

trash can

by williamG

I like the new features that were not on my old trash can. I am very pleased with my new one.

Okay Can

by tttT

Nice can but only comes in brushed SS and the feet are sticky so it's very difficult to move around on the floor without picking it up. Otherwise it's great.

note from simplehuman

Thank you for your feedback. Please note, the rubber feet are placed on the bottom of the can to prevent it from sliding around while it is in use. Feel free to give us a call at 877-988-7770 (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm PST) should you ever need help with any of our products.

The best kitchen trash can I ever had

by MiriamL

It may seem strange to get so much pleasure out of a new trash can, but I will admit to potential buyers that I'm so glad I found Simple Human and bought this item. It works beautifully and looks great. I bought the bags for it too and they are the strongest, best-fitting bags I can imagine. Do yourself a favor if you don't like your current trash can and get this one. It's perfect.

Good product but why double the price in Australia?

by StuartB

US price $99 Australian price $199 (and that is on sale and A$1=US$1.04) Original price $259 = US$268 I understand shipping charges, import duty etc. but $$169 dollars extra? 160% markup! get real!

by LoriD

I purchased this trash can approximately 2 1/2 years ago. My fiance thought I was crazy spending $100 on a trash can. I love the trash can but the plastic lid has cracked on both sides and now has fallen off completely. We're two grown adults - no children - so it isn't getting overused or abused. I'm disappointed because I thought it would have lasted way longer. It is possible to get a new lid? Is it difficult to install?. I loved the fact that I didn't have to touch the lid when throwing trash away but we honestly and unfortunately can't afford to spend $100 for a new simplehuman trash can. Is there a way for this one to be fixed? Are there better quality lids - maybe one that's not plastic so it won't crack?

note from simplehuman

Thank you for your feedback.  We stand behind our products and a product specialist will contact you shortly to assist you with this matter.

Just what I was looking for

by KateW

This is a sturdy, well-made, and attractive garbage can. I like the slow-closing lid, the removable interior bin, and the ability to lock it in the open position. It fits in great in my kitchen.

Yes, I'm proud of my garbage can!

by AnitaB

Although I struggled with the high price of this item, I'm glad I took the leap! The quality is great, it works beautifully, is just the right size for a typical household, the finish is amazing, no streaks or smudges after a simple wipe, unlike usual stainless steel, the bag is so easy to replace because of the superior design, closes so quietly. Just love my new garbage can, thinking of leaving it to my favorite person in my will!

by AmandaL

I had wanted one ever since I saw it in the container store. Its good looking and easy to use. I like the park feature although its easy to overlook, you just have to get the hang of it. Best thing is the ease of changing the bag. The custom fit bags are awesome, but it works great with regular bags too.

Best Can I Ever Owned

by RogerH

Once I purchased my recent and newest home it took me a minimum of 4 months to choose the right can. I went to practically every retail physical store in my area and none fit the design and space I had selected for the can to occupy. Enter Simplehuman and found my can which the lid closes on its own and the can never has an odor inside. Plain and simple-I love it and for me it is the perfect can. Respectfully yours, Roger J. Hourihan, BS, AS, ATA, ATP

thank you for your input


by TM

Love the whole thing - I mostly recycle/compost, so size is perfect for what little trash I have. Love the solidness of it, the lid mechanism is very smooth and the slide button that keeps it open for longer tasks is great.

thank you for your input

awesome product!

by ToddH

Looks great, very solid, innovative design. My one year-old can't tip it over... or get into the bag to pull it out. That alone is worth the price.

Simply Great

by RobertT

Have bought and used Simple Human cans before (still do) seem to never wear out. Our newest one (7 years old). This new one just arrived today, perfect right out of the box. Get what you pay for, well worth the price. Fits in our remodeled kitchen beautifully. Wife really likes it,(I took full credit on that). Considering how long they last the cost is a real bargain. You can't go wrong with this brand

New Kitchen Can

by KarenL

I love the appearance, quality, size, and quiet operation of this trash can. I'm using a standard 24" x 24" trash can liner with no difficulty. I am able to position the can mere inches from the cabinet side because of the design of the lid, saving space in my compact kitchen. Well done, simplehuman!

fantastic trash can

by AliceW

Love this sleek, modern, stainless steel trash can! It's very functional and well constructed. The best part is the foot pedal, which makes the trash can completely hands free when you are trying to throw away stuff. Outstanding product and I highly recommend it!

NYC Trash Can

by KurtB

Like the slim design; hidden bag; and no fingerprint stainless steel. Wish everything else in the kitchen was so simple.

thank you for your input

Sleek & Strong...awesome!

by DanaW

We now have 2 simplehuman trash cans...because the first one was so great! Favorite Features: 1)The Lock that allows the lid stay open while I cook...providing easy access. 2) The Pedal that allows hands free opening. 3) The removable liner...for easy bag change. 4)Perfect Height..even with the lid open. 5)Classy...don't have to hide them. We have actually received numerous comliments on our trash cans! We placed them at the end of our island, and labled one RECYCLE. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE TRASH CANS!

thank you for your input

by DeniseD

Looks great in my kitchen and absolutely love it.

Great Can

by JoH

Great looks. Easy to clean. Easy open. Easy removal. My only complaint is the difficulty of placing trash bag inside. If you can afford them, the trash bags by simple human work best. Otherwise it takes coordination to place trash bag inside. Overall a great product.

thank you for your input

Cleanest Trash Can!

by NormanW

As with all of the products that I have purchased from SimpleHuman, this one's just terrific! The surface always remains clean and tidy, the lid closes ever so slowly and it's extremely well constructed.

thank you for your input

Wonderful product

by NanetteS

This does exactly what it is supposed to do. The lid closes tightly to contain any odors and it closes quietly. We had a funny moment at a recent holiday gathering when a guest spent several minutes opening and closing the lid just to see it slowly, quietly close. In short, I am very happy to have purchased this and look forward to many happy years of use.

thank you for your input


by JasonD

This product seemed perfect in looks and function, but, a few months after purchase, it started making a horrible. moaning noise when the lid closes. No amount of WD-40 helps. Our neighbors (who purchased the same product for their identical unit) have exactly the same problem

Great Trash Can

by Diana

I bought 2 cans, one for regular trash and a smaller one for recycles. I like the size and the self closing lid. It looks great but recently the lid began making a strange noise when it closes. We can't figure out what's causing it. It's a very noticeable noise and its becoming annoying. Other than that, I really like the look and functionality of the cans.

note from simplehuman

We're sorry to hear about the noise on your can. We do stand behind our products 100%. A Customer Service Representative has contacted you to assist you with your problem

I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. This is an excellent, well-made product that performs its function perfectly.

perfect size for the space

by NormaS

Blends in with our brushed stainless steel appliances. Size is perfect for our needs. I like that the trashcan fits flush against the wall. Easy to clean.

by RayO

Very satisfied. No noise and easy to clean.

thank you for your input


by MR

The size is perfect to place and open under the counter. It's lovely to look at, very quiet, no finger prints, east to change bags and engineered well to last a long time.

thank you for your input

Awesome Product!!

by DavidZ

The trash can is constructed very well. It features a lock to keep the lid open when changing bags, a removable inner pail with bag holder so the bag stays in place and air vents near the bottom so when you remove the bag it lifts out easily. The soft close lid is also great and probably the best feature. Highly Recommended!!

thank you for your input

Best buy

by LucieF

I purchased a rectangular step trash can – 30L / 8 gallon brushed stainless steel from simplehuman. I am impressed with their customer service from the order process, to excellent packaging and very fast delivery. This is an exceptionally attractive and functional product and well worth the price.
