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.

side handles

Polished stainless steel handles make the can easy to move.

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.

a simple promise

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

custom fit liners

Our code G 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.

Trash Can with Style

by JakubH
05/31/2013

Absolutely one of the best purchases I made. It became a center piece of my kitchen by catching attention of everyone who enters the kitchen. It is very well made and I love the silent lid closing mechanism. Easy to keep it clean and easy to remove the trash bags from inside. Everyone will love it.

I have several red accent pieces in my kitchen and this retro red trashcan fits right in! The can is pretty, functional & fits nicely in the space.

Smart Looking Trash Can

by JoP
08/14/2012

Great looking can which is well built, solid with nice odor control with tight closing lid. Did buy the fitted garbage bags because there was no unsightly plastic peeking from lid when we used the sample bags. It's a perfect size for the kitchen. We like it so much we bought the small version for the babies room - which contains the diaper smell well!

Good product!

by TrashcanO

This is a well designed & constructed product - it appears built to last. I use it on an everyday basis, and I've noticed that the paint doesn't scratch easily despite the lid banging against the wall on a few occasions. Size-wise this is perfect for my needs. Simplehuman also sells trash bags for this trashcan which fit quite well, but I'm hoping that trash bags from 3rd party manufacturers sold at the local grocery store would work too.

The Perfect Hip Trash Can

by AngelaR
05/14/2012

I've always bought cheap, plastic, ugly trash cans, because I hated to spend a lot of money on a trash can. I've cursed them all and finally splurged on a Red Retro Can. LOVE IT! Lid fits well and traps odors. Stylish. Great color! Well worth the money!

Piece of Art

by MelindaA

This trash can is a pleasure to look at. It is easy to use for my three kids. At first I though it might be too small. But after using it for a month I've realized we empty it out just as much as we used to. This trash can seems like it is going to last a long time. It's well worth the money we paid for it.

Great gift idea

by JanetM
03/13/2012

I bought this great trash can as a gift for my sister who has red accents all over her kitchen. It is a fantastic trash can, and my sister just loves it. It looks great in her kitchen corner, and the opening and closing mechanism that makes the top close slowly is ingenious!! The size is perfect and the whole can is extremely well made and durable.

Good size for recycling

by AlexaW
10/24/2011

I got this can to sit next to the garbage can and replace the small, plastic push-top bin I used to use for recycling. This is much nicer, I don't need to push anything (helps if your hands are full), don't have to push the lid closed after, and it closes without a noise. My only small issue with it is that the 30 liter bags I already had (from the old recycling can) are not tall enough to reach the bottom, and I worry heavy items might rip through the bag as they are dropped in. Unfortunately, these bags are specific to our recycling program locally, and I can't use any others. No problems with tearing yet, but I have been careful with it.

Great Waste Bin

by JeanneM
10/22/2011

I bought the product because my kitchen is red and it's hard to find red products (true red, not maroon etc). I really like the product. It's very sturdy, heavy enough so it doesn't slide around the floor with repeated use. The only drawback is it is rather small in comparison to standard waste bins, so it needs to be emptied frequently. Also, because of its size, if you don't use the SimpleHuman bags there is a lot of wasted space after removing the bag, i.e. when using standard kitchen garbage bags.

Nice, well-designed can. However, does not work well with commonly available trash bags.

shipping problem

by MichaelS
09/23/2011

We are very pleased with the product and the look. We eventually had to purchase through Macy's. Originally ordered online from Simplehuman, came damaged. It cost me $83 to ship back two items for which I was only reimbursed $27. It would be nice if your shipping policies matched the product with which we are very pleased.

A practical Fashion Statement

by MarciaG

A love it! It's just as described, operates silently and smoothly, and can use any brand plastic bags. I've only had it a month, so can't testify to it's longevity, but so far, it's great!
