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.

Aesthetically Pleasing Trash Can

by KristenK
07/16/2013

This is a great trash can. Seriously nothing bad to say. It was exactly what I was looking for and I'm glad I purchased it. I debated the between the red or the white. Even though I really wanted the red I decided to be more practical and go with the white, since this is a trash can I plan on keeping for a while and because it may even outlast kitchen renovations!

Terrific trash can.. This is our 2nd one for the home. Pls make it indifferent colors. White, red, steel very commercial looking. Bring back cream! Make a blue and/or yellow can for happy colors for the home.

Trach Can that works for me

by MaryH

I have been searching for a white trash can for months. This one fit perfectly: good size, nice design. My only complaint is that it scratches easily.

Beautiful and Built-to-Last

by PaulJ

The Retro Step-can White makes a fine addition to our kitchen. The style and color blend well with the white appliances and white tile counters. The step-can is sturdy. I like the slow-closing lid. Ten-year warranty is a statement by Simplehuman of their confidence in the durability of the step-can. We recycle a lot, and the can holds several days of garbage and non-recyclables. The lid fits tight, which keeps the bugs out and the smells in. I highly recommend this step-can, and Simplehuman products in general. I bought six kitchen trash cans (plastic, steel and stainless), and chose to keep this one. This step-can is worth the $100 price tag: built to last, works well, and nice appearance.

Trash can keeps sliding around on tile floors

by AndrewB
04/09/2012

This can is attractive, and step / lid function works well. The liner has a little 'step' it can rest on for changing bags; simply pull the liner up and you can sort of rest it along this hidden inside step. The bad: this can slides around a lot on tile floors. Everytime you step on the pedal to open it the thing moves a bit. If you try to put it all the way against a wall or other object to prevent it from moving the lid will hit said object once it opens, which will eventually lead to marks and dents. Feedback to simplehuman: put some nice rubber feet on these units to prevent them from sliding around, please.

The trash can I've been waiting for all my ... well, for a while. It's great looking and highly functional and durable. The liners fit perfectly and make it all perfectly simple and endearingly human.

Quite pricey...but truly an example of "you get what you pay for." Does not get stained or absorb odors like plastic bins. So much easier to keep clean. Great match with my white appliances/cottage style. Easy to use...without touching it....so much more civilized!

Good quality, but too big

by RonV
11/14/2011

The item was good quality, but arrived with a dent on one side. I returned it without a problem. But I still would have returned it: it was too tall. It wouldn't allow the kitchen draws to open. They need a white trash can in the 20--23" tall range to hold grocery bags you use as garbage bags. A white, semi-moon design would've been perfect. I found a lot up to 15" high, then a gap, then cans 25" high and more.

Dents Easily

by SeanB

The trash can looks great but the lid dents easily, in the first week I had the can the lid dented twice. It's small dents but noticeable enough.

Love the retro style!

by JRW

Have had the trash can for about 6 weeks now. Very happy with its looks, size, and performance. It's perfect for our retro-inspired kitchen. If you don't have space for a pullout trash bin, this is a great option.

Terrific Trash Can

by DavidC
09/06/2011

Love the retro look! Easy to use, silent lid, wide foot lever, deep plastic liner, etc. The only improvement would be to use non-skid rubber at the base ring so the trash can doesn't slide when you step on the foot lever.
