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.

lock the lid shut

A slide lock securely locks the lid to help keep pets and curious children from getting into the trash.

space-saving shape

Designed to make the most of tight spaces.

stay-open lid

Dent-proof plastic lid keeps trash covered but stays open for as long as you like — perfect for longer chores.

built-in wheels

Built-in wheels make the can easy to move.

a simple promise

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

custom fit liners

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

Lockable White Garbage Can

by JessicaM
04/17/2013

The locking mechanism on this garbage can is great! It has solved our problem with the dogs getting into the garbage perfectly and is still easy enough for our 5 and 7 year olds to open. The can wasn't as slim as our previous garbage can which makes for a tight fit in the area we have for it. It is slimmer in back and wider in front. I wish it would were the same slimness all the way around. All in all it's a great product and we are very happy with it.

Trash can

by LindaD

Good product, well-constructed, easy to use, fits in a small space, good-looking. Best of all it doesn't open every time someone walks by - how old-fashioned!!

Great Cans

Wish I had gotten two colors instead of one (1 for recycling and 1 for trash, trash). Use it every time I'm in kitchen. Love its size. Very durable and looks nice in kitchen.

Couldn't be happier

I was looking for a trash can that was slim enough to fit in a narrow slot in my kitchen and one that my dog couldn't get into. This one is perfect and it looks very sleek also.

thank you for your input

Nice design

The step-on lid mechanism works very well -- smooth open and close. Having wheels makes it very functional for the kitchen...or anywhere.

Dog Proof Delight

We love the lock feature...keeps out the family members lacking opposable thumbs. Trash bags fit snugly so they stay in place perfectly even when full.

It fits in tight spaces!

by GraceW

We had difficulty finding a trash can that would hold enough trash for a day but would also fit into our tight space. This one is perfect. Designed to be tall and narrow, it is a perfect fit and, may I add, pretty.

thank you for your input

Great customer service--great product

by SherryS

I needed to fit a can for trash and a can for recycling in a small space. These cans fit perfectly. And I have a big dog who likes to check for goodies in the trash when we leave the house. The locking lid solves this problem. One of the lids didn't lock but one email to customer service got a new one in the mail to me. No hassle and no charge. I'll definitely choose simple human products again!

Good choice

I love the slim design, and the hands-free opening of the lid. It is durably constructed, looks good in my kitchen, 13 gallon trash bags fit perfectly. I highly recommend!

The can is well designed and opens easily with the foot pedal. The white color is a nice neutral in our kitchen.

Cool Trash Can

by SteveF

Like the shape and compact size-fits into small spaces. Also like the wheels which make it easy to move around. Foot-operated lid keeps any potential odors in the can.

I bought this trash can because of the locking feature. Keeps my cats out of the trash can. Very durable and looks great.

Terrific kitchen can. Slim design but holds more than my previous round garbage of the same height. Uses standard size bags. The lock has kept our black lab out of trouble.

Great Size Trash for Kitchen

by LauraC
02/27/2012

I bought this trash can because it is long and narrow, which works well in my kithen. It's very durable and good looking. The only flaw is that it moves across the floor when you open the lid. Not a lot but enough that you have to re-situate it periodically. I'm not sure if it's due to the fact that it has wheels or not. I still like it and am experimenting with putting mats under it to see if it will stay put.

thank you for your input

Top Quality!

by KarenW
12/14/2011

I wouldn't have believed that I could get so pumped up about a wastebasket, but this beauty is absolutely exquisite. It's sleek, extremely well-made, and the technology they call "lid shox" allows the lid to close absolutely noiselessly. I just wish they offered it in more colors....I'm spoiled now and I want one in every room!

thank you for your input

Great trash can for tight spaces!!

by LaurieP

Great trash bin for narrower spaces. Very well made and love the soft close feature (our grandaughter loves to watch it close after putting trash in it). Fits regular kitchen trash bags and love the wheels for ease of moving around. Am glad I purchased simple human over cheaper rubbermaid one. You won't be disappointed!

thank you for your input

...and it has wheels!

by WendyW
10/24/2011

The perfect trash can for my kitchen. Fits the limited space; looks good; sturdy; easy to clean; lid stays up if I want it to - closes if I don't; doesn't slam shut and it has two wheels at the back! It can be easily moved to anywhere in the kitchen I happen to be working. Good value too and easy to put together - which would be to attach the lid.

Best Dog Proof Trash Can

Perfect size and shape, this trash can keeps even my 100 lb Lab out of the garbage.

best trash can ever

by AmandaJ
08/03/2011

I love this trash can. It's very sleek and stylish, looks great sitting out in my kitchen. The chrome accents really set it off, and it's easy to wipe down if it gets dirty. We have 2 dogs and the lock on the lid is great if they try to get in there. But my favorite part, the lid opens quickly, and then slowly lowers. It has the features and presence of a high dollar stainless fancy trash can, but the price tag for plastic. I bought one for my mother-in-law as well!

Dog blocking miracle!

by LisaM
07/05/2011

We spent years trying to remember to put our trash can away in a locked room every time we left the house, but we forgot to do it about 20 percent of the time. No more with this great product from Simple Human. A quick latch of the lock and no more messes to clean up when we get home! The dogs have twice managed to drag the trash to a different room but have not had any success in breaking open the locked lid. I so wish I would have found this years ago. It would be a bargain at twice the price! Also it is slim and fits nicely in the small space we have for it. I like that it opens on the narrow part and not across the wide side.

My dog would get into any and every trash can I bought... until this one! Now I hear her trying to break in, but having no successes, which gives me a big smile.
