45 litre
slim step can
stainless steel

sku# CW1969

Our slim step can has a space-efficient shape that fits perfectly in tight spots, like between cabinets. It has an oversized rim designed to grip and hold can liners in place so they don't slip. Its minimal unibody construction requires no additional inner bucket, making it lightweight and easy to clean. The strong steel pedal is built to last, and lid shox technology ensures a smooth, silent close every time.

Our code N 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.

no-slip rim

An oversized rim around the can edge grips liners and holds them in place so they don't slip.

plastic lid

Won't show dirt or fingerprints.

space-saving shape

Designed to make the most of tight spaces.

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.

a simple promise

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

custom fit liners

Our code N 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.

Garbage can

by MaryB

I received this garbage can as a warranty replacement to my previous purchase. They changed the look from polished stainless steel to brushed stainless steel. I prefer the polished look. Also, this is a self-closing can. When you step on the pedal to raise the garbage lid, sometimes the lid flips so far back that is doesn't close. I have learned to press lightly on the pedal and it has solved the problem. If I had to have my choice of cans, I would have preferred the older model but am happy that SimpleHuman honored their warranty on my first can and replaced my broken one.

Great Trash Can

by TaraL

Love this trash can. Have to say I had the older version of this can and it barely made it past 3 years, but simple human was awesome on honoring and replacing the older can under warranty. A truly seamless process. But the new design is way better. and it has the slow shut lid on top of the better design.. Couldn't be happier.

45 ltr, slim step can, stainless steel

by MikeS

Your customer service is excellent. I had no problems with the exchange that I made for my old can that failed to operate correctly due to a broken plactic part. The old can; however, had a plastic retainer ring around the top to secure the plastic trash bag. The new one doew not. I wish that the new one did.
