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.

semi-round shape

Space-efficient semi-round shape is great for high-traffic areas.

stay-open lid

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

large capacity

Ideal for large families or busy households.

a simple promise

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

custom fit liners

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

This is the perfect can for our deck. It doesn't fill with water because of the tight fitting lid. Just love it!

Great product

The step can was exactly as advertised. We've only had it about 2 months but are very happy to date. The minimal increase in price between department store cans and this can is worth it.

Happy to have it!

by DonnaS

Got this to replace an oval, roll top plastic trash receptacle that served us well for years. It needed replacing but could not find another like it in local stores. Having no luck finding the same or similar type online, came upon this one and decided to give it a try. With the flat back, it fits perfectly at the end of the kitchen counter. Step peddle & self closing lid are a welcome plus. It was more than I intended to pay for a trash can but it seems very well made and I am happy to support "made in America"!

note from simplehuman

Thank you for your positive review. However, we do want to clarify that although all of our products are designed in Torrance, California, they are manufactured in either Taiwan or China.

I've had it for a few weeks now - so far, so good. Holds plenty, regular 13 gallon tie bags work great. The lid closes slowly and smoothly.

Perfect for kids till pedal broke!

by RebeccaV
01/19/2013

We love this trash can, especially the locking feature with kids! Although the pedal broke in just 2 years. I tried to glue the pedal back together but it doesn't work. I've even bragged to my friends about this trash can. :(

loved it until the pedal broke!

by echelleechellecaldwellC
01/10/2013

we bought this particular trash can because it locks. We have a 70lb. dog that loves to raid the trash while we sleep, so that is mainly what prompted our decision to buy it. I'm a nurse so the hands free pedal was a plus, until it broke after having it only7 months. we bought it in May 2013, I'm disappointed that for the money we spent, it broke so soon. Now we have to lift the lid with our hands and that is just yuck! want to buy another one, but afraid the same thing will happen.

Broke in less than 1 year

by CynthiaW
12/22/2012

First, one piece of the pedal broke--happened after 9 months of use. It still worked but then, of course, the other connection point on the other side broke, too. So, in about 18 months, the pedal no longer worked and you had to open the cover with your hand. Yuck. I did love it while it worked, though...

high quality

by BrookeO
10/03/2012

This trash can is great and is a high quality product. I am partial to stainless so wondered about the plastic but it is a deep black with stainless handle and step bar that look very nice. The self closing and hands-free features are a real plus and work very nicely. Keeps the dog out of the garbage and also keeps fingerprints off of the lid. The free bags that came with it are heavy duty, however, bags from the store fit just as nicely. I have no complaints of this product. My boyfriend is looking to buy one now.

Works great so far

by RonH
07/17/2012

I got it to replace a Walmart square plastic can with swinging door lid that turned out to be a piece of junk. I had 2 of those, and the lids broke on both. The Simplehuman 50 liter black plastic can works perfectly so far, and it looks good out in my kitchen. I especially like the ability to open the lid with my foot when both hands are full, but I'm also glad that it is easy to open with my hand and that you can make the lid stay open when necessary. A 13 gallon "tall kitchen garbage bag" fits just fine. However, the ones with strap ties built in work better than the ones where you just tie flaps to close them ("simple tie" style), as the flaps tend to show from under the lid when it is closed. I have not tried the Simplehuman brand bags yet, but I'm sure they will work great as well.

by RickT

this is a great trash can. i had it in white, but when i moved, i just had to get it in black to better match my new kitchen. it keeps my little boy out of the garbage but is still easy to open for me. had the white one for 2+ years and now use it as a spare in the garage and still holds up great!

Sleek Design * Durable * Easy To Keep Clean!!

by NaomiK
06/26/2012

PROS: I absolutely love the look of this pail! It's not like the cheap pails you see at HomeDepot or Target it has a textured finish, so fingerprints and smudges are resistant. It's very "SIMPLE" to keep clean. My Stainless was a nightmare to keep clean and if it wasn't polished, looked like garbage (no pun intended)! The stainless steel accents make it look so much better then your average black pail! By all means, it is not cheap looking at all! It may be slightly more then the pails you find at your local retail stores, but remember the old adage: "You get what you pay for!" This trash can is VERY well made & will probably last for decades!! The lock will definitely keep your pets or little hands from getting inside! It's a great feature for piece of mind! This is one looks great especially since all stainless steel appliances have black around them, this one matches perfectly without making it the center of attention! The shape is different and gives it that contemporary appeal! It's absolutely the best pail I've ever owned! Cons: The ONLY problem I have with this pail... Store bought pail liners barely fit and can come undone if not placed in just right! I feel Simplehuman does this on purpose to market their own trash liners. Which is a bit sneaky in my book and they're way to pricey when compared to store purchased liners. A stand-up company would warn you of this BEFORE you buy!! You can purchase the glad bags that have the elastic grip openings or if you purchase others make sure when you place the bags in that the bottom seam runs east and west in the pail. (long-ways) and it should stay. If not, just purchase black garbage bags! EVEN IF I knew the con ahead of time, I would still have purhcase it anyway. The pros definitely outweigh out the cons and I get a ton of compliments on my TRASH CAN!! I LOVE IT!! Hope this helps! : )

Worth Every Penny

by CherylM
06/25/2012

This trash can is absolutely solid and perfect for my needs. I used to have a stainless steel version, but decided to purchase the black plastic because the stainless steel was hard to keep clean. This one is great because it is easy to use and is extremely easy to wash and wipe down.

I love that this trash can is easy to clean, HUGE, made to last and looks great in our house. I had a trashcan with a lid you had to lift with your hand before and the step makes it so much easier and more sanitary. Regular size 13 gal trash bags fit perfectly!!

Excellent for pet lovers

by JoyceF
05/22/2012

I have two cats that love a challenge. Closed doors? No problem. Cupboard doors? No problem. Trash can? Easy open - at least up until now. Finally a locking trash can that can still be opened with one hand. It's big enough to hold a week's worth of trash, yet not bulky or in the way in a small kitchen. I love not having to worry about coming home to trash all over the floor and shredded trash bags. Thanks for the great product.

Best Cat proof can ever!!!

by EdH
05/14/2012

The best of all is that my cat can't get into it. We have tried for over 10 years to cat proof our grabarge can. No matter what I did "Max" figured it out. We had to put it in the bathroom and lock the door every night and if we forgot, he would climb into it. The BEST investment we ever made. The size is perfect, the step pedal works great, and it very well made. Would HIGHLY recommend it!!!!!!!

Nice Trash

by ErinC
02/27/2012

I really like the self-closing feature so it doesn't slam. I use it many times a day. The size is good for my kitchen and it is made well. It looks nice and fits the rest of my kitchen theme. My only complaint is that it does not rest flat against the wall. The back part sticks out well past the bin and I wish it was flat so it would rest against the wall nicer.

Good quality, economical price. ( Do not buy any of the step lid trash cans that Walmart sells, other brands are cheap but junk) Simple Human makes a quality product I would buy again if need be.

Awesome trash can!

by CharC
08/02/2011

The main reason I was interested in this trash can was the slide-lock feature that prevents pets from getting into the trash. IT DOES! I can now leave my Corgi and frisky feline at home unattended and trust that I won't come home to a kitchen filled with overturned garbage and two guilty looking culprits. This trash can looks great in my kitchen and the "slow to close" lid is very cool! This is an awesome trash can and a wise purchase.

Trashiest Can Ever!

by LaJ
05/12/2011

Overall super happy with its function as a trash receptacle. It is well constructed, and I like how it has a self closing function. Super easy to empty and replace liner. Also, you do not have to use the simple human trash bags with it, regular large kitchen trash bags work great as well.

My wife and I bought this trash can to replace an expensive, but wrecked aluminum one. It's worked out really well - quiet, and the shape allows the garbage bag to be completely filled, which has allowed us to save on bags. It is in daily use, and we're happy with it

better than stainless, quiet, lockable

by LisaL
04/29/2011

I have gone through two other metal, step trash cans that were twice as much as this one. They did not last. We are six, and our can is out in our kitchen, up against the island (half round shape) and gets used constantly. The easy to use lock keeps the dog out when we aren't home. The opening/closing is silent, unlike metal can's I've had that close with a "clang." Very sturdy, easy to wipe down. I love my trash can. Just fits a 13-gal bag without a bunch of extra hanging over the edge, fits tight and doesn't slip.

by JoeS

I love this can.. It's really strong and looks as if it would last years! I love the way it opens with one step and locks so my toddler can't get in. But its not a regular size and the garbage bags that they sell at the stores won't fit nicely...
