The smallest of these was the perfect size for the narrow space between the toilet and vanity. Closes well. Grocery plastic bags are a little big for it so I wish there were appropriate liners available.

I bought the medium one for the bathroom- fits perfect next to toilet, swing lid makes it very easy to use and the price is right!

Can Collecting Has Never Felt So Good
I was in need of a specific size of waste disposal container. I searched and searched other department type stores; however, was disappointed. Where other stores fell short, the container store delivered! They had the perfect slim sized container I was looking for! Thank you!

My husband is happy now...
My husband asked for a trash can for his bathroom and said that the little wastebasket under his sink wasn't quite right. He wanted something that sits out in the open, but the dog wanted that too. To keep him happy and keep the dog out of the trash, I got him one of these. It's larger than the typical bathroom wastebasket, to keep our little dog out of the trash, and it has the swinging lid so that people can't see what's in it. It's just what my husband had in mind, and it doesn't bother me to see it. My only criticism is that there is no way to tuck the edges of the trash bag in to hide them.

Great size for NYC Apartment
Love the slim design, it fits easily into a corner. It is unobtrusive but a good size for paper trash. I plan to paint it, a review I read said it can be done because the plastic is not smooth but mildly textured. It is so much better that the very obvious can I had before. I was happy to find it- I have been looking for just the right size, volume, and shape with a lid.

I wanted a covered trash can to fit under the extension of the bathroom counter. This is the perfect size and shape. Very convenient to use and empty.

good for price
Got this can for my bathroom and it's great for keeping my cats out of our garbage. Good price for plain can.

Great trashcan for under sink
We had a hard time finding a trashcan narrow enough to fit under our sink, but this one works well. I checked it out on line and then went to the store to purchase it. ( We may or may not be able to keep the swing-lid on the can, that remains to be seen, but it does fit. )

Durable, easy to clean. Very satisfied. I like the big variety of pails at the store and have bought several different ones for other uses.

High quality material, well made product.
Bought this to fit in a narrow, tall drawer - fits almost-perfect (just wish it were a few inches taller - but that's not the bin's fault, it's a taller-than-usual drawer). Impressed by the packaging it was shipped in, sturdy box & wrapped well inside. The quality of the plastic is quite strong and it has a good weight to it. The lid works perfectly, swings with absolute ease, unlike some cheaper, or same priced items at the local store. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Perfect Slim Can - Easy to Customize
We have a tiny guest bath and this can fits perfectly between the toilet and vanity. Huge plus is that it is slightly textured so we were able to change its color by using metallic bronze spray paint to match the rest of the decor. (Slick plastic-type materials are difficult to paint, sometimes even with considerable sanding.)

Works for me
Itâ¿¿s a nice little trash can. Itâ¿¿s slim and the hinged top swings freely. The only issue I have with it is the top is not very secure and pops off at the slightest provocation. My husband placed felt pads along the rim of the lid to act as spacers and that seems to be doing the trick at holding the lid on. The lid issue is the reason for 4 stars.

Keep Trash Contained
I bought this trashcan for my office after the umpteenth time my dog raided it. This trash can works very well to keep her from getting to the trash! A tall kitchen trash bag fits it well (I also recommend the large trashcan "rubber bands" that are sold at the Container Store). It's easy to handle trash removal and fits nicely under my desk.

perfect for under the sink
Remodeled the kitchen and needed a trash can for under the sink. This fits with just enough space for the lid to swing open. The slim foot print is great. The size is fine as our household is composting more and reducing the amount of trash.

Car Trash CONTAINED!
The Container Store wins top prize again! I love the littlest swing -lid can in the car. We have one in each vehicle! All the other moms want to know where I got it from. The car stays tidy even with all the kid- created mess. It is the perfect size and a perfect purpose.

Great fit in a tight space under the sink, I would of loved the next size up but would not fit. Wish they had this in black.

Love this can!
I had to find quickly a new can for under the sink that fit with the plumbing for the new sink. Am not using the swing lid because it won't fit but the base can fits perfectly. Size was most important and I could not be more pleased.

Perfect size and design.
Just what I needed for my teenage daughter's bathroom.

great for under the kitchen sink
I needed a narrow garbage can to fit underneath my sink so the door would still close. This can is perfect for that. I still have pipes behind it and the door still closes. The can is also very firm and sturdy (not flimsy at all)! Would highly recommend this can.

Finally found the perfect trashcan for the bathroom. I purchased the 4.6 gallon for the master bath and my daughter's bathroom, and I purchased the 1.7 gallon for the guest bath. What really sold me was the lid (I hate looking at trash in the bathroom and have never understood why most bathroom trashcans have no lids - ewww). I also really liked that the color was an "off white" and not bright white. It matches great with my SW Dover White trim I have in all the bathrooms.

a trash can that fits!
I am very pleased with this purchase, though it is hard to get excited about a garbage can. Before we were using Trader Joe's paper grocery bags with a catalogue on the bottom for garbage under our kitchen sink, but didn't like having the garbage open. Finding a can with a lid for this specific space was difficult, but this one works, and no more open trash!

Great Bathroom Pail
I searched for the perfect size bathroom pail with a lid. Did not want stainless steel style and needed something to fit in a small place.
This pail is perfect. Has a swing lid, neutral color and tucks nicely in a small area.
Fit the need for me.

swing lid can
can was much smaller than i expected but still does the job. lid fits securely.

Excellent for narrow spaces
Better quality and half the price of the one I saw at a competitor. Perfect for a narrow space between cabinets.
February 15, 2011
i bought 4 of these for recycling and trash in kitchen and bathroom

Smallest one is perfect for my car
The smallest (1.7 gallon) one fits perfectly between the front and back seats of my car (2005 Honda Civic EX). It's easy to reach from either the front or back seat, and the lid keeps the trash out of sight. Also, because the trash can doesn't quite reach the floor, my umbrella still fits on the floor of the back seat (partly under the trash can).

These are terrific, functional and nice style. They do the job wonderfully.

The dog hates it!
Our dog hates this because he can't get into the trash anymore. He used to spread trash all over the house, but now just wishes he could get at it! Thanks for saving me time and effort. Now my trash stays where I put it.

Finally a narrow trash can with a lid!
I have a very small kitchen, and always wanted to put the trash can under the sink to maximize floor space. But I was never able to find one narrow enough to fit around/between pipes and the garbage disposal.
Until this one! Yes, the lid can get a little dirty, especially since it's a kitchen can, but it cleans up fully and easily (no stains). And the lid definitely keeps smells to a minimum.

Great Trash Can
I have 2 of these in my kitchen...one for trash and one for recycle. I love the swing lids, but the lids do sometimes come off. Although they get dirty fast, they are super easy to clean. I have the largest size and they do hold quite a bit. Love them!!
