Unique, funky and useful I gave this to my hubby as a gift for our first anniversary - the "paper" anniversary! We both really like it. It is easy to keep clean, and I love that each one is 109% unique. It has held up two years and counting! April 27, 2013
trash as art Unique little trash can with a fun vibe for the house. Great for bathroom, office, or bedroom. April 26, 2013
Buy this in the store I hate to be the wet blanket since the previous four reviewers loved their wastebaskets. Mine is not at all colorful and the newspaper clippings are very lame: mostly white w/ads for make-up, white soup, spray cleaner, etc.. Not at all like the cool wastebasket pictured on CS's website. This wastebasket was intended for a home office I share w/my husband. I have a very large vintage map on the wall, a couple of vintage globes, photos from travel, so I thought the wastebasket would fit well with the sort of global/travel style. Who wants a white newspaper wastebasket with make-up and spray cleaners on it?? My suggestion: buy in the store so you can make your own selection. I assumed all the wastebaskets would be similar to the one shown - big mistake. It's not worth the trouble to return so I will probably move it to the garage. July 22, 2012
For my boyfriend's office We both love it. It looks beautiful and it's the perfect size. I'm glad I got it for him. October 8, 2010

Staff Answer
The outside actually has a light lacquer coating over the paper. So you could clean it with a damp cloth or sponge. We hope you find this information helpful.
