Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trash Can Ever! This trash can has such a great design, everything from the wall bumper to the foot pedal. I absolutely love everything about this trash can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my daughter wanted My daughter was looking for a new trash can to fit at the end of a counter in her kitchen and this fit the bill. She wanted to get away from all the fingerprints from a stainless steel one she had. Won't know how well it fits until June when they take it to their river house.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good until it breaks It was a great trash can. Lasted eight months, then the foot pedal broke :It just can't seem to handle very heavy use (we are a household of 6). Otherwise it was a good trash can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Garbage Can This garbage can is the perfect size for normal sized trash bags, there's no wasted space when you pull the bag out. I like the wall bumper in the back that helps you push the can flush to the wall but keeps it far enough away that the lid doesn't hit the wall when you open it. The pedal seems sturdy and works well. The lid lock is very strong (somewhat hard to disengage, but it's never gotten stuck). It is made of high quality plastic and the lid closes very quietly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pet Proof! We have a dog, about 40 lbs, who will go through the trash if given the chance. We recently bought this trash bin to to thwart her attempts. So far it has been working great we've had the bin for about 1 month or so. we found she moved it from the wall a few times with out tipping it. she has tipped it a bunch of times and occasionally she will tear up the bag of the that sticks out from under the lid and drags the trash can to our bed room. She knows she isn't suppose to do this but part of it she gets bored and does it. We use to had the same issue with out recycling can getting tipped over but we purchased a shorter bin so she can sniff it and realize the newspaper isn't something she wants, with out spreading it every where. I recommend this trash bin. It has taken a bit of abuse from our dog and is still thwarting her attempts no matter how hard she tries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANK YOU i no longer have to worry about our dog getting into the trash, his favorite thing to do when were not home. Thank you! Keeps smells in and its easy to clean, it even looks classy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great trashcan I love that this takes normal trashbags--not just the expensive simple human variety. My only issue is that the "lock" can be hard to tell if it's on or off, so if you step on the lever when it's locked, it feels like you might break something. Nothing HAS broken, but it makes me a little nervous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! This was a bit of an impulse buy for us. We have a dog who has been getting into the garbage and were looking for a trashcan with a lid that could lock. We found the perfect one! It is large and roomy and bags are easy to get out of it ( a personal pet peeve). Plus, the locking mechanism works great for our nosy dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This, I believe, is one of the best trash cans I have ever bought. I love that the lid doesnt slam and keeps smells in. Also the use of the lid peddle makes it nice when your arms are full and have to throw stuff away without reaching down to open the lid. One of the best features is the locking lid. I have dogs and the new puppy love to explore and if he gets close to the trash can before I catch him he's already exploring what's inside. The locking lid keeps him out and if it tips over, keeps the trash from falling out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ended Dog's Snack Time For the longest time we struggled with our dog getting into our lidded trash can. He would just stick his head in and graze whenever the urge hit him. I was content to stick with the trash can because I couldn't see spending money on a more expensive kind but my husband had had enough. He researched options and came across this one which we ended up purchasing. It opens quietly and closes gently. But most importantly, our dog hasn't had bite from it since we started using it. We did have a problem with the pedal breaking but it has a warranty and was replaced without any trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! The dog can't make a mess. This trash can is exactly what we've been looking for. We have a large dog (standard poodle) who is too smart for our own good. He is very subtle and very fast. Therefore we've often had trash all over our floor as he explored the garbage can. We've tried several types, but he's always figured out ways to bypass our clever ways to lock them. NOT WITH THIS CAN! With a quick and easy (for humans) lock that the dog cannot figure out how to override. It's made our lives easier (definitely a first world problem, but still... You won't regret purchasing this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design but go easy on the pedal We bought this can in August of 2012 for our kitchen. I like the design and operation but the pedal broke yesterday. Thankfully, simplehuman is standing behind the product and sending out a replacement pedal. We are gentle with this can, stepping on the pedal only with stocking feet. Hopefully, the replacement pedal will be easy to install. Overall, it's a great trash can but go easy on the pedal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trash Can! I didn't expect to be as excited as I am for a kitchen trash can. It is a great, large size. The lid slowly closes, not slams shut, which is a nice feature. It looks nice and is very sturdy. I imagine I will get many years of good use out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This is perfect for recycling items. Very easy to lift and move around and enough space so I don't need to empty it every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!! This is the best garbage can I have ever bought! Beautiful style, holds the bags well, and it even locks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Child-proof Trash Bin I'm not usually one to pay over $20 for a trash can but this is well worth the price! The soft-close lid is wonderful: no more loud, annoying slams of the door whenever we toss something out. The step open mechanism is very sturdy and has held up to a year's worth of use with little wear at all. The lid lock is perfect to keep out curious little hands from prying open the bin and keeps everything inside if the whole bin topples over. The plastic is very hardy and hasn't retained any smells from our trash, which is a big plus. Overall, this bin is a very stylish, affordable and practical trash can that's well worth the purchase! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best trashcan ever I never thought I would be so happy with a trash can purchase. The locking lid is a godsend if you have any pets that like to run or bump into things (or eat out of the trash). Perfect size. The liners get a little pricey, but they are super roomy and never tear. The Simplehuman line is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trash Can!!! I bought this last week for our office. It's great. No one in the kitchen area has to touch it...just step, throw in trash & leave. It's great! The opening is wide enough that no one is leaving ucky stuff on the sides etc. I am so glad we got this trash can from The Container Store! Thanks ya'll!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful!!!!!!!!!! I didn't go into The Container Store to buy a garbage can, I went into the store to see what it was all about. While I was in there I started looking at the selection of garbage cans and ended up picking this one. I am so glad I did, a nice touch for my kitchen. Good quality and keeps my dog out of the garbage. Love this product, will buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Helpful Purchase Love a step-on garbage can! If you're hands are full and/or messy step-ons are the best. This one offers all that you need at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective! This plastic can has a reasonable cost to buy and is just about the right size for putting in the kitchen. By just stepping on the step, the can opens up so no need to use your hand to open and close. Design and cost is simple and nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this trash can the trash can sits right up against the wall and closes slowly so you do not get hit with the lid. The dogs and cat have not been able to open the trash can once we put the lock on. At night they like to knock it over and see what falls out they try but give up very quickly and all the stuff stays in the can. Love it. the 13 gallon grocery store bags work fine and its very easy to clean

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Find Great trash can given the price, I'm very happy with it. Only issue is that it slides on my kitchen floor so I had to put some gripper pads underneath it. Otherwise very happy. I really like simple human products.

Is this trash can sturdy?

Can it be easily pushed by a child? Or is it nice & sturdy?
Asked by: ES80
Very sturdy. I put a brick in the bottom because it is a bit lighter being plastic but that’s not a negative thing, it’s a great can and the price is good!
