Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT little trash can Ok 99.9% of trash cans are round... this one is OVAL and it fits 8x11 pieces of paper along with other trash, the handle is perfect to carry and to dump items into a larger trash bin for trash day. Sleek and slim perfect for small places in between toilet/sink, desk/wall and bedside. Going to replace all my round bins to this fun design! February 8, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool I originally purchased this for my son to take to college, but I thought it was so cool, I kept it for myself. It is too small for him anyway. I use a regular size grocery shopping bag to line the entire thing. September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this style! The Skinny Can by Umbra is perfect for our small downstairs bathroom. The style looks great, is easy to empty, and to clean. Great buy! July 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit for narrow spot The Skinny Can is truly skinny...fits in the narrowest spaces. I tucked it between the toilet & the wall for a low-profile but stylish addition to the bathroom. Lightweight but well made. Pretty color. February 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by NIce and slim Just needed a slim fitting waste basket in the office space. My color palet is very neutral so this worked well. Perfect price. December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great space saver. What a great trash can for under my desk. Leaves plenty of room and makes my under-desk area look and feel uncluttered. It's nice looking and a good size as well. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect It's cute, functional and it fits. Really glad I made this purchase. March 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very sturdy - very nice!!!! I bought two of these for my bathrooms. May 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trash can I love the shape! It fits easily in tight spaces!! April 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So handy I bought this trash can to use in my utility room, and it's the perfect shape and size. I especially like the little cut out on the end which makes it easy to grab and empty or transport to another location. April 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks good in room Bought the blue garbage can and the color looks the same in person. Perfect size for a nice looking recycle bin. March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Skinny trash can Can fits the space it was needed and matches the color of the room to boot! Good deal all around. February 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great space saver I bought the bin in the beautiful aqua color to go in the cabinet under my bathroom sink. I love the slimline design because it maximizes the depth of the cabinet rather than the width. Had I bought a round trashcan it would have taken up all the space but now I have room to put things along side. I love clever design!! February 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Slim & Modern Love the sleek, slim and modern lines to this trash can. I know, it's a trash can but...I love it! December 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Skinny & Space Saving This was a great compliment to the color scheme for my daughter's dorm room. The sleek style makes it easy to put under the desk or slide in a small space. It's very easy to rinse off and clean but if you can find trash bags to fit the can, I do recommend buying some. September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by SO CUTE! The aqua color is seriously gorgeous! I'm so happy with my purchase. This is going to look great in my dorm room! August 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for tight spaces Love the slim profile of this trash can. Plastic grocery bags fit perfectly inside as a liner, too. If it came with a flip top, it'd be perfect for the bathroom (you know, in that narrow space between the toilet and the wall?). As it is, I just use it in my bedroom, underneath the desk. August 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trash can I love it. The shape is so nice. Holds lots of trash. August 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it! love the shape and color and it fits perfectly in between my cabinet and toilet in our half bath... July 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for odd spaces I wanted to replace the waste basket in my bathroom, which is an odd shape. The waste basket was blocking the bottom drawer of the vanity (because there is no other space that it could fit in) and it became annoying to move it every time I needed to open the drawer. I replaced it with the Skinny Can and it's now occupying the gap between the wall and the bathroom vanity, which is only wide enough to fit it! Also, the handle makes it easy to pick up and change the trash bag. I'm giving this 4 stars because the opening is quite narrow compared to a standard size waste basket & trash sometimes rebound & fall onto the floor. But, this is something that I'll have to get used to & I'll have to change my habit of tossing trash, lol. All in all, this is a great solution for odd and/or tight spaces! June 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smaller than expected The waste basket is really small. Even though I read the dimensions it just seemed like I was going to be getting a bigger item. It's in my son's nursery and luckily he's not making a lot of garbage yet so it's great for right now! May 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trash can Perfect size for the office or bathroom. Great colors and we love the clean design. We got 3 so far and plan to get a few more. May 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Utility Can Purchased this can for use in a tight space as a laundry room trash can. It works great. Gives me a place to put lint, etc. without taking up too much space in an already small room. April 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by cute and mod this fits great between the counter and toilet, it's sleek and modern, and the blue provides a great shot of color - love it! April 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for a small space Great product for the price. Fits perfectly in the narrow space between the toilet and the counter. I loved how it looked, so I bought two more for other places in my apartment! April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by practical and affordable Trash can was very affordable yet attractive and practical... looks great anywhere March 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loving It !!! The space under my bathroom sink was limited. This product fits a narrow opening and is still big enough to hold enough trash. The colors are beautiful and I love the handle slit. I'm definitely happy with this purchase. March 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfectly skinny! My bathrooms in my house are small, especially the guest bathroom... This trashcan fits perfectly! I love it. Since I'm extremely limited to where I can even place a can, this one is perfect. Thanks container store!!! :D March 25, 2013

What color blue is the "periwinkle"?

Just bought some blue desk accessories from Cont Store. Is this wastebasket close to navy? or close to a light blue?
Asked by: Dormshopper
The can is closer to light blue, but had a purple tint.
