Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for campers too! I picked this up to see if it would work well in my pop up camper. Previously I had made do with a grocery bag hanging from a hook, and had looked at some clip on bag holders, but I really wanted something that would minimize any smells, as these other options were lidless. This fits perfectly in my camper. I have a small access panel below the sink and this clips onto it with no issue. I can also move it to a higher flip down door if I need it closer to the top of the counter. I also have an integrated towel bar on my camper door, and it is the perfect size to hang from it as well. This way I can have it outside during the day and while cooking, and move it inside as needed. The quality of the materials is top notch, and the design of the basket allows you to use grocery bags as well as the bags that are made for this trash can. Yes, you will see the sides of the grocery bag when it is closed, but that is a small price to pay when there is such a ready supply of free bags to use in our house. Very satisfied with the purchase. Use a coupon to bring the price down a little, but well worth it. August 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Trash Can Love this trash can...exactly what I was looking for. clips on to the door, no hardware needed...a little sliver of chrome shows on the outside but not's perfectly fine. As others here have said, it does not fit under the sink with the usual 2 cabinets below. So I have placed it inside a cabinet next to my under-the sink-cabinets. This is a wider door and the can fits just right. The can comes with a package of 10 (I think) liners/garbage bags. I find that these don't quite fit...tried stretching them but they don't quite make I line the can with a smaller garbage bag and use the liners for actual garbage that gets removed. Love this product and highly recommend it. June 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solved my problem! I live in an apartment and didn't want to drill into the cabinet. The hanger feature for this trashcan is the perfect solution. It fit perfectly on my cabinet, doesn't hit anything under the sink and looks nice. You can see a small metal part from where it hangs when the cabinet is closed, but it doesn't bother me. It would be nice if it was a little cheaper since it's for garbage, but it's the only of it's kind I could find, so I was willing to pay more than I wanted. August 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unfortunately impractical Good idea but doesn't quite "work." I purchased this trash can to put over the door of my under-sink kitchen cabinet. I have a double door under the sink and unfortunately, when you attach the bin to the inside of one of the doors, and open the door, the bin itself bangs into the other door. This product would only work smoothly on a cabinet with a single door I imagine. I returned it to the store. June 30, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by So Disappointing I purchased two of these beautiful trash cans; one for the kitchen, the second for the master bath. When I was installing the first one in the kitchen, I was so disappointed to discover it would not fit where I had planned; in the cabinet in front of the sink. The trash can is deep enough that it hits the kitchen sink. Same thing in the master bath. I was able to find another location for the kitchen; however, there was no solution for the master bath so I will be returning one of these. {sigh} May 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect size trash can for inside a cabinet! I purchased two of these in-cabinet trash cans a few weeks ago and I put one in my kitchen and the other on my bathroom. They work great in areas where you have limited floor space! March 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cute out-of-the-way trashcan Cute solution for a hidden trash can under our sink! Easy to install (just hang it over our shelving door) and easy to use when throwing away little bits and pieces of food prepped near the sink. Glad it has a lid to keep out odors, too. Small size encourages turnover so nothing stays too stinky. Need to manually lift the lid which is a super minor thing but would buy again. March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit Wow, leave it to Simplehuman to come up with this. Absolutely perfect for those of us who don't need a huge trash can, or have no good spot for their larger stainless cans. With 2 cats and 1 dog to make floor space for food bowls, I had to put away my end of counter stainless can and have a can inside on my cabinet floor. This new in-cabinet trash can is out of sight and not taking floor space. Other plus is it uses the plastic market bags so you don't have to buy specialty bags-but they do make them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect Size This is a great size for daily trash. Thanks to recycling and composting I do not have a need for a large trash can each day. It keeps the smell down not having a large trash bag inside the house. This can is sealed well and the smell is not a problem at all. I am purchasing another to use on a different set of counter/cabinets in the kitchen for when the kitchen gets busy. February 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Suits my needs Two simple human In-Cabinet Trash Cans were purchased in lieu of a traditional trash can due to the space in the kitchen. The fit very well in the space and meet the demand quite well. My favorite feature of this particular trash can can use grocery store plastic bags. December 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super useful and well designed Have been looking for something to use as a recycle bin for small cans and items. This fits the bill perfectly! Hidden away but easily accessible.Well made and easy to clean out. Well worth finding a place in your kitchen to "hide"! December 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scrap stink and drips go here. Very handy just to take care of the yucky stuff, without having to tote it across the floor. Just the right size. Cover keeps the stink in. August 8, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit This is a perfect trash can for me. I live alone and don't want to keep trash in the house for days It's so easy and the bags that go with it are drawstring also convenient and easy February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple Human In or Out Cabinet Trash can Space saver! Fits in my small Greenwich Village apt. February 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Makes Sense in NYC!!! This product exceeds my expectations. I was certain that it would be functional, but I did not expect that it would look good and be so sturdy. It also encourages better green living because it fits with most grocery store bags, so they won't be single use items. Ordering online and picking up in the store is The Container Store's best marketing tool. Once you get in the store, you don't want to leave. It is where utility meets whimsy. December 25, 2013

Will the lid stay open when you flip it up, or do you have to hold it open ?

Asked by: mrmmra
The lid will stay open as long as there are no obstructions.

When you remove the trash can- does the lid travel with the bin?

I need to be able to put "lidded trash" in my apartment hallway for pick- up. If I take the trash can out of the cabinet mount, does the lid travel with the can?
Asked by: Tantely
It doesn't travel with the bin. The lid stays attached to the metal part when you remove the bin.

It says it can be mounted to door - is this with screws?

I don't want the metal "hook" hanging over top of cupboard door. Prefer it to be inside cabinet but need to know how that would attach. Thank you.
Asked by: smricha
Yes but I also screwed a board to the frame of my cabinet then screwed the trashcan to it, that way the screws did not go through the door and is very secure.

How many inches long is the hook? I need the top of the bin to clear the bottom of my sink basin when I close my cabinet.

Asked by: ilmbedstuy
For a kitchen sink, the hook isn't the issue. Instead, you need to be sure the Trash Can is not so deep it prevents your cabinet door from closing. 7.75" deep and in my cabinet, it is the plumbing that is the obstruction; the sink is higher up in the cabinet. For a bathroom vanity, the hook is still not the issue. It is the sink itself. If you are fortunate to have a great big fat basin in your vanity, but do not have the 7.75" clearance between the vanity door and wash basin, this Trash Can will not fit. That is not to say you could not turn it around and wear it "inside out," but I decided I wasn't looking for "that" look. LOL This is an excellent product; well made, easy to use, no tools needed, and handsome, too.

How much of the hanging silver part can you see from the front when the door is shut?

Asked by: kobono

Does your cabinet need to be completely flat to hang on the cabinet door?

My cabinets are old. They have a 1x2 board across the whole cabinet to keep the vertical paneling of the cabinets together. The cabinet doors are not all one piece, so this board that holds the cabinet door together is potential problem. What do you think? I will attempt to send a pic.
Asked by: halban
The inside of the cabinet door does need to be free of obstructions. We would not recommend this solution for your cabinet doors.

what is the minimum cabinet door width needed for this trash can?

Asked by: BarbL
Our in-cabinet trash can needs a minimum of 14 - 1/2" of clearance side to side, 16 - 1/2" vertically and 9" of in-swing depth.

Can it hang reverse?

I would like to hang this from my cabinet out instead of within the cabinet. Can I do this or not?
Asked by: cihelen
Yes, this can should work outside as well as within the cabinet.
