Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It! I was needing a trash can for under my home office desk. I chose this one because it is not tapered. My last one was tapered and it kept falling over when it had too much stuff in it. I also like that it can hold a full sheet of paper or a magazine without being crumpled up first or folded in order to fit. This one is working out nicely! January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great simple useful nice looking Very sturdy yet nice minimalist looking. Does not take much space in the bathroom but holds a lot of waste. Somehow not easy to find this in any other store. Great price, too. July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't Beat It! We use this waste can for recyclables. It fits perfectly beside our "trash" can (also from The Container Store) in the cabinet beneath our kitchen sink. I like this new container, because it's white (makes keeping it clean easier than the old, green one); it's taller than the old one (greater capacity, so fewer trips out in the winter cold); and it's easy to grab by the edge and carry out and empty into the county-provided receptacle. What more can you ask of a Modern Feel Waste Can? February 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for under the kitchen sink in front of pipes I bought this to use as a second recycling bin under the kitchen sink, and it fits in front of the drain pipes. For this purpose, it works just as hoped...most wastebaskets are too deep. This was my first purchase from TCS. I was happy to see the note about how the company aims to treat employees well. Refreshing! I took a star off because this container does not have a recycling code on the bottom (most polypropylene containers are recyclable) and it's made in Japan. TCS: It is bad for the environment to ship everything from overseas...the energy used is such a waste. Plus, if you really appreciate people and employees as much as you purport to, you would make containers in the USA. February 11, 2013

Will at paper grocery store bag fit?

I'm looking for a trash can that will fit a paper grocery sack - 7"x12" at the bottom.
Asked by: recycling
A paper bag should fit.

Do the dimensions include the lip of the can, or just the sides? That is to say, does 7.25" x 12" refer to the top or the base?

I need to know if it's going to fit into my under-counter slide mechanism. The "lip" of the can appears to jut out.
Asked by: JupiterHenry
The product's outermost dimensions, including the top lip, are listed as 7-1/4" x 12" x 14" high.
