If you prefer to keep a low profile, you'll appreciate the subtle solution offered by TrashRac. This inconspicuous trash basket can be mounted to the inside of a cabinet or door or even a wall under a sink. A lid keeps contents out of sight and a removable tray catches drips and stores extra bags. Choose to line yours with a continuous, self-replacing roll of TrashRac bags or reuse plastic grocery bags - special hooks on either side were added just for that purpose. It's also a great way to collect recyclables.

  • Includes mounting hardware
  • Bottom tray supports weight of bag contents

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be a stock item Nothing negative about this item. It certainly performs well. My only concern is that this is an item that isn't stocked on the shelves? The only size that's stocked at the stores are 3 gal. Why? Please stock the 5 gal for those who generate a little more garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my sanity Finally found this product to replace the miserable "improved" Rack Sack, which made me angry every time I used it. This system is very similar to the original Rack Sack. Why they changed it is a complete mystery. Love the simplicity of this system; the top stays up by itself, and I can use plastic grocery bags with it. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Money I've Ever Spent! I have redone my kitchen and now there's no place for trash/recycling. I do not have a garbage disposal so I do get stinky garbage. I was ready to bite the bullet and buy an expensive pull out trash can, but the pipes under my sink are weird and I just wouldn't have enough vertical space. I searched the website again and saw this! I am so happy with this. I can scrape the food bits while I'm at the sink. Seriously...I smile whenever I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love both of mine I use two racks, one at my food prep station to take care of all the scraps I create. I often use that one for general around the kitchen trash because with only one person and doing a lot of recycling I only fill a grocery bag a week with kitchen trash. My other rack is under the sink. We are allowed, here, to recycle without rinsing, but there are a lot of ants in the area so I choose to rinse anyway. After you fill the bag, if you fill it full, as I like to, it's hard to get out through the top (well, truthfully I had that problem with my large kitchen trash can, but it was the only way to remove the full bag and sometimes it resulted in rips#. One day as I was fighting to convince the recycling bag to come out without removing anything #even though the bags are free, I like to stuff them fairly full) I realized that the bag doesn't have to come out the top, you can just drop it down and remove it through the front of the rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver in a small kitchen I have a small kitchen and no room to put a regular trash can anywhere. If I didn't have my 3-gallon TrashRac on the inside of the cabinet door under my kitchen sink, I think I would go nuts. It's right where I need it the most and it gets constant use. The bags are easy to change out, and for its size, it holds quite a lot. Also, the price is very reasonable. I've had mine for 18 years! Please don't ever stop carrying this product or the refill bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without this This is my third purchase of this product. I had one at two different residences and just moved. It is the most convenient and inconspicuous garbage solution I can think of. Doesn't take a lot of space and you can recycle all of those plastic grocery and store bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient This terrific in our vacation home. We rent the house when we're not there and this is very convenient for renters. Even though I generally hate plastic bags, this is such an efficient use of the seemly inevitable plastic shopping bags that I don't feel so guilty about getting them when I shop. One design feature I particularly like is that bags fit snugly over the rack and have never slipped off before disposal. The unit itself was a snap to install and, once you learn the trick, adding a new bag is easy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Under Cabinet Trash Can I installed this in my bathroom under the sink cabinet. I've always disliked seeing the trash can next to the toilet or anywhere in the bathroom and this takes care of it for me! Installation stinks though - it took me forever and I'm a pretty handy gal. I agree with another reviewer who said that it should come with a paper diagram so that you can pre-drill from it instead of guessing or drawing dots inside of the door at random. I installed it 3 times before I finally got it correct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved the problem Added a cabinet in the kitchen and lost a good spot for the garbage can. Looked several places for a can small enough to fit under sink with issue of plumbing not allowing much space. Almost ready to give up and found this. Mounted easily, fits perfect, loved the fact has a lid and can probably just use grocery bags. Instructions very clear with pictures. Only three screws to mount was nice Probably not good for families with children but works great for two empty nesters.. Love website, wish we had store closer to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TrashRac We did away with our kitchen trash can because of small children and would drape a grocery bag on the cabinet door under the sink, it was a convenience...then one day while visiting my Aunt I saw her pull open the door under the sink and drop trash into a cute container...we finally found your store in Dallas, those Gals are awesome helpful nice, just loving my hideaway trashrac!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution for a small kitchen After hemming and hawing over getting a good looking stainless (Simplehuman-esque) trashcan, we decided we didn't want to see our trash and could save space by putting it under the kitchen cabinet. This design saves more space by hanging on the door, uses regular shopping bags (no extra cost and a good way to reuse those). We like that we have less trash on hand (less smelly, less pests), and it's hidden. This is a simple construction (and therefore affordable), and comes with everything you need, including a tray to catch any leachate and a storage basket for extra bags. We like it so much we bought a second for the recycling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best buy for small kitchens Not only is it a great space saver but you can put it on a wall or under a desk. Just switch out the bolts. The trash bags included are fantastic as is the fact that you can reuse store bags. Daily trash take out required which keeps the temptation of not taking it out til it is full at bay. Two thumbs up for easy install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silly with Happiness We've kept a grocery bag hanging from a knob in the kitchen for the last year, and as we fill it with empty, crushed water bottles we empty the bag into a larger bag in the garage. It was annoying to have the bag constantly in the way, then.....I found this little number!! The best thing EVER!!! We now have a place behind a closed door where we can throw our emptied water bottles. It was easy to install and is perfect for our needs. I feel giddy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Purchase! Purchase one when we bought a house 14 years ago it finally broke after 9 years but definitely got our money's work. Loved it so much I bought another one. I prefer to have things hidden and no clutter so its perfect. We take garbage out everyday as we do not like to have it accumulate. Now my son is getting his own apartment and he wants one. It will be on of his house warming gifts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but just didn't work for us... This product would have been perfect, Its relatively sturdy, for what it is, and it was basically already put together in the box. We returned it because while it fit on the door for under the did not fit through the opening of the cabinet (I forgot to measure that). I sought this item out because it came highly recommended by a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from compact and out of sight I love that this keeps trash compact and out of sight. Since it is a smaller size bag, it tends to be taken out more frequently so odors are more easily contained. Holder allows bags to hook on so no more bags collapsing into pails leading to a mess. I loved this system so much I bought the small countertop version for food prep and for camping

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hidden Trash Can for Smaller Spaces Since we don't have a lot of extra floor space in our kitchen, and our cabinet under the sink does not have much room, this is the perfect fit. It's very convenient and is out of sight until we need it. I also really like being able to reuse the plastic shopping bags as liners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Into 6th Year Of Use and Still LOVE It! When I moved into my condo, I no longer had space for a big trash can in the kitchen. After looking around at solutions that would fit under my sink, I spotted this one that wouldn't take the entire space on one side and decided to give it a try. I not only have this hanging on the inside of the cabinet door on one side, I have a handy bin filled will cleaning products that I can pull out when needed on that side and still have the other side of the cabinet for a two tier roll out drawer made for under sinks with plumbing pipes for more storage. I have been more than satisfied with my choice. I even installed it myself and it is still hanging! :-) I live by myself, eat most of my leftovers and recycle everything I can, so a bag can last me quite a few days before it gets anywhere near full (or smelly) but I would imagine that even in a family situation, the bag would hold at least a day's worth if not more of kitchen trash if you are a responsible person that recycles cans, glass and cardboard type containers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly great purchase My husband and I could not believe how easy this is to install and how much the bags can hold! This was a great purchase. We both have recommended it to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny This product was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted the smaller bin rather than a larger one. We are a family of 4 and I hate having trash hang around in the house so it gets emptied every evening. I get to reuse my shopping bags so it is a total win win.It was easy to install it does exactly what I need it to do. I am so happy with this item. I would highly recommend this item to anyone that is looking for an under the counter bin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever this trash container is great if you want to hid it in a cabinet but the best is that it doesnt take up storage space since it's attached to the cabinet door. The bottom tray is a great place to store extra bags. i am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Earth friendly, budget sensible I have been using this system for 18 years (original still in use) and it has saved me so much money because I do not need to purchase trash bags. Also, it reuses bags I would otherwise have to recycle! Great product!

is there an actual trash can in it?

Asked by: srdgf
No, you don't need a trash can. This system holds the bag at the bottom very securely, so no can is required.

where exactly are the mounting screws located?

I have shaker style kitchen cabinets, that means the center panel is very thin with a 2 1/4" inch frame all around on 4 sides. Is it attached from two screws on top or what? Whatever I buy has to fit into the frame part of the door.
Asked by: Rhonna
The screws are a few inches in from the sides in the top half of the frame. In mine we had to use a bit of a shim behind one screw hole as one lined up with the shaker frame and the other one fell in the middle section. It's an easy solution though, you could probably even use a piece of folded-over cardboard from the box - it just needs a support to keep the frame from hanging unevenly.

Would it be possible to mount this without screwing holes into the cabinet?

I would really prefer not to damage my cabinet. Would it be possible to mount this using a stick putty or those sticky hooks? Or even some other method that does not involve putting holes in my cabinet? Thank you!
Asked by: HiFaRo
I don't think so, as there's very little of the frame that touched the door that you could use putty on. The sticky hooks MIGHT work, but it would probably be unstable - as it is if you put the bottom of the frame on the whole thing tends to swing a bit unless the trash bag is quite full. And as long as you measure correctly you'll only need a couple of small holes on the inside of your cabinet that should be quite easy to patch later if you ever decide to take it out.
