2.3 gal. Pearl White Oval Trash Can is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Size The only places this wastebasket might not work would be Kitchen and Basement/Garage. It's really a great size for just about everywhere else. If you have 5-6 inches of clearance, this basket will fit. I keep one in my bedroom between the bed and my big cozy chair [and ottoman], another in the bathroom under the sink and a third outside the front entry. I have knee trouble and in the Winter, it's often difficult to get to the mailbox rack near the parking lot, so the mail carrier very kindly leaves my mail on my front doorstep [each apt has a private entrance]. With this basket there he can just drop the mail in and it stays tidy and dry, even on snowy or rainy days, until I grab it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great trashcan What makes this trash can great is it is thin. I put it next to my desk in the office and it does not take up much walking space. It is also sturdy and fits in either contemporary or traditonal setting. I would like to get another one if it comes in a darker color for my dark furniture room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product - Hard to find I looked long and hard for an oval wast basket that wasn't too big. I finally found this one and very please with it all around. It's exactly the size I needed and it is very attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect thin waste basket I bought one of these when I had a small bathroom and needed something that did not take up too much space. It is a great design: not too plain, not too fussy. I line my cans with grocery bags, and they fit great in this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small spaces Perfect size for a tiny bathroom -- doesn't look crammed in the small space that I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size for cabinet I needed a small can to fit under my laundry sink cabinet and this fit the bill perfectly! Well made, well priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-minimal and washable This trash can is quite slim and short, so it tucks into very small spaces. I like that it is washable and waterproof--you never know what guests/kids will toss in there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, but holds a lot I use this as a recycling bin in my car. It fits behind the passenger seat, holds plenty of empty bottles and cans for a road trip, and any spills can be easily rinsed out once we arrive at our destination. No more having to throw away aluminum, plastic, and glass just because I can't find recycling bins while on the road!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Made out of nice quality sturdy plastic, Dimensions are as listed on website. I bought these as I have a narrow space in the bathroom and laundry room and it fits perfectly. Just the right height.

Community Q&A

Is this bin dishwasher safe?

Will it melt or be destroyed in a standard kitchen dishwasher?
Asked by: Compost
We do not recommend putting our Oval Trash Can in the dishwasher. Hand washing with dish washing liquid and warm water is recommended.

size of trash bag

I purchased two of this trash can two years ago, I have trouble finding the trash bag to fit them. However, the size of my trash cans are slightly smaller, they are W: 4 and 1/4" L: 10" T: 11 and 3/4" Please if you can tell me how many gallon of this trash can? Thank you very much~!!!! What the size of the trash bag from simplehuman?
Asked by: stevenp
This is a 2.3 gallon trash can. While we don't carry a trash bag that is exactly that size, we do offer one that is 3.2 gallon one (SKU#: 10020284) that would work.
