White 13.7 gal. Big-Box Swing Lid Trash Can is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Trash can is universal for kitchen and office use. Slim design and easy assemble. Fits great in my small kitchen as others didn’t. Swing lid comes in handy for items that required two hand use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Uneven construction with hole in the bottom I was skeptical after assembling the trash can to find a hole at the bottom of the can. Why would the manufacturer place a hole in the bottom of a trash can? Why is that not explained in the product details? I was thinking this is not going to be good if the trash bag breaks. On the second use the can, the recommended bag broke and liquids leaked out onto my floor. After cleaning the floor and the can, on my third use I lined the trash can with newspaper and placed newspaper on the floor where the can sat. This was a lovely attraction for my guests during the holidays. I am extremely disappointed in this product. Besides the hole, the can is unsteady and poorly constructed. The 15 gallon trash bags recommended were thinner than those from my food store. I gave the item One star as a rating was required however I would give it zero stars if I was able.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with the trashcans I bought 2 trashcans to fit into our cabinet next to the fridge, one for trash and one for recycling. Fit perfectly and love how it has a ring to keep the bag in place. However, it is hard to find bags to fit the trashcans since these are tall and thin. The Container Store is the only place that sells the right size bag; it is around $5 for 15 bags. Since the bags and cans are large, they last almost all week before I need to change (family of 4).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek & Functional I bought 2 to replace our old kitchen trash cans from this manufacturer, as they fit perfectly in our kitchen. They have improved the design and the metal rod is now enclosed, so it won't slip out accidentally. I love the taller style as it keeps our dog from investigating last night's dinner :) Also the black lid looks nicer than the old version. I love the push down lids which are better than step cans in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent trash can For the price, it is a great trash can for our small office. We had certain parameters we needed -- we couldn't use a foot lever because our trash cans sit on the bottom of a shelving unit, we didn't want an open can for fear of smells wafting out, we didn't want a sensor lid because we have broken two of those already, we didn't want a can that required it's own special bags because we go through them too fast, and not too expensive. This fit our needs quite well. It is a nice, sleek looking can and the bags come out easily. The touch lid is more of a "press firmly" lid to both open and close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase We were looking for a sleek trash can to go in our office that doubles as a family room. This trash can is perfect. Sleek to go with all our modern desks and air tight so you can't smell the trash inside. Excellent purchase. Easy to put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love Went to CS to get another trash can, one that I first purchased years ago and replace every year. The size I wanted was no longer available. I had some specific requirements about the bag not hanging out around the top of the can so resigned myself to giving in to the really expensive simple human (?? I think that's the name) can. One of the CS reps (wonderful!) pointed me to this wonderful strange looking for a kitchen white big box. Perfect. Uses standard tall kitchen sized bags. Space saving, good for small areas. Less expensive than the simple human and every bit as attractive. Sleek and clean. Upgrading from plastic to metal at a great price. Can't ask for more. Highly recommend this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great size, shape I love the height of this trash can as well as the touch lid, my dog had figured out how to use the step open style but this is too high for her to be able to tap the top and it fits well under the side of the kitchen island.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these bins, but hard to find bags I have 3 of these bins for trash and recycling. I used to have (and prefer) the smaller size (no longer available) that fit 13 gal bags with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great Bought this can for a small space in my kitchen. I liked that it was tall and held a good size bag but didn't take up a ton of room. I also like that so far my dogs have not been able to knock it down. Works great! Bags don't fall down in can! A+

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect for our small space Love this trash can - it's the only tall one we've found that fits the small space next to our fridge and the self-closing top is great! My only complaint is that we had to put a small box in the bottom to use regular kitchen trash bags without them falling down inside. It's just a bit too tall (or rather, regular bags are too short!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this piece! This is tall, stream lined, and tough. I use the typical trash bags from a general store instead of the specialty bags which work fine. I just have to fasten them to the sides to stay in place. It is a little too tall to fit under my counter. I have it in a free standing area and I have no issues. The top swings open or you can pop them locked to stay open for bigger jobs. Easy to clean too. I have received a lot of compliments because of it's unique look. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny This is the best Trashcan I have ever seen and purchased. I use it in my kitchen. The lid stays open for easy dumping, it's lightweight and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Saving We got this can to fit in an awkward space under our kitchen sink. We have it on a sliding drawer (also from the Container Store) and it works beautifully. Nice and sturdy, and just the right size. Keeps odors in. The lid does get dirty as you have to push it a bit to get the trash in, but it fits right in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big bin trash can and clear bags This trash can has lasted me over 15 years now and although in the beginning I had to replace the lid a couple of times because the metal rollers used to fall out a lot, they seemed to have fixed that problem. All in all a great trash bin, compact so fits in small spaces, yet tall enough to hold a lot of trash and top keeps closed so odors stay in. The trash bags are the only problems as the size is 15 gallon and they can only be found at the Container store. Fine when I lived in Texas near a store, but now I'm over 250 miles from the closest one and have to order bags shipped to me. 13 gallon size is just too small and hangs weirdly in the can and hate to waste a large black trash bag. They have really nice quality bags though until this year when they came in with one point less on the thickness and I could immediately tell. One roll had several torn bags mid roll, and they just feel thinner. But so far so good on the rest, not too pricey and you can fill them all the way to the top almost if you get the rubber band holder for the top of the bag-HIGHLY recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Purchase It really is great for smalle spaces. It holds a substantial amount of trash. And, it is easy to keep clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the BEST trash bin I purchased 3 of these bins several years ago for my laundry room. 1 is for garbage and the other 2 for recycling (I like to sort paper and plastic). They stand neatly side by side against a wall and STILL look new. The swing lid is perfect - provides a wide mouth for disposal and one can just "drop" in the trash. I find the step lids to be a bit noisy and hard on a wall if the can is sitting next to it (especially during heavy usage, i.e. a party). The plastic grips that hold the metal rods are just now starting the break off, but are easily (unnoticeably) fixed with duck tape (gotta love that stuff).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Nosy Dogs Love this can because it is tall enough that our nosy dog can't get into it. Very easy use with the swinging upper flaps. We have two side by side at the end of the counter one for garbage and one for recycling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Answer for Recycling These tall narrow trash cans are perfect for recycling when you have limited space. They fit nicely under counters, and three side by side fit easily even in a small space. I love these cans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great trashcan I wanted a white (non stainless steel) trash can that was roomy, wouldn't fall over, was narrow, easy to use, easy to keep clean. It was very hard to find something that fit the bill, but this one has it all. It's well made, sturdy, narrow, roomy. My only concern is how well the lid will hold up (the only plastic part). Otherwise, I LOVE this trash can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Trash Can! This is the best trash can ever. I've had one for 6+ years. Holds a lot and has simple, clean design. Best of all, there's no step pedal and/or lid mechanism that ultimately breaks. Doors on top are the perfect design. Gave the stainless version as a gift to a houseguest who loved mine. I don't see that option online-hope it's not discontinued. Worth the price. Goes the distance, functional and looks great too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I ordered This is the only place I can find 15 gallon bags. I purchased the garbage can at the container store quite a few years ago and have since moved to an area that does not have a local store.. I love my garbage can and it is worth the extra effort to get bags.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple+great We were looking for a single trash can with space for regular trash and recycling, but they were all expensive and didn't accommodate much recycling. We decided to get two of these, paid less, and we're very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Trash Bags I was so excited when I purchased my 15-gallon "White Big Bin". It was the perfect trash can for a narrow space in my kitchen. At the time, my hesitation was actually related to these trash bags. They were so plain and I had to special order them since "standard" kitchen bags are 13-gallon. Nonetheless, I proceeded - and I'm so happy I did. The kitchen bags are no problem. They actually stand up inside the trash can (thanks to the big bin's design) and they hold a LOT! Even though they do not have a cinch-top, I have no problem just tying the top corners together to close the bag before throwing out the trash. So, if the big bin is the right choice for your space, don't let the bags hold you back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love-Hate Relationship I love this trash bin. It is inconspicuous and fits well in any kitchen. However, I hate the fact that you cannot find anywhere replacement lids or parts for this brand (Hailo). Be aware that after 3 yrs. of use, the plastic snaps holding the weights under the lids (which is what makes it close automatically after dumping trash into the receptacle) tend to break and without noticing the weights fall off into your trash. You don't realize it until you find that the lids don't close automatically anymore. I went to The Container Store to see if they sell the replacement weights or replacement lids and they don't. Therefore keep in mind that after approx. 3 yrs. of use you will have to purchase a new one all over again. It's a pricey investment. It is up to you if you feel the aesthetic advantages and practicality outweigh the cost.

Can this be mounted to a wall?

Does it come with the ability to be mount onto a wall?
Asked by: Vernon
There are no mounting holes on the side of the can. It could be mounted if it is mounted on something that holds the lid out away from the wall so that it can be removed.

How does the lid open?

It says the lid opens with "a light touch" but where do you touch it? Does the trash push it open, or do you do it by hand?
Asked by: Liz817
The two halves of the swinging lid of our Big Box Trash Can pivot down into the can with a light touch either by your hand or by the weight of the article being thrown away.

How does the red piece hold the bag?

I just bought this trash can and I can't figure out hold the red trim holds the bag. It doesn't snap down or clip.
Asked by: Liz817
The red frame holds the trash bag within the trash can. To use, lift the red frame out, place the trash bag into the can, fold the trash bag opening over the red frame, and replace frame back into the can. Please give us a call for further assistance.

Can the lid be removed for easy dumping into dumpster?

I do not want to use plastic bags with this bin - it will be for recyclables. Thus I am wondering: 1. Can the lid easily be removed so I can easily dump the contents into the larger recycling dumpster and 2. Are there mechanical parts inside, thus requiring that I use a bag? Thanks!!
Asked by: jthorvy
The lid can be easily removed. There is a red holder to keep bags in place that you wouldn't need to use if not using bags.
