Umbra Mini Swing-Lid Trash Cans is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading description Its a perfectly nice little garbage can but their description is incredibly misleading! It is by no means a "desktop" garbage can for "cotton balls" and "makeup sponges" unless you are trying to throw away hundreds of cotton balls. This little garbage can would take up a quarter of the size of my desktop. Perhaps I should have taken a look at the dimensions (because they are true), but I'm just saying that the description is not representative of this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from little can Yes the lid is a bit loose fitting but it works great in small areas or for small items of trash. Its sort of cute too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great model for bathrooms We use these in our guest bathrooms. They are small and unassuming, easy to use, and I like that they are not open-top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top loose I would give this can 5 stars if the top was more snug. It fits within the groove along the inside rim just fine. But you can't pick it up by the top without the base falling off. I have a wide stretch headband in black (to match the can) to stretch over the seam where the base and the top fit together to hold them together. Most other people are probably not bothered by this. But I find it slightly annoying. Maybe a twist tight lid would be ideal for future design? It's still a great deal for the price and a perfect size for small bathrooms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Other than the lid not being the perfect fit...this item is great. Would definitely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Office I liked it but it is kind of small. We kept it in our office, so we can use it while sitting so we don't have to bend over just to throw small stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We've bought these before from other sellers - great size and works well. Would love to see the whitish translucent one be offered!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Umbra Mini Can Exactly what I was looking for in my small bathroom. The swing top cover conceals what is inside and it is a perfect size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tiny trash can It's made of sturdy plastic and it's the perfect size. I personally use it to throw away open food or anything that may attract bugs. I throw the bag away daily so I never have food sitting in my home trash can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a deal! I purchased this Mini Can a few months ago, and have loved it. I put it in my laundry room to catch all the little bits of trash that I find in pockets and lint traps. It's super handy, and looks great. The swing arm is perfect for one-handed tosses. At $4.99, it's a steal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional I use this in my laundry room for the lint from the dryer. It's very compact so it's not in the way. Another great Container Store product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little can I like that it's petite and fits under the sink easily. I really like that I don't have to push down on anything to open the lid, especially since it sits under the sink. I try not to get plastic at the grocery stores, but when I do, they fit perfectly inside this little bin. Happy happy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect Bathroom Garbage Can I use this in my bathroom. It's the perfect size to dispose of small things we all use in there. I like that it is covered as well. I just wish the rotating opening was a little smaller because if I put an empty toilet paper roll inside, the flap gets caught on it. I also wouldn't put it on a desk, its a little too big for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, but practical The lid doesn't close shut so when you pick it up it falls off. Other than that, this garbage can is a great size for a small room.
Date published: 2014-03-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for under the sink I wish there was a size between this and the next size up, other than that it's a great compact bin to put under the bathroom sink. Considering it is not seen it is at a great price point too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must get!!! This is really a must for any house that has little kids. I bought this for our bathroom when our first child started to get around. It's great for on top of the counter. We have since had two more kids and bought 3 more for other bathrooms & laundry room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Swing lid not secured well I had one of these for my bathroom. But the swing lid would often fall off. It was not secured well. There are probably better products out there if you are willing to pay more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it this little can fits perfectly on my bath counter. it takes up very little space and is convient to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Cute little can, only problem... to get others to stop filling up this can past the opening keeping the lid cocked, but that is a user problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size for laundry room I use this on a shelf in the laundry room. I use it for dryer lint and pop tops from the beverage frig. It is a grat size for this purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed This is exactly what I needed and I am pleased to have it. Handy, yet inconspicuous. Great price and great service, in shipping it to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Purchase The mini can was smaller than I thought, but It works just fine in my bathroom. The swing lid sometimes does not swing back on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best clean-up tool ever Bought one for each of the little kids' rooms and put them next to their craft tables- they like them so much, they actually use them instead of dropping papers on the floor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product Looks good and works well. I'm using them on my kitchen counter for regular garbage and for compost material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love! You can't find better design for the price! I bought a few of these stylish minis for my new office, and I love the swivel lid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a bird, it's a plane, it's SUPER CAN! This is a small swing lid can but for its size, it is super! I have it lined with a plastic grocery bag which fits nicely. It is great for the little things in life, such as bottle caps, candy boxes, wrappers, etc. I have it placed in an area where snacking goes on a lot and the trash is now placed in this cute little container! The swing lid makes it super fun to throw things away! Got kids?? Get this can! They love to play "throw the trash away" with this lid. Also, for $5.00, it makes a really great toy for toddler and older kids that are learning to put toys away. Use it to toss little things in and watch the kids take over! The lid does come off and can go on a kids head so you should probably supervise while kids are at play. This can can be painted, decorated, etc for added interest. So, this versatile little can is SUPER!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works, it really works! I picked up the white color of this Umbra® Mini Can. It was to replace an older can. It gets the job done and it is a nice white tone. Reminds me of a Star Wars Stormtrooper cause it put a black bag in it. I may draw a face on it. :) The lid peaks open and for discretion of waste. :)

My son wants to use this to make into a Valentine's box for school. Trying to decide if it's big enough? Does 12 in height include lid?

Our Umbra Mini Swing-Lid Trash Can is 12-1/2" high inclusive of the lid.
