Rated 5 out of 5Â by KARM Perfectly Designed
I had been using plastic grocery bags inside those cans that come with 3 flavors of popcorn as a gift. The bags wouldn't always stay put and the cans themselves were hard to pick up without slipping. I went to The Container Store purposefully to find a wastebasket that was easier to put trash in, easier to pick up to empty and easier to clean. This one is perfect! It looks nice in my bedroom AND it wasn't expensive. I would buy more ASAP if your store were closer than 60 miles away.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LalaNH Love these cans, but not the brushed finish
I own and love several Garbino cans, purchased years ago, in the normal smooth-finish white. Great design, good quality, good value. Perfect size for bedrooms. Easy to pick up and dump. And it just looks good!
Unfortunately The Container Store only offers these in the "brushed" finishes now. I tried one, the "brushed" look is tacky, seems to collect grime, harder to clean, and just not worth it. It's a shame - if only these were offered in the normal smooth-finish solid colors, I'd buy bunch more.

This garbage bin is great for the bathroom, and holds much more than meets the eye. You should use this garbage bin to hold anything from tissues to plastic casings removed from your newest container store product. This garbage bin is the way to go for a sleek garbage to hold your trash.

This can is super sturdy, i have put really heavy products to move in this can and the handles and can worked wonderfully. Due to the small bottom and larger top can be a bit off balanced.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by parentpro the ONLY trash can for college!
As a parent of two college graduates and one student half-way through, I am writing this as a service to all the shoppers who will attend the special get-ready-for-college events this summer. I have given this much appreciated advice in person to countless parents and rising freshmen, and finally realized I should just put it on the website:
Get this trash can for your dorm room before you co to college. First use it to pack things you need to find as soon as you get there. (We have used it to pack everything from specialized lightbulbs that need protection to breakable kitchen items that didn't fit anywhere else to jewelry to cords for electronics.)
Once you arrive and unpack it, take advantage of the fact that it has handles, it is easily emptied, it doesn't easily tip over, and it holds liquids. Liquids might get into your trash can for any number of reasons. (Believe me, two of my kids have already graduated.) Maybe someone just threw away a can that was not yet empty. Maybe something else happened. The handles will allow you to hold the trash can and to empty it even if that requires carrying it somewhere else. It is the simplest, best designed, cheapest trash can on the market and it does a brilliant job. It can even be customized with stickers.
We liked these trash cans so well that we even bought one for our youngest's room at home. Now we own 5 of these. Don't bother considering anything else!

Small, stylish, and inexpensive. Fits perfectly between bed and night stand. Different allows for decor matching. I chose white for my bedroom and purple for my child.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Penguii Perfect for a dorm bathroom
I have a small apartment at my college and this little trashcan is a must. It keeps my bathroom looking stylish and is the perfect size for little plastic bags.

Purchased this today and found that it the plastic bags from the supermarket fit perfectly into it. This minimizes the cleanup of the can itself.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Maoo Design that delivers, and great value!
I am replacing one I had for many years. It took hard use and still looked new (other than a crack in the bottom from unreasonable abuse). This new one seems of equal quality and I like the newer lightly brushed finish on the exterior.

Not the same old boring trash can. I bought this trash can for my classroom, it is colorful and practical. I love the wide mouth of the can. I think I might replace all the trash cans in my room with Garbino can!

Functional does not equal boring! This is a highly functional and sturdy trashbin but it is very aesthetically pleasing. I think it will be one of those items that 25 years from now you'll find in an art museum as an example of good design.

I've had two of these under my desk for about five years now, one for paper and one for unrecyclable trash, and they work great. They hold about a grocery bad worth of stuff, so you don't need to buy bags. Easy to clean and look beautiful. The handles really come in handy when you empty them out.

I've had this trash can for over 5 years and it's still in perfect shape. It's good quality plastic, easy to clean, and it's pretty! I never use the handles, but I suppose you could use this can for other things where the handles would be useful.

I love this little trash can, it fits in the area under the office desk, and when you want to empty the contents and take out the trash, it fits within a grocery bag so you don't get little confetti from the hole punch all over the floor! It's just what I needed in the office, right size, convenient, and cute.
