simplehuman Butterfly Step Trash Can Recycler : Exactly what we wanted

This trash can is a great size for a small kitchen. It’s large enough but small enough to get you to take out the trash. We probably empty it a couple times per week. The recycling side fills up really fast, but it’s great that it’s divided so easily. The step mechanism is also great so you don’t have to touch anything near the trash.

Sooooo glad i splurged and got this trashcan. Sooooo glad i splurged and got this trashcan. Never in a million years would i think a trashcan could bring me so much happiness, but it did. It’s clean, sophisticated and organized.I especially love the design and the bags that fit in it. They even have bags for the recycled side so to keep it nice and clean. No more gunky bottom recycled bin.

Had this garbage can for 3 years now and still looks and. Had this garbage can for 3 years now and still looks and works great. You will need to buy the simplehuman trash bags that fit.

The perfect trash/recycling can combo–totally worth the price. I’d bought a knock off of this trash can and returned it immediately. This is pricey (never thought i’d pay over $100 for a trash can) but it’s sooo sooo worth it. I love that it has separate containers for recycling and trash, each of which pulls out for easy emptying of the container and bags. I love that it’s a step not automatic trash can. Call me old fashioned but though the automatic option is more “glamorous”, it requires batteries that need changing, etc. Which seems more trouble to me than it’s worth. The way it opens is also great and closes slowly. It also has an option where you can make it so the doors stay open so you don’t have to keep pushing the step while you’re emptying the bags/containers. In short, this is the perfect trash can.

  • a perfect garbage can!
  • Very nice can. Sad to say
  • Beautiful trashcan worth the extra pennies.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Dual buckets for trash and recycling
  • Split lid opens from the center for low clearance areas
  • Slim shape for tight spots
  • Strong steel pedal
  • Lid shox technology for a smooth, silent close
  • Hidden internal hinge

Except, because this one is a recycler, one 1 of the two bins can be propped up to remove and replace the trash bags. This makes is difficult to remove and replace the liner for the second bin.

Very nice quality and design. For those wondering it does take standard costco bags. Only complaint is price is high.

I was going to purchase a less expensive product but i’m glad i didn’t. The premium one pays for simplehuman products is worth it because they are well made and function as advertised. This trash can/recycle combo is just what i needed and the butterfly lid is great. It looks good and does the job.

Perfect for narrow space in kitchen.

Full-size garbage container and then a separate one for recycling. My husband loves the design. I find the compartments too small. If i had to order again, i would order the regular, full-size garbage container and then a separate one for recycling. I do like ghe appearance and easy to clean surface.

Sad to say, i too am one of those who researched purchasing a trash can for hours. And this did not disappoint. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids under 6 and this can takes about 2-3days to fill up before it needs to be changed. Also tried a kirkland signature 13gal. Bag and it worked just fine. But i will say the recycle bags by simple human are super sturdy. Did not scratch up my hardwoods and i have yet to find a flaw.

Pricey, but a well built system. My wife and i bought this as a necessity. I did not want to spend the money, but we lost our pull out trash/recycle bins when we moved this year. I wanted to purchase a large, attractive bin since it would be showcased in our new kitchen that held refuse and recyclables. This holds a lot and although the trash is not the standard tall kitchen vessel size, you can simply cinch up or tie a traditional bag at the top and use it no problem. It does come with bags specifically for the trash bin size and you can purchase them, but they’re not stocked in every grocery store. Highly recommend this product.

I love how this trash can works. It is attractuve and functional. We use one side for compost and one for trash. The lid gently drifts closed, which i like a lot.

I’ve had this for year now and still as good as new. I’ve had this for year now and still as good as new. I love it and use it constantly. Fits perfectly in our narrow space- face forward.

Quality made, space saving trash can. What a delight to get a product that really deserves its glowing reviews. At first i thought it was crazy to spend this much on a trash can, but this is worth it. Solid construction, sleek, fit into a narrow space i happened to have. A really great idea for small spaces. You do have to get the custom size bags that are available here but to save on them, one could manage to not use liner on the recycle side if you rinse / clean everything pretty well before putting in.

This can fits perfectly in the small narrow space i wanted it to be. I like the lid, i like that i don’t need 2 cans. I mostly just like it, its easy to change the bags, and there is room on that back wall to put an air freshener on. The one con i have is also a pro (in a strange way). The 2 can’s don’t hold much at all. Its just 2 of us in my home, we fill the recycle faster then the trash. It holds about 3 days worth of recycling and 4-5 days worth of trash. What i don’t like about that is i gota take the trash out twice a week. The 2 pro’s of that is, my house shouldn’t get the trash stink and the bag is lighter to take out.

Beauty, functionality all in one. Solidly constructed, this can holds a lot more trash than it appears to. Having two compartments is very useful and takes up a lot less space than two separate containers. You don’t hear the can open or close. Foot pedal means even with kids, there are no finger marks and smudges. But if you ever wanted to feel happy about a trash can, this one will do it for you. Do you have large dogs on different diets?.This is also perfect for holding two different kinds of dry pet food.
