mDesign Slim Plastic Rectangular Small Trash Can Wastebasket – Size is my reason for purchasing this wastebasket

Small/compact, perfect size for my needs. Sturdy enough to with stand my toddlers picking it up and dropping it on occasion. So overall, great price for a well made product.

Very much as i expected, not too big, fits perfectly next to chair and next to bed in elderly parents room.

The shape is very convenient however lifting it by the corner broke off a large chip of this wastebasket.

This trash bin was perfect by my bed as well as by my desk. It’s smaller than the standard little wastebasket but the quality and the shape make it more ideal if you are looking for something that looks nice. I personally use it for trash but it could easily be used for books, magazines, toys, etc.

I have a very small bathroom and this fit perfect, but almost too small. Measure this before you buy.

Perfect for the tiny space beside the toilet. Seems well made and the silver color is really unobtrusive in my bath. I use the second one in my home office – keeps me from letting trash pile up.

I like the compact size of these waste baskets. I have 2 in my home office so i can place regular trash in one and recyclable in the other. My only issue is that the 2-pack arrives with one basket inside the other. Since they are the same size, the inner basket becomes concave on the sides. They should not be packaged this way.

I’ve seen similar to these at target and the cutout handles had very sharp edges.

We purchased for our rv, it fits perfectly in our small bathroom. The 2nd basket is a plus to use at our rv outside kitchen. Easy, light, very small, and very sturdy.

Great price for a pack of two sturdy trash cans. We put one each in my girls bedroom and it’s perfect for the random weird things that find their way into the trash. Perfectly good underwear, used slime, open paint tubes, millions of candy wrappers, etc.

This can is even more perfect than i had anticipated for the space i needed it in. I live alone and don’t have much trash to toss out in the bathroom so i don’t need a giant can. This can slides, with ease and room to spare, into the bottom shelf of my 3 cube organizer that holds all my shave soaps and aftershave splashes and whatnot. Tucks right out of sight and freed up some floor space. It arrived in perfect condition and is a pretty sturdy plastic material. Couldn’t have asked for a better purchase for the price.

Ordered the gray color, very close to the color advertised. Decent quality for a trash can, as others have mentioned, there is noticable warping on one of the sides, and noticable scuffs like marking on the sides as well, i believe the marking was due to the molding process of the trash can. I did decided to keep the trash can beacuse it was the size i needed to place in a specific area of bathroom and the color worked well with the general decore of the bathroom.

I have the tiniest bathroom known to man so i needed the tiniest trash can known to man. I got the frost color and it is perfect. I put a clear trash bag inside and it’s practically invisible. I think this is the most satisfied i have ever been with a purchase from amazon. If you have a regular sized bathroom you will not want this trash can. I’m still excited about my near invisible trash can. Here are the specifications for the mDesign Slim Plastic Rectangular Small Trash Can Wastebasket:

I love how low profile it is. Can actually keep it in the living room without being obvious. Mine came a little warped, so reduced one star. Will buy another for the bedroom.

It’s smaller than i expected, and pretty flimsy. But it does the job of holding some dorm room trash. I think it would work better as a desk recycling bin though, and less as a trash bin.

They are small, but work well for my needs. Makes it so easy to pick up. I live that they are long and slim, fit relly well in small spaces next to my bed and chair.

Excellent size and shape for camper bathrooms. Easily fit under the sink or between the toilet and the door.

Size is my reason for purchasing this wastebasket. It fit under my night stand perfectly. My problem was the sharp edges could scratch the furniture. Product is okay but not for my application.

I like it because it is more narrow and fits where i need it. I don’t line it, and don’t know how i could, because of the shape and the open handles, but it is just what i need. I plan on buying a couple more soon.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • These garbage cans are the perfect size/shape for our needs
  • Great Size – Using for storage as well
  • Size and condition on arrival.

The wastebasket is exactly what we were looking for and the perfect size for where we placed it. On the down side the wastebasket is a bit warped on one side. I do not know if this was a manufacturing issue or it became too hot during shipping. Either way, we decided we could live with the slight misshape, but that is why i gave 3 stars instead of 5.

I actually bought this to use as a garbage can because my bathroom is too smal, it couldn’t support a round or bigger one. This fits perfectly, it’s exactly as described.

Needed a slim, low-profile trash can that would fit next to the toilet/against the wall. (because i wanted to ditch the larger, intrusive trash can in my bathroom. Honestly does anyone need a larger can in the bathroom?. ) because i can tuck it back, the dogs can’t reach it. Got the grey bc it matches my decor.

Perfect size for all our bathrooms and the small bags we bought with. Affordable since we had to buy a few for all our baths.

I’m sure sign is as advertised but i fill them up (bedside and bath) in a day.

They are small – but am trying for the minimalist look at the moment in my condo. Got these to slide back out of the open in cabinet and side of toilet.

We have this in our guest bath, which has neutral gray and white tones. I didn’t want something too big or noticeable. This is great for smaller spaces, and especially if it won’t get used super often. It fits perfect between the wall and behind the toilet. It’s a nice medium gray color.

These are perfect size for right next to my sewing machine and next to my cutting board. I recently had to downsize due to my mom moving in and taking my master bedroom. I now have my sewing area in the living room. I purchased two others as well that i’m using for storage under my sewing table. They don’t have to be used as garbage cans – they are the perfect size for storage, to tuck under my table.

Yes, they are slim, and fit into tight spaces (like behind the night stand, between the toilet and vanity, between the sofa and end table). Very happy with this purchase.

You can kinda just hide them anywhere. Nobody really thinks much about their trash cans but these are a great way to get a little something that is not an eyesore and adds a little touch of modern style to a room. The handles are my favorite part, and the plastic is easy to clean.

These garbage cans are the perfect size/shape for our needs. They easily slide between the bed and the dresser, between the recliner and side table, and right next to the cat box for easy cleaning. They’re the perfect size/shape to be able to re-use the plastic bags we buy vegetables in as the can liner.We have 4 of these in our home now.

Hooks easily over the cupboard door under the sink and holds plenty. Best to put a piece of cardboard on the bottom to provide firm support for plastic bag inserts – but certainly meets the need and looks great.

One slides right under my desk without interfering with anything. And the other slide right between commode and cabinet. Very pleased with the sheer look of them and how easy of use with the handle on one side. Should of bought two more for my other bath and my sewing room.

So by no fault of the product i want to describe just how small 10in is which they do tell you. Too big to use a plastic grocery bag as a liner. Too small to put a full size piece of paper in. If you have a use for that、 these are good in every way. If not there’s less guess work. Go slightly smaller or slightly bigger.

I needed a trash basket that would fit between the slide-out and a wall in my travel trailer. There is only five inches of width. This basket fits perfectly and will do the job while keeping my kitchen trash out of sight. It may require emptying the trash more often since the basket is pretty small, but it fits my needs very well.

Quite small but that’s exactly what i was seeking for my quaint home office. It fits well under my desk and is easily wiped clean.

This is a bit skinner than i was expecting it would be.
