simplehuman – looks great and is the perfect size for short term use

Nice, functional and good complement to a stainless steel kitchen. Looks beautiful, size is enough to last for 4-5 days before emptying out. I would have liked it better if it had one compartment solely for recycling.

It was better than expected and it fit perfectly under cabinet.

Didn’t realize you had to take off. Didn’t realize you had to take off rim to remove can.

  • Solid product, but could be bigger
  • Costly but stylish!
  • Perfect for Tight Spaces

This slim line garbage can fits perfectly in the space i bought if for. It is fairly small so doesn’t hold a lot, but it is just my husband and i so it is plenty for us. Very clean looking and easy to empty.

Great small trash/recycling bin for spall spaces. . Perfect for my limited space & its very nice looking. Love the no fingerprint finish. I would have preferred a different proportion between the trash & recycling. Nowadays, we all have much more recycling & much less trash. The recycling fills up much faster. I appreciate sh’s thoughtfulness when they design their products.

Looks great and is the perfect size for short term use. Perfect size for under the desk.

Fits in a narrow area between bath vanity. Fits in a narrow area between bath vanity and wall. Since most of what we dispose of in the bathroom is recyclable, this makes sorting easy.

Fits ikea pullout (sektion). This is pretty small, but very functional. I use it in an ikea pull-out unit. Can you believe they sold me the pull-out unit but didn’t have a trash bin that fit. I was thrilled to find this.

It is nice to have the separate openings. No fingerprints due to the finish.

Looks nice, hard to find bags that fit. . The trash can is functional and looks nice. The only issue unless you buy the corresponding trash bags from simple human, it’s difficult to fit normal bags to this trash can. The bags from simple human are expensive, so i’ll be trying out some cheaper bags from walmart.

I really wish someone made something like this but cheaper, but it is a very nicely made trash can. The top has color coded rings and is removed to get to the plastic cans inside which are also color coded. If you put bags in the cans of course you can’t see their color so the top ring is important. I haven’t tried ‘regular’ bin liners in this yet but the cans are tall and narrow so perhaps buying the simple human ones made for the can is a good idea. On the plus side, the simple human brand bags are very rugged and have not ripped or otherwise made me want to change them yet so they do seem to last. In summary: i went looking for exactly a waste can like this. It has worked out just fine. I just wish it was cheaper, but i’m going to buy more of these anyway.

Would definitely recommend. . We had a very small area where we wanted both trash & recycling capabilities.

These containers are too small to be very useful, even in a space-limited kitchen. Nice simplehuman quality and look, but utility is questionable.

Love the garbage can, it’s perfect for a small nyc apartment. Clean lines and keeps a clean house.

Solid product, but could be bigger. Really like this containerwe were looking for a container with dual collector to fit in a tight space. All and all, this one is great, but we found ourselves emptying it every other day – the sections are way too small. I wish simplehuman made a taler container, which would have allowed for more recyclables to fit in. Think about it, everything you consume comes in some kind of a box, jar, jug, bottle, or a container, and unless you break it, squish it, or shred it, your container is at capacity after a day or two. We recycle way more than we throw away to garbage, so between composting and recycling, we are left with underutilized garbage container and overflowing recycling can. Maybe it’s time to rethink the ratio. Bigger section for recyclables~great looking container overall though.

Had this for a week but so far i love it for an office – trash and recycling in. I have only had this for a week but so far i love it for an office – trash and recycling in one nice package.

I was wasting time taking recycling to the bigger container downstairs in our office and ending up throwing out recycling and feeling guilty or collecting recycling on my desk which made it look cluttered.

Perfect for bedrooms, bathrooms, small home offices, etc. . I’ve been looking for a small set up like this for my bedroom/bathroom for quite awhile. Just the right size and cleverly designed so you can use liners but still see the blue recycling indicator. (this would not be big enough for my kitchen, just fyi.

White and dark wood office and it looks amazing in there. This is the cutest trash can. We have a modern looking grey, white and dark wood office and it looks amazing in there. From experience i know these don’t do well with moisture so definitely don’t put and simplehuman trash cans near moisture but in terms of style and value they’re great. I couldn’t find anything else like this on the market.
