The Story

With the streamlined modern style of simplehuman, this space-saving recycle-trash can is engineered to maximize capacity and minimize footprint. Smart shape fits directly against the wall and out of the way, while the extra-wide, strong steel pedal is easy to access from any angle. Pedal is designed to last, running all the way to the back of the can with a center pivot, spreading the stress to last over 150,000 steps—more than 20 steps a day for 20 years. Two inner baskets—one 13-quart for recycling and one 30-quart for garbage—feature a "park" position for easy bag changing and lift out for easy cleaning. Lid with patented Lid Shox technology opens quickly, stays open as long as you like for extended chores, and closes smoothly and quietly every time. Fingerprint-proof finish maintains a clean look.

simplehuman ® 46-Liter/12-Gallon Stainless Steel Recycler Trash Can is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very frustrating Every time I take out the trash I wish I had never seen this terrible trashcan. I loved the idea of one joint receptacle for recycling and trash; however, it is so burdensome - and even painful to change the trash bags that Simple Human needs to give a redesign serious thought. Don't even get me started on ordering new trash bags. I wanted an enlightened trash system. Perhaps I should have just stuck to the basics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garbage problem solved This garbage can is large, opens easily by foot pedal, and looks sleek, sitting flush against the cabinet wall. The door closes slowly and doesn't slam. So far it works for us with the larger bin used for recycles and the blue smaller bin for garbage. We have one of those built-in-the-drawer garbage containers, but it is not at all as convenient as this. It closes tight and keeps any smells in. My only negative observation is that the device for holding the lid open is just plastic and very small. Sometimes I inadvertently go to manually close the lid without removing that holding-up device, and I am afraid it will break eventually. It would be my own fault, but I'd like a more positive and strong lid holder-opener. Other than that weakness, we like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best can ever! Never have I been so excited about trash! This trash can not only looks sleek but it holds so much! I love having both the trash and recyling in one place! It was a big purchase for us and we use it so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Recycle-Trash Receptacle We bought this about one month ago. The unit is sleek, modernistic looking and easy to clean. It replaces TWO plastic cans we had: one for trash, the other for recycles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option to avoid having two bins! My husband hated having two big bins in our kitchen (one for trash & one for recycling), so when I found this, I jumped at it. It is a little pricey, but then again, so are all the stainless steel bins. Also, I love the fingerprint proof steel. We create much more recycling than trash, so we place generic recycling bags in the larger black bin and place trash in the blue bin. Works wonderfully! My mother-in-law saw it & fell in love with it & has requested one for Christmas!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for kitchens that can't hide the can! We received this for our wedding and I can't tell you how happy I was to have it. Our kitchen is small and there's not a good place to hide a trash can of decent size. This is beautiful yet functional. I love that it opens from the side for kitchens that have it in a location where the typical narrow fronted but deep trash cans don't work (we had one at first and it was so frustrating that we could only open it from one direction since the widest part aka the side was placed against a floor cabinet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever. I never knew I could love a trash can/recycling container so much. Seriously, I love this thing. Worth every penny. If I could find the smaller "V" sized trash bags (the size that fits the blue 'recycling' container) instead of the bags that fit bigger side, I'd use that for our trash instead, and put the recyclables in the big side instead. Makes it so easy to divide up recycling/trash. (Side note: totally worth it to buy the SimpleHuman branded bags that fit the container exactly. We use far fewer trash bags since most of our former trash now gets recycled...because the recycling bin is right there!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and good looking (for a trash can) This may seem like a lot to spend on a trash can. But, if it’s going to be a permanent fixture in your home, it’s more than worth the money.I bought this to use for a recycling bin in my kitchen. I had been using a white plastic garbage container but, it always looked dirty and definitely stood out. This was the perfect solution! It’s very heavy duty and the quality is great. The slim profile and stainless steel finish makes it blend right into my kitchen.It does have two bins inside but, I just use them both for recyclables. I don’t use the bags, I just empty the bins into the outdoor recycling when they are full. I am very happy with this purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Division There are 2 inner buckets, one is a 13 quart for recycle, and other other is a 30-quartfor garbage. I wanted one inner bucket. I never anticipated that there would be 2 inner buckets of different sizes. It never occurred to me that anyone would do it that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Trash Can This is a great trash can - best part is its slim profile and so it doesn't take up much space in the kitchen and isn't intrusive. I recommend using the simplehuman trash bags with them!
