Questions & Answers
Umbra Skinny 2-Gal. Waste Can
Perfect Skinny Waste Basket
Peggy from OR– Verified Buyer
Perfect size to put in the knee hole area of my sewing machine table and I had planned to dull the finish. Instead I had a change of heart and ended up spray painting the outside black. I know I could have ordered black, but I am very happy with the finish and it's still silver inside. Love the cut out for the handle too! Never knew I would be this excited about a waste basket, but I am.
Sleek Trash Can
Kathleen from Darien, CT– Verified Buyer
Used it in my newly remodeled bathroom, the slim design allowed me to place it in a tight space next to the toilet

Fits very conveniently tucked away under desk God shape and size. The brushed metal isnt my favorite but its not very noticeable.
T from ND– Verified Buyer
Cool little garbage can. I was looking for something modern in design and this was a good fit. Good quality and it fits in-between the toilet and my vanity. The material is not quite brushed nickel (little more dull) thus the 4 stars. I was hoping for a nicer brushed finish on it.

We needed a small waste basket for the garage. The galvanized metal is great, small but perfect for our needs.
Jessica from Pittsburgh, PA– Verified Buyer
I bought this on sale. It is great for the price. It is very narrow. It doesn't show finger smudges due to the exterior treatment of the steel. The only drawback, is that is doesn't have a rubber lip in the bottom, so it is a bit loud if moved around on a tile surface.

Twenty-five years later, Umbra's award-winning design team - 22 men and women from all over the world and notable outside product designers, all under Paul Rowan's direction - remains the heart and soul of the company. Its offices worldwide now house more than 450 people.
