Questions & Answers (3)


“Does this item have a manual lock, or does it automatically lock when closed?” asked by Lex

"Hi Lex, this has a manual lock." Joe from Wayfair


“Is there an inner can liner included, or does the trash bag get inserted directly into the can. Does this accept regular tall kitchen garbage bags? Can you hook or latch the garbage bag to something on the can so it doesn't fall in?” asked by Maynard

"Hi Maynard, this unit does not include an inner plastic piece, as it is solid quality plastic. It does accept regular kitchen bags and the dimensions are 25.2" H x 10.2" W x 19.2" D. You can wrap the garbage bag around the lip of the can to prevent slippage." Jordan from Wayfair


“Hi, can this step be used commercially?” asked by Elmira

"Hi Elmira, yes, this step can be used commercially." Nikki from Wayfair

step auto trash can.

from Layton, UT – Verified Buyer

Unseen in real life, I did not know what to expect with this garbage can! I was pleasantly surprised! It fits perfectly by my new fridge, in a tight place, and function extremely well. I would buy it again and surely recommend it to any one who is looking for this type of garbage cans. It was really hard for me to put it together as the instructions were quite confusing to ME, but perhaps not other people.

Nice Slim Can

from San Diego, CA – Verified Buyer

I searched far and wide for a slim trash can with a foot step that was not super flimsy and this one has been great! It is great for small spaces but still uses standard size bags. I also like the wheels on the back when scooting it around my kitchen. I do not use the lock feature on the can but I appreciate the thoughtful design and might try if out when my friends two year old comes for a visit!

A great trash can!

from TURLOCK, CA – Verified Buyer

This is a great trash can. I bought it to replace my old one, that was still working by the way! I love it's slim design and the dark black color. It will stay open or close silently as you may need. You will be happy with this can if you need a slim can to tuck away. Wouldn't fit under a sink as the top lifts up.

Excellent trash can

from Bronxville, NY – Verified Buyer

Why are garbage cans so expensive They ought to be made of platinum for the price they command. Anyway, got this one on sale through Wayfair and it is excellent. The kitchen-sized garbage bags actually stay up once stretched over the opening. The closing mechanism is good, it fits next to my stove and looks inoffensive. What more can anyone ask This is my third order with Wayfair. They have been completely reliable and straightforward to deal with.

Finally found a trashcan!

from Tuscaloosa, AL – Verified Buyer

I have been looking for a long time for the right kitchen trash can and I have finally found it. This fits a standard size trash bag perfectly, cleans easily, and the foot pedal has made cooking, chopping and cleaning a much smoother process. Love that is has wheels so I can move it around to wherever I am cooking at the time. Would recommend, good value for the price.

great trash can!

from Lindenhurst, NY – Verified Buyer

I own 2 of these great trash cans. one in the laundry room where space is limited, and one in the nursery where space is also limited, but also, they lock so my dogs can't get into them. A little pricey for a trash can, but worth it, in my opinion, since there is no smell from diapers and the dogs cannot open it.

Slim & functional

from Brooklyn, NY – Verified Buyer

I've had this garbage can for a few months now and it does it's job very well. It's perfect for right next to your kitchen counter or island, lid stays up if you need it to, you can also lock it if you have curious toddlers (though I suspect they wouldn't have too hard a time figuring out how to unlatch it)

Great Product

from Friendship, NY – Verified Buyer

Fits nicely into small space in our new kitchen. Like the slow lowering lid. Can put quite a bit in it despite what you would think for the size. Pros: shape, size Cons: foot pedal sets back a little, need to reach to get it.

Trash Can

from New York, NY – Verified Buyer

Purchased this Simple Human trash can in white. It's a good size and works well. It's plastic and therefore much lighter weight than a stainless steel can, which might be a pro or a con depending on what you're looking for.
