  • Loved it so much, bought a second one!
    Verified Purchase

    This is the best investment in garbage cans that I've ever made! The containers look and work great! They come with a supply of bags, but easily fit standard kitchen bags, which are a snap to change. I bought one for my kitchen and liked it so much, got another for my laundry room. Thank you, thank you, thank you Overstock for offering this product. It is both stylish and functional. I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with the product and how well it functions – I highly recommend it!

    I just moved into a modern loft and wanted all my new decor to have an industrial feel/look. This trash can fits the bill PERFECTLY. Very modern design and has worked as advertised so far. I've only had it about a month, so time will tell as to long term durability. Yet, the 5 yr warranty /reviews regarding the greatness of Superhuman customer service puts all worries at ease. Ordering this item from Overstock saved me $* compared to buying from Simplehuman direct. Carbon filter has kept odors non-existent, and all my friends comment on the awesome look/technology. Trail Pack of liners has convinced me to invest in more. They are very thick and fit perfectly. It's kind of crazy to spend $* on a trash can, but if you are looking for a modern, stainless, motion detecting trash can that is just plain freaking cool, cough up the money. You won't be disappointed.

  • Best kitchen garbage can ever!
    Verified Purchase

    This is sleek and clean looking and so not a typical garbage can. It needs 6 C batteries. It comes with 2 filters and 10 bags. The bags fits snug and you never smell anything because of the filter.

  • Nice look and spacious
    Verified Purchase

    This is a great product. It is well made and the deodorized inside of the lit make a big difference when adding leftovers - no smells! The fact that I don't need to touch it and that stays open until a moved from it is perfect.

  • Don't throw away your money!

    While this is a beautiful trash can, mine quit working after 8 months. I love the size of it and loved how it worked the first 6 months, but after 6 months it went downhill completely. I'm now at 8 months and it doesn't work at all. The top is stuck up and it makes a grinding noise when you put your hand over the sensor. I also went through MANY batteries in the 8 months. I would never own another sensor motioned trash can.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Why did you choose this product?"

    • A:

      I broke the lid off the simple human trashcan I have. They don't make the 40 liter recycle/trash dual can anymore. This is the only one that will fit under my counter. I hope it works!

    • A:

      fits perfectly in a spot I need, and I have 2 other garbage cans from this company and they are awesome.

    • A:

      Need a all stainless steel trash can

  • Q:

    "I just received this simplehuman trash can 10.5 gallons but how come the lid doesn't close once u put your hand 2 open it it doesn't close or it takes a long time please email me at and tell me why or how I can make it close faster"

    • A:

      Thank you for shopping with us yanksraids414. I see that you are being helped from Customer Care. Have a great day.

    • A:

      It stays open 30 seconds when you first wave your hand to open it. If you keep your hand or other object within range of the detector after the lid has already opened, it will keep the lid open much longer. If you want it to shut, just wave your hand in front of it again (the green light will flash) and then it will close in a few seconds.

  • Q:

    "Is the lid plastic or Stainless Steel? How long dothe batteries last? Do standard trash bags fit in it or are the bags special order?"

    • A:

      Thank you for contacting us consideringbuying. The lid is stainless steel, the 6 C batteries last up to a year, or you can get the optional power adapter. The code N liner goes with this product or use regular bags and tie off the excess. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
