In 1977 I bought my first house, and promptly went to a local store and bought two Rubbermaid wastebaskets, one for the kitchen and one for the basement. I've gotten married, moved, and they followed me through the years to my current kitchen and workshop. The one in the workshop got more abuse and cracked a few years ago. The kitchen trash can is kept under the sink and is dragged in and out of its home 2 or more times a day. Finally, 37 years later (!), the top edge began cracking from being grabbed by the rim many times daily. Needless to say, I wanted another Rubbermaid. I couldn't find the right size here in town, but this was perfect. It's exactly the same height and width as the old one, so it fits perfectly under the sink. It seems even more sturdy than the original, and probably costs about the same, which means in 1977 dollars it's practically free. The color is a little darker than pictured, more like taupe. It's nice looking. What more could you possibly want from a basic wastebasket?
