From the manufacturer
Silent close lid
Our patented lid shox technology controls the motion of the lid for a slow, silent close.
Lock the lid shut
A slide lock securely locks the lid to help keep pets and curious children from getting into the trash.
Space-efficient semi-round shape is great for high-traffic areas.
Large Capacity Plastic Trash Can
The simplehuman 50 liter/ 13 gallon black plastic semi-round step on garbage can has a semi-round shape designed for easy placement against the wall and out of the way and is perfect for an office, your kitchen or anywhere you need to throw away rubbish in your home. Its large capacity makes it perfect for families or high-traffic areas. The durable plastic is fingerprint-proof and easy to clean, and a soft-plastic coated wall bumper prevents the can from bumping up against the wall.
Lock the Lid Shut
This waste bin also has a slide lock that locks the lid shut to keep it secure – and harder for dogs, cats, other pets and curious children to get into.
I'm the Strong and Silent Type
The strong steel pedal means the can is hands-free and is designed to last 150,000 steps — that's more than 20 steps a day for 20 years, and simplehuman's patented lid shox technology ensures that the lid closes softly in a smooth, quiet manner.

simplehuman Code P trash can liners are a perfect fit for this trash can. They are made from extra-durable plastic with thick double seams to prevent rips and tears and have been rated among the top in strength comparable to other major brands. Extra strong to keep garbage in the bag — not on the floor or the bottom of your trash can.

Well guess what, that is the opposite of what has happened. I tried to contact the customer service but they have this clever little trick with their website. After filling out all the information they requested, when I tried to scroll down to the bottom of the web page to click the "Submit" button the web page wouldn't let me scroll down all the way. When I got to the bottom of the page to the "submit" button the webpage would bounce back up before I could click. Pretty clever way to not have to uphold their warranty promise, but just wait this company has more tricks up his sleeve. After giving up trying to find a useful customer service friendly phone number, I figured out if I connected my Apple laptop to Apple TV and used my TV screen I could then actually see AND click the "submit" button. So first hoop from the folks at simplyhuman cleared. On to the next...
Next hoop, the company's automatically generated email promised a reply in 2 business days I didn't hear anything until 4, ok not a big deal. I now have a response and hopefully my replacement pedal is on the way. Oh wait, despite having all the necessary information (including my mailing address, the exact part I need and confirmation from Amazon's website of the product's purchase date and the fact it is very much still under warranty) they ask me to order it myself and direct me back to the same page I started at to contact them.
And I do, clearing the next hoop. So end of story right, nope, simplehuman throws another hoop at me to try to crush my determination to get them to honor their warranty. The replacement pedal they force ME to order for myself is suddenly "out of stock"!!! Can you believe it??!?!?! It was in stock when I sent my original email requesting help.
So they included a link asking for my feedback regarding their customer service and I replied with a detailed email similar to this one about my dissatisfaction.
No response, still waiting, broken trash can goes wanting and so do I.
About 2 other reviewer's comments:
I read another reviewer's post about "13 gallon bags not fitting" but we've tried several brands and they all fit just fine. Currently we buy a huge roll of standard trash bags from target for $4 and have no issues. I will say that you do have to stretch the top 1/2" to fit the bag over the rim, but I believe that is by design because it holds there perfectly. The bags never tear at the rim, and the bags never sag into the can.
Another reviewer also said the top of the lid flopped about every time they pressed the pedal down, and would never close correctly. I think this is because, when the can arrives it is already connected to the base via the lifting bar that extends up the back from the pedal. What the other reviewer failed to realize (most likely), is that the lid still has two clips on it that need to be snapped into place once you receive it. Once attached properly it functions perfectly.
About the Can:
- Price - $49.99 is well worth it.
- Color Combos - We got the cappuccino color ... super nice for a trash bin.
- Wide Pedal - good for ease of use.
- Locking Lid - we don't have cats, but I read another review that said this was the only cat proof lock they found that worked. We have an infant so I am sure this will come in handy later when she is reaching height.
- Slow Motion Lid - Great little feature .... when you open the lid and let off the pedal the lid very calmly and slowly closes quietly in slow motion. Most cans have lids that just slam shut (and burst some stinky air while at it), but this one is very pleasant. I hadn't thought of this feature until seeing it on this can, now I will make sure to check for it in the future.
** We had another couple over for dinner recently and they saw the can and it's "slow motion" lid. They were so impressed they went on amazon and bought the black one, haha. How may times have you ever been able to tell a story like that about a trash can?
**** Lowe's sells the same can for the same price, but we are Amazon Prime members so we prefer to order online since shipping is free, and that also let's us skip the drive and sales tax =)
