Made of fingerprint-proof brushed stainless steel, this sleek recycler has two removable plastic bins for separating recyclables. Designed to fit in small spaces or under a kitchen island or countertop, it has a space-saving split lid that opens wide enough to admit a gallon-size milk container, yet gives the can a total height of only 30 1/2" when open.

  • Slim design with butterfly lid fits in tight areas and under most standard-height kitchen counters.
  • Two pull-out plastic liners allow for sorting and separating recyclables.
  • 10-gallon capacity.
  • Steel foot pedal for neat, convenient, no-hands opening.
  • Lid closes automatically, slowly and quietly.
  • The brushed-stainless-steel finish hides fingerprints and wipes clean easily.
  • Use with simplehuman size-D liners or standard 8- to 10-gallon trash bags.
Dimensions & More Info

  • Recycler: 10 1/2" x 23 1/2" x 26" high (30 1/2" high, fully open).

Use & Care

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and attention to detail An excellent trash can for containing and sorting recyclables. It is sleek, a good size to find a place in the kitchen, and is well-designed with attention to detail–like the slowly closing lid. Elegant!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply perfect It is all this recycler was purported to be. Love hands free, two compartments, easy to remove bins for emptying. Grand addition to the home. Fits perfectly into the space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this thing! I keep telling folks how much I love my new kitchen trash can. It is amazing how something so basic can be so good or bad. This one is really good. Easy to use, looks great. The size of each side is small but if you are needing more than this you probably are making too much trash. It is perfect. Would buy again. Several months out not sure of wear but looks brand new still.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made and compact I find this is much too small for trash and recycling.I have more to I turned it into a plastic/glass recycling combo unit..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recycling dream The can fits in tight spaces - be sure to measure if you have a specific place in mind. Ours fits seamlessly between our cabinets and a buffet in the kitchen. It looks built-in and matches our stainless steel appliances. No noise upon opening or closing. Easy to separate types of recycling materials if that's an issue. If not, order the one without two inserts. The can could fit at the end of an island or countertop easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking trash/recycler This product is attractive and is much bigger than I thought it would be. I love that it closes automatically and silently without banging.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design, Great Quality As with all Simplehuman products I've bought, I'm exceptionally happy with this purchase. It's sleek and basically as attractive a trash can as you can expect to have.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value-well made I have looked at this garbage bin for sometime and to be honest felt the price seemed high...but after throwing out two $40.00 bins from a discount store decided it was time to invest in something better & the 10 year warranty was enough for me. The slim design & styling are wonderful. Operationally it is great, keeps an active one year old out & no finger have to love that. My only negative is I wish the garbage bin side was a bit larger...but I do like having a single bin that houses both the garbage & recycle items. I considered ordering the garbage only bin, but we recycle everything so I felt this was a better fit. The only trouble I have with the can is that from time to time the inner bins seem to take a little jiggling to get into place. A bit of an annoyance but I would buy this brand again. They are very well made. Wish I could give 1/2 stars, because 4.5 star rating is what I think it deserves.
