Our The Cleaning Institute team has tested products for 35 years and uses multiple testing categories to rate each item and score them correctly. Each category allows us to review the main features of the item and narrow down our top choices for consumers. When it came to testing trash cans, our top testing categories included design, efficiency, and durability.
Design – The design and style of the product were one of the top features we reviewed. We evaluated the overall look of the item and gave more points based on its aesthetic and design.
Efficiency – The ease of use and operation of each trash can was also taken into account to ensure that the product served its purpose.
Durability – Our team reviewed the type of materials that were used to construct each trash can to evaluate its durability. We also tested the products by examining how sturdy each item is and if it shifted or moved when the lid opened and closed.
