Trash cans are a universal item that are used daily in different types of settings. From the kitchen to the bathroom, trash cans are necessary items to own in order to limit clutter and waste in a given space and to create a comfortable and sanitary setting. Due to how frequently the product is used, it’s important to own a trash can that is functional and easy to operate. At The Cleaning Institute, we spent a week testing dozens of trash cans on the market to determine which ones consumers should consider purchasing for their home or office. Our top pick is the simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can with Liner Pocket, due to its sleek and modern design that contributes to the style of the interior setting. We made the iTouchless 13 Gallon Stainless Steel Automatic Trash Can with Odor-Absorbing Filter our honorable mention, because it’s easy to use without having to touch the product to open the lid. We also recommend the Tramontina 81200/558DS Rectangular Step Can Freshener System for its sleek design and ease of use.
