For early humans, the trash can was the grass in front of their cave. Tired of seeing (and smelling) his garbage, modern man gathered it into a box. Today's trash cans have evolved into works of art, something nice to look at. We love the convenience of having kitchen, bathroom, even office wastebaskets right in the house, so it's only natural to make them beautiful too. To keep out any smell, we put a lid on it.
The modern chef loves the industrial look of a stainless steel trash can, easy to clean and handsome to have around. Many come with pop-up lids so you can stomp them open when your hands are full. Or get fancy and enjoy the luxury of the latest infra-red hands-free sensor: it opens the lid when your hands are near it, and closes automatically when you go away. No touch, no mess, no kidding. It's like having Oscar the Grouch as your assistant.
Other glossy metal trash can colors are available, like brilliant red or gleaming white. For a softer, warmer look, you'll love the look of the new wood trash cans, masterworks of laminated hardwood craftsmanship that are beautiful to behold and a pleasure to throw trash at.
Ceramic trash cans are almost too beautiful to use. Hand-painted, kiln-dried designs are precise, delicate and elegant. Asian themes abound, with modern art and folk craft right behind. Gleaming marble wastebaskets enhance even the most elegant bathroom. What used to be hidden behind a cupboard is now out on display, a proud part of your decor. Suddenly your trash can becomes a decorating statement, and you don't have to settle for anything less.
If you throw away a lot, you'll love having access to our line of commercial trash cans, including smoking posts and urns. If you don't want to throw away much of anything, we have indoor and outdoor recycling bins that by their mere presence encourage greener habits while sorting your reusables into unique, well-marked containers.
You'll find wicker hampers here too, as helpful as they are charming. Wicker helps prevent mildew and bacteria from growing, so you don't have to wear a biohazard suit to do the laundry.
We know that's a lot of options just for trash. And yes, you'll find plain white plastic trash cans here too. Because when it comes to wastebaskets, we put a lid on garbage, not choices.
