It’s hard to beat the convenience of a hands-free trash can. Step trash cans offer a balance between hands-free access and low-tech solutions. Measure the height, width, and depth of the space you have available to narrow down your choices. These trash cans come in slim, round, oval, and rectangular designs. Flatback models take up less kitchen space as slim designs. If you like to keep your recycling separate, there are models with two or three compartments. Your material options include plastic, stainless steel, or rubber. Plastic is usually the least expensive, but both stainless steel and rubber have better durability. If the trash can will be visible, you may want to go with stainless steel, as it blends with modern kitchen appliances.
