    Choosing the best small trash can can be complicated. What's good for the office isn't good for the bathroom or the kitchen. As you might have deduced, your primary concern when purchasing a small trash can is where it will be used. If you need one for under the desk in the office, a durable wire mesh basket is ideal. For the bathroom, you want something that's easy to clean, accepts a disposable bag, and has a lid for discreteness. In the bedroom, a heavy-duty plastic wastebasket that fits the room's decor is fine. For the kitchen, you want a metal trash can that is easy to clean, has a lid to help keep in odors, accepts bags, and opens via a foot pedal.
