A stylish trash can with integrated sensor.
The simplehuman Rectangular Sensor Trash Can with Fingerprint-Proof Brushed Stainless Steel and Multi Sense™ adapts to your tasks. When in ready mode, the trigger zone is a focused space directly above the lid—easy to reach, but precise enough to avoid false triggers. When in task mode, once the lid is open, the trigger zone extends to become more sensitive to activity, so the lid won’t close before you’re finished. When in stay-open mode, after 3 seconds of continued activity, the lid automatically opens wider and switches to a 30-second stay-open mode—great for longer chores.

Compatible with the simplehuman Sensor Can Power Adapter (item number 782300)


  • The strong, die-cast steel hinge is built to last
  • Slam the lid down, overstuff it, or even stop it with your hand
  • The clutch system will temporarily disengage to prevent any damage to the motor
  • Runs up to 1 year with 6 alkaline C batteries, or use with the optional simplehuman power adapter (item 782300)
  • Easy access battery compartment conveniently located on the back of the can
  • No fumbling under the lid to change batteries
