    About this item

    The Hefty Step-On 13-Gallon Trash Can is one of the most convenient trash disposal solutions available. It's just the right size for high-volume areas, like the kitchen, garage or office workroom. The Hefty step on trash can also works well in places like a side yard, where you sometimes need a trash can and don't want to empty it frequently. The solid black color gives it that out-of-the-way look, even if you store it out in the open. Hefty's step-on lid means that you don't have to use a hand to raise the trash can's lid. The pedal is easy to use for both kids and grown-ups. The black trash can has a broad base so it doesn't topple and a ring to secure the trash bag. The 13-gallon size is not too big and not too small; trash bags are available separately. Hefty is a name that's synonymous with quality and durability, and this black trash can exceeds those expectations.

    This trash can also makes a great gift for those just setting up house. The Hefty step-on trash can is the ideal place to put your family's trash.

    • Step-on foot pedal to raise lid
    • Black trash can with hands-free usage
    • Holds 13 gallons/49 liters
    • Uses 13-gallon trash bags

    Great trashcan for a great price

    Customer review by NeedToSaveMoney

    Finally, I found a step-on trash can that did not cost an arm and a leg. Why spend $90 or more for a trash can? Buy this one. My last plastic trash can lasted me 15 years, and I expect it will be no different for this one.

    Customer review by esbeedee

    5.0 stars by esbeedee

    Bought this for my son's apt at college with 4 guys using it...and it has held up! Looked at much more expensive cans and decided on this one, since price was an issue with the others. I only wish it were a matte finish, as it does show scratches since it's shiny and the top and sides do show signs of wear...so that is my only complaint. Otherwise, it's a great trash can!! I expect it will last like my previous hefty can that we bought like 17 years back and we are still using for a recycle bin because it no longer matches our decor in the kitchen.

    i am looking for the trash can for the outdoors and have verry difficult time finding one on your web site.thank you milica

    • This will definitely NOT meet your needs. I'm not impressed with it for indoor, kitchen use! Good luck!

    • It is all plastic therefore waterproof. The only consideration might be its lighter weight might make it susceptible to higher winds. On a typical deck - go for it.

    • It may be used outside in a good environment. I would suggest a flat surface for the foot pedal to work properly. But the lid fits well over the can to keep out rain. Can't help but wonder what the shiny appearance would look like after being outside in rain, dust?

    • This is definitely an indoor (generally kitchen) trash can. Too lightweight to stand up to being outdoors.

    • I would not use the Hefty 13gal. step on trash can outside, since it is plastic but not that thick. You need a can with a top that stays in place. Good luck!

    • I probably wouldn't use this trash can outdoors--plastic isn't as thick as an outdoor can.

    • I wouldn't. I'd think it would crack and break under really cold temperatures.

    I would like to be able to take the lid off to clean or have open during parties for easy drop in. Is this unit able to do so
    by Debbie 10/7/2012
    • Yes, it does and after cleaning you can adjust it so it will open back up with your foot.

    • Yes, the lid comes off easily for cleaning. Put it back on when it is horizontal only.

    • Yes, but I'd say taking it on and off frequently the nobby protrusions that fit into the holes or the holes would wear down and break off...making the push up foot levered lid inoperable over time.

    • Yes you can take the lid off and on. It's a little temperamental to put on, but well worth it. I love it. You just have to be gentle when taking it off and on to often. It's perfect for what you want it for.

    • this has a cool feature. although you can take the lid off, if you don't use the pedal and simply open it with your hand, it stays open.

    • Yeah, it's hinge will pop right off and back on again, as long as you're somewhat careful doing it.

    • The Lid is removable. The unit's lid is not designed to remain open. Perhaps you can put a weight on the lever.

    That appears it would be the only functional difference. I just want to know before I buy and not expect it to do something I had hoped it would.
    by Wally5656 12/9/2012
    • it is only plastic no hydraulically. not noisy. you put your foot on the pedal it open and once you take your foot off it is closed--like now.

    • No not that fancy...a plastic flat piece gets pushed up from the back bottom by the foot lever and pushes the lid up. The plastic flat piece and the lid are not connected. It's a plastic lid and body so the noise is minimal unlike metal against metal. I've only had it for a few weeks...I liked the Simple Human 13 or 15 gallon one but I didn't want stainless steel. It was more expensive but it's probably better constructed.but so far I'm very satisfied with my purchase...it's functional for the price.

    • It lowers noiseless but quickly not slowly

    • I love it, no it raises when you put your foot on the pedal and drops when you move your foot, but the bag is on it, so I never notice slamming noise at all. It's a little difficult to get the lid on at first but for the price you can't beat it. No more slam dunking the garbage and no buying batteries. Totally the best garbage can I've ever had for that price. Love the black and it was a little scratched when it came from the store, but with the shine you can't tell. It's wonderful, I love it. No hydraulics but you won't be sorry considering the price. I have 2 one for garbage and one for can's side by side :) Matches my black and chrome kitchen and those motion sensor ones open when you walk by :)

    • There is no hydraulic parts to this trash can. The lid is operated with just a lever mechanism. Although I'm confused by your question, I can say that there's no noise when opening this trash can.

    • Nope... No hydraulics in use here. But hey, for $15-$20, buy this one and then go plant a true. Mother Nature will love you for it!

    • No, it's a mechanical lever. If you remove your foot, the lever falls, but it doesn't really make much noise as it's lightweight plastic hitting lightweight plastic. But it's sturdy enough for kitchen trash.

    • No, it does not operate hydraulically. The foot pedal activates the plastic mechanism in the back. Unfortunately, that would be a bit more expensive to produce, which is why it is on the more expensive models.

    • It does not close slow. When you lift your foot off it just shuts, but it is NOT loud.
