The Rectangular Touch Bar Trash Can is a great alternative to the classic soft touch or pedal bin and holds up to 10.5 Gallons (40L). Just tap the touch-bar gently with a hand or nudge with a knee to release the latch and open the lid--and it stays open until you are ready to close it, which makes it ideal while preparing food or finishing up long chores.

I'm sorry. I don't live in a dorm room. So the cleanliness and function of a garbage can is importannt to me. I owned a Brabantia can for a number of years. And while I loved it, especially it's touch latch, I've learned a few things over the years. Around can won't take a lot of garbage items without effort. Therefore a rectangle works better. Step openers protrude inches more into the room and get yuckie to some degree without constant cleaning. For its current location it couldn't work better. the latch can be opened with the back of a hand or even with your knee if both your hands are full. And that makes it easier to keep clean. Obviously the stainless is easier to keep clean. So if the price is too much, I'm sorry . Cheaper plastic cans do fine for some but eventually become charged (static electricity) and things like pet hair and even human hair get attracted to them. Likewise, the surfaces obtain an uneven sheen from cleaning etc. So what can I say, it's the perfect can.
When u push the bar to open the trash can how does it close? Do u have 2 push it back down? - Asked about product SH-CW2014
To close the trash can, push the lid down until you hear a click.

Hello there I'm interested in ordering the simplehuman stainless steel 10.5 gallon rectangular can, but i would like to know if u have to remove the liner to change the bag? Do u have to pull it out? What size bags do u need? - Asked about product SH-CW2014
This trash can has a lift-off lid. The lid lifts off easily for a quick
bag change. The bucket does not need to be completely pulled out, it has a bucket park so you can pull part of the can out and sit it for an easy bag change.
