simplehuman Butterfly Sensor Bin, 48L

Product information

simplehuman's sensor bin is a cleaner, easier way to manage your rubbish. By reacting and adapting to your behaviour, it won't open unexpectedly or close before you've finished your task. The 'butterfly' bin opens from the centre, offering maximum clearance when placed under counter tops.


  • "Trigger Zone" focused space directly above the lid - easy to reach when you want to use the bin, but doesn't trigger when you walk nearby.
  • Once the lid is open, the trigger zone extends to become more sensitive to activity. That way the bin is sure to know if you're still in the area, so the lid won't close before you've finished your task.
  • For longer chores, like changing the liner or cleaning up after dinner, the lid stays open for an extended period. After 3 seconds of continued activity, the bin switches to a 30-second stay-open mode even if you step away

A clever bin needs a clever liner that stays hidden and is easy to remove. Check for letters and colour codes to get the right size.
