simplehuman Plastic Swing Bin, Black, 40L

Product information

This plastic bin has a perfectly balanced swing lid with a heavy-duty hinge that opens easily and then gently swings back into place. A quick-release hinge lets you remove the lid in a snap for easy cleaning.

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.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by elegant and unobtrusive This black bin is sleek and made of good sturdy plastic which from experience I now prefer as it's silent, won't corrode or mark the flooring. The swing lid design is very user friendly. I'm not sure that I shall need to use plastic sacks as the rubbish for this bin is dry and not smelly - in my area all food/garden rubbish is kept separate for recycling. Again, being plastic, easy to wash anyway. I think it would be fun to have a choice of colours. 02 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality bin Good quality bin, fits nicely under worktop where a pedal bin wouldn't! 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful bin I have found this bin to be more user friendly than the touch bins. I have two children who find this bin easier to put rubbish in than our previous touch bin which broke after 6 months of purchase. The colour is great and suits our kitchen which is cream and black. It is also very easy to clean. Excellent purchase. 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant for recycling Strong, excellent recycling bin. Easy to use, easy to clean. Expect it will last a lifetime. Best around 01 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish bin Looking for a bin that wasn't too large – nowadays so much is in the recycling bins – this proved to be perfect. It's a substantial item with a heavy swing. It's great that there are no technical bits to go wrong, and it looks pretty good too. 09 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! Very sturdy and well made. However, it seems impossible to find black bin liners, even from simplehuman. 17 June 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great quality product Not as expensive as some of the other makes, but excellent quality and great design. 06 May 2014
