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 trigger zone is a focused space directly above the lid. It's easy to reach when you want to use the bin, but doesn't mistakenly 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 conveniently 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.

Q & As

simplehuman Sensor Bin, 40L 3.3 5 3 3
Updated Review - see Mave23 Returned this bin as previous review (Very disappointed - Mave23). Great response from John Lewis (as ever) and Simple Human. We now have a replacement bin, which is much quieter though still some noise. Having said that the bin is a great shape and works really well. We have given 4 stars because customer service was fantastic. 13 August 2014
Very disappointed The bin has just arrived. It looks good and sits nicely in the kitchen however it is very noisy, grinding and squealing every time it opens and closes. Unfortunately this is going to be returned. 09 July 2014
Excellent Love this product. Worth the extra money. No touch no fingerprints. 07 January 2014
