[Home Depot] EKO stainless steel motion sensor trash can $59.98

Was looking for a kitchen trash can for the new house, found this little gem: HDX 40 L Motion Sensor Trash Can


https://www.homedepot.ca/product/hdx-40-l-motion-sensor-trash-can/1000846756

Judging from the model # and some Q&A responses, it is a rebranded EKO USA product. EKO makes some of the best sensor bins on the market. Slightly larger (45-50L) models are usually around US$80-120+, at CAD$60 it is a great deal.

Batteries (4xAA) are not included.

Google and Alexa making your life too easy?!? Lol...

Stepping on a lever to open the lid isn't too hard either!Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Winking Eye

I'm more worried about having to change those batteries....

I have this since last year and it’s great. Since last august I’ve had to change the batteries only once. It is convenient to have. No hiccups and a year later works flawless. I shopped around and this was the cheapest option and glad I bought it. No complaints from me :)

Bought it two years ago on boxing day for $39… every one who saw it… loved it…. As for the batteries i don’t remember changing it and even if i have i only changed it once …
Its a pretty good trash can
P.S. : if you find lots of spelling mistakes in my above comment. This is what happens when you use the physical Keyboard (Blackberry) your whole life and then you have to settle with a virtual Keyboard.

The motor can also fail, why we never went sensor again and do not regret getting a manual SimpleHuman on sale, 10y warranty.

I have owned two motion activated garbage cans for two years albeit a different brand and have had zero issues, the lid is lightweight so not tough on battery or the motor, people who complain about them don't seem to be speaking from real experience.

In for one. I would like a hybrid where you can step on it too, but I guess that would be challenging with an electric motor.

Have a motion activated garbage can from Costco bought years ago. Hardly had to replace the 4 D sized batteries. Sensor having issues now, have to manually open, then sensor would work for a few days, then kaput again. Looking for a step one to replace.

Motion sensor garbage cans is a game changer. I pity those that don’t have it yet. It’s better than the manual step because spring for the step often gives out after couple years depending how hard you step on it.

Also had this for about two years now, switched the batteries a couple times but it's definitely a rare occasion. Love that it uses AA batteries which are way cheaper than the D batteries used by others.
The five red LEDs make it pretty easy to tell when it'll shut on you, and you can tap on "Open" beside the LEDs to just keep it open until you press "Close."

It's been fantastic so far, no regrets buying at regular price. We use 30 gallon bags but you can probably get away with smaller ones. Not having the hole where the step lever would have been means there's no dust or cat hair under the garbage can.
