What size trash can can you fit in a 15" space?

frontMarch 4, 2014

I want to add a 15" pullout trash base cabinet. What size trash can would fit in there? Will a double trash (one for recyclables fit)? Also, do you suggest making the entire height a trash compartment or to have a drawer on top?

Front, perfect question since I only have two cabinets that are 15" wide to use or I have to put the trash can under the sink. I wish I could help you but hopefully others will know the answer.

In the line of cabinets we sell, the 15" wide is a single trash can, and the 18" and 21" are double. The full height is a full height door but it has a roll out tray above the can, so the can is still at the same height, if that makes sense.

We have a drawer above ours - its perfect for holding the trash can liners, and it happens to also be next to the cooktop, so that's where we put mitts and pot holders.

I just looked on Kitchensource.com and I think the question is how wide the opening for the cabinet is, not how big the cabinet is. So assuming a typical 15" frameless cabinet with 3/4" sides, the opening would be 13-1/2".

Looks like this one will fit.

We have exactly what sjhockeyfan posted in a 12" interior width cabinet. We completely enclosed the trash compartment and have a drawer on top for dishtowels.

We have the waste pails that sjhockeyfan posted, but I got them at Lowe's for about $50. We threw out the pull-out system because our cabinet maker made one for them.

I'm confused by your post WindyCity - you paid $50 for two trash cans that came with the pullout system but you threw out the pullout system and just kept the cans?

In one half of my 30" frameless cabinet (so the equivalent of a 15" frameless) I have the rev-a-shelf double trash pullout. The pullout frame is 11.5" wide, and the height from base to top of can is 19".

I don't understand how a pull-out "drawer" and 2 plastic bins can cost min. $200. That seems outrageous to me.
What about IKEA, do they have something more reasonably priced?

I have a 15" frameless cabinet for my trash cans. We bought the rev-a-shelf 27 quart 2 can pull outs from Lowes. They're the RV size. The online price shows about $60. We also got the door mounting kit, which was less than $20. The cans are smallish, but we empty regularly anyway. We went with the 2 can versus the 1 large can so we could have a bin for recyclables. We've been using it for over a year with no issues.

Thank you everyone again for so many good ideas. Thank you Kathec for letting us know where you bought your rev-a-shelf 27 quart 2 can pull out. I am going to look this up since I prefer two smaller trash cans and to empty them frequently.
