If you’re on the search for a trash pull out for your kitchen, look no further.
We’ve compiled some of the best out there. From very basic to high-end, each trash pull out offers great functionality and benefits. Each option has various characteristics to notice such as, finishes, can sizes, slide capabilities and install difficulty.
Just a simple disclaimer here: make sure the measurements of your cabinet are appropriate for the trash pull out. Determining whether you have face frame or frameless cabinetry can help when choosing a waste container as well.
Also, many of these pull outs discussed have options for single bin or double bin versions and will work with a drawer above it in a base cabinet, however some larger 50qt. waste bin cans will need a full height base cabinet with no drawer above.
Some questions to consider…
Before investing in a trash pull out system for your home, evaluate the type of environment it will be used in.
- Do you have a heavy traffic kitchen?

- What type of trash volume is generated?
- Do you need something easy to clean?
