Trash pull outs come in lots of different configurations and finishes. You can often find them with white wire, chrome wire, aluminum or even powder coated frames. The frame of a trash pull out is where the garbage bin(s) sit in and the slides are mounted to0.
We usually install trash pull outs on the base of the cabinet, on the sides of the cabinet, or even in the under-sink area. This allows them to fit under the countertop and inside the cabinet and slide out when we need to dispose of our trash.
Trash pull outs are a great way to add more of a permanent solution to something we use in our homes everyday. Here’s a complete list of our top rated overall trash pull outs.

What Size Trash Pull Out Will Work
This is the big question, right? It’s perhaps the most important thing when looking at an in-cabinet pull out. You will need to measure your cabinet width, depth and height. You’ll also want to measure the width inside the hinges if they are protruding into the opening.
To find the right trash pull out, you will need to find one that is a bit smaller in order for it to fit and function inside your base cabinet.
For example, if you have a cabinet opening width of 15″, you will need a trash pull out that is 14-1/2″ or smaller for it to work.
Standard cabinet opening sizes are 9″, 12″, 15″, 18″, 21″, 24″ and so on.
Do you have a frameless cabinet? These will be a lot easier to fit trash pull out for as there is no frame surrounding the cabinet opening.
How to Install a Trash Pull Put
This is the fun part. Most manufacturers try and make it as easy as possible for you to install their products. They will usually include paper templates, screws, and any hardware needed.
All the products we mention on our list will come pre-assembled. What do we mean by this? We simply mean that right-out-of-the-box, these trash pull outs will be ready to be installed.
Depending on your specific cabinet and the trash pull out, you may need to do some simple modification to allow the slides to function properly.
You may need to put a false wood panel in the base to raise the slides over the lip of the cabinet floor. Or, if using a side mounting trash pull out, you may need to place a strip of wood to screw the slides into the side of the cabinet wall.
