No one enjoys taking out the trash. It’s gross, and there’s no worse feeling than when a bag leaks, or when the bag was placed incorrectly over the bin and you have to go diving to get remaining bits of rubbish.

To buy: Townew Smart Trash Can, $143 (originally $159) at amazon.com

This 3.4-gallon trash can looks at first glance like a typical garbage bin. But it’s truly the future of how all trash cans should be from now on. The most notable feature is that after adding a roll of bags to the top of the can, the bin will automatically open the bag over itself, making it ready to use. When it fills up, it uses thermoplastic sealing technology to seal the bag up, and prompts you to take it out. Once you do, it opens another bag, and the cycle repeats itself.

Beyond this groundbreaking technology, the trash can also has motion sensor technology, meaning it will open automatically whenever you get close to it. If you need it to be open for longer, you just have to press a button and it will stay open until you close it. And the can itself looks sleek, too. If you didn’t know any better, you might think it was just built into your kitchen.  a regular old white box.

While this trash can is going viral on TikTok, it’s also raking up five-star Amazon reviews as we speak. So far, shoppers love it for how convenient it has made such a mundane chore. One shopper writes, “This is one of my favorite household items!” adding how impressed they are with the ability to just toss the trash and have it sealed up. “To top it all off the design is modern looking and elegant,” they add.

Another customer calls this trash can a “must have,” writing that they love that “it detects motion and opens up so you can easily throw away the garbage.” 

It’s time your trash can got with the times. Add this futuristic bin to your home for just $143 today.
