Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can

[Scroll down to view product info]

Every household creates trash, so it's a good thing Costco has the Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can. What's great about Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can is that you don't have to physically touch the garbage can when throwing out trash. This comes in handy since some trash cans can have a lot of guck on the surface forcing you to touch it when throwing something out (ie the trash cans in public places or fast food restaurants). That way you can both enjoy a touchless experience and still not have to have unsightly trash in plain view. Not only that, but the Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can even has a deodorizer, so that the trash doesn't have to smell so bad when the trash is full. You'll find that the Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can is great to have in the kitchen or garage making every other trash can just pure rubbish.

This garbage can is garbage. It didn't last a year and when it worked it was a nightmare of batteries. The 6 batteries didn't last longer then 2 weeks. Bad item, I don't recomend it to anyone.

Thanks @mel for sharing some valuable feedback on the Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can. It's definitely disappointing that it's a drain on batteries and didn't last long at all. I hope you were able to return it. Costco has a pretty good return policy when it comes to products that are defective and/or items that you are not completely satisfied with.

I've been using my trash can for about 2 months now and zero malfunctions, original batteries. I love how easy it is to keep open when I'm working in the kitchen or have it on auto mode when I'm not. I also like that it holds a regular kitchen trash liner. No special liners required. This trash can sells for a fraction of the cost of similar sensor trash cans. Clean-up is very easy and it's the most attractive trash can I've ever owned. I love it!

Can has been working great for over 2 years. The only problem with it is the "Built-in deodorizer holder". Yes, there is a holder there, but there is NOWHERE that sells a deodorizer that fits this model of trash can.

Got mine at Costco and it did not last more than 4 months.I changed batteries and then it stopped working. Lights would not even come on. This product is designed for only short life span- 4-6 months and then it is manual opening only

It sounds like your Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can is totally working out for you without any issues, @Unknown. Your feedback is definitely important to those in the market for a automatic trash can.

Hello @Anonymouse, yes that is a bit odd that there is a built-in deodorizer holder, yet there doesn't seem to be one out there that can fit in that space. I'm surprised that oversight still made it to production unless the manufacturer intended to eventually make a proprietary one (maybe).

Hi @Road_Rider, That's terrible that your Eko Motion Sensor Trash Can basically stopped working only after a few months. That kind of defeats the purpose of having an auto trash can. Maybe you just got the unfortunate luck of getting a lemon.

I got mine in 2018 from Costco. It only needed a battery change once. Towards the last six months of its lifespan it started to malfunction occasionally where the motion sensor wouldn't read properly. We tried swapping out the batteries a second time but that wasn't the issue. At $30 I'm okay with it not being the best quality but I wanted to leave a comment so other people could get a better review through googling.
