You won't go wrong with this basket
-- It's a waste basket, and it holds waste.
-- Nice quality.
-- Price, price, price.
Not much to say about this. It may be the most simple device in the house. Waste baskets haven't changed in millennia. This is a nice one. No defects. It's attractive. Good size for a home office.

Good looking, spacious, and very practical wastebaskets
These wastebaskets not only look nice but they serve their purpose quite well. They are large in the sense that they hold a lot of trash, but small in the sense that they don't take up a ton of space, making them very practical for the office. Not only that, but they are very sturdy and don't look like they would break if you happened to drop one or try to cram too much trash inside. They are excellent.

Bigger then I thought but works great. Doesn't seem flimsy and you can't go wrong ...
Bigger then I thought but works great. Doesn't seem flimsy and you can't go wrong for $10. Works great for under my desk.

I wouldn't have bought this if I saw it in a department store.
The Mesh Wastebasket was slightly bent upon arrival, as a few reviews have stated, however, mine is not bad enough damaged to return in my opinion. It is a little small, and I just need a garbage can next to my bed. All, in all I like it, however, perhaps buying something plastic would have been better, on the internet at least. I wouldn't buy this again since I think it's a little cheap, but for $10 what can you expect? I don't know it kinda just seems like someone stepped on it or something by mistake. Definitely slightly disappointed, but again not enough to complain, or return it. They shipped this with a microwave, so I imagine that could've been part of the problem. I plan on using this with plastic bags, and it will be hidden behind my bed basically, so I will barely see the defects. All in all, you might be better off buying this sort of thing at a store where you can see what you're buying.

Perfect - I Love It
I just received mine 2 hours ago and it's perfect! Very sturdy and looks great but larger than I thought so my only problem is that the store bags that I was using as liners for my previous one are too small! I'm quite happy about that because now I get to buy proper liners which my husband would never let me do before - I think the store bags look awful but he always argued that it was just for garbage anyway - my OCD didn't agree! lol!

5 Gallon Bags Do Not Fit
It's a good medium size and good quality, but -1 star because 5 gallon bags do not fit (18x20 inches). I plan on buying 8 gallon bags since I stocked up on 300 5 gallon bags, so I have to use em up first :(
I especially recommend this for small kitchens because it's not too small (have to toss out trash everyday) and not too large (takes more time to fill up = food decomposes, roaches, etc)
Edit 1/22/17: 8 gallon bags are a perfect fit! I ordered the "Handi-Bag" brand.

Way bigger than expected!
This wastebasket is great. It’s sturdy and actually really large. Much larger than what I would consider a standard wastebasket. I use this in my kids rooms. I purchased the Rolodex brand one first and it’s identical to this amazon basics one!
Every time I purchase something online, I always check the reviews. I count on others to help me choose the best option. My reviews are always my honest opinion and I try to include photos if possible.

Good deal if your order arrives undamaged
If your order arrives undamaged, it would be a great deal. Like many other reviews though, my wastebasket arrived with severe denting of the mesh. The shipping box looked like it had taken a lot of abuse and was re-taped. Not worth it to return, I'll just use oversized bags to wrap over the top rim and cover up the damage.
If you're looking for a flawless wastebasket, buy this at a store in person. If you don't mind dented mesh, this will work fine.

The perfect waste basket!
The perfect waste basket! I needed something sturdy to hold fabric scraps and thread clippings in my sewing room that was also large enough not to have to empty it every other day. And this is it! The mesh weave is small enough to contain the threads and strong enough to hold just about anything (haven't tried bricks yet) that I would throw in there. I don't even need a garbage bag in it. LOVE.THIS.

The Bane of Trash's Existence
This is big and rather sturdy. I now have three of them: one beside my computer and the others in my bathrooms. IMO they're the perfect size for bathrooms. I was previously using these dinky little ones that would have to be changed pretty much every day, lest they overflow and claim the bathroom as their own kingdom. This trash can can easily fit a typical 4-gallon trash bag and you won't have to change it every time you remember it's there. It's absolutely worth the price.
