We got this step can for our boat because we needed something with a lid that was compact and easy to use. The inside has a separate hard plastic liner that has a handle allowing you to to remove and empty easily. I also purchased liners for this making it even easier to keep it clean. The "step" part is not really used by us that often but more of a hand push. The size of the can makes a bigger foot a bit awkward so for our use and where we keep it on the boat, the hand push or just lifting of the lid works great.
It really is a very nice small, compact trash can that is easy to keep sanitary and very mobile since the size allows you to take this anywhere.
