Townew T1 – Smart Trash Can

Trash cans might not be an exciting thing; however, it plays a significant role in our kitchens. Furthermore, trash cans have come a long way, and nowadays, we have smart trash cans available in the market, and the TOWNEW T1 is one example. In this article, we shall be discussing TOWNEW T1 trash can features and what makes it stand out from other trash cans in today’s market.

Let us now look at some of the cool features of this smart trash can

Self Sealing

The first smart feature that I am going to talk about is self sealing capability. With the click of a button, this smart trashcan automatically seals the bag and gets it ready to dispose of. All you have to do is pick it up and throw it away. Please note that Townew uses their own trash bags which come in the form of a refill ring. Each ring consists of several bags, say 25.

Self Changing

This smart device also has the ability to self-change the bags when the older one is sealed. This makes the whole process of getting rid of your trash much easier. Whenever you take out the old bag for disposal, Townew automatically inserts a new, empty bag in the bin. So, there is no manual work involved at all. How convenient is that…

Motion Sensing

There are so many motion sensing trash cans in the market but Townew is probably the only one that has both motion sensing and self-changing. The T1 smart trash can is equipped with an in-built motion sensor that dismisses the need to touch the bin itself, making it a touchless trash can. The motion sensor fitted in this trash can helps in minimizing the spread of harmful pathogens.

Durable bags

TOWNEW T1 trash can has been designed to operate using refill rings, each equipped with 25 recyclable and highly durable trash bags. The bags are recyclable as well. One concern of mine was with the refill ring. It is made of plastic or some other material that creates a lot of waste. But luckily, Townew also has a biodegradable version which is amazing. If I ever get this bin, I would go with the biodegradable refill ring.

Keep in mind: This trash can may not work with other bags. So, you should be ready to spend money on their refill rings every time. This is a recurring revenue model. You need to know this before purchasing.


Townew supports up to 4 gallons of wastes in its bag. I know, 4 gallons is not at all sufficient for residential use but may be perfect for office or bathroom or bedroom use.

Final Verdict

This cool-looking trash bin not only has motion sensing but also other smart features like self-sealing and self-changing which makes this a smart home device. The capacity may be a bit low if you are considering it for home but is perfect for office purpose. Costing around $100, this gadget is one of the coolest gifting ideas as well.
