No one looks forward to changing the garbage bag, and with the Townew, you don’t have to. Robots are taking over the world, and their first job is to automate that stinky chore you despise.

The Townew trash can is self-sealing and self-changing, making switching out your garbage bag a breeze. Here’s how it works: The receptacle operates with a refill ring, which can hold up to 25 trash bags. A built-in motion sensor allows you to fill the bag without ever touching it, similar to other automatic garbage bins. But there’s a difference. When the garbage is full, a button at the front of the trashcan activates the closure device. This automatically seals the bag internally, then opens the lid for you to scoop out an already sealed bag. Once removed, another bag is automatically put in its place.

Townew promises it all: No leaks, no stick and no mess.

The trashcan is powered by a rechargeable battery, which the brand estimates needs to be charged once a month. The 25 trash bags the bin holds also last about a month, which makes it a good reminder to recharge your trashcan — as weird as that sounds.

The trashcan is aesthetically pleasing, boasting a modern and minimalist look. It comes in two colors: a sleek white and a vintage-inspired light blue.

Though the trash is only 3.9 gallons, it is the perfect size for a small family or for a diaper receptacle. Plus the size doesn’t really matter if you don’t have to go through the bother of changing it. 

“Townew trash cans fit more than what you might think because the bags are automatically placed,” the brand writes on Amazon. “Each and every bag fits perfectly to the trash can, leaving no empty space.”

Yes, you do have to buy special bags to go with the device. But they won’t cost you much more than your current trash bag bill. A set of six refill rings — which contains 150 trash bags – costs $31.37. If you want a more sustainable option, the brand also has fully biodegradable refills, with 150 bags costing $47.95.

With 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, this trashcan is definitely popular. One Amazon reviewer writes, “You may not know it yet, but you need this product. I don’t want to sound overly dramatic but this product is awesome! I might go so far as to say life changing. I just bought my second one and I am never going back to a regular trash can.” Another reviewer simply says, “I didn’t think it was possible to love a trash can but I was wrong!

Well, say hello to the new love of your life, even though it’s total trash.
