I like the 3D-Fuel Mini trash can, but it lacks something. Moving wheels! I therefore remixed it so now it is exactly like the real thing.
I also slightly increased the inside volume for that little bit of extra trash capacity.
The wheels come in two variants, if you have a hard time making the regular wheels spin, try the ‘widerHole’ ones. Of course, reaming the hole will help as well (I have found the inside measuring prongs of a caliper to work well for this, and it allows to immediately see how much wider you have made the hole!)
Update 2017/01/19, version v2: increased the wall thickness at the top where it was rather thin. Also created a version of the insert without a bottom, useful if you want to use the trashcan as a holder for pens or other long tools.

0.1 mm and 0.2 mm
Printed in silver and black ABS. The main body is 0.2 mm, the rest 0.1.
My print shows some cracks because I was testing some new settings with too aggressive cooling.
If you want to print the bin and lid in different filaments (e.g. ABS and PLA), you may have to scale up one of them to account for different shrinkage, otherwise it could be hard or impossible to mount the lid.
If you have difficulty mounting the lid, use a knife to remove any material that seems to be in the way (this can be the case especially if your first layer is squashed too much).
