Very well made.
Louis J. Deglomini
This is a great container for the dog food because of it's great size and it sure keeps unwelcomed critters from getting into the bag of dog food.

Its also much easier to scoop the food out of this bin.

I have abused this trash can more severely than any other item I own. Mine has been put to use in ways I'm sure its designers could never have intended, but it has held together nontheless. Whether you're using it to build snowmen, cage small animals that have invaded your garage, or kick repeatedly to take out the aggression that goes along with spring cleaning, this trash can will not take much damage. And yes, it also keeps those small animals I mentioned out of your trash if that's your goal. Slap some duct tape on the lid to keep it from being torn off and you've got a fortress in which to store your more delicious trash. Not even the most cunning racoon will be able to breach its walls.

True enough, mine is dented in many places (though only slightly), and the one drawback to its design is that the bottom is about a half inch off the ground, meaning heavier loads can cause stress to its structure. Fortunately, any major dents can be beaten back into shape, and the only reason the bottom of mine is sagging is because of an extremely heavy load I once used this can to transport.

If you need a sturdy trash can and you don't want to pay a ton of money for a Brute-brand can, then go with this one. A lesser can would be scattered around my lawn in pieces, but this one has survived and remains the most durable trash can I have ever owned.

I purchased 2 trash cans to store horse feed in. They work perfect. Light and easy to store. They fit 2 1/2 bags of feed and keep rodents stay out of the feed. They chewed thru rubbermaid containers. I don't know that I would use them for trash, they are light weight and would get dented very easy. Excellent for my application.

Size Name: 31-Gallon
Purchased three of these cans for work. They came stacked inside each other (as expected) but we could absolutely not get them apart. It's like they were fused together or something. After many attempts to seperate we started trying some tools...rubber mallet, crowbar, etc. The metal is so thin that they now look pretty beat up. Still not apart, they're sitting in the corner of the warehouse looking like something that we salvaged from a hailstorm. Should have gotten something more heavy duty or at least purchased them individually or something. What a waste.

Fast delivery. The cans are made of somewhat thinner metal than I expected, but they are good value for their size and for money we paid. Above all, squirrels will be unable to gnaw and perforate them as they did with our plastic ones.

I've had racoons get into all the plastic food storage containers I stored my dog food in. This bad boy has held up nicely for the last year, totally waterproof and racoon proof with no signs of wear and tear yet. However, it can be found locally for about $10 less.

I bought these cans to keep out vermin. And they work 100%. But if you put the can to the street for pick up they come back all banged up and dented. The metal is extremely light duty. Nothing like the cans your parents had. But in their defense they are inexpensive. So I have the tenants dump out the metal into the plastic on pick up day.

As others have said this can isn't the heavy duty galvanized metal cans of your youth. You can easily bend the can and the lid with your fingers. Notice I didn't say hand I said fingers. The idiot that packed my can placed the lid next to the side of the can instead of on top, even though there was plenty of room. Of course the lid was a crescent shape upon arrival even though the outer box showed no signs of distress. I was easily able to reshape the lid with my fingers. The handles on can are less than heavy duty too. I have about 45 lbs in the can and the handles are stretching. Long term use in this manner will break the handles.

I gave this three stars because I read the reviews before ordering and pretty much knew what I was getting. I didn't need this can for use as a trash can that would get manhandled by garbage men on a weekly basis. It wouldn't last three months for that purpose. I only needed it to store about 45 lbs of seldom accessed dry goods in my garage. So for that purpose it is probably just barely tough enough.

If you're buying this can for regular use, it will not last. If you're buying it for occasional use maybe it will fit the bill.

After losing a couple of plastic trash containers to critters chewing through them I purchased two Behrens metal cans in 2005. I've had years of use from these cans which have held their shape with the lid still seating tightly. I guess one of the secrets to maintaining them in good condition is that I only use them for trash storage then place the plastic bags on the curb the day of trash collection Vs placing the can on the curb where the trash collectors would rough handle them. Overall a quality American made product that lasts. See if the cheap Chinese metal can you buy at a box store lasts as long!
