The Continental Huskee BackSaver waste receptacle is a round, LLDPE trash can with molded handles to help with lifting and to allow nesting multiple trash cans for storage without jamming, and it has rolled rims for added strength. LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) resists chipping, cracking, denting, warping, and UV damage better than LDPE (low-density polyethylene). Integrated venting channels reduce the force needed to remove poly-liners (sold separately) for emptying. The can is compatible with round Huskee lids (sold separately), which snap in place to contain odor and debris within the can and keep pests out. This trash can meets National Sanitation Foundation International/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) 21-2012 for thermoplastic refuse containers.
Trash cans are used for the disposal and temporary storage of garbage. They are typically made of plastic or metal and sometimes have a top or lid to contain odors and waste. Certain garbage cans meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for the disposal of medical waste or National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) requirements for food handling and processing. Others include a lock to prevent unauthorized access, safeguard confidential materials, and comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. Waste bins can also be color-coded to facilitate the separation of recyclable waste, such as bottles, cans, paper, and general refuse. Ash/trash cans typically include an ash tray on top for cigarette disposal. Trash cans are used in virtually all commercial and industrial environments.
Continental manufactures plastic and metal products such as restroom supplies, buckets, refuse containers, carts, and trigger sprayers for the janitorial and food service industries. The company is headquartered in Bridgeton, MO.
