Product Description

The Rubbermaid Commercial Defenders step trash can is a square, galvanized steel garbage can that has a foot pedal that lifts the lid to enable hands-free waste disposal and has a powder-coated finish. It complies with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard 1910.1030 on bloodborne pathogens for the safe containment of infectious waste. The piano-hinge lid has a restraining mechanism to help prevent the lid from flipping backward. Galvanized steel is stronger than aluminum and resists rust and dents. The powder-coated finish of this trash can resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear. This trash can includes a rigid, leak-resistant plastic liner to help contain liquids. Retainer bands hold a disposable liner securely in place and out of sight (liners sold separately) . This product complies with regulations outlined in Title IV of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1987 regarding nursing home care; Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Standard 242 for open-top, non-metallic wastepaper containers; and Factory Mutual (FM) Approvals Standard 6921 for combustible waste 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.

Rubbermaid manufactures cleaning, organizing, and material handling products for commercial, medical, and industrial applications. The company, founded in 1933, is headquartered in Huntersville, NC.

I bought a pair of these for my kitchen, one for trash, one for recycling. These were for a small space that would not work with counter depth cans and I thought most cans with the alternate hinge placement were too curved to look right side-by-side. I also wanted them in white, not stainless. That left me with few choices until I stumbled upon these commercial models. They are square bottomed, so they look really right next to each other. Taking up just one square foot each, these are a good use of space - other 12-gallon cans are curved or tapered, wasting space. And, when you are already spending $100+ for a darned trash can, it makes sense to buy these commercial models, which are made in the USA and will surely outlive any other trash can. I don't expect to be purchasing another trash can as long as I live.

As for performance, the retension bands hold a standard kitchen trash bag securely. THIS MODEL LACKS A RIGID PLASTIC LINER, however, which I found annoying for the can I am using for recycling, since I don't use a bag and instead pick up the liner to take it out to the yard to dump in my recycling bin. If you want a liner, you can get one for a few $ more with this one. One feature these lack are the struts found in Simple Human cans that allow the lids to fall slowly. These Rubbermaid ones will slam, although with the rubber gasket, they don't slam too hard. Although these are very solid cans, the sonstruction could be a little better - the feet are not exactly level so one of mine wobbles a tiny bit, although that can be adjusted with a pare of vise grips. The weight on these is not overwhelming, but they are probably heavy and stout enough to resist dogs and kids. One note - the bottoms of these cans are not sealed, so if you want the bottom airtight to match the airtight lid, just get a tube of caulk.

I bought this gorgeous red trash can because we use the bigger version at work, so I know it's tough. I wanted red, and this is a nice true red. I really wanted retro, but the selection is slim. This trash can has a polished industrial look, yet it fits in with my slightly retro kitchen. I love the look and the durability, but there is a very frustrating design flaw with the unlined can. There's 2 metal protrusions, one on each inner side, that tear the trash bag when you pull it out for removal. Frustrating! We deal with it by making sure not to let the bag get too full, and with extra manhandling. Even being careful we end up with a lot of ripped bags. I'm guessing the lined version doesn't have this problem.

I love this trash can!

For about a year or so I've been using one of those sensor based trashcans. It's a half circle shape with custom 13 gallon liners. It takes four C batteries that last about six months. In every way, this trashcan is better for real world use.

1: it's well built and will last forever. The only issue I had was slightly squeaky hinges out of the box, which were corrected with a little lithium grease spray I had sitting around. You should have some kind of spray lubricant around the home... if you don't, get some from Amazon for all hinged things. While I broke the electronic can I used to have, this pedal system is more robust and doesn't depend on batteries.

2: 24 gallons is a much better size. Because it's square shaped, this trashcan takes up only slightly more space than the half circle can that is close to half the size. I use 30 gallon Glad forceflex bags, which are very good quality but at thirty cents per bag are also much cheaper than the custom 13 gallon ones I used to use. I have a few small trashcans in bathrooms and my home's office, so it's handy to have a little extra space in the 30 gallon bag. I found the 13 gallon bags just aren't big enough for to last the week.

3: I think it's highly functional. There are two halfsquare metal half rings inside that hold the bag inside, and if you raise the back one, the lid stays open (which is mainly useful when cleaning the can). The thick rubber seal provides sufficient cushion if you slam the lid down, but I usually step off the pedal gracefully enough that this isn't needed. The can is highly stable, and the mechanism is robustly constructed. No assembly was needed. There are vent holes at the bottom, which is my preference.

The can is great. I don't think that it's marketed for this particular market that's buying it. I'm thinking that emergency rooms have different trash bags than I do in my kitchen.

The man in me still says its a great can. The woman next to me is looking at me with a glance that screams "What about the fact that none of the trash bags we buy fit it, and those little folded out metal tabs in the corner tear out everything when you remove the bag?" She is right, these are huge problems. The can is delivered to you incomplete and you are left to figure out what you can do with it. Stretching other kitchen garbage bags doesn't work; they're small and it gives the little corner teeth extra incentive to tear out the bottom of the bag of cat puke you forgot about.

The angel/demons in me says that this thing should be shipped with a liner. The smaller version of this can does, so why not this one? The can is $150 and the spew of blown plastic that is marketed as a liner is over $75. However the smaller can that comes with the liner doesn't cost significantly less than the larger version.

This thing would approach the awful price you're considering paying for it if it had a liner. Without a liner, you're just setting yourself up for problems you're probably not even willing to consider when it comes to garbage cans. Messy, tearing problems. With a liner, you're living in the future and flying to work
