The Rubbermaid Commercial Brute garbage can is a round, injection-molded, LLDPE trash can with a reinforced rim, non-slip handles, and a double-ribbed base. LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) has greater resistance to dents, cracks, punctures, and ultraviolet (UV) rays than LDPE (low-density polyethylene). This trash can has a reinforced rim for added strength, built-in non-slip handles for nesting multiple trash cans without jamming when storing, and a double-ribbed base for stability. It measures 31-1/2" high and 24" in diameter and has a capacity of 44 gallons. This product can support compliance with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point Principles and Application (HACCP) food safety guidelines. It is included in the list of accepted meat and poultry equipment published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Marketing Service. It meets National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) Standard 2 for use in food handling and processing and NSF/ANSI Standard 21 as a thermoplastic garbage can intended for the indoor or outdoor storage of refuse. The garbage can is suitable for use with various accessories including a top, a lid, caddies, dollies, and disposable trash can liners (each sold separately).
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. Other waste containers 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 can receptacles typically include an ashtray on top for cigarette disposal. Trash cans are used in virtually all commercial and industrial environments.
