The Rubbermaid Commercial sanitary trash can is a rectangular sanitary disposal system suitable for women's restrooms and other locations for the disposal of sanitary waste. A foot pedal enables hands-free trash disposal, and a deep chute helps prevent trash from getting stuck. Rounded corners and smooth contours enable the sanitary bin to be wiped clean. The Rubbermaid Commercial sanitary bin is suitable for use with SaniSense deodorizer and bin 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. 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.
