The Rubbermaid Commercial open-top trash can is a round, stainless steel garbage can with a satin finish, recessed handles, a noncorrosive base ring, and a disposal opening that measures 5-1/2 inches in diameter. Stainless steel resists rust, stains, and corrosion. The satin finish helps hide fingerprints, scratches, and smudges. Recessed side handles facilitate lifting the top and emptying the trash can. A noncorrosive ring on the base of the trash can helps protect floors from scratches. It is suitable for use outdoors as well. This trash can includes a galvanized steel liner that is stronger than aluminum and resists rust and dents. The garbage can measures 32" high and 15" in diameter and has a capacity of 15 gallons. This product is UL Listed and meets Underwriters Laboratories (UL) safety requirements. It meets 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. 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.
