Outdoor Trash Cans
Built to withstand years of all-season use, outdoor trash cans are tough, weather-resistant, and available in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials and colors, making them the perfect choice for frequent, heavy-duty trash disposal. Use these tips to determine which trash can size is ideal for your needs:
- For construction sites, multi-occupant households, renovation projects, or just some serious spring cleaning, a large can with a 35 to 50 liter capacity is ideal.
- For smaller households or occasional trash removal, consider a 20 to 30 liter can.
- Opt for an open-top garbage tub that's easy to carry and empty into a larger container for smaller projects.
Helpful Hint: To better keep trash categorized – for example, keeping recyclable items separate from household waste – buy two or three distinctly colored cans. Or, for outdoor gathering places such as patios or decks, pick out attractive trash receptacles or cans with hinged lids to combine form with function.
Trash Bags and Holders
With the exception of dry, solid and non-perishable items, garbage should be placed in a trash bag before being put into a can. Ace Hardware offers a wide selection of bags and can liners, designed to fit a range of trash receptacles.
For general household use, any lightweight liner bag will suffice. For heavier loads, yard debris and outdoor trash, or sharp, pointed objects, opt for heavy-duty liner bags designed with thick, flexible material that stretch to resist puncturing. Consider using odor-blocking bags, which use fresh scents and odor-neutralizing agents to keep smells at bay.
Helpful Hint: When it's time to collect leaves, grass and other yard waste, buy heavy-duty purpose-made paper bags. These trash bags are large, tough and recyclable, satisfying municipal requirements for yard waste collection.
