The Rubbermaid Commercial Brute rollout trash can is a rectangular, injection-molded, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) garbage can with a hinged lid for general trash collection. HDPE is stronger than low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and resists moisture and certain chemicals. The hinged lid flips open fully and locks against the trash can. An integrated handle and 8-inch rubber wheels allow for maneuverability, and the wheels are inset to help prevent damage to walls and doorways. A molded-in axle retainer adds strength. Rounded corners and smooth contours enable the trash can to be wiped clean. An ultraviolet (UV) stabilizer helps prevent fading and discoloring. This product can help earn Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits. The Rubbermaid Commercial Brute rollout trash can is suitable for use with disposable liners (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.
