Garbage, Man

Ruggedly designed to take the physical abuse only a trashcan experiences, the Thrash Can also has its softer, more sensitive side. Created by a Chicago design firm intent on producing goods with a low environmental impact, this is one trash bin that really cares. Composed of 99% reclaimed automobile tires, this waste container was made to last. Its smart design features incorporated top handles and a size perfect for re-using grocery bags as can liners. Hmm...attractive and smart? Made in the USA.

This item may smell like rubber, air it out to decrease smell.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Comments about THRASH CAN:

    The sidewalls are rather floppy and makes it extremely difficult to use any kind of liner. The smell of rubber tires is quite strong out of the box and they need to be aired out before use indoors.

    Comments about THRASH CAN:

    This is the kind of product that gives 'green' a bad name. It's an excellent idea but the product is not well designed and performs poorly. I bought 9 for a business, paying the hefty price tag in order to be more 'green'. The cans are flimsy and hard to empty/carry because they do not hold their shape. The odd design of the top makes it hard to fit and keep a liner on them.

      Comments about THRASH CAN:

      okay, so it should be said that this can really smells of rubber. obvious, probably, but it's worth mentioning because the smell is very strong for the first day or two. but when the smell fades, you have a very stylish trash can that's deep and wide, great for a modern home office.

        Fun & interesting alternative for hiding your garbage. Assembles easily. Love that it's environmentally friendly. Rubber smell disipates after having opened for a day or two.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Very prompt delivery. Would like to see more conservative shipping box options utilized - really large box for fairly compact item!

          Except for the first couple days of a strong rubber smell which dissapated after a couple days, this is a fun sturdy and easy to clean trash container. My son uses it in his room. He loves it because it holds quite a bit and has a very different look.

            It was very easy to put together, looks great, and it's large enough for an office. I love the humor of having a trash can made out of recycled materials. It is truly a great addition to any office. I'm thinking of getting another one.

              I gave this as a gift to my brother and sister-in-law. There was some assembly involved, but it wasn't complicated. It was a tad smelly, but that resolved after it was out of the packaging for about 30 minutes. We all knew it was because of the recycled rubber anyway. I thought it would be smaller, so because it was larger, that was nice. Also, before being used as trash can, it was used as a holder and carrier of other presents! Overall, we all really liked it!
