A waste container (known more commonly in British English as a dustbin and American English as a trash can) is a container, which is usually made out of metal or plastic, used to store refuse or garbage. Other names includerubbish bin, litter bin, trash barrel, garbage can and trash bin.
Rubbish is usually kept in these receptacles until full, at which point they are transferred via the bin bags to an outside receptacle, or simply to the roadside.
The curbside dustbins usually consist of three flavours: trash cans (metallic receptacles often made of tin or steel), dumpsters (large receptacles similar to picture on right) and wheelie bins (light, usually plastic bins that are mobile).
All of these are emptied by collectors, who will load the contents into a garbage truck and drive it to a landfill, incinerator or waste sorting facility to be disposed of or recycled.
Most bins have lids on the top to seal in the odor that trash tends to emit. Though most have to be opened manually, indoor bins sometimes have pedals which open the lid when stepped on.
Indoor bins are usually lined with bin bags, which keeps the bin itself clean. This facilitates the removal of the garbage and allows disposal with minimal contact to the contents.
A common practice is to place multiple bags in each bin once a day so that one can empty the container by removing the bag and not have to replace it, speeding up the process.
