A container specifically designed to hold waste and garbage of all kinds. Waste cans may be found inside homes to collect food waste, used papers and other unwanted items. Larger waste cans, known as dumpsters, are located outside commercial buildings and apartments, for the collection of larger volumes of garbage. All waste cans must be emptied regularly, so that professional collection companies can handle the safe and responsible elimination of the waste through recycling or other methods.
