These outdoor trash receptacles will often have some kind of cover that will both keep any waste inside the bin while also making the can easily accessible. Some of these covers may have flap doors in the front while others may simply have a lid with open sides.
In addition to these features, businesses must also consider the size and construction of outdoor commercial trash cans. It is possible to purchase smaller 24 gallon cans or, for more extreme use, businesses may want 45 or even 65 gallon bins. Larger bins cost more and take up more space, but also do not have to be maintained with as much frequency. The majority of bins are now made of plastic, but metal versions are also available. While outdoor trash bins are decidedly a practical purchase, there are some stylistic differences between bins, so choosing one with the right color and texture is also possible.
