The automatic model is sensor controlled and has a lid which quickly opens when the trash bag gets about 10 inches and 130 degree angles from the can's sensor. With normal usage, the power will last about 6 months with 4 D-size batteries. For those that do not require trash bags, the inner bucket can be easily removed and cleaned when the trash is removed and taken out.
Businesses may also be interested in outdoor commercial trash cans for more private use. To this end, there is a good selection of large and sturdy outdoor trash receptacles that are designed more for large loads and easy movement. These bins are often made of durable plastic and have either easy-grip handles or wheels for easy trash disposal.
