    This Trashcan, because it is somewhat square in shape makes it suitable for indoor use as well as outdoor. Myself I use it as a "Kitchen Dumpster" as it holds 39 gallon bags and only needs to be emptied once per week instead of numerous times like your typical whimpy 13 gallon refuse can.

    Comments about Rubbermaid® Roughneck® 30 Gallon Trash Container (2979EVG) - 6 Pack:

    Because of it's narrow design - it doesn't cramp space for the car in the garage. The lid fits securely & it's not flimsy. We've used this type of garbage can for over 20 yrs. Glad they still make it.

    The lid is the only thing that has worn out from the sun and weather. I hate to have to by a new trash can just to get the lid. Can I buy just the lid .

    so sorry, had the old one forever and wanted one just like it. Went to Fleet Farm store in Germantown wi and could not fined a single lid or container a tight fit. First strong wind or raccoon would flip it right off

    Its rectangular size makes it perfect for tight garages.  The cans are durable and I can't say enough about how much we love them.  Biggest problem - finding a retailer that carries them.

          We use these trashcans for cleanup in our roofing business. They're durable and best of all, they won't roll off a roof. The handles will break if overloaded, but still the best trash can for our purposes.

          Great product, I still have one of the original cans from 25 years ago. Wish you could buy single units as I did not need six garbage cans which is the only way to purchase them. Works very well in a narrow garage and they don't blow around like the round ones. I hope these last as long as the original cans and with six I'll never have to buy one again.

          Even though I only needed four. I found there was no place I could purchase just that number. Ace had the six pack at the best price and delivered to my local store. I may never use the other two cans, but If a neighbor needs one I can sell it to them for cost. These cans will out live me. Made as tough as the ones I bought 30 years ago. Can't say that about many things anymore.

          Comments about Rubbermaid® Roughneck® 30 Gallon Trash Container (2979EVG) - 6 Pack:

          I have used just about every trash can ever made due to owning a lawn care company and have to say that this one is one of the best, the things I like about it is how slender it is so it is easier to store and is not in the way as much at job sites. Also when it goes to the curb if it is windy no problome it falls over and thats it where with the round ones they begin to travle down the street.

            The first ones I bought were brown rectangular, and about 28 gallon size. That was 30 years ago. The next batch looked the same as these. They have lasted about 15 years. I even still have an origional brown one left, 30 years old and still in use!I have always used these in the kitchen as waste baskets. We take them out 2 or 3 or 4 times a week depending on what is in them and how much is in them. Doing this we don't have a smell problem.I use 33 gal bags with them.I had them shipped to the store. [...]When I went looking for new garbage cans, these were the only ones I wanted. The price was very good too.Super product! Wouldn't buy anything else!

            This Trashcan, because it is somewhat square in shape makes it suitable for indoor use as well as outdoor. Myself I use it as a "Kitchen Dumpster" as it holds 39 gallon bags and only needs to be emptied once per week instead of numerous times like your typical whimpy 13 gallon refuse can.

            I have also used this bucket for years and it finally gave up. I have searched all the home centers and found nothing comparable. This bucket fits perfectly next to the house in the corner by the chimney which keeps it secure in high winds and its not so big that the sanitation department has no problem picking it up (they have a size restriction). I have seen this very same bucket in a new health club so I know they are available somewhere, can you tell me where?

            I too prefer this trash can because of it's shape. I have been using it's predecessor for many years, and had decided to buy three new ones. One for trash, one for recycling and one for storing bird food, were the raccoons can't get it. I have hunted the stores, without success and decided to try on-line. I really don't understand why you show this product on your website if we can't purchase it!!!

            I've used this trash can for years and really like it, cheifly because it is not round and fits in a narrow nook in my utility room/ work shop. I would like to pruchase another one but it is not available at any our local stores. The really depressing thing is that when I logged on to this web site it is also not available. This is one of the few Rubber- maid products that has received a 5 overal rating. Please provide more information on this wonderful Rubbermaid product.

            I buy several bags of dog food for my large dogs. This is geat to store it in. It stays fresh and no bugs can get to it.Also easy to get out when time to feed the dogs!!(2) Great to store my potting dirt in too!! I buy the big bags to replant my flowers or do new ones. It keeps the soil from drying out and is so esy to get to. Easier to place in garage,because they fit side by side,not like the round one that take up to much space. Just LOVE them!! SBS
