I purchased 4 of the 31 gallon cans and 3 of the 6 gallon cans to use for chicken feed and dog/cat food. Thank you to the reviewer who warned about the cans sticking together, it took a while to find a stack I could seperate. These are not the heavy duty cans I remember from childhood, but for chicken feed they are perfect. Lids fit tightly but I could see them denting easily if used as a trash can. All that aside I think it is a good value.
THESE CANS WILL HOLD ALOT OF AT RISK ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT IN THE EVENT OF AN EMP OR SOLAR DISRUPTION. A GREAT CHEAP FARADAY CAGE. JUST MAKE SURE TO LINE THE INSIDE WITH SOMETHING TO INSULATE THE ELECTRONICS AND KEEP THEM FROM TOUCHING THE METAL. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.
We were having trouble with squirrels chewing through our older garbage cans and purchased these. Problem solved with these steel cans. However, a family of 5 will need to purchase several of these since they are on the smaller side and can only hold about 2 (not that big) bags of garbage each. There are no wheels so you will also have to carry these down to the curb. However, there are handles that make this somewhat easier.
Pros: Cost Effective, Easy to Use, High Quality, Long-Lasting, Effective
Got these cans after squirrels ate through all of our plastic ones and even our neighbor's heavy duty (expensive) rubber ones. These metal cans with lids do the trick. Only issue: getting them to the curb (no wheels). Would like to buy the cart but the online reviews aren't good for the cart. Great cans, though! No trash on driveway!
Pros: High Quality, Long-Lasting, Effective
Cons: harder to get to curb than cans w/ wheels, handles could use rubber padding-carrying hurts!
I purchased a metal trash can on line for in-store pick up. It's a trash can, what can I say? I did note that the rivets that hold the handle on to the lid look poorly made but only time and use will tell how they stand up. I would probably recommend the trash can. It appears to be identical in quality and price to the ones being sold by other similar retailers.
