Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MTBer Other cans come and go but these outlast them all
Having a multi-unit property I have had one of these for 9 years. This is a 45G which is no longer legal to use in Canada because of the volume. This can was my favourite problem solver. Bags that have sharp objects sticking out or cat littered bags falling apart. Garbage from renovations, broken glass furniture with nails or screws in the wood. No punctures, just cuts from a circular saw from using it as a saw-horse. Tenants move in and out and leave their cans behind. After a year they are usually finished and have to be cut up and put in the Brute container that came with the building. I bought 3 32G cans last year because I was running out of Garbage cans. No need for pictures, the new ones are still mint, if that is the right word to use for a garbage can.
I bet two of these could hold up my car.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Erick Excellent Structure and Built Tough
I used this can to create a dry well. The material is thick and the can held its structure despite drilling several holes in it. I can only imagine that if it is able to hold up under these unusual conditions, that it can do its intended job.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TrashCanReviewer Lid is a breeding ground for mosquitoes
The trash can is made of really good quality plastic and the cover sits tight. However, the flat topped trash can lid with concave inset accumulates water after it rains. In warm summers this is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Do not buy this product if you want to keep your backyard mosquito free. Buy a trash can with a dome shaped lid. See the attached picture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GarbageMan The Best!!
I have been a Garbage Man for nine years and have NEVER seen a broken Brute trash can. During the winter months, just about every can in the market breaks from freezing. They shatter like glass. Brute trash cans are the only cans that survive super hot Summers, and sub- zero Winters. They take the beating of being filled,emptied, dragged, dropped,slammed into metal to free frozen trash and thrown for many, many years. I am so confident in the can that I made an account on here just to help people in their purchase. I also own Brute myself. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND ! !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan worth the price
In the past I have used other trash cans and they have not held up. I use them to store scrap metals and cans untill I take them to be recycled. I have noticed the brute containers are used daily in recycling facilities, factories, schools, and many commercial uses. I have looked everywhere for a cheaper price and couldn't find a price cheaper. Most brute containers come without a lid. It it sually about $30 for the trash can and $10 for the lid. this price is the best for what you get. I have always been satisfied with Rubbermaid commercial products and I highly reccomend this. it will last a long time and is worth the money. also the lids fit tight and is very good because I don't want animals to get into them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SWong Perfect size for city pickup of trash collection
Had another return trip to my local Home Depot this time to purchase the 32-gallon Rubbermaid Brute trash cans which are the "ideal" size for NYC weekly sanitation trash pickup. Home Depot price is spectacular when you consider the fact it is (03/2015) the cheapest price presently and this includes the usual online web stores. FYI, the NYC Sanitation Department balks and occasionally refuses (or politely forgets) to collect garbage in trash receptacles larger than 44-gallons in size. The Rubbermaid Brute 44-gallon size trash containers depending on weight of trash contained can be refused by the NYC Sanitation Department especially since you can over pack a Brute 44-gallon quite a bit which will be overweight per sanitation regulations. Only other recommendation is prior to putting these 32-gallon Brute containers into service be sure and stencil or paint your house numbers prominently on both lid and sides of containers otherwise they will get stolen. As a homeowner I cannot over-recommend this Brute container enough....they are impervious to UV sunlight making them pliable even in brutally cold winters in NYC. The bottoms will never wear out at the usual failure prone locations exhibiting "holes" typical after years and years of use when the overworked NYC sanitation men drag (versus carry) your full trash cans to the truck. Weakest link in all trash containers are the bottoms similar to when you drag a block of wood over sandpaper. Try and get a contrasting colored lid as I have found they are easily lost especially during snowy days making them hard to see when the sanitation men toss them yards away from proximity of the trash cans.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hamlin Its a garbage can
Very durable not to heavy well made should last years. I'm actually using it to catch rainwater much cheaper that purpose built rainwater barrels. Very easy to add a valve to the bottom.
