The benefits of metal garbage cans include durability, touchless options and attractiveness. Metal trash cans are strong and do not damage easily. They are practical, long-lasting and can be cleaned with window cleaner. They are not recommended for outdoor use because the metal can be dented when bumped or toppled.
Stainless steel trash cans often feature touchless options. They are either equipped with a foot pedal that, when pressed, opens the lid or a battery-operated sensor that does the same. Metal garbage cans are more attractive than plastic cans. The sleek stainless steel is made to match major kitchen appliances such as refrigerators and stoves.
