Rubbermaid outdoor trash cans range in capacity from 20 gallons to 50 gallons and are made of heavy-duty plastic designed to withstand moisture and extreme hot and cold temperatures. All models come with lids, some of which are attached to the trash can. Many also have wheels and handles.
Rubbermaid offers round, rectangular and square outdoor trash cans. These containers come in a range of neutral colors that include black, dark green and tan. As of 2015, the company sells at least one outdoor trash can model equipped with a locking lid that is intended to prevent animals from getting into it.
