The Sims 4: Eco LifestyleEdit

A Very Fine Dumpster
A Very Fine Dumpster
You know, Dumpsters get a bad rep, don't they? Sure, they're vile and smelly. And yeah, maybe they're covered in a revolting mystery crust that makes you want to forget today ever happened.

But did you ever think that maybe, just maybe, somewhere deep within the depths of that repulsive and misunderstood receptacle awaits the new crowning jewel of your mother's sitting room? Or maybe quietly nestled below the dank funk of this repugnant vessel is the rare ingredient to your new favorite dish?

I guess what I'm trying to say here is, maybe it's time we give trash a chance. This here is A Very Fine Dumpster.

In The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle, the dumpster can, mainly, be used to dispose of trash. Like all other outdoor garbage cans, dumpsters are considered to be "bottomless", meaning they will never need emptying. If the Reduce and Recycle lot trait is used, however, they will stop being "bottomless" and will have to be emptied by a garbage collector every week.

In addition to using it as a garbage can, Sims can dumpster dive for a variety of reasons, including for "deals" (furniture and decorations), for meals, and for "thrills" (WooHoo). They also have the option to nap in dumpsters. Climbing into a dumpster will deplete Sims' hygiene needs, and will make them feel uncomfortable.
