Garbage cans and garbage bins are containers used for the disposal of garbage. While they can hold less household refuse than trash compactors, they don't wear down or break. Garbage cans can be found in buy mode under "Appliances -> Large Appliances" or in "Miscellaneous" depending on the game, and in the Kitchen section sorted by room.

The SimsEdit

Each residential lot contains an outdoor trash receptacle that can be used for the disposal of trash; this trash can is located outside of the lot's boundaries, and cannot be moved without the use of the moveobjects cheat. Players can also purchase smaller trash containers for use indoors that allow Sims to temporarily dispose of garbage in them. These trash cans will eventually need to be emptied into the outdoor trash can.

This section is in need of additional information. You can help The Sims Wiki by expanding this section.

The Sims 2Edit

Residential outdoor trash can

Residential outdoor trash can.

Garbage cans function similarly to those in The Sims. Sims may autonomously empty a garbage can even if it is not yet full. Sims with less than two neat points can "Salvage" from the outdoor trash can, which yields the scavenging Sim a few Simoleons if they find something. This will come at a slight cost to hygiene. Passersby may also kick the outdoor trash can over if they are enemies or furious with one of the members of the household, or if they have very few nice points. Children and teens with a low aspiration score may also autonomously kick the outdoor trash can, and messy pets may knock it over. A trash can that has been knocked over will produce a pile of trash, and must be picked up by a teen or older Sim before it can be used for garbage disposal again.

The trash chute appears in the communal areas of most premade apartment lots. It does not need to be emptied, and can be placed inside apartments or even on regular residential lots. As such, the trash chute can technically replace all other garbage cans and trash compactors, including the outdoor trash can. Unlike fireplaces, the trash chute does not occupy any space behind the wall it is placed on. Sims will typically use the trash chute if it is closer than the outdoor trash can.

The Sims 3Edit

Trash cans can be moved around in The Sims 3 without the use of the moveobjects cheat. Like in The Sims 2, Sims can be directed to rummage through trash cans, and may also do so autonomously even if they lack the slob trait. Sims working in the law enforcement career can search through garbage cans to build their job performance. Unlike previous games, the player can simply drag and drop disposable items, such as newspapers and plates, onto the garbage can to dispose of them.

If Ambitions is installed, Sims working in the investigator profession may be tasked with searching through another Sim's trash can to gather evidence. The Sim will stop searching if they are spotted by any of the household members, although there does not appear to be any additional consequences to this.

The Sims 4Edit

Trash cans in the Sims 4 consist of the smaller Wastebaskets, intended for indoors and temporary trash storage, and the bigger Garbage Cans, intended to be placed outdoors. A Garbage Can is required to empty a wastebasket. Wastebaskets take up a 0.5x0.5 square whereas garbage cans take up a 1x1 square and require extra space to access them.

Sims who are Angry or Tense, as well as those with the Erratic trait can kick trash cans, leaving behind a pile of trash next to the bin. This, however, is only possible with the Wheeled Trash Bin, the Adurable Plastic Trash Bin and the Trashe Cann.

Sims with the glutton trait can rummage through trash cans for food.
