Behrens 6 Gallon Rust-Proof Steel Locking Lid Trash Can, Got mine for $16 at my local Agwayjs

Very nice bucket, use it to store pet food.

Item shipped fast and works as described. The lid seals nice and tight and keeps the smell inside.

Excellent choice for my use(storage of squirrel and bird food).

I use them for the cat litter box cleaning. I don’t have to run out to the outside trash every time i want to scoop.

These cans are nice but the dimensions are subject to interpretation. I needed something to fit under my husband’s grill table. The can is about 11 1/2” tall but the lid adds 3 1/2” making a total of about 15” and it won’t fit😢.

I have been researching and testing emp shielding devices for some time now (i have a bs in electrical engineering). This device is the best so far. Do not expect a faraday cage made from a box and lined with aluminum foil and sealed with electrically conductive tape to do nearly as well as this behrens can will; and do wrap important devices appropriately before placing in the can. A box lined with aluminum foil and sealed with electrically conductive tape will seal out fm transmissions (up to 108 mhz), but will pass cell phone frequencies (presently nearing 2 ghz). I’ve personally tested both—see pics attached. Emp bursts cover a frequency spectrum of up to 1 ghz or more (bradley, ’emp attacks and solar storms’, p72). The first picture is of the subject behrens 6 gallon container. The second picture is of a ‘bradley’ constructed box well sealed with electrically conductive tape. Do not depend on that method for your survival. I welcome all comments, especially those which are constructive.

I replaced many hard plastic sturdy storage cans (all sizes) because squirrels (maybe rats) chewed threw the very thick very hard sturdy plastic of the storage containers. I thought it would be impossible for rodents to chew through such robust storage cans, but i was wrong. Now with these behrens metal storage cans, my storage is rodent proof.

Comments from buyers

“I replaced many hard plastic sturdy storage cans (all sizes) because squirrels (maybe rats) chewed , Lid is really tight, Arrived with small dent.”

Absolutely love, we use this for our dogs poop bucket leave it outside and is perfect.

I had hoped this was a little bigger but otherwise they fit the bill.

Very useful for keeping bird seed outside on the patio. Squirrels have tried to open it but without success.

It gets 3 stars because it does hold trash. But the lid doesn’t fit well- to get it all the way on, you have to fiddle with it and then when it’s on, it’s very hard to get off. Also- the 6 gallon trash bags that are recommended with it don’t fit the rim- they’re too small.

Use it for dog waste outside. No risk of odor and creatures getting in.

Great pail, however, way too difficult to use the locking handle.

Keeps squirrels out of bird seed.

Buy these every couple of years for doggie waste, under grill, sand for driveway in winter and hot embers from fireplace.

Tight fitting lid that will keep all manner of critters out and odors in.

We used this to store salt in the winter on the porch. Good quality and lid is very snug.

A rock solid made in the usa canister.

The lid is really tight without even using the locking handle. It takes two hands to pry it off. On the plus side it’s really sturdy and does not leak. Com the invoice was like $5. 00 less than i paid on amazon. Yeah, so be aware you are buying from walmart and paying more than they are charging.

It keeps the varmints out of the birdfeed so far.

My bucket came with a small dent in the rim. I don’t think it will affect it’s use. Since i plan to use it to store ashes from the fire pit and the charcoal grill. Other than that i believe i would buy it again.

We put our dog’s poop baggies in there until garbage day. Seals in odors and keeps critters out.

Will be ok for me but that’s a pain. Bought for outdoor full of ear wigs overnight and it was empty. Can’t put any food or trash in it then. In fairness, i now do not think i had the lid on well. I can’t get the handle to come up over the top, so cannot lock the lid. I haven’t had any more bugs crawling in though. Working well as an outdoor ashtray.

Delivered on time and nice product.
