Rubbermaid RM5F8201 Animal Stopper Trash Can : Works like a charm

No more raccoon’s getting into the garbage cans. Found new garbage can half way down. No more raccoon’s getting into the garbage cans. Found new garbage can half way down driveway, but it was still closed. Can not ask for better results.

After 2 months, i got tired of picking up garbage from my lawn every other day and pulled the trigger to buy 3 of these garbage cans. Apparently they befuddled our neighborhood racoon, as i haven’t had anymore problems. Nice looking can, and they seem to be well made.

My roommate got better at it. The raccoons figured out how to open it before my roommate did the first week i had it. However, my roommate got better at it, and the raccoons have not been as successful since then. I expected the plastic to be a bit thicker for what i paid, but it’s holding up ok so far. Definitely not going to last as long as the previous rubbermaid roughneck trash cans i had.

I have a particularly industrious trio of raccoons that have been frequenting my garbage cans and this this the first one yet that they have not been able to get into. I have only had it for a month so can’t speak to the longevity but so far so good.

  • Not exactly as pictured & awkward size liner bags required
  • My roommate got better at it
  • Sorry Mr. Racoon

The best way to keep animals out of garbage cans. The bad news: rubbermaid stopped making them. The good news: i found them on amazon and bought a couple of back ups for myself and my neighbor. My one critique, which i even had written the company about: there are no wheels, the can gets heavy and is no fun to drag for pickup. The bottom gets battered by dragging and eventually wears through.

Not exactly as pictured & awkward size liner bags required. I ordered the olive green can expecting a green trash can the color in the main image, but the can that arrived is a dark grey-green. My only other complaint is that it requires 39 gallon trash bags to work. Your standard black trash bag will not fit as a liner (these are typically 30 gallon bags). Otherwise a good product, well made and delivered quickly. It seals in odors well and doesn’t feel imposing in a smaller space.

    Perfect and oddly enough, the color looks amazing beside our home. We picked up garbage three days in a row from an animal.

    Looked locally for this can and could not find one. Rubbermaid is a great brand. Lid is easy to get on and off if you turn, twist and pull the handle to get the lid off. Would of liked it even more if there was wheels on the can.
