Common Questions About Trash Can Parts
How can I keep my trash cans from blowing away?
Trash can anchor kits secure your cans to the ground, preventing them from blowing away in a storm or being stolen overnight. KaTom offers a few different options for trash can anchors, but they all work the same way—a bolt is driven through the bottom of the trashcan, through a stabilizing plate, and into the ground beneath. The plate disperses force and prevents the bolt from ripping through the bottom of the can, and the bolt keeps the can exactly where you want it.
KaTom also sells weighted trash can bases to keep the garbage can stable and settled while in use. Wobbly trash cans lead to excess mess, but with a weighted base, the can stays put while in use and becomes difficult for anyone to surreptitiously remove. The drawback to weighted bases is they must be used with their companion can since they are made to fit snugly with a specific style of trash can. These are a great accessory if you're adding new trash cans, but you'll have to find the specific matching model if you want to upgrade your existing cans.
How can I keep my flatware from being thrown away?
Accidentally tossing flatware in the trash can be a costly problem for restaurants. Foodservice is a fast industry, and operators are usually in a hurry trying to keep up. When a fork is beneath a dirty napkin on a plate covered with uneaten food, there's a good chance that fork is going into the trash with everything else. Luckily, we have trash can accessories to keep that fork from sinking beneath the food to the bottom of the bag. Flatware savers are magnets that attach to the top of a trash receptacle and catch magnetic flatware while letting the organic matter pass down to the bottom. Most flatware retrievers fit on top of your pre-existing trash can, so make sure you get the right size. Typically, you will only need flatware savers on the trash cans into which you'll be emptying dirty plates.
What is a trash can caddy bag?
A caddy bag is a trash can part that wraps around the trash can and provides a place to store cleaning supplies. Typically, caddy bags are used for cleaning an establishment outside of business hours. Instead of using a cart to carry around all the supplies needed to clean windows, tables, or floors, a trash can caddy bag enables the cleaner to work while only needing to move the trash can around. The caddy bag doubles the utility of the trash can, helping users dispose of refuse and clean up with just one piece of equipment.
What trash can decorations are available?
Trash cans are a necessity, but aren't the most aesthetically appealing piece of your establishment's décor. Several trash can parts are intended to improve the look of your trash cans and keep them in line with the rest of your style. Trash container panels provide an attractive housing for your trash cans, hiding the utilitarian look of most receptacles. We carry several styles so you can find one that best matches your desired look.
