Pros:Classic black. Locking handles. Wheels.

Cons:Size is limiting.

The Bottom Line:

Here's an adequate "can" for those who don't need more capactiy.


It used to be the number one can, the one that sat on the deck, the one that was carted out to the curb twice a week. After years of loyal service it fell into disfavor with the man in charge of the household garbage. He wanted something bigger and sexier, something that would impress the neighbors and intimidate those garbage truck guys who woke him in the morning with their loud yelling. For a few months it shared number one status with a cousin that has a hinged lid, but was a little tipsy and unbalanced. Now both Rubbermaids are simply backups, longing for a time when they’ll be needed and their insides stuffed with bulging kitchen trash bags.


Rubbermaid 32 gallon wheeled can
It’s a classic black can, handsome, sleek and elegant on the curb or on the backyard deck. On the Rubbermaid web page it’s called model 1339, an impersonal but necessary designation for a site with so many products.

Stats for the black Bruiser: (Measurements taken by a Potato Head at twilight)
18.8” diameter opening
32” high
Two wheels on the bottom for rolling
No wheels on top
Form fitting lid fits snugly
Two handles fold up to lock on lid
Durable construction withstands intense sunlight and freezing temperatures
Lifetime warranty
Also available in Cylinder, Evergreen, and Kona

Performance

The can has survived at least six years (can’t remember when I bought it) of hot Maryland summers as well as winter’s freezing temperatures. It’s been handled roughly by garbage collectors and rudely tossed by them many feet into the air. Several times it’s been sideswiped by cars but suffered no deforming injuries. The only damage it has sustained is a single crack in its lid’s lip, an injury that sometimes makes replacing the lid a tedious chore of manipulation and maneuvering. Sometimes the lid goes right on and sometimes it requires lots of repositioning.

Model 1339 easily holds two filled kitchen garbage bags, the tall kind. That third bag is iffy, depending on what shape the bag has taken. Fitting a large yard bag filled to capacity into this can is also a challenge. Many a time I just put in the bag and left off the lid by necessity.
It rolls adequately on its two smallish wheels, though not exceptionally.


For the past year or so raccoons have been a problem here at Spud Acres. They figured out how to get into this can despite the locking handles. Once they knocked over the can, getting in was easy. Eventually I began stretching a bungee cord from handle to handle to discourage the raccoons. It worked.
The narrow can, when empty, was easily toppled by a strong wind. Full cans mostly stayed stationary. During some periods of strong wind I simply put a couple bricks in the bottom of the can to keep it upright.

What finally cost #1339 its number one position in our can hierarchy was its lack of capacity. The new can is slightly lower to the ground, stockier and bigger in volume. It holds three bags easily and sometimes four.

If for some unforeseen reason, the new number one can is ever unable to perform, #1339 is waiting in the wings for a second chance.

This can may be a good choice for a small household, but may not be large enough to serve as the single garbage can for many.
