The new Rubber Hat Garbage Can is simply-structured and easy to use, designed to solve the problem of garbage bag linings frequently slipping off the top of conventional garbage bins.

Existing rubbish bins have failed to strike a perfect union with garbage bags – either the bags cannot be firmly fixed, or it is troublesome to fix them all the time. To address these issues, Rubber Hat Garbage Can was created as a redesigned rubbish bin. The new design ensures that slippery rubbish bags can be securely fixed to the rubbish bin even with an increasing rubbish load in the bag.
To use, one simply lines the trash bin with a trash bag and fold over the rubber ring such that it overlaps the edge of the trash bag. A few rubber convex points around the bin will increase the friction between the fold-over and the sides of the bin, and in this way, holds the slippery trash bag securely in place. The semi-transparent trash can and the colourful rubber ring also makes a good-looking and easy-to-use trash bin.
