TRASH BUDDY. KEEP A LID ON IT!

The Trash Buddy is an innovative product specifically designed to secure your standard city outdoor garbage can lid. Trash Buddy creates a raccoon and dog proof trash can that not only keeps trash in, but those smelly odors in as well. Even if wind blows your garbage can over, the Trash Buddy will keep the contents from spilling. Want to open the lid all the way? No problem! Simply take 2 seconds to unhook the bungee cord from the bracket. Trash Buddy only takes about 10 minutes to install, and still empties at pickup time! Trash Buddy is proudly designed & manufactured in the USA with the highest-quality, UV-protective materials!
