The Trash Can is a storage item which has 40 storage slots. They essentially serve the same purpose as Chests, only having the appearance of a trash can. Trash Cans can only be harvested when empty.

Tips[]

  • The Trash Can requires four times as much Iron/Lead as a regular Chest would. Therefore, unless the Trash Can is used for a different aesthetic effect, Chests or Barrels are more efficient storage units.
    • This may be ironic in the early game, given how useful Iron or Lead can be in early stages.
  • The Trash Can can be used to differentiate relatively "useless" stored items from those of value, hence the name.
  • If one is low on wood, for a chest, and there are no nearby trees, a Trash Can might be a preferable alternative for the time being.

Notes[]

  • Despite it being called "Trash Can", it does not actually delete items like the Trash Slot in your Inventory. As stated before, it works exactly like a chest.
  • The Metal Detector (or connected information accessories) read Trash Cans as a chest for the purposes of sensed objects.

History[]

  • Desktop 1.2: Storage space doubled from 20 to 40. Can also be crafted with Lead Bars now, which were also introduced in the 1.2 patch.
