These were the type of garbage cans we had when I was growing up, and I have always felt they were superior to the plastic ones people use today. This can is a 20 gallon, and made of heavy duty galvanized steel. It will last for many years. Dimentions are:
17.5 inch x 17.5 inch x 23.5 inch
This is the perfect can for burning your paper. Holes in the side let in lots of air to keep the fire going.
Also perfect for starting your own compost. holes let in the air and let out the moisture.
20 gallon capacity, dimensions are:
17"L x 17"W x 25"H
