The 32 Gallon Plastic Liner is a sturdy black plastic component which is necessary to complete either our 32 Gallon Trash Receptacle with Diamond Pattern or 32 Gallon Trash Receptacle with Perforated Steel. This plastic liner goes inside of the outer metal casing to prevent any loose trash from being exposed against the metal. This provides a sealed, watertight layer between the trash bags and metal casing. In addition to helping keep the casing clean, it also prevents any liquid waste from leeching through holes in the bag and into the soil. It also makes it much harder to change the bag once it’s full. Rather than trying to list the bulging bag out of the receptacle, and risk it splitting, a person can simply lift the plastic liner out of the receptacle by its convenient handles. This is only the lining for a 32 gallon trash can, and does not contain the metal receptacle or the lid.
