An unfortunate risk of any outdoor trashcan is that there is always a risk of the receptacle being tipped over by unruly animals or teenagers. This can cause trash to be spilled everywhere, which can be a nightmare to clean up even if the wind doesn’t blow the debris all over the surrounding area. That is why it pays to turn your outdoor trash receptacles into permanent installations. This Trash Receptacle Surface Mount is the perfect piece of hardware for doing just that. It is made for secure installations on the hardest surfaces, including solid concrete. For softer surfaces like dirt or asphalt, an In-ground Surface Mount is recommended instead. This surface mount is bolted directly into the surface in several places, making it an extremely strong base. The top of this mount goes into the bottom of the plastic trash can liner, preventing it from being removed from the outer metal enclosure.
