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[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
  • The Trash Can can be used to differentiate relatively "useless" stored items from those of value, hence the name.
  • This may be ironic in the early game, given how useful Iron or Lead can be in early stages.
  • If one is low on wood, and there are no nearby trees, a Trash Can might be a preferable alternative for the time being.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite it being called "Trash Can", it does not actually delete items like the trash in your inventory. As stated before, it works exactly like a chest.

History[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
