-- This heavy, all steel trash can cover device sits on top of your steel trash can and will keep unwanted pests out of your trash. Designed for the US Forest Service for use in campgrounds and park areas, the Model VDT-32 Trash Can Cover also has applications in any other public park area where people and wildlife mix. Wildlife is a welcome sight in any public park setting. That’s part of the reason people visit our parks. But when that wildlife gets into your trash cans you’ve got a big mess and a big … expensive … problem to clean up. This can be a health hazard for both wildlife and humans.
The Pilot Rock Model VDT-32 Varmint Defiant Trash Can Cover is designed to put a lid on your trash can, and keep the small varmints … like raccoons … from getting inside. The all steel cover is hinged to a 3-1/2 inch diameter steel support post. A human can pull the release lever and then tip the cover back to lock it open. The steel trash can (optional) can then be set into the retainer ring. Use removable trash bags if you desire. Release the lock and set the cover back down onto the top of the steel can. The cover is too heavy for small animals to dislodge. When a park patron wants to deposit some trash, he pulls the front door open. This door plate extends into the throat of the cover. As the door is pulled open the plate closes the throat of the cover. Not even a person can reach into the door and down into the trash can. Put the trash inside the door and let it close. As the door closes the interior plate goes down and the trash drops into the trash can. Simple. Easy. And varmint free. All steel components are powder coated in your choice of colors. (Note:
this product is not rated to be bear proof. Larger bears may be able to crush your metal can. For bear proof trash and recycling receptacles refer to the Pilot Rock Model BPR-36.)
