Like many of Big Agnes best ideas, the Trash Can was born on the trail. With trail litter stuffed in his jacket pockets and camp trash crammed into his pack, Big Agnes founder Bill Gamber dreamt up a simple product that hikers and backpackers could use to remove trash from public lands. Available in various sizes, packing out camp waste and trail litter is simple with the Trash Can, and a portion of sales support the Leave No Trace™ Center for Outdoor Ethics, to help support trail stewardship in the outdoor community. Thank you for helping clean up our public lands!

For light cleaning, sponge the product with warm water (not hot).
For more thorough cleaning you will need:
- Wash basin (or bath tub)-Warm water (not hot) Waterproof Gear Cleaner (we recommend products like Nikwax Tech Wash)
- Submerge your Trash Can in warm, clean water. Gently agitate with hands. Empty dirty water. Repeat until most of the excess dirt/grime is removed and water is mostly clear.
- Apply waterproof gear specific wash and gently work into fabric with sponge.
- Rinse Trash Can thoroughly.
- Hang it up to dry.
- Triple check that your Trash Can is completely dry before storage or use.
- Do not dry clean or machine-wash. Detergents and dry cleaning solvents will damage the fabric and ruin waterproofing.
- Never use hot water, bleach, liquid detergents, or dishwashing liquids.
- Allow to dry COMPLETELY before storage or use.
- Avoid prolonged direct sunlight as UV exposure can compromise waterproofing.
