The touchless trash can is considered a futuristic design of trash cans. It has AS technology, recreating the standard trash can with newly designed enhancements. One of the number advantages of this type of trash can is its germ-free and odor-free environment, allowing for less infections and diseases from trash contaminants. Another advantage is that the touchless trash can outlast the standard hand controlled or step-on trash cans, lasting as long as 10 years, depending on how many times it is opened and closed per day.
This type of trash can has a water-resistant sensor guard so spilled garbage or liquid cannot stain when landing on the sensor or surrounding area. Combined with a dirt resistant lid, that gathers very little dust, and effortless trash bag removal, the touchless trash can design is an excellent choice for care homes, retirement homes, hospitals, clinics or homes for the elderly. Accidental spills cannot occur because of the touchless trash can’s sensor sensitivity, which helps keep the surrounding area clean of contamination. A person’s hands are saved from getting dirty, as could happen if they need to lift the trash can lid with one hand while placing the bag of garbage in with the other. Another bonus is that kids of all ages will find it fun to empty trash now, and be happier to do this job.
There are two modes of the touchless trash can, the touchless mode which opens and closes the lid automatically and the general mode, which allows a button to be pressed for it to open and another to close it. Which mode you choose is a matter of personal preference. Many people appreciate the size and design of these models, which allows them to fit in tight spaces and not to look like an ordinary trash can. The touchless trash can is able to run on battery or AC power, with the AC adapter being an extra purchase.
If preferred, there is the option of purchasing a power supply cord. When using one of these models it is best to turn the power off before replacing the trash bag, and not to force the door open or closed, so as not spill any chemical or chemical based ingredient on the sensor, especially those that are plastic covered. The best place to situate a touchless trash can is in a location where the sensor will not be accidentally triggered to go on and off all the time.
