Tipped over trash cans are usually the work of wild animals that are foraging for food at night. Even the tightest lid can be maneuvered open by clever animals like raccoons to get the last bits of food from last night's dinner. If you live in a wooded area prone to trash can break-ins, consider getting a smarter trash can. Rubbermaid's Animal Stopper Trash Can features a bungeelike cord in the lid that allows for easy access for humans, but is nearly impossible to access by wild animals. Even if the can is tipped over, the lid stays on tight and can't be opened by prying paws or teeth, helping to protect wild animals from hurting themselves and preventing trash being strewn all over the neighborhood.
