The most notorious garbage can critter: the raccoon.  These trash pandas have been breaking into trash bins for decades – leaving behind a mess for YOU to clean up in the morning.  So, if you’re searching for a solution to this problem, you’ve come to the right place.  Meet the Strong Strap™ and our 4 Strong Steps to raccoon-proof garbage cans.

Four Strong Steps

Operation: Nocturnal Trash Eater Defense


Invest in a Quality Trash Can

Strong plans start with strong cans. Look into a high-quality trash bin if you don't already own one. We recommend a trash can with a sturdy base and a lid that is hard to bend.

Prevent Can from Falling Over

When trash cans fall over, pests gain leverage. For raccoons, we recommend storing your can on level ground and in-between other cans, up against a wall, or in a corner. Find a spot where the can is not likely to fall over

Add a Strong Strap

It's simple... crank the lid shut and prevent access by raccoons. The Strong Strap is made for every woman, every man, and every can - universal, no tools required to install, and engineered for extreme-durability.

Keep Can Clean

Raccoons love the scent of food waste, make your cans less tempting by keeping them clean. Plus, as an added layer of protection, we recommend mint scented trash bags to complement the Strong Strap.
