It´s a BIN for god´s sake!

It´s definitely not a waste basket as it´s, well, got absolutely no basket-like qualities about it.

In the States I suppose it´s be a trash can though.

SO do you call it a receptical bin? I prefer trash can because the name suits it.

it´s just called a bin, or a rubbish bin if you´re really fussy

I agree with Becky, it's a bin!

In the state I rarely hear it called it a waist basket. I call it a trash can because it's an actual can made out of tin.

yupp, a bin...
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 8/22/03 - 1:37:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with becky, estella and nerdy, it's a bin! Guess it's an English thing. :)

It's definitely a TRASH CAN. A waste basket is a small colored bin located in every room of the house.

I call it the garbage can.

Looks like a garbage can to me
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 8/22/03 - 11:21:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd call it a trash can or a garbage can. A waste basket is much smaller and is kept inside the house - usually one per room.

It's a dustbin.
Dustbin.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/23/03 - 5:08:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
that's definitely a bin
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/23/03 - 6:15:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
Trash can! It's phonetically easier to say and it has one less syllable. Better yet, we just say "trash" to refer to ANY container meant for disposal of garbage.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/23/03 - 7:37:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Bin.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/23/03 - 8:28:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
a bin, either a dustbin or a rubbish bin works for me.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/24/03 - 2:02:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's more a trash can than a waste basket, because a waste basket is a basket which is kept indoors to put rubbish in. But personally, and I daresay many other English people are with me on this one, I'd call it a bin or a dustbin.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/24/03 - 8:38:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
its a bin, dustbin..definitely not waste basket!
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/24/03 - 11:47:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
Trashcan,without a doubt.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/24/03 - 12:31:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
A bucket.
