Rubbermaid Commercial Products Expands Innovative BRUTE Container Product Offering

New vented BRUTE refuse containers combine innovative venting and cinching features with iconic durability

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- Rubbermaid Commercial Products® (RCP), the leader in innovative, solutions-based products for commercial and institutional markets worldwide, announces the launch of vented BRUTE® refuse containers, combining the proven durability of BRUTE containers with new venting and cinching technology and improved ergonomics.

The latest addition to RCP's refuse and recycling portfolio, vented BRUTE containers improve productivity and efficiency with four new venting channels that create airflow.  This air circulation makes removing liners up to 50 percent easier by eliminating the vacuum effect that occurs when lifting liners out of traditional containers. Integrated cinches secure can liners easily so less time is spent tying knots to tighten liners.  Contoured base handles improve grip, reduce strain and improve efficiency when emptying containers, making cleaning easier.

"BRUTE containers have been a hallmark of Rubbermaid Commercial Products for more than 45 years. With every lift, drag and drop, they have outlasted and outperformed thanks to our proprietary design and the highest quality materials," said Kristine Sickels, Vice President of Marketing at Rubbermaid Commercial Products. "With vented BRUTE containers, we are raising the bar even higher, aiming to make the job of cleaning easier and reducing the time and effort needed to manage refuse streams."

The vented BRUTE containers' new technology is designed around four built-in venting channels that create airflow throughout the container. This air circulation eliminates the vacuum effect that occurs when lifting out liners in traditional containers. By reducing the pull force required to lift out liners by up to 50 percent, vented BRUTE containers improve productivity and also reduce the risk of injury.

BRUTE containers also feature commercial-grade construction, guaranteed to never fade, warp, crack or crush. The reinforced base is engineered for dragging across rough surfaces and the rim features an integrated rib structure to increase strength. The vented BRUTE refuse container is also NSF 2 and 21 compliant and is USDA Meat and Poultry Group listed.

Vented BRUTE containers can be purchased through distributors nationwide. For more information about vented BRUTE containers or to find a Rubbermaid distributor or wholesaler, please visit
