New 44-gallon BRUTE® Enables Easier and More Efficient Waste Collection


The new 44-gallon BRUTE®, from Rubbermaid Commercial Products, outperforms the competition by enabling easier and more efficient waste collection. Featuring several patent-pending enhancements, this addition to the BRUTE® family builds on Rubbermaid's tradition of superior performance, innovation, and durability.

"Workers' Comp injuries and lost productivity have a serious negative impact on the bottom line of facility maintenance professionals," said Clay Richey, Product Manager. "To help reduce repetitive stress and strain, we enhanced the design of our 44-gallon BRUTE® by incorporating venting channels. This feature decreases the force required to lift a full can liner by over fifty percent when compared to traditional containers. We also added can liner cinches and more comfortable handles. From top to bottom, the new BRUTE® solves many common user problems."

A key feature of the 44-gallon BRUTE® is the patent-pending venting channels that break the vacuum when a full can liner is removed by allowing airflow down the sides and underneath the can liner. A traditional container can require over 100 lbs of force to remove a filled can liner. The 44-gallon BRUTE® requires over fifty percent less effort because the integrated channels keep the can liner from forming a vacuum in the container.

Productivity is improved via the addition of four patent-pending can liner cinches, making liner retention an easy one-step process, alleviating the need to tie knots. To reduce hand fatigue and provide a more comfortable, secure grip, the newly designed handles have a fully rounded surface and feature ProTouch™ soft grip material.

The new 44-gallon BRUTE®, along with the optional redesigned self-draining lid, works with all existing BRUTE® products and accessories, including BRUTE® dollies, rim caddies, dome tops, lids, and containers.
