A garbage can is a pre-War object that is still used even after the great war in various stores. (ex: Rivet City) They are basically trash cans and are used as containers to put junk in.

They contain various junk items such as clipboards, bottles, and shot glasses. They often contain around 4-9 caps and coffee mugs. They can even rarely contain Nuka-Colas, carton of cigarettes, and various ammunition (mainly .44 magnum rounds.)


  • They can be found basically anywhere throughout the Wasteland both on the surface and underground.
  • The majority of them are in stores, buildings, and alleys.


  • Getting the Scrounger and Fortune Finder perks can increase the amount of caps and ammunition found in garbage cans.
