Blast resistant trash receptacles are designed to diffuse the force of an explosion by directing a blast upwards, thereby protecting bystanders from the fragmentation that results when an explosive device is detonated in an ordinary trash can.
The Test Results of Blast Resistant Trash Receptacles is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
