Critter Proof Cans

Raccoon Trash Can, The "Varmint Vault™" Keeps Small Animals and Critters Out Of Your Garbage.

The BEARicuda Bin™ line of animal proof garbage cans and containers has been widely successful in deterring bears and preventing animals such as raccoons, squirrels, dogs, chipmunks and other critters from entering your trash and making a mess.

BEARicuda, Inc has engineered a new critter and animal proof garbage can called the VarmintVault™ specifically designed for smaller animals such as dogs, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels and other varmints which like to rummage through your trash. Our new Varmint Vault™ also known for being a raccoon proof and squirrel resistant keeps smaller animals and critters out of your garbage.

This raccoon approved garbage and trash can has many great features that not only make your trash safe from animals tipping and knocking it over but allows you, the end user to easily open and close this animal proof garbage can without manually clasping the lid closed!

Varmint Vault

Varmint Vault Features

Our VarmintVault™ is the only animal proof trash can on the market today that offers style and functionality. Opening and closing this animal resistant, proof garbage can is a cinch! It has an automatic latching mechanism that will latch shut as soon as the lid of the can is closed, so there are never any worries about manually clasping the lid down unlike competitive models. There are also no moving parts unlike other animal resistant garbage cans that have metal clasps that flop around and have a tendency to break from constant wear and tear of refuse companies handling your trash every week.

The VarmintVault™ also has a double walled rotationally molded body and Lid unlike any other animal or raccoon proof garbage cans which means more strength and a tougher more resilient plastic outer shell. The lid is also double the thickness of any other animal resistant, proof trash can, just compare our chew resistant corners to that of any competitor can. The corners on the back side of the lid where the handle and lid attach are a meaty 2” thick, unlike any competitor models that are less than ¼” thick.

We understand that garbage cans can take away the beauty from any home as well as a manicured landscape but not with our VarmintVault™! These critter proof garbage cans can stand beside any beautifully landscaped yard and the most gorgeous homes, period! Our animal resistant and raccoon proof trash cans look so good there is no need to even put them in an enclosure or hide them in your garage. The VarmintVault™ is aesthetically appealing unlike almost all other plastic garbage cans on the market today that are a very plain and have a cheap looking plastic appearance. Take note! Just compare our granite like finish on our VarmintVault™ animal proof and squirrel proof, resistant garbage and trash cans, it’s unlike any other finish on the market today. With our simple Twist Knob on the top of the VarmintVault™ opening this raccoon proof, squirrel proof, resistant garbage can is simple unlike other any other competitive models that require either awkward manual thumb latches or have heavy and bulky metal that surrounds the top of the lid.

Note - Many different kinds of animals, including raccoons and squirrels can chew thru plastic. Also, VAR232 DOES NOT have as thick of a lid as VAR264 and VAR296. We strongly recommend VAR264 and VAR296 if you have animals that pull the tops of your lids currently. There is no flex in the lids of VAR264 and VAR296. VAR232 has flexability to the lid which is not ideal for animals that pull lids upward.


If chewing is occurring around the lid area of the garbage can, which is usually the weakest entry point we would recommend our Bearicuda Stealth Models (STL296, STL264 and PAK132) which will work best. The reason being is that these models have a metal band around the lid that will help prevent chewing around the lid and create less leverage for the animals to continue this chewing process. Yet this does not mean a critter may not try and chew in another area of the garbage can, the chances are small but yet can occur. Another option is to try our Bearicuda Fortress, which is recommend for animals http://www.bearicuda.com/enclosures/enclosure-garden-potter.phpthat gnaw (PAK196 and PAK150), this is a screw top lid with a very heavy side wall and lid construction. Again there are no guarantees but 9 out of ten times these two options will prove to be successful. And in most cases many of our customers select our VarmintVault™  model for non bear related issues. Feel free to call us to ask any concerns you may have at 1-877-232-7428

Stealth: the best bearproof can

Disclaimer: Although BEARicuda Bin™ trash cans have been rigorously tested, we cannot make with a 100% guarantee that a bear or any other animal will never penetrate any of our cans. All animals are unpredicatable and many smaller animals (such as squirrels, raccoons, rats are very tenacious with sharp teeth and could penetrate a plastic garbage can if they begin to chew). All our cans have been an effective deterrent against all types of animals in which most never penetrate the can. Cans maybe damaged in certain instances such as chewing or other unusual circumstances of which Bearicuda will not offer a replacement or refund. Example, squirrels, raccoons and other animals with sharp teeth could potentially gnaw into the can where other larger animals cannot access. This is a rare event, but if you are experiencing chewing please call our office and we will help you select the correct product for your needs because no poly can on the market today is completely impenetrable. In 95% of cases you will find the Varmint Vault and Stealth Bins a complete deterrent for bears and all other pesky animals rumaging through your trash.

Note: Some trash or refuge providers may have size restrictions regarding the size of the containers they will service. Please check with your local trash provider before purchasing to ensure you have the correct size requirement.
