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 mostly contain various junk items such as clipboards, bottles, and shot glasses. They often contain around 4-9 caps, and can even rarely contain Nuka-Colas, cartons of cigarettes, and sometimes various ammunition types.


  • 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.
  • Garbage cans may respawn random items every 72 hours, and for this reason they are not safe for player to use as storage.
