Trash Cans or Garbage Cans are objects found in the Big-City in Donkey Kong for the Game Boy, and in the game's sequel, Mario vs. Donkey Kong. Mario can stand on them to reach higher areas, but he can also pick them up and throw them at enemies like Rappies to defeat them. Some enemies like the Walking Flames cannot be defeated by Trash Cans, however. Once a Trash Can hits an enemy, it falls through the ground and cannot be used again.

There are also enemies disguised as Trash Cans. They look like ordinary Trash Cans at first glance, but grow feet and a dark figure emerges from inside the container, once Mario gets too close. Then they wander around aimlessly and can kill Mario if they run over him. Mario can safely stand on top of them, but they cannot be lifted like normal Trash Cans. The fake Trash Can first appears in stage 1-3.
