The Sims 4: NanoCan Touchless Trash Can

The NanoCan Touchless Trash Can in The Sims 4, is an item that you can easily make money with and it doesn’t require any extra effort on your sim’s parts. Imagine a garbage can in your home that makes you actual money to spend every time you throw something away! Well, it can be possible for your sims.

What is the NanoCan Touchless Trash Can?

The description of the NanoCan Touchless Trash Can says “The next generation of trash disposal, this hands-free bin replete with smart tech and odor filters converts organize waste into fuel, rendering the entire unit self-sufficient.

When you purchase the NanoCan Touchless Trash Can, your sims will now throw away their garbage in this trash can and every time they do so you will be given money. I have recently discovered that you actually make more money per person in your household.

If you have a one sim household, you’ll earn §10 every time someone uses the trash can. However, if you have 8 sims living in your household, you’ll earn §80 every time someone throws something away.

You earn §10 for each member of your household, so this is a really awesome option for large families and I found it vital during my 100 baby challenge.

You can even drag dishes into the trash can that your sims leave around the house so that they don’t have the opportunity to clean them and literally throw money down the drain.

The only real downfall of the NanoCan Touchless Trash Can is that it costs §1,200 which is hard to make happen in a lot of starter families, however, it can and will make you your money back in just a matter of days.

Final Thoughts

The NanoCan Touchless Trash Can may be expensive, but it really can make its money back so quickly and really do some good for your family so you can constantly be earning a little bit of money. Are you a fan of the NanoCan Touchless Trash Can in The Sims 4? Do you buy it? Or just get a regular trash can?

    1. Mine either… I think they broke it or fixed it… idk which yet! 🙁 Hopefully it goes back to normal soon

    2. It happened to me as well and what I figured out was you have to have your sim throw trash away to earn the money. You can’t drag and drop. It’s also only §10 an item now.

      Hope that helps till it’s addressed further

    3. It only gives you money if the sims themselves would throw it away, if you throw away items yourself then it won’t pay you

  1. When i drag stuff to the bin. I get paid $20 with 2 people in my household per item. My sims won’t use the bin. They just place the plates back on the counter
