How and When to Use the 🗑️ Wastebasket Emoji

  • If you’re indicating that something or someone is trash in any context, feel free to use 🗑️. For example, “Whatever he said was absolute trash🗑️” or “You’ve got to throw unnecessities into the bin; things, memories, people 🗑️”.
  • You could also metaphorically use the aspect of ‘trash’ accompanied by 🗑️. Like, “If you don’t take the trash out, it would consume space, not only physically, but mentally too 🗑️”.
  • Apart from just a dustbin/trash bin, 🗑️ could also illustrate the basket in basketball – which means this emoji can even signify a ‘goal’ in such cases. For instance, “Enough of trying! You’re good enough! Now dunk that hard work into over that rim of success 🗑️”.
  • 🗑️ can also refer to ‘garbage’; garbage mouth, garbage person, piece of garbage, etc (it’s versatile that way).
  • Use 🗑️ while referring to something that doesn’t serve a purpose too – “If it doesn’t serve you, you know the way to the 🗑️”.
