@Dinosaur918 By nor working, do you mean it doesn't give you any money ?

That's actually more of a general bug..

@crinrict The trash can also doesn't give any money.

But the problem here is the trash can not working on off the grid lots. Sims can't use the trash can or can't put any trash inside it.

The reason why this is a serious glitch is: most of the sims garbage cans DON'T work off the grid. Well, they accept garbage, but the "exterior" trash receptacles aren't bottomless like they are if you're playing a on the grid lot, so eventually they reach capacity and overflow.

 

The logical progression is to buy the nano can, which converts the digital garbage to energy. Since it can't accept anything, our sims have a nasty lot.

 

(Also, I am not in love with the nano can's futuristic aesthetic, it' clashes with my OTG castaway look)

@Dinosaur918Actually, the trash can does work off the grid, the only other problem I and most players have had since 4 patches ago is that dragging garbage or plates of food into it will not give you any additional power or cash from it. You must instruct your Sims to take the trash over to it, whether the trash source is other garbage cans, leftover food, or piles of rubble that conveniently spawn after fixing a broken object.

Also, you have to wait on the trash can's accent lighting to turn green before you put something else in there, otherwise, they'll just run out to the outside receptacle.

@SmoggyLambGG I just rechecked a few seconds ago. The Nano can can't still be used on off the grid lots. Sims just put everyting on the ground.

When on the grid, it can be used and my Sims will get money when trash is put inside it.

Do you need some real convincing? This is off the grid, and I even show you the bills and utilities before and after my Sim puts trash into it.

I see I can put in the trash myself (by clicking and dragging to the trash can). But my Sim is not able to: he picks it up and puts it down again. When I remove off the grid, everything works fine.
