@Katrus91It doesn't help in my game either, and I do have Eco Lifestyle. Doesn't prevent the issue when at home, and currently having the issue on a rental lot as well - rummaging does nothing.
I've tried resetting (debug) outdoor trash cans, and I have a mod that prevents NAPs from being applied globally (which has been the root of other bugs with the constant baking and herbalism, etc.) - so I'm not sure what else can be done other than constantly deleting the outdoor cans or using the NanoCan.
@greatabandon "I do have EL installed, but I started noticing this bug right after the June 3rd patch, and it simply persisted when EL released."
Exactly! This is key and explains why it's impacting people without the pack, too.

Haven’t reinstalled Eco yet. Trash is piling up without Eco reinstalled. Each time sims take out trash it gets worse. I’m not sure what to do without replacing the trash can every time it becomes like this.

I've had the same problem.
If you have testing cheats enabled, you can shift-click on the bin and Reset or click on "Trashcan State" and "Set Trashcan Empty". That's the fastest way to clear it.

My sims bring their garbage from the trash cans inside into two trash bins outside. Once the bins outside are full, an "uncomfortable" pop up shows up. I assume this means that the trash bins are full because I can also see trash protruding from them at the bottom of the bin, but I cannot click on the trash bins or empty them. Its just annoying and I was wondering if there was a way to empty the trash bins or what other people do if they have this problem.

@tessbeauc I've merged your post into the master bug thread for this issue. Please feel free to click Me Too on the first post, and add any other info you find relevant. You can also keep an eye on this thread for updates.
I haven't been playing for a while but since the patch, it happens to me too. I don't have the new pack so it seems tied to the patch.
