What’s the correct word for a bin/trash can? Or what’s the difference Spazzatura Bidone della spazzatura Cestino Pattumiera Rifiuti Secchio della spazzatura Cestino dei rifiuti Any other words to consider?
"spazzatura" and "rifiuti" mean trash, and they are synonymous
"bidone della spazzatura", "pattumiera", "secchio della spazzatura", and "cestino dei rifiuti" all mean trash can, and I think they are all used with the same frequency (they might me more or less common depending on the region, but everyone will understand them)
personally, "bidone" makes me think of a really big container, while "secchio" and "cestino" are the bins you have at home. but that's not necessarily true for everyone
the word "cestino" on its own can mean basket (for things other than trash) and trash can, since depending on the context "– dei rifiuti" can be implied
