The Dumpster is usually featured behind the Krusty Krab.
The Dumpster is normally light gray, yellowish-brown, with brown rust markings and green goo stains, and filled with garbage bags. It is normally located behind the Krusty Krab. In "Sailor Mouth," the dumpster was featured with graffiti on it. The dumpster's largest appearance would probably be in "Missing Identity" when SpongeBob and Patrick were looking for SpongeBob's name tag. It has a minor appearance in The Splinter, where Patrick Star uses garbage from the Dumpster to treat SpongeBob's splinter.
In this episode, SpongeBob took out the trash in fear of the dark, giving Squidward the idea to tell him about the "Hash-Slinging Slasher". This was the first appearance of the Dumpster in the show, but its placement was different. This is because the Dumpster was put in front so the Dump Truck could be able to reach it. This is the only episode to have the dumpster to not be in the back of the Krusty Krab.
In this episode, SpongeBob goes out with the trash, to throw it in the dumpster. He then looks at the dumpster writing, looking at the words, then he finds the following words: "Krabs is a (dolphin chirp)".
In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick go search for SpongeBob's name tag, Patrick attempts to help SpongeBob dig up the garbage to find his name tag, before Patrick eventually notices SpongeBob was wearing his shirt on backwards.
In this episode, Patrick attempts to treat SpongeBob's Splinter, so when things don't work, Patrick puts garbage on SpongeBob's splintered thumb, which seems to make it worse. Patrick then walks away, leaving SpongeBob alone.
