Since Trash Can Zombie is invulnerable to all attacks when revealed, the player should play this in front of a plant to stall a turn while damaging that plant further, in the middle to prevent Precision Blast (only when against Green Shadow), or any empty lane to hit the plant hero for 2 damage. Additionally, it can take out most weak plants, so using this to guarantee a kill can be useful.
However, Trash Can Zombie is vulnerable to instant-kill tricks like Squash, Lawnmower, and Whack-a-Zombie, and stat-lowering tricks like Weed Whack (which turns Trash Can Zombie into a useless 0/1 wall), but only after the Fight phase if In-Crypted was not used. Briar Rose and Winter Squash's effects will kill Trash Can Zombie as well, so don't rely on Trash Can when trying to defeat them. Grave Buster also poses a threat to Trash Can Zombie.
- It is the only Garbage zombie that isn't in the Sneaky class.
