Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns and it seems that you fear exposure to HIV virus from the garbage can .. I assure you there is no need to worry as infection with HIV virus requires blood or other body fluids contact with a large amount enough to transfer the virus or through unprotected sexual contact. however you should wash your hand and any other area of your body that touched the can with soap and water then sterilize with alcohol and that will be enough. I hope I answered your question. if you don't have any other clarifications then please close the discussion
