Is there a conceptual difference between a trash can and a recycle bin in English (such as the recycle bin being for things that shall or can be recycled while a trash can is only for pure garbage)?
"Trash can" is a mainly North American term for a receptacle or container for waste. 'Rubbish bin' is a mainly British term for these things. Otherwise you have it right.
