Do you have to capitalize dumpster?

The Associated Press style book agrees that “garbage can” should be capitalized, but recommends using a generic term such as “bin” or “dumpster.” The Dempster brothers first patented the dumpster in 1935 in Knoxville, Tennessee. The original dumpster was designed to be used by mechanical arms, but that process wasn't perfected until the 1950s. In essence, the Dempster brothers patented the first garbage truck called the Dempster Dumpmaster. Do you have to capitalize the word garbage can?.
