A plastic bucket (1) has a container (2), a cover (3) that can be arranged on the container (2) in a holding position, and a device (4) for loosening the cover (3) from the container (2), out of the holding position, the cover (3) having a radially outer edge (5) and the container (2) having a top edge (6). In order to make it easier to loosen the cover (3) from the container (2), the device has a loosening element (9) which can be gripped at the cover edge (5) and container edge (6), and a guide (10) for the loosening element (9) in which the loosening element (9) can be moved in a working position at least along part of the circumference of the container edge (6) and/or cover edge (5), it being possible to move the cover edge (5) along its path of displacement (11) in the loosening direction (1) from its holding position to a loosening position by means of the loosening element (9).
