This was a cutting from the landfill. Never mind the fool that threw it away, it has rooted well, scars are healing and babies clumping. What is it?

15 ribs. About 4 feet tall. Cleistocatus? Would like the real botanical name.

Many thanks!

The spines look like Stenocereus thurberi or Pachycereus pringlei?

They do, but are more tan/brown than the Stenocereus species, which I have always seen as grey/black. It's not a P. pringlei, unless juveniles do not exhibit the wavy ribs of the species.
