Smile Garbage can

Any suggestions on garbage cans, besides the traditional hooks and plastic bags in the cabinet.

Thanks Denise

What do you use at home? If too big get a smaller one.

SimpleHuman makes great ones...they are _very_ expensive but well worth the price--particularly their stainless steel ones. Very nice design features, great build quality, look good, and they effectively keep down the stink!

I bought two small plastic ones from Dollar General for a couple of bucks. One fits in the hole under the sink and the other by the door. They are the perfect size to fit a plastic shopping bag in.

We use two small stainless cans with step on pedals and flip up lids.

Small one in the bath, larger one in main area. A plastic grocery bag fits inside a small retaining rings. Take them out frequently.

We use the small produce/meat department plastic bags to put cooking scraps in. Tie those up tight to minimize odors.

I got a super small countertop trash can for the bathroom. It has a lid and a swinging top.
(We try not to flush anything but liquid)

For the kitchen/main area, I have a unique solution. I have a small plastic cube shaped crate that I got at Target. It fits under our table's bench and it is used for "the bar" during transport (ice bucket, wine and liquor bottles inside clean socks). Then when we set up camp, of course out comes the bar, and then I use the crate for our trash can. It holds standard kitchen sized bag, with a lot of overhang. It fits on the floor under the table, or between the sink and the bed in our 22 Sport. Also easy to use outside when cooking there.

Then when we break camp we take out the trash and pack up the bar again.

I just use a regular garbage bag and set it right outside the door so my toddlers aren't in it. At night or during storms it sits on the counter between the fridge and a window. Works great for us! I would say 85% of the time it's right outside the door so if I have to throw something away I either open the sliding door on the screen door or just open the whole thing, toss item, shut door.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

We use the one that came with the Airstream. Seems to me anything else would be out and in the way.

I went to Lowes and got a 5 gallon bucket with a lid. Both were blue. I rattle canned the bucket silver. I put it outside the door during the day for large or messy items. At bedtime, I snap the lid on and sit it in the shower.

Simplehuman from Container Store. It sits in front of the oven and doesn't even move when towing.
