I put a garbage and recycling cabinet in my new home, but I still have the awesome trash can I used to use. Its tall, stainless steel for easy cleaning, and has a touch step for hands free opening. Nine Stars DZT-50-9 Infrared Touchless Stainless Steel Trash Can, 13.2-Gallon is even better though, it opens automatically when your hand or the garbage reaches within ten inches of the sensor, then closes after nothing is detected for three seconds, and locks in odors. They’re great for the kitchen, laundry room or garage.
For your yard or patio, if you have a trash can in a conspicuous location, the Suncast GHW1732 Resin Wicker Trash Hideaway is a great solution. Its very attractive. Because it will fit large bags, it would work in the kitchen for recyclables in a large family. Some large families use them as general garbage cans too.
For a home office or a location with only paper waste, a Rolodex 22351 Mesh round wastebasket, 11-1/2 diameter x 14-1/4h, black is a nice, modern looking wastebasket.
For the bathroom a covered garbage can is nice. Cook N Home Step Trash Bin Toilet Brush Set, Stainless Steel comes with a matching toilet brush. What I like about this bathroom garbage can is that the inner bucket of the garbage can comes right out for easy removal of trash.
We often find ourselves with a little area, like beside the coffee maker, or at a craft area, where small pieces of garbage accumulate. For me its right beside my sewing machine. The Blomus Stainless-Steel Pushboy Wastebasket is an attractive solution for these little problem areas. Its a mini trash can designed for counter top use, Its perfect for used tissues or sewing or scrapbooking scraps, or for Sweet’N’Low and Keurig packets.
