In the pic above, the brown garbage can closed off the hallway connecting the kitchen to our front entrance. Plus, I hated seeing the garbage bag sticking out the top. We needed a new solution!
I emptied the cupboard in between the dishwasher and the fridge in preparation of installing the new garbage can. My husband did the install, but it was super easy, with just a few screws.
I found this pull out garbage can at Bed, Bath & Beyond made by SimpleHuman. It has a huge bucket that fits more than my previous one because it is square. The bags I bought from Costco for my old garbage can fit this one nicely! Which is great because I still had a full box of bags to use up.
I also like the fact that the garbage is now right near the sink and dishwasher. I can now easily scrape off plates in the garbage and they go straight in the dishwasher. No need to take a few steps across the kitchen anymore.
What I love the most is the garbage is hidden. I don't have to look at it any longer!!! What are your garbage solutions?
