Re: Re: A “Grocery Bag” trash can


    Over the years I’ve never been able to use a “swing top” type of garbage can in the kitchen because of ants.

    So I’ve managed kitchen trash by using a very large plastic  icecream container (about 5L) and using the plastic bags from shopping. The container fits nicely under the sink and I’ve never had any trouble with flies or insects.

    The rubbish is easily disposed of by taking out the plastic bag and tieing up the handles, and depositing in the garbage bin outside.

    I’ve been doing this for over 20 years.  Only expense was the icec ream!  Naturally I’ve gone through more than one container in 20 years, but it’s amazing how long they last.
