Kitchen Trash Cans
We’re starting with the kitchen because, with food prep and disposal, that’s where a lot of your garbage and recycling will wind up. 13-gallon kitchen trash cans (or 50 liters) are a good size to start with. There are a variety of kitchen trash cans to choose from, depending on how your space is set up. Many people prefer the “out of sight, out of mind” method, which makes trash cans for pull-out cabinets a popular choice for many homes. Dual-compartment trash cans are perfect if you want an easy way to sort your garbage and recyclables. Stainless steel trash cans are often preferred because they’re easy to clean. If you want to peruse some innovative options, simplehuman trash cans and bins come in a variety of shapes and designs, including motion-sensor trash cans that open automatically. These touchless trash cans are great if you have your hands full and don’t want to mess with opening the lid every time.
