I don't know about your house, but my family generates a lot of trash - most of it in the kitchen. Sure, we recycle with the best of them-cans, glass, paper. It doesn't matter, the trash keeps coming and coming. We live in the city and we have a decent sized kitchen but it's not huge and we don't have a big cabinet to hide our trash can in.
So it sits out in a strategically located yet accessible location. It has to look good, so it has to be stainless. The only thing you can find at the stores are small, good looking ones that we fill up in about a day and a half.
I show a lot of homes in Columbus and I haven't found a good solution. If only I could take a 45 gallon plastic barrel and put it in the basement and have some kind of trash chute system; I'd be in heaven.
Take a look around though, there are not any good looking kitchen trash cans that are big enough to support a family. It's true and that's my gripe for the day. Tell me what your family does to prevent you from taking the garbage out four times a week!
