These outdoor trash receptacles will often have some kind of cover that will both keep any waste inside the bin while also making the can easily accessible. Some of these covers may have flap doors in the front while others may simply have a lid with open sides.
Many of the newer designed trash containers have hooks on their upper rims for grocery bag handles as the number of trash bags used in a week is approximately the same number of bags brought home from the grocery stores. Customers find that the 13-gallon bags at stores are cheaper than the odd sized ones and are more apt to be on sale. With the average trash emptied every night, the trash odor does not have time to accumulate in the plastic trash container.
