It seems like the bin is never empty sometimes and every time you go to put in some trash in it’s overflowing. This is a problem that might stem from the way you store your trash and obviously also the amount that is being thrown out. Thankfully like most other things in the kitchen with a bit of organization your trash can be easily managed. Organizing and sorting out trash can overflows in the kitchen is really a necessity. Organizing is beneficial to not only the appearance of your kitchen but to the cleanliness and overall hygiene. If you have small children you do not want dirty waste being easily accessible (i.e. overflowing from a bin). Young children are notorious for putting anything they find in their mouth and so you want to make sure if they do get hold of something in the kitchen it is clean and safe.
So what can you do to keep your kitchen trash in order? The first thing we would recommend is assess if your current bin is sufficient to hold the amount of waste your household produces. It may be surprising but you can usually replace your current bin with something that’s not too much bigger but is better laid out or uses your space much better. If you currently have a stand alone bin, why not consider getting one that is attachable to the inside of a cupboard? These hidden in-cupboard bins are discreet and can be placed in the cavity below your kitchen sink. This means the trash and odor are concealed and not in contact with any of your other fresh or dried foods. There are a couple of attachment options for these bin types. The first is to have it attached to the inside of the cupboard door so it swings out with the action of opening the door. The second is to have it on runners like what you find in many in-cupboard pantries. Each option works as well as the other, however if there is a spillage the door attachment fixing is usually easier to clean than the wire rack on runners option.
