This is a tough little garbage can. I bought it for doggy poop bags. Before I had this can I would put them into my large curbside bin. I found out pretty quickly that dropping full bags of garbage on top of doggie poop bags does not work out well. So I wanted something specifically for dog poop bags. I did not want a big can because then it would start to smell long before it was full enough to empty. This fit the bill perfectly. Tall kitchen bags fit perfectly. The lid snaps on tightly and keeps out the rain.
