Okay, I can't believe I'm leaving one of my only Amazon reviews for a trash can, but I just have to share what a great product this is. We have 3 children and a very long driveway. Before this trash can, we had to bring two garbage bins to the curb, quite a long way. But after using this trash can, we have maybe two bags of trash a week. We only have to haul one garbage bin to the curb and back each week, saving us time and energy and I can't help but believe we are somewhat delaying filling up this planet with trash as well. Note, I recommend using Hefty garbage bags to make sure the bag can hold all of the stuff you are cramming in there. I would hate to fill up the can only to have the garbage bag break on the way to the bin. Yes, it is a lot of money for a trash can, but much cheaper than getting a trash compactor!
