Easy Lift Trash Can


Easy Lift Trash Can

After struggling to lift heavy trash bags out of the trash can and cleaning up spilled trash, Anthony designed a trash removal system to alleviate the problem. His invention consists of a large trash can with a hinged and locking door cut in the side to prevent the door from opening until ready to use for trash removal. Two attachments are included - one to hold extra bags and the other for twist ties. When ready to empty the trash, open the locks, slide the trash bag out of the can using a twist tie to close the bag and set it aside. Close and lock the trash can door and put in a new trash bag in the can. Take trash to designated area. No heavy lifting or spills!
