It's not the most exciting accessory for your kitchen, but it's undoubtedly one of the most necessary. We all need and use a trash can in our kitchen several times daily. But often the purchase of one is an afterthought. But should it be? A kitchen trash receptacle can be functional, odor proof, lidded, or not-lidded. It can have a stylish design, be made of metal or plastic. It serves an essential role in your daily life, so shouldn't you pick out the one that works best?
