Why don't you get a compost bin and put the food waste in there? That way you're not filling up landfill with your 'trash'! That's how we do it in the UK, it's important to think about the implications of our actions on the environment and not get sucked in to a disposable world. A compost bin will produce excellent food for your garden, or if you have no garden get a wormery, they don't smell and you can use the juice for houseplants.
If possible, rather than trashing the veggies peelings and cuttings you can put them in your compost pile and keep the good stuff out of the landfill. Or get a worm bin and feed the worms with them.
Great idea! Seems it is one even a well known chef uses on her cooking show....Rachael Ray uses a garbage bowl on her 30 Minute Meals cooking show!
Another Idea is to save an empty plastic gal milk jug and cut out an opening and then you have a nice little garbage container. You can dump out the trash after it's full and rinse the milk jug to use again or just simply toss!
