When using canned foods and products, if at all possible, cut both ends off the can and smash the can till it's flattened. If you'll also flatten any boxes, you're going to put in the trash can and bag, the more you'll be able to put in the trash can. Trash bags aren't cheap, but they are a necessity, unless you live in the country or rural area and can burn your trash.

Editor's Note: We can recycle both cans and boxes in my area. Make sure to recycle what you can.
