Store Food Waste in Freezer Until Garbage Day
To omit odors from our garbage can inside the house, if we have anything that may start to smell after a day or so (examples: the styrofoam that meat comes on, banana peels, etc.), I simply put it in a plastic grocery bag and put that in my freezer. I add to that bag all week long if I have items that may start to smell before garbage day. I also scrape our dinner plates into this bag after meals.

I do that too! To remind me each garbage day I put a clothespin on my garbage bag under my sink and one on the bag in freezer.
Great idea! (if you don't have a compost pile, that is, LOL.)
I didn't know other people did what I do!! I thought I was the only eccentric one doing this ;-)
I eat salmon frequently and put the wrappings in the freezer until garbage day. Sometimes I microwave the wrappings to make it safer too.
