Kitchen Scrap Trash Can

Cut the base out of a gallon water bottle and you can line it with small baggies you get from the grocery store (the ones for putting your produce or vegetables in). These bags fit perfectly and the bottle can be used as trashcan for your scraps when you're cutting fruit, scraps that you don't want to be disposed in your sink. This light weight trash can that can easy move around your counter top.

That's a great idea! I often use old bread sacks to dispose of fat trimmings, fruit pairings, scrapings from after dinner dishes, and other yucky stuff that I can't stand to put loose in the trash. I think your idea would combine with mine very nicely using a half gallon bottle and a bread sack.

..or do the same to a half gallon carton and toss out the whole thing when its trash day. My town does not recycle these cartons so may as well extend their usefulness.

Works nicely as a produce scrap collector for composting too !!!! Can be used for several days, just use a twist tie to close the bag until needed next time. When full, empty the bag into your compost bin or pile.


Produce scraps make excellent composted fertilizer for your gardens or even potted plants. Also saves all that scrap food from the landfills. Just DON'T put in meat, fats, or dairy.
