Trash cans aren’t just for the home and the business. They’re also indispensable when you’re on the road. An excellent example of this is the Stansport collapsible trash can. Made of rust-resistant polyethylene, it is the perfect combination of heavy-duty and lightweight. It’s heavy enough to hold 50lbs, but light enough to easily collapse into its handy carry bag.
While it’s listed as a camping supply, it can be used in a variety of situations where portable trash cans are required, which happens more often than you might think. Long car trips are one instance: there is nothing worse than finishing a 12-hour journey, arriving home exhausted, then seeing the food packets, drink cans, fast food wrappers, and other such things that you accumulated. Imagine how satisfying it would be to simply grab your Stansport, empty it out, and collapse on the couch with a well-deserved cold one.
There is also, oddly enough, a large selection of collapsible trash cans featuring various sports teams. This is great, though, because it means you can support your favorite team while keeping your wife happy during your barbecue or Superbowl party by keeping the mess contained and to a minimum.
Collapsible trash cans are also great if your business takes you on the road but isn’t heavy-duty enough to merit a dumpster. Interior painting and the like are places where a collapsible trashcan will prove invaluable.
Bell Automotive also makes a collapsible trash can. This model is almost identical to the Stansport version except that it comes with Velcro clips to attach it to carpet. This makes it perfect for those days that your living room is packed with trash – like the conclusion of Christmas morning.
The best thing about all these trash cans is their affordability. Even if you only use them on the occasional camping trip or picnic, they only cost $ 9 (for the Bell Automotive) to $ 17 (for the Stansport). At prices like these, you really may as well. Even if they sit in your closet for most of the time, the times that they do emerge will more than justify the marginal expense. So buy a collapsible trash can. And enjoy.
