If your trashcan is filling up fast, and you won’t make it to collection day, you could save room by compressing your garbage with a couple of five gallon buckets.
The idea is simple enough; all you’ll need is two large buckets of the same size. Just toss some garbage into one, place the other on top, and sit down or jump on it to compress the trash. I’d definitely only do this outdoors, and even then, probably not with loose food scraps, but this is great for those times where you have a lot of paper or packing supplies to get rid of.
