Editor's Notes

December 03, 2018:

Not all areas that need a recessed panel trashcan look the same or collect similar trash. That's why we chose models that are good for every type of property or room that's prone to messes. The Safco Aggregate and 9935BL, for example, have unique designs, proving trash bins don't need to be eyesores. Most of our selections can be used indoors or outdoors, so users don't need to worry about exposing them to the elements.

His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
