Another idea is save those stupid little bags they give you at the drug store or convenience shop and use those as your garbage. You’ll fill them up daily and toss them daily. Or you can do what I do: keep smaller bags handy to toss the raw meat scraps, onions, garlic, and other stuff that rots and stinks, then tie those bags up and toss them into your larger garbage.
