What is the volume of bins to choose

In this article we will talk about choosing the right garbage can, or rather, what volume should I choose?

It would seem that it is a trifle. What is the difference, what is the garbage can? But you will agree that I hate when in the bin is not placed all the garbage. Or when it is very large, it occupies a lot of space, but never filled with garbage 100%. The correct choice must take into account the number of household members, lifestyle, how much space for placement of the bucket you have. Now I understand that not all so simple?

To date, manufacturers of bins present in your Arsenal of volumes from 3 to 50 l for a wide range of users. If your family is 2 people you will bucket 12-16 L. If 4 people, you should better take a bucket with capacity from 25 to 32 years, it will be even with a small margin. If you take less, You simply have two times a day to take out the garbage. If you make a choice in favor buckets more than 32 years, You're lazy to take out the garbage until the container is filled, leading to its accumulation and unpleasant odor. If Your family more than 5-7 people notice the bucket from 32-40 L.

Select bucket, round shape – they are the most comfortable. For installation in the kitchen bucket should be on the cover, to the smell of waste was not in the room. For apartment you can choose several options:

  • Built-in type is a special kitchen buckets, which are mounted on the door furniture. Buckets come with a lid, it is secured by a cord to the wall furniture. Due to which when you open the door of the cupboard, the bucket opens automatically and it is very convenient. Made of stainless steel AISI 430. Suitable for those who are planning the installation of a locker. Produced in a volume of 12 L.
  • With the pedal – the most idle model, the cover opens either manually or by pressing on the pedal. This allows contactless to dispose the wastes. Also made of stainless steel AISI 430. Inside have a plastic bucket to collect debris. This allows to use the model as a garbage bag, and without. It is possible to collect garbage in the inner plastic container, after you take it out and discard waste and clean away dirt with water. Buckets release volume: 3, 5, 8, 12, 16, 20, 30, 40L. Fit for maximum range of users. The only thing to consider is the size of the bucket, to fit.
  • With swivel lid – non-contact model, made of stainless steel AISI 430. Cover it swivels 360 degrees. To return it to its original position on the inner side of a magnet. They are slightly smaller than those with the pedal, because the cover does not need additional space. They are produced in volume: 5, 8, 12, 16, 20, 27, 32, 45 L.
