Revolutionizing the Trash Bin

Rethinking the Traditional Trash Bin

Many traditional trash bins force the user to remove the bag in an upwards direction, which can be difficult if a lot of trash had accumulated in the bin. Depending on the mass, airflow can be trapped inside the bin, making it even harder to initially lift the bag.


Through my research, I had found that elders typically use smaller trash bins, while most trash carriers are expensive and mostly used by large companies. I took my research further by finding other trash bins on the market.
