Re-Purposed Car Trash Can
So a plastic bag for garbage isn't good enough for your car?

Re-Purposed Car Trash CanHow using about a plastic cereal storage container? Just add a small trash bag, and snap the lid back on!

Even cheaper (assuming you use this product) - a recycled Cascade dish soap container?

Just Mod Podge on a pretty fabric or stick on some contact paper!

What large size plastic container in your house could you recycle into a car garbage container?

Tony Chang posted: I reuse my cat litter buckets too, and not just for used litter. not always the most pleasing colors (Tidy Cats' yellow and red comes to mind) but I suppose you could paint as well as paper?

Jennifer Heatherly posted: I use the cat liter buckets. One has become the trash can in the laundry room, one is a car wash bucket, etc.

Deedee Warner posted: I store cat food (after washing the container, of course) in an empty litter bucket.
