Get the recyclables clean and separated. That leaves the rest (sorry to be
obvious - trying to be clever). Food wastes can be put into the freezer
until the day that the trash goes to the curb. It sure cuts down on smell
as well as the dogs' incentive to dig into the trash.

We have had ours for at least 12 years and really like it. There is
just my wife and I. We normally empty only once a week. Of course a
lot of our waste goes into the large recycling container the city has
furnished us with, so that keeps a lot of it out of the compactor.
When we had our greyhound she figured out how to open it so we had to
keep it locked. She would paw at the front of it until she'd step on
the pedal next to the floor and it would come open. She died a few
years back and our other dogs have never figured it out and don't even

Yeah, but I figure either one of the cats or shepherd dog would make
short work of them. I'd love to have a large aquarium, but then I
remember just how much work they really are if you want to keep them
clean and keep the tropical fish healthy.
