Picture of Easy Cheap Trash Can Out of Old Water Jug

ok, after parents divorsing and mom moving out me and my brother went to reclaim the basement as a video game/exersise room. and we relised the trashcan down there my mom took to her apartment. as the redneck i am i figured id save money and rig one. basicaly take a water jug from a water cooler. cut of the top, sand down top, and put in a bag. easy but i thought it was a good idea and it looks cool down there

its very simple the only advise id really give you is dont use clear nags cuz you wont want to look at your garbage and also a tablesaw will cut the top of in like 5 seconds

It makes for a nice trash can, but around here there is a $10 deposit on those bottles as they are refilable.

i guess this only works if the bottle is already broken then.
