We store the trash can in the cabinet under the sink, which is in a corner of the kitchen under two nice large windows. The arrangement of the sink pipes and garbage disposal in the cabinet take up a lot of room; many cans won't fit in the space in front of the pipes. Thinking that a can with a locking lid might do the trick, I went to Bed Bath and Beyond to look at their selection of trash cans. The cheapest one that would fit in the cabinet was close to $50. I didn't want to spend that much, so I came home to do some divergent thinking.

The next morning the trashcan was upright. I think Pepper looked a little sad that he couldn't play his new tipping game, but he quickly got over it. As the week wore on, there were no cleaning up trash reports from Hubby Tony, so on Friday I tried the ultimate experiment. When I baked some chicken I threw the foam tray and absorbent pad in the trash, then left for a few hours.
When I came home nothing had happened. I'm going to call this project a success.
