I also find it odd that some configuration require you to lift the ban so high to get it out of its holder in the drawer a better option is to put the holder near the bottom of the plastic garbage bin say six to twelve inches from the bottom from the garbage bin. This way you only have to lift the garbage can 12 inches to get it out of the holder.

@jimdrouin: You'll find your better built cans have lids that not only close firmly but can lock. That comes in handy if you have pets with very good noses. :)

@celestina89, you just reminded me of how our dogs would get into the trash when I was in high school. Without getting too graphic, they particularly liked to rob the trash can certain weeks of the month.
