The best kitchen trash can option depends on size needed, how many people are in a household, and location of the trash can. Smaller trash cans are needed for smaller areas and less traffic while larger trash cans are needed for high-volume areas.
Trash can sizes needed depend on use and location. Bathrooms and offices require less use than a common area and only need a 5-gallon trash can at most. High-traffic areas such as kitchens and family rooms require at least 10-gallon trash cans if there are a few people living in the household. If the trash can goes under the sink, a smaller or wider version might be needed. If the trash can sits out in a room, a larger version is most useful for families of four and up.
