Looking for a very special garbage can
May 21, 2008 10:28 AM   Subscribe

The cupboard beneath my sink would seem to be an oddball, I've never found a garbage can that will fit it perfectly - 20 inches high, 10 inches wide, 15 inches deep. I usually buy taller containers and cut them down. I'd love to find something built to fit. Is there a site you can go to find such a thing, or, even better, where you can input the dimensions of the container you're looking for, and then browse results?

Never used it but The Container Store has a Plan a Space Utility that allows you to put in measurements. Seems geared more towards whole closets and workspaces but I don't see why it couldn't work for a simple cabinet perhaps.

Response by poster: Looks like that ends up being an information capture that sets you up for a phone call with a salesperson.

This one is about right, except it's 11 inches wide instead of 10, will that work?

It would be a simple matter for any commercial kitchen shop to bend you up a can out of stainless (relatively cheap) or copper (beautiful and expensive). The custom route creates a problem though as you won't be able to find bags to fit the non standard can though you probably have the same problem with your cut down unit.

Here are a couple of sites to peruse:

Site 1

Site 2

Not cheap and not easy to search, but might be worth the effort for something you will probably have to buy only once.
