Solving the Garbage Can Liner Dilemna

Green Tip - Garbage Can Liners
Dilemna - how to avoid using plastic bag liners, but not end up with a dirty, stinky pail? If you are really diligent about bringing cloth bags for shopping - not just at grocery stores but ALL stores - this eliminate the source of reusable plastic bags. On the other hand, NOT lining the pail ends up with food waste stuck on the bottom/ side of the can and the need to wash out the pail each time. A waste of water.
Solution - Use the newsprint advertising which comes every week in the mail to line to garbage pails. Hold it up to the walls, then push a piece into the middle to hold the wall pieces in place. Make the bottom piece a few layers thick, to capture any drips.
Voila - a new use for the paper, and no more plastic!
