We have a very small courtyard, and I don't want the space all taken up by big garbage bins. I am looking at different options of small garbage bins that can fit in small courtyards and are effective about keeping the odour contained. There are some really cool designs on the market which make the most of a narrow gap, including tall and thin bins and short and wide bins. There is something for anyone. This site has some links and articles about the cool types of garbage bins you can buy, and some reviews of different types and brands.
