Make your own trash bag holder

Make your own trash bag holder


Sean Ragan made this trash bag holder using PVC pipe, ENT conduit, and come ball chain clips to hold the bag in place. Beats the SkyMall version any day!

      I suppose trash bag holder is a comfort word for Trash Can!!!

        I wonder if it counts as a “trash can” if it’s not enclosed on the sides and bottom.

    I love this concept. After fighting with my trash can to remove the liner, or not using a liner and fighting with the clean packing material shoved into a can to get it out, I am looking for a frame that allows you to stuff the bag and then remove and tie it and throw it away. What size bags does this take? Can it hold a lot of weight or do the blue rings start to sag with weight. thanks for the reply.
