This might not be the most glamorous topic ever, but it's entertaining month at Apartment Therapy, and parties create waste (even if you're throwing a green shindig with reusable dishware). Our favorite party-ready trash can is the classic metal bin...

1 Knodd 11-Gallon Bin with Lid from IKEA, $25
2 Behrens 20-Gallon Galvanized Steel Garbage Can, $22
3 Classic 12-Gallon Bin from the Conran Shop, $59
4 Dover Parkersburg 20-Gallon Trash Can, $16
5 Orvis Food Storage (30-40 lbs) Stainless Steel Bin with Sealed Lid, $98

Look! A Trash Can with a Catch!
