Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, is submitting this client’s idea, Easy Empty Trash Can, in the hopes of a good faith review.

"Due to a dislocated finger, I was unable to lift full bags from the trash can without struggle and pain," said an inventor from Minneapolis, MInn. "This inspired me to develop a more ergonomic way to empty trash cans."

EASY EMPTY TRASH CAN enables a user to empty a trash can in an easier manner, especially by eliminating suction. It reduces strain, struggle and the chance of pain and injury. Overall, it saves time and effort. Ergonomic, easy to use and serving as an alternative to conventional trash cans, the invention is suitable for all households and businesses (older people as well as kids).

The invention also makes it easier for older people to empty the trash. For instance, it makes emptying the trash less of a burden for older individuals who live at home alone. In addition, the design is also easy to use by children, and it could help to make their chores easier.

The original design was submitted to the Minneapolis office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
