When I throw a big party, I want to provide guests with an unobtrusive place to toss their trash, but the bin shouldn't be so small that it becomes an overflowing pile midway through the festivities. That's why I am intrigued by these large-capacity, reusable "party bins" from Etsy seller HobnobUSA, which look like an easy, attractive way to provide guests with accessible garbage and recycling bins.Each cardboard bin accommodates a 30-gallon trash bag, which is held in place with a cleverly designed collar. The bold screen-printed design on each bin makes its use clear, while adding a bit of attractive graphic flair. And the bins flat for storage, so once the holiday parties are over, they can be tucked into a closet or under a bed until the next big gathering.
