There are times when I have a nice trashcan with a foot pedal and it works great for a while then BAM! the foot pedal wears out and breaks. Well that happened again. So being on a strict budget lately, I thought it was time for a trip to the hardware store. I purchased a generic handle and some locking nuts to keep the screws in place for about $3.00. Sweet relief, since another 30 liter kitchen stainless steel trashcan is about $70.
It only took 5 minutes, a handle, 2 screws, 2 locking nuts and a drill.
