Many people use plastic shopping bags or purchased
garbage bags to line household bins. These bins consist of
an airtight bucket which traps the air thus making it
difficult to insert the plastic bags in a tidy, efficient
manner. This is frustrating and reduces the cubic capacity
of the plastic
The RBS (not connected with the Royal Bank of Scotland)
springloads the plastic bucket which sits within another
bucket and has a one-way air-valve fitted. The user
presses down the first bucket which forces air out from
between the 2 buckets. The user then lines the bin bucket
with the plastic bag and when finished, unlatches the bin
bucket to pop back up into place. The resulting suction
creates a form-fitted bin liner.
Bin trauma avoidance
May avert [Max]'s problem [bhumphrys, Dec 03 2015]
||Very lever, like it, but usually the main problem is finding the right bag for the rim of the bin. Change the rim to an approximation to universal fit.
||Could this device alleviate the problem of removing
the full bag from the bin against the piston-like
suction trying to hold it in?
||Press the bin downwards and the full binbag pops out like a champagne cork.

||Had the same problem. Solved problem by drilling a hole in the side of the garbage can.
