Garbage Can Tamp 05 20 2010
This tamp allows me to punch down garbage in the bag without getting my hands dirty. This allows for more compact garbage. This means less space in the landfill is used and that I have to change the garbage bag less often. It also means I do not have to get my hands dirty doing this job. This is a must have.
I made this tamp from a defunct plastic broom handle. I cut a piece the appropriate length on the end that had the handle, using a hack saw. Then I drilled a hole through the handle, with a 3/16” or ¼” drill bit for a string so that I could hang it on a screw.
God bless those who think.
