Secure the lid If waiting to toss old food until trash day isn’t an option for you, properly secure the trash can’s lid. The easiest way to accomplish this is with a short bungee cord. Simply hook the cord onto one side of the trash can’s handle and stretch it over the lid, attaching it to the opposite handle.
