The hotel staff, however, came up with a quite interesting thing. This trick is applied in the service sector everywhere. Not only cheap, but also expensive hotels and restaurants have already got used to this small trick.


The secret is in following: make a few small holes in the trash bucket.

To make the holes, first, stick an adhesive tape or duct tape on the surface and drill several holes in it. This is usually done at the bottom of the bucket so that the holes aren’t visible.

You may ask, why do you need this trick? What do the holes do with the bin? The answer is simple: ventilation. The holes let the air in so that getting the bag out of the bucket isn't difficult. Now, you will easily avoid the problems with the scattered trash around the room.
