Keep Your Trash Bin from Tipping Over

Sick of picking up trash strewn about my driveway after a big windstorm, I decided to take action. At the hardware store, I found a nylon strap, the kind with a buckle. I fastened it to my garage wall with a deck screw and fender washer, looped it around my trash bin’s handle, cut it to length and cinched it up. No more trash-collecting job for me! — Steven Rorabacher
