Infrared trashcans are truly space-age. They open when you hover your hand a few inches above the lid, thus keeping you completely separate from your trash. They’re not overly expensive, and can make taking out the trash really fun for kids. They also work well in doctors’ offices, as needles and their ilk can literally be a matter of life and death. Finally, they are good for the homes of the very neurotic, the type of person who hates to be anywhere near his or her trash. They come with two varieties of lids, the flip top and the sliding top, the latter of which is marginally more expensive.
