Trash can for outdoor kitchen question.

What are you all doing about the outdoor trash? Do you throw it out every night, or have a covered trash can. We cook a lot outside on our covered porch and I have a rubber made covered trash can out there but I just went to empty it after the weekend and had a fly problem in there. (We don't typically have flies here). I empty my inside kitchen trash every night but it's always full. The one outside doesn't fill up so I'm throwing away 1/2 empty trash bags. What do others do. Not wanting a built in.

We have a stainless steel can about 3' high with a lid that opens with a foot lever. It sits out in the elements 365 days a year.

+3 on the Suncast...we've had one for going on 8 years and it's still in great shape, the lid locks, and it's moderately inexpensive too.

My Suncasts are in a windy area so I put a few bricks in the bottom of each.
