Garbage or trash cans do not look very pretty but there are things you can do to hide or conceal them so they are hidden. Hiding the trash cans in the garage may not be the best idea since the smell can attract varmints like rats, raccoon’s and opossums into your building. When you can it is a good idea to keep the trash away from your living space.
Garbage cans are made of plastic or metal. The metal cans are shiny and stick out. You can get some paint and paint the trash cans to make then less conspicuous. The paint job does not need to look like a professional did it. The cans just need to blend in to what ever the surroundings are that the cans sit. If the backdrop of the area is a woods then get tan and green paint and spray the cans in a camouflage design to hide them. If the trash cans are near a cement wall then paint the cans the same color as the cement and your cans will not stick out so much.
Plastic garbage cans usually come in green or tan colors. They are not as easy to paint but you still can if you use a paint that is made for plastic.
You can buy a special movable container that hides garbage cans so they are hidden and not so conspicuous. They are made of wood or plastic and are specially designed to hide garbage cans. Some of these containers have wheels on them and that can be nice since you can roll that cans into an inconspicuous spot. Then roll them out again on the days that the garbage collector comes.
You can make your own handmade trash can barrier. Make it large enough to accommodate all your cans so they are hidden from view. Paint the barrier the color of the surrounding area and the barrier will be hidden along with the trash cans. Build the barrier away from your home but not so far away that it is inconvenient to get to.
If you are a good painter you can paint a lovely image on the cans and then display them as a lawn ornament. That way they can look nice yet be available for being used anytime. It is a convenient way of keeping trash nearby yet they look nice.
With a little ingenuity you can hide your garbage cans.
