Can Flex / rubbish can

Can Flex
Can Flex

The size of rubbish bags is always different from our rubbish can, and the cans tend to fill up much faster than the bags, wasting a lot of space in the rubbish bag.

This can is mold from a single piece of thin aluminum into a tubular form, slip the rubbish bag around the edge, and the bulk of the can would grow as the amount of rubbish grows until the bag is full, this way no space would be wasted.

The form would return to its normal size after the bag is taken out because of the flexibility of aluminum.
