our garbage can in our kitchen (which is a crappy plastic thing we found on the street) had broken. specifically the foot pedal function to lift the lid without hands. a plastic piece underneath that served as the lever had cracked and broken apart, so i fixed it and reinforced it with zip ties, wire, and a butter knife that i bent into the right shape. hope it holds until i leave this apartment next spring. satisfying to repair things that were never meant to be user-serviceable.
