A homemade "litter locker"

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I just wanted to share an idea about cleaning the box. I discovered that empty coffee containers (the plastic ones, about 10" high and 6" diameter with the snap on lid) work great as mini litter lockers. I line it with a plastic bag and then toss the bag every 2 days (keeping the container). It saves having to toss out 2 or 3 small bags a day whenever I scoop out the boxes.
I thought the statement "aroma seal" on the container lid was appropriate

awesome idea!

haha, i should try it myself. Right now I use the empty bags from their dry food, and just toss the whole bag when its full. But I think we could really use the aroma seal!

sounds great but we don't go through that much coffee - I'll stickk to my real litter locker for now.

I have been transferring litter into the containers with pour spouts and using the big tubs the litter comes in for poop, but your way sounds much easier to handle. I must try it

That's a great idea! I have one of those "aroma seal" coffee containers that's almost empty. I was trying to think of what to do with it. Thanks!

What an excellent idea! Controls odor and cuts down on the number of plastic bags being tossed out. Thank you!

Thanks, I'm thinking of making a few to sell at the fundraising garage sale for the rescue organization I volunteer with. I was thinking of including a cylinder, a litter scoop and a few small bags. Do you think people would buy these? If so, how much? (Now I just need to find all those empty coffee containers )

May I suggest a couple of cubes or slivers of charcoal in the canister - it will absorb even more of the odour...so that when you open the can you wont faint! Even a few coffee beans will work!

What a great idea! Maybe it's gross, but right now I just scoop into the kitchen trash. Can't stand the thought of wasting plastic bags. I will try your idea for sure, even though we don't drink coffee, I'll find one!

Good suggestion--thanks!

paint the outside of the containers a nice color to disguise the name of the coffee company!

I currently use zip lock bags. i buy the cheap ones from the dollar store for this use.
