"Caddy" Makes Trash Hauling Easier
When their county started requiring weekly trash pickup at the end of the driveway, the Hickenbottom family in Prunedale, Calif., had a problem because they live on a hill with a long driveway. At first, they loaded their two large garbage canisters onto a truck, hauling them to the end of the driveway. Unfortunately, the containers often spilled on the way.
  "It was a nightmare to get our trash out to the county road," says Dorothy Hickenbottom of Prunedale, Calif., whose husband, Joe, created the Trash Caddy to solve the problem.
   It's a 28-in. wide steel bar with two hooks that attaches to a receiver hitch. "You tilt the trash container down and hook the handles onto the Trash Caddy's prongs," she says noting that it can pull two big 64-gal. containers at once. They roll behind the truck on the trip to the end of the driveway each week.
  Hickenbottom says they couldn't find anything else like it on the market.
  The Trash Caddy sells for $39.95 plus S&H.
