There’s a great market for cars in the United States, as Honda and Toyota have proven – Alan Mulally
If there’s one thing that Americans love almost as much as their families and their dogs, it’s their cars.
Our country was built on the back of the automotive industry, we made the automobile famous the world over, and somewhere along the line, while we were building the cars that put our country on the map, we fell in love with them.
Times change and tastes change and the cars that ultimately ended up stealing our hearts and minds as the twenty-first century slowly rolled into view came, and continue to come from every corner of the globe.
Alan Mulally was right. Even though there was a time when Ford, Dodge, and Chrysler ruled the American car market, they’ve slowly and surely been usurped by Honda and Toyota.
While we used to prize performance and horsepower over everything else, we now value fuel efficiency and reliability, and that’s why more and more of us drive Toyotas. They last forever, they don’t miss a beat and they’ll just keep on going for as long as we want them to.
Because your Toyota Camry is your pride and joy, and the thing that you care most about in the world after your family and your home, you’ll want to make sure that it looks good inside and out.
The best way to make sure that its interior always looks good is with a trash can that can hold all of the candy wrappers and cans and bottles that might otherwise end up on the floor.
And to help make sure that your Camry stays clean on the side, we’ve put together a list of the best trash cans you can fit in your car to keep the interior looking every bit as good as the exterior does. It’s time to put the trash where it belongs, back in the can…

Epauto Waterproof Car Trash Can with Lid and Storage Pockets
Designed to be easy to hang over the bag of the back of the driver or passenger seat or floor-mounted in a footwell, epuato’s two-gallon trash can is fully waterproof and can hold just about all of the trash that a busy family on a long road trip can make.
Its elasticated, easy-to-fasten velcro lid means that when something goes into the trash can, it stays in there until you’re ready to empty it. And because it’s fully waterproof, it won’t leak and leave the sort of stains that only a valet can get rid of when you do need to remove and empty it.
- Easy To Fit, Easy To Empty – It’s easy to fit in the front and the rear of your Camry. Just hang it over the headrests of the seats or from your glove compartment, or fasten it over the central console. And when you need to empty it, just open the easy fasten velcro lid, and tip the trash out.
- Eight Different Colors – It’s available in eight different colors, so you’re bound to be able to find one that matches the interior of your car.
- It’s Big – Don’t kid yourself, two gallons is a lot, and this trash can is going to take up a lot of rear passenger space if it’s hung off the back of the front seats, and a lot of legroom if you fit it in a passenger well
