"Do yourself a favor and toss whatever trash system you have now and get the Ubbi pail ($56, originally $80). Yes, it's pricier than most pails, but you already know what most pails get you: funk. The Ubbi is made of steel, which traps moisture and smells, and what's even better is that you don't have to buy special bags for it. Any trash bag works. And it's on sale for Amazon Prime Day, but just for a few more hours."
