The following is in support of Mark Tucker's complaint regarding the large garbage cans.

We are a senior citizen couple living in a community of condo townhouses mostly occupied by seniors. We have a similar quantity of garbage that doesn't near fill the existing size containers.

We are required to store the garbage containers in our garage. The containers are so large that our car would no longer fit in the garage. Others are probably in similar circumstances or have modified their garage to just fit their car 

Some form of small container should be allowed for small quantities.
