Trash Can for Use with All-Weather Floor Mats

I purchased the Vehicle OCD console organizer off Amazon yesterday, and while I was there I saw the Carbage Trash Can, which I thought was a cool idea. The issue is that it didn't look like it would work with any of the all-weather floor mats that I have. I figured "how hard can it be" (in a Jeremy Clarkson voice), and decided to build my own.

I went and bought a small trash can from Target, and from Home Depot I bought 4 ft. of aluminum flat bar, and black-colored bolts, washers, and nuts. I cut and cleaned up the aluminum, bent it to the correct angle, drilled a few holes, and voila. After making sure it worked, I then Plasti-dipped the aluminum in black, and it looks like it will work just fine.

The most expensive and time-consuming part was the Plasti-dip, otherwise it was about $10 and an hours worth of work.

Do you really accumulate that much trash in your vehicle for the need of that set up?
Maybe it's my clean freak OCD that tells me this wouldn't work in my PP. Good for you and your inventiveness though.
