Again i’m not looking to create a cyclone. The trash can is located after the dust collector, if you look to the left of the garbage can in the picture you can see the dust collector. I do not need to separate out the chips, I just want to dump everything in the garbage can and let the small particles go anywhere since it is located Outside.

I think ibewjon said it best of “what goes in must come out” and “how is the lid staying on”
This means I have to create the outlet which will also most likely dispense the fine particles. As for the plan for the trash can lid, I was thinking ratchet straps. That was a question I was going to pose later.

The reason I can’t really find good examples anywhere is that people either use a cyclone, or just dump everything outside and not into a garbage can. I know i’m not the only one using this, just difficult to find similar projects.

Just to recap everyone, I do not need to separate anything. This garbage can is located in my outside shed so I just everything to be dumped into it and i don’t mind if the small particles are released into the air since it is outside. The picture of my dust collector is to the left of my garbage can in the pictures.
