Bottom-Heavy Trashcan

Nico's new thing is to knock over the kitchen trashcan when he wants attention (his old thing was to get in the pantry and knock the canned goods of the shelf). Anyway, I can't have him knocking it over five times a day and spilling who knows what all over the carpet, so I'm looking for a bottom-heavy trashcan. Anyone seen one of these before?

Do you put the stone in the trashcan? I guess I never thought of that!

I have a trashcan with a spring-loaded door on top that snaps onto the trash can body; it won't spill if tipped over. They have tipped it over a couple times. And also the door keeps them out.

I don't really remember. On the bottom it says "Rubbermaid", so I suppose any department store. I found this on the Rubbermaid web site...I think this is the same as I have: Rubbermaid Waste Basket
