The Latest Chumra: Opening and Closing a Trash Receptacle Cabinet

In my response to the email at the bottom of this post, I was mattir. My correspondent cites the basis of the Machmirim. I would like to add that SSK classifies a graf shel rei'i as a kli she'melachto l'heter.

1. The garbage remains a graf shel rei'i - it may be carried from the cabinet inside the kitchen to another location when necessary.  2. I don't understand why this is a situation that requires tiltul min ha'tzad. That is very specific to peels and shells. Can you not bring a trash bag to a table in order to fill it up? IIRC, a graf shel rei'i does not require tiltul min ha'tzad.  3. This business of the fridge door is also mind-boggling. The opening of the fridge door is not a case of tiltul, but of opening a door. What's in the door is meaningless. (The cabinet with the garbage might be different, since you are opening it specifically for the garbage.)  4. I don't understand RSBC's sugggestion - putting something non-muktza in a garbage would generally make it ma'us and garbage in and of itself!  KT, GS, YGB  XXX YYY wrote:
