Drill a hole large enough to fit your jigsaw blade in the bottom of the bucket near the center. Use the jigsaw to cut a hole along the line you drew.
Place one end of your bungee in the center of your garbage bag, then wrap the bag around the end. Wrap a zip tie around the bag where the hook on the bungee meets the cord. Tighten down the zip tie to secure it in place.
Place the trash bag over the mouth of the bucket so that the bungee is centered. Make sure the bag droops down into the bucket a little, then secure it around the edge with the other bungee cord. Use duct tape to help seal off the bag.
