Ro di system question

So I am ordering my ro di system next week. I'm not too familiar on them but I figure I would learn as I go. I'm doing it so I can have pure water so eventually have a reef. What I wonder though is how do you wait all day for the water to come out as I have seen that they range from about 70-120 gpd? I don't want to have to sit home all day and hope that it doesn't overflow. I have seen that people use garbage bins to hold a lot of water but I don't have enough space by my tank to hold a garbage bin and my dad won't let me connect the pure water line from the faucet to next to my tank. So I'm wondering good methods of going about this so it is not so much a hassle.

My. Rodi unit is above my slop sink in the basement. I pump it into 32gal Brute trash cans. They have wheels for these trash cans and that's how I move my water from the unfinished part of my basement to the finish part.
