I like the recessed trash cans - Great Idea.

I took a page from some submarines I use to visit from time to time before the went to sea. They unpacked EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING to its lowest common denominator in packaging. Cereal was combined in bigger plastic bags, cardboard anything was tossed, everything was combines and reduced. Dumpsters were full the day of departure from the docks, everyhing had to be compressed.

That's what we do - out goes all packaging, once the food is used up we usually end up with a zip lock bag to put trash in.

There is nothing worse than to much trash except having to take out the trash.....

Hi, I have wondered what people were doing for trash containers in their trailers. We have been hanging plastic super market bags on the door handles in the kitchen area, but don't like it. I like your ideas, but I don't think it is exactly what we want. I'm glad you started this thread in hopes that many more suggestions and pictures will appear; So let's hear from everyone else on what you do for a trash can in your Airstream.

We use a medium size, (20 gal?), trash can in the kitchen. I put it in the closet during travel and take it out once we are set up. It fits perfectly in the spot by the door next to the bedroom, (since the tambour doesnt work half of the time anyway. Have I mentioned how much I hate that stuff??? ). In the bathroom I just use a small plastic bag from the grocery store. You can see the top part of the can in the photo. I love Bob's idea of having one out of the way. Maybe I could remove that lovely tambour under the sink area and put one inside there?? Kill 2 birds with one stone!

What's the old saying? Garbage in, garbage out. The best way to avoid garbage is to not put anything in the trailer. Bill already suggested that eating out eliminates the garbage issue and after much thought (okay, not much, but some) I have to agree. So tomorrow I'll grenade all the food in the trailer and from now on we eat out.............just like if we were staying in a motel. The other option is when we do have to eat in we'll put the garbage in our travel companions garbage container which they leave by their door (on the inside) during the daytime. They will never notice.

The problem is everytime were in a store and see some item that looks shinny silver...we think it would look cool inside the Airstream.
Not thinking if we really need it, or if it will fit.

I would have picked up that can too.
And will have a problem passing it up, even after reading your report.

You could always solve your trash problem the way someone else in our unit does. He doesn't keep any trash receptacles inside his trailer (that I know of) but instead keeps a 20-30 gallon trash bucket under his awning for trash!

Has anyone used one of those collapsable trash containers, from CW I think? Are they sturdy?

Wal Mart bags on the knobs here, too.

Hi, that's an idea; [hidden trash receptical] How about I cut a hole in the floor between the axles with a hatch door and covered with a throw rug? No one will notice until I move my trailer to the next camp site.

Yes, we didn't get it there but have a similar one. We use a large one outside the door. We attach it just below the awning arm when the awning is up with the velcro strap so it doesn't blow away. I have a small version of it in the bathroom. I line the little one with plastic bags from stores and the big one with large garbage bags secured to the sides by clothespins used only for that purpose (otherwise the bags won't stay put!). It works for us, but I wouldn't say its ideal still looking for new ideas. I prefer to keep in in the back of the truck cause its a garbage container. I'm thinking I'll do something different in the future. I try to do most of the food prep at home, and reduce packaging as others have said, so I have less trash.

Didn’t Mel Gibson have a trap door in his SOB in Lethal Weapon? Now we really know why it was there.
