Where do you put your trash can?

In both our previous Class A's we had space for a 13 gal trash can under the sink. In our last FW we had space for 2. In our current MBS Class C, there is no place I can think of to put even a small trash can. Looking for creative ideas you folks may have come up with.

I used the grocery bags I received when shopping and used them as liners on a small gallon can.

Open each bag and put them into the trash can like a liner. You might have eight layered in there, but it’s not an issue. (I ended up putting Command hooks on the sides to hold the handles.)

Every. Single. Day. I removed one liner and whatever had accumulated in it — disposing in any publicly available garbage receptacle.

Library, gas station, sidewalk can, grocery store, wherever. Nobody notices one small bag of trash being dropped in an appropriate receptacle.

Thanks again for all the suggestions. I ended up going with a small 3 gal trash can that fits nicely near the steps behind the passenger seat. As someone else said, there is is no perfect answer as each RV is different. Cheers.

In our Ford chassis Class C we have a regular size plastic tall kitchen trash can that fits between the front seats on the floor. That’s always been the trash location, originally using a little bathroom sized container, until we realized a big one would fit. A Sprinter cab is usually more open to the house than with Fords or Chevys, but that spot works for us great.

We've got two collapsable trash cans that we keep just outside the door of our fiver. I keep a sand bag in the bottom of each so they don't blow away and I keep three binder-clips (office supplies) attached to the top rims to hold the trash bags in place.

One is for trash and the other is recycling.

Yep, totally get. I do appreciate all the creative answers though. It's definitely giving me some ideas.

We've never put ours in a cabinet, as that takes up way too much space in the cabinets that we need for other things. Even on rigs that have a cabinet specifically designed for such, that cabinet is always used for something else that needs to go there.

Sooo, in nearly every rig I've owned, we put the trash can under the dinette when on the road. When parked, it goes somewhere else (typically in hallway across from the kitchen).

I've always used a one gallon plastic bucket under my kitchen sink, and lined with a regular grocery bag. It doesn't hold much, so it gets emptied every day and sometime twice a day, fitting into almost any public waste can en route.
A few years ago, I started bagging plastic bottles, etc in a large kitchen bag I hang on a cabinet knob in a corner, and I do the same with a smaller bag for aluminum cans...those get taken out when they are full and/or when we see a recycle place.

Our rig has an island with room inside of it for one trash can, but we also recycle. The island has a deepish overhang on one side and after much searching for something skinny, found a Rubbermaid covered can about 7x18 (est.) that holds a 13 gallon bag.

I recently found a narrow waste can that I mounted with a couple tie downs and a bungee to the side of the kitchen base cabinet by the entry door. Handy location. It was a bother to keep opening and shutting the cabinet door when the waste can was in there, especially when someone was standing in the passage at the sink.

What I used in sleeper might work in your Class C; I bought a small rectangular plastic trash can. Cut slots to lace strap in corner, hung on back of passenger seat. Used bib-bags for liners, reduced the number of urban tumbleweeds
