A variation on a theme, but since we've had our 19', we've been trying to find a solution for where to keep our trash out of the way and to keep odors minimized. I recently stumbled upon the Sunbeam Trash Rack at Bed Bath & Beyond. It's only $20 and I suspect everyone receives their 20% or $5 off coupons in the mail so the net cost was only $15. The little white plastic pan on the bottom provides a firm base for the trash bag and there's a place to store additional rolls of bags (which BB&B also sells) at the very bottom. I used 3 long 5/32" pop rivets to attach it to the inside of the door and placed rubber bushings between the frame and the door to prevent any rubbing against the door. Seems like a pretty secure attachment.

Small plastic trash can from Target fits under sink and is out of site. We don't like having more trash than what fits in that. Empty it one time per day.

We do this too, which is perfect for us, as 90% of our waste is created outside, and this is much handier that having a can inside. I also added a set of hooks to the inside of the bathroom door, so if it is needed inside, it is real easy to bring in, and is out of the way for working.

We did have it attached inside a cabinet door, but found it too restrictive for using that space for other things.

We like the IKEA folding basket hanging on suction cups on the door! Love having it out of the way. It has taken a year to figure out the best spot to store everything. ��
