Where do you store your trash in a 19?

Silly question, but where can you store a decent size trash bin? Something large enough for more than toiletries, but small enough that you do not have it blocking your aisle.
Thanks
Ros

Often I find it easier to make a container just the right size instead of shopping stores. We've got a few fastened to the floor under the benches to keep things from rattling around down there, too.

Cool idea for the "classic" but it occurs to me that it's probably not going to work with the new screen door. As Bob said "The times they are a change'n".

We use a bin in the cabinet just under the sink. Have found through the years that a small bag emptied each day works best for us.

Us too, we like our garbage out of sight. Since most of the food waste etc. is generated from above it's pretty simple to just open the door a bit, drop in garbage, close door, done.

On ours I made a metal hoop that holds the plastic waste can. We line it with plastic bags that we lift out and chuck. The plastic waste can basically always stays in place.

So far we found the handles of the bags hook right on the arm of the counter extension and hang down the side of the kitchen in the entry out of the way. The extension arm when folded makes a hook for the bag to hang on and doesn't affect it if the extension is raised or lowered.

Wow! Lots of great ideas.
As a newbie, and hopefully soon-to-order member, I am glad this forum exists.
Thanks everyone.

Sunbeam product available at BB&B. Lid keeps the odors contained and plastic bags stored in a tray at the bottom. Used pop rivets to attach to the door.

with a "lift-off" mounting on the inside of the bathroom door would be a pretty good spot.

I've got a 2 gallon plastic bucket that is a good size for a kitchen garbage bag, and is sturdy enough to turn upside down and stand on (We're a big fan of multi-use items). When setting up, it some times gets used as a stool to reach the awning bits. The rest of the time it serves as a garbage can and moves around to where ever food prep is happening. In the evening it gets tucked in the bathroom.

I first read this thread topic as "where do you store your stash in a 19 ft", and was thinking that I may have to take the fifth on that question. But I then put on my reading glasses and everything was suddenly clear to me, we keep our trash in a small bin in the bathroom. But, I am seriously considering adopting Gbaglo's receptacle on the entry door solution.

We have an oval-shaped tupperware container that sits just inside the door beneath the sink in that small space between the cabinet door and the wheel well. It holds a plastic grocery bag just fine. That's about as much trash as we want in a small camper anyway.
