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".

I use this container from Lee Valley. Perfect size for our 19' clips on to cabinet doors and counter extension, you can move it around to where you need it Countertop Collection Bin - Lee Valley Tools

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.
