Clever ideas on garbage can placement in Axis

I cannot find a good place to put a garbage can in my Axis 24.1. Anyone have any good ideas?

We have a rather small one (about the size that a plastic grocery bag fits over) that we place behind the driver's seat next to the couch. Just have to remember to move it out of the way when extending or retracting the slide.

We have a small stainless steel with a lid. We put it in the space to the rear and left of the driver's seat after the slide is extended. Just be sure the can does not interfere with the bunk lowering if you intend to use the bunk. It is usually just my wife and I and the dog, so we seldom lower the bunk.

We have a small one too...found that placing it behind the drivers seat will be best location...when going down the road, we put items like that in the shower !
For trash when on the road, I tie a grocery bag to a drawer handle..easy disposal when full.

We have an extremely small one that fits in the cabinet under the sink.

Typically when we're camping it will get emptied daily so the size hasn't been that big of an issue so far.

We keep it and a collapsible step stool in that cabinet. For outside we have one of those flat trash cans:

I guess we are just average, again. We use Wal Mart bags in a small container behind the drivers seat, a small wicker basket with another Wal Mart bag in the shower and a flat foldable that holds a larger kitchen size bag that we keep outside. We either zip that up at night or hang it high on the coach if there are raccoons or other varmints.

We will be filling all those bags in a month as we set out for our first trip of the season. This time to Gulf Shores to check out the new season of oysters and shrimp. I always want to make sure they are being taken care of properly. We especially look for the oysters from Rockefeller and the shrimp from Broiled as they need extra care and attention.

We have a small one like everyone else sitting next to the passanger seat on the right side. It is accessable from the main room...just move it before trying to swing the seat around or lower the overhead bunk.

We have a collapsible dormatory style laundry basket we use as trash can in the shower with two trash liners in it; first a heavy duty leave bag then a regular kitchen 13 gal inside of it that gets changed as the trash fills up. So far, no leaks.

I'm with JamieGeek on this one. Small one under the sink, another small one in the head. Emptied every morning before we hit the road. A good use for some of those plastic grocery bags.
But then again, there's just two of us. More people = more trash. Suggest the collapsible one for bigger needs.

Don't forget -- if you put a small one in the space between either captain's chair and the outside wall, move it before lowering the bunk. Voice of experience speaking here -- it will stop the bunk from fully lowering, and the can will be bent and you'll have to go but another one. How do I know that? You'll have to ask my wife.

I use my under sink storage for other things. Found this collapsable garbage bag holder on CW - seems to do the trick. I usually keep it next to the wall by the sofa in our Axis 24.1.

Old tupperware cereal container with small trash bag fits perfectly between toilet and shower. Small trash can "rides" between passenger seat and wall. When we park we move it behind support post for front table. That change was made after smashing a couple when lowering the bunk!
