Need ideas for outside garbage.

Everyone on this board has such great ideas for their campers. I was wondering what you use for outside garbage. I do most of my cooking outside and just throw my garbage into a grocery bag which sits on top of the picnic table. Here's a pic of my system. It's sad, I know, and not a very effective system. What do you do? Do you hang it on the side of your camper?

2" spring clamp and clip the bag to the table has worked well for us.

But, what I really want is the garbage can lid on a wire frame. I forget the brand/name, but it looks pretty slick.

We hook ours on the tongue or back bumper of the trailer depending on how the site is set up. We have two bags. Black for trash and a white for recycles.

Just started using one if three pop up trash cans. The smaller one fits task kitchen bags , and it zips up if needed at night. When it's windy, I just put a short log in the bottom under the trash bag

I use one of these. It collapses when you take out the bag for easy storage. Been using it for years. Self-Standing Garden Bag

I use a collapsable trash can with a 30 gal. bag in it. 4 small spring clips hold the bag in place. You can set the whole thing in the bed of the TV to keep critters out of it at night.

We use this for our outdoor garbage, line it with a trash bag & use a black plastic hanger reinforced with metal to hang on trees, great for us

One of the campgrounds we stay at recycles & we use this type for bottles & boxes, then end up with a much small trash bag that is kept inside in a plastic can until the next day when the trash is removed from the site, If there is a dumpster I take the trash to it usually daily. ................ hate to leave it outside as too many critters can get into it........

Years ago had a metal can outside woke to a loud was "Ricky" holding the lid handle... jumping up & down til the lid came off (& it was tied to the can)....... It was rather entertaining but at 2 AM not so much.............

We use a small trashcan with a flip up lid with a plastic liner in it. It is the last thing in the trailer when we travel and the first thing out when we park.
