Besides, I've always heard that garbage is good for the soil.



just kidding - we do use the dumpster when the bag is full.
Not to mention all the wildlife you get see

It has an inner liner bucket which can be easily rinsed out. We place it in the shower when in transit. Didn't want to use "real estate" under the sink--prefer to use that space for coffee maker, nesting pots & pans, dish pan & soaps, etc. With our 2 big dogs, this type of container works really well: our food hounds can't raid the trash can! The small size is an advantage as it prompts us to empty it daily, so less chance of problems with flies and ants (and odors)
x2 for us
We have to walk the greyhounds so we walk to the dump...the perfect place to take poop bags too!

WayneLee. Don't know who invented the undercounter w/ outer access door but my 2007 ALFA had that setup and boy was it ever convenient. Love our newer Charleston but sure miss the easy trash system. 😎🦃 Happy Turkey Day !!!

We only take the outside trash bag to the dumpster when it is full or if it is foul smelling.


How do you do it?

Guess it really depends where we are staying. We have a trash can under the sink in kitchen and one in the bath. Once they are full we simply place the bags outside the camper by our number post and the garbage truck picks it up (Trash OUTSIDE and this is park POLICY) if we are staying at one site we like to stay in Ga. We also have a outside trash can that we place a bag in and when it gets full we take it to the dumpster provided by the Park if we are staying at a park we like close to home. The park we are in at the moment i am writing this post provides a 2" od stainless steel shepherds hook 5' off the ground to hang a trash bag. So see, many different ways but only you can decide what is best for you. Happy camping.

The pole you are thinking is a trash bag holder is actually to hang a lantern from.

Thanks to those that recycle whenever possible
Daily trip to the trash bin solves most problems

We have two 13 gal. cans under our sink. One for trash and the other for recycles. We usually depend on dumpsters but we boondock with a metal trash can that has been coon proofed with chains I bolted on(we don't have bears where we camp). We always recycle we will carry it home before we would just throw it in the trash. We never keep trash or cans outside period.

Say it ain't so!!!!!

Most campgrounds around here frown big time on this... Who wants to come behind and cook over burned garbage?
