our new Forest River Surveyor 5th wheel also has a "hidden trash in the kitchen, built into a swing out door under the kitchen cabinet (they even included the actual trash can that fits it) when it's full, we take the bag out to the truck bed and from there to the campground dumpster. we camp where there are animals such as skunks, bear and such so absolutely no out door trash storage. and it's prohibited where we camp at. and even if it weren't no way do I want an upset skunk out side my camper. common sense used

We do the same process as the OP... But we take the big bag to the dumpster nightly no matter how much is in it.

Dump kitchen and bath daily to get rid of coffee grounds. Place bags by cg rules either in cans or dumpster. Pomerain puppy likes the extra walk to wherever, the longer the walk the better. Carry recycles, mainly water bottles home, and place in county recycle center.

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



just kidding - we do use the dumpster when the bag is full.
X-2 or throw it out of the truck on the way out of thr campground

We have a covered hole in the counter top which has the large size garbage receptacle under. I put a regular garbage bag to line the receptacle. The receptacle can be accessed from the outside so the whole process is painless.

I just have to remember to tell my wife not to throw something down the opening while I am changing the bag. There is also storage for extra bags etc at the access door so the whole process is pretty painless.

We have the same arrangement in our Wildcat MAXX. It really isn't rocket science, you WALK to the campground refuse container WITH your bag of garbage when the bag is full!

Household trash goes into the 13 gal container under the sink. When full, I walk it over to the dumpster at the park. Recycling, (cans and plastic), I have a small cloth bath on a hook behind the bathroom door. When that fills up, I move it into a 30 gal plastic bag in the front storage area under my coach. Recycling goes home with me. Long trips I might have 2 or 3 bags of recycling. Just more $$ for me when I get home. 👍

I am thinking about getting a trash compactor for my motorhome - has anyone tried that?

Just stomp on the bag harder. Dump trash daily--why the extra weight, cost, hassle of a compactor??
