Trailer Trash

I wanted to hide my garbage in an easy to access cupboard. Inspired by a design I found on Pinterest I move the hinges from the side to the bottom of the cupboard, put a little shelf for the garbage to sit on, and used eye screws and ropeto hold the can in place and prevent the garbage can from moving about.

You can see the plans here:

Now that is inspiring. I have been wondering what the best use of the cabinet area just in front of my wheel wells could be put to as it is shallow and not easy to access because it is under the bed/couch. But it is so close to the kitchen I would hate to under utilize the space. The bin on the back of the door idea is something I had not considered for that space. It would be easy to access that way.

We use large (1 gallon or larger) zip lock bags that are placed in the below the sink cupboard. The zip lock bag is disposed of in the campground garbage container before bed. The zip lock keeps any odder at bay and any liquid contained, It also keep ants and other things out.
I had thought about doing something you did but I don't like to have open garbage sitting feeding ants and other insects.
Even at home the garbage is in a closed container and removed at least once a day to the outside garbage can.

I will have to wait and see how it goes with the rodents. There's sunlight coming in through the back of the cupboard somewhere, so I will probably caulk it up. The ants aren't too crazy around here but I will still be taking out the trash on a regular basis. For sure.
