Question disposing of trash?

if you go from rv park to rv park I know you can throw trash away before you leave or upon arrival. but what do you do while you boondock or when you're traveling? where and how do you dispose your trash?

Truck stops are a great place to throw away trash. Fill up and dispose of your trash at the same time.

Yes like Jay said truck stops are good. Another great place to dispose of trash would be rest areas.

If you're fulltiming you will now have to carry every bag of trash to the dumpster or along your route you'll need to drop some trash. Once we started fulltiming we became a lot more aware of how much we throw away. We have cut back our trash by buying products with less packaging and if it does come with packaging that won't be needed we take it out of the package and dispose of it at the stores trash can before we come back to our coach. A lot of RV parks have recycle bins as well and we keep a reusable recycle bag for bottles or cans that can be recycled.

The rving trash truth. Fueling up? dispose of trash. Getting some food? dispose of trash. Stopping at a rest area? dispose of trash.

Driving around the country and looking at the sides of the road, it appears that many dispose of their trash simply by throwing it out the window.

MrE I regretfully agree. It's sad I have seen many people throw things out their window as though it's no big deal. Wrappers, cups, diapers and so on.

Yeah Charlotte, some people can be pretty disgusting. Once when driving through a small town here in Louisiana I had someone throw a dirty diaper out their window and it landed on my windshield! Lucky my wife was with me or I'd be in jail for assault.

I'm not sure my wife would have been able to stop me.
