I always liked how Rachel Ray used a trash bowl on the counter to hold all the trash while she cooked. I love the idea of not running back and forth to the trash can. The thing that I did not like was the fact that it left me one more dish to wash on top of the sink full I already have. My solution is to use grocery sacks. They hang nicely on my drawer pulls. When I am done cooking I just throw the whole bag in the trash can.
