+1 on the rocket box, but I use a compactor trash bag to line it.

7-day, 1-family San Juan trip took one rocket box for all trash and most recyclables.

Trash was well compacted, contained and mouse proof.

Have started using gorilla trash bags. Self standing, clinch tie to use the second day, ease of disposal at the end of the trip.

Cheaper than a rocket box is a 5 gallon bucket with the waterproof screw on lid. They've been working great for me this season. Stuff goes in trash bag in bucket. Stuff turns into trash. Bucket gets sealed. All for $10.

For the last couple years I have doing the garbage 'football'. Love it.

Lots of good ideas. About the only thing I can add, is that I like to always give trash (food containers/wrappings, etc) a quick rinse before throwing into the trash container, just so it doesn't get funky, in case of a rip or leak or whatever. This might sound like a pain, but if one extra person is doing the rinsing during the meal prep, it doesn't slow things down.

I've seen this in person. We used the Coghlan's trash can in camp and then "coocooned" the trash while breaking down camp. I was amazed at how small and compact it was when it was finished. This is how I'll do trash from now on.

Brewer's grain sacks

Check with your local brewpub and ask for free empty grain sacks.
These woven plastic sacks have plastic liners and hold 50 lbs of grain.
Zip-tie when full.

We use buckets with gamma seals, separate garbage and compost. When the garbage gets full it gets dumped into a trash compactor bag and stuffed into an empty cooler or box. Separating the compost out makes the garbage mild and easy to handle. We divide user days by 8, which is roughly how many gallons of capacity needed for each, garbage and compost.
Cans are carried in a 20 gal mesh bag made by Jan.

We use heavy duty trash bags then stuff them in large bills bag style dry bags. Just picked up a couple more great big dry bags this weekend at a yard sale for a $1 apiece. They aren't real pretty and I wouldn't trust my sleeping bag in them but they make fine trash bag containers.. easy to roll down and compact.

Have a couple of canvas bags with straps on them like a big drybag. Roll the top, cinch it down, easy peasy. Use thick standard can liners inside. Tie the top of the trash bag with an overhand slipknot. Wet trash can go in things like pickle jars, snap top containers from lunch meat, etc from the last meal or two. Cardboard and burnables go on top to pull out at next camp for disposal.
