There are multiple trash cans in each camping loop. You are never more than 20 steps from a trash can and recycle bins.

+1 to both. They are really convenient to get to. The trash and recycling are generally emptied pretty quickly. The only time I saw a pile at the can was at the end of the weekend and everyone is going home. Even then the maintenance crews had them tidied up quickly.

Best advice I have is to purchase the portable trash cans if mobility is limited or on site collection is needed. (large party of campers) They generally are 20 inches in diameter and open up to about 30 inches tall. There is a zipper around the rim. The collapsible cans take the black garage bags for liners. My wife and I have 2. One for garage and one for recycling. Works out great when we go camping.

Or, you can tie the trash bag to the camper and toss it every time you leave the site.

Since we have a 2 year old that is still in pull ups, we used the plastic grocery bags as our trash bags and tossed them when ever we had a diaper.

We did this same thing, except that we hung a plastic grocery bag from the grill, since we were in a tent. Of course we weren't actually using the grill!

We just walked it to the nearest bin whenever it was full.

All I can say is be careful about leaving stuff outside at the Fort.

There are professional thieves lurking, monitoring, PROBING for a weakness. They are some of the most cunning, scheming pickpockets the Fort has ever seen.

Yes, I am talking about...






Beware these marauders!
