    What do you do with rubbish in the car?

    Ok a boring topic but just curious what other people do...
    Just wondering what do you do with rubbish in the car?? Those food wrappers and empty bottles.
    For example do you use a plastic bag to collect those, or just chuck them on the floor and clean up later, or use a bin (soft or hard designed for cars)?

    Cans/food wrappers/etc - conveniently place them somewhere where they dont make mess, then bin them when i get out the of the car.

    Plastic bottles/glass bottles - Back floor. Let it build up for about a week, then bin them all. As long as they dont leak, i don't mind.

    I tend to stuff small food wrappers in the various ash trays and door pockets in my car. Then I empty them when they're too full to put more crap in .

    Same here - except water.

    I do allow some exceptions on country drives - minties and fruit etc, but NO chips.

    Gee, we're harsh aren't we. I don't want to be cleaning up other people's food scraps though.

    Untidy vs neat-freak is ultimately your personal choice, but if you have to accumulate anything, keep it off the floor and bin it at the first opportunity.

    Otherwise it's just unsafe, because before too long, with all your to-ing and fro-ing, you're going to wind up with [email protected] rolling around under your feet. Or, if you leave it on the rear parcel shelf, possibly hitting you in the back of the head at your next crash-stop. Or, at the very least, distracting you every time it re-emerges from under the seat.

    And that suggests that you're not all that serious about being the best, most focused driver you can be ... but again, that's your choice ...

    Guys,

    the back floor ... That's what it's for. When the rubbish gets to high though it a good idea to give it a quick clean out (it'll drive you made things rolling across the back floor and hitting the doors when you corner mallet )

    Thats like trying to "half grow" a beard Shane. Gets itchy when you are half way there. If you let the process go onto its conclusion everything smooths out.

    Once a decent amount of rubbish acumulates it stops rolling around and just settles into a nice stable heap. When you can't see out the rear, just open the windows and it will "self adjust".



    Cheers
