Default Where's the trashcan in a Prius?


Where's the ashtray/trashcan in a Prius? I know that Toyota took out
the cigarette lighters and put phony ashtrays in just for trash a
while back like most manufacturers. I can't even find that in the new
ones.

So where do you put your trash? Out the window?

I have an aftermarket trashbag with a flexible metal cord designed to
fit in a vent. Problem is that no vent is available that isn't either
over a glove box, button or ready to fly out the door.

Can't hang it off the glove box or that won't close.

Can't wrap it around the shift like in the previous version since the
shift is sprouting up.

Are you supposed to put a mini trashcan in that lower tray of that
stupid bar with the shift? That's where I keep my Kleenex.

And what do you call that area anyway? That funny triangular
horizontal plastic thing that divides the driver from the passenger?

The drive-in movie make-out preventer?

These cars. Really.

I put a bread pan for trash where you put your box of tissues and a small
package of tissues in the lower glove box. The ashtray solution is here:

Don't even think of putting a cigarette lighter in one of the power
receptacles. They are just for keeping your iPod and Cell Phone charged.
BIC has a solution to that dilemma.

As for the other problem.... get a room. :-)

Since I'm so conservative and mild, I settled on something understated
and dignified for the function. My wife will be delighted on my
choice:

Passenger side foot well?

Seriously, I take one of those useless plastic bags the clerks always
use for even a single purchase and keep it on the passenger side. When
it is full and I'm filling up, I toss it in their trash can. Then I go
in and buy one of those bottled coffee drinks and get a new plastic
bag.

You're parking the wrong direction. We always parked with the rear of
the station wagon facing the screen and the window rolled down. Pads,
pillows a cooler, mosquito repellant and we're good to go.

I liked that one too. I can hardly wait to read your review.

I sold out on this one. Went by my local mega auto parts store and
saw some plastic thingie for $2.50. Funny thing, they called it a
"french fry holder" but it fits in the door well and I'm D-Lighted.
FWIW, they must be scared someone might not know what it is intended
for since there is a label GLUED to the front and back. :-)

I have two, a nice airtight one my Toyota dealer gave me and a lighted one
for night driving. Both sit low enough as to allow the center console lid
to close over them.
