Most people store their trashcans in the cabinet under the sink. It seems logical, if we think about the fact that the trashcan is not the most aesthetically pleasing object to be seen by those who walk into the kitchen. From this perspective, the trashcan is one of those objects that are very necessary but must stay out of sight.
Another benefit of storing it in a cabinet is that you save some space into your kitchen, which is particularly important if the room is small and you struggle to make it comfortable.
The bonus of hiding it in the cabinet under the sink or under the counter is the ease of use. These are the places most used for food preparation, therefore you do not have to transport the waste from one part of the kitchen to another.

Keeping it behind closed doors does not allow bad odors to spread in the room and prevents your nosy pet from finding it.
The only disadvantage – if we may call it so – is the fact that some people tend to forget about taking out the garbage, when it is stored out of sight. And, after a couple of days, things start to degrade dramatically in there and no cabinet will prevent the olfactory discomfort anymore, not to mention that trash is a perfect environment for bacteria.
