Is it sanitary to have trash next to DW?
I know the ideal situation is to have the trash pullout close to the prep area. However, for the new kitchen that would put it next to my DW, where there is currently a base cabinet. I'm not sloppy, but the idea of food waste next to my clean dishes seem yucky.
Currently my trash is in the cabinet under my cooktop. I removed the flimsy old pull out and found a waste basket that fit. I don't like this set up because it isn't a pull out, and when I am using the stove it is hard for someone to get to the trash.
Do you have your trash next to your DW, and would you do it again?
