We had the same problem with our Duetto, which is almost the same as a Symbol. We use the box part of an old shredder. It is tall and narrow so fitted opposite fridge, against bathroom wall. When driving, we tucked it behind the rear nearside chair. 

Then I had the bright idea of making a hole in the bin near the top, inserting a large metal 'S' hook and hooking it to the lock on the rear door. Keeping it clear of the floor makes the area feel more spacious.

Incidentally, normal carrier bags fit as liners really well.

DOn't they normally have holes in to stop children suffocating themselves? Messy if any wet items put in.

I just put a couple of hooks on the back door and we hang a bag from those

We always have a bin bag hanging from the internal rear door handle.

That's what we did when we had the Symphony.

We adopt the same procedure as Heanorboy and Paul 300358, works very well for us.

We've always used a miniature swing top bin which takes carriers bags as liners. When in use it stands by the gas cupboard, being banished to the bathroom when in transit. At other times we use it in various positions by the kitchen as a 'stop' for the washroom door allowing various degrees of privacy/extra room for operations therein.

Works well for us!

We bought a small one from Spinney for our Symbol. Other caravan shops must have similar. It came with a fixing bracket which we've attached to the wall under the bit that lifts up under the wardrobe. The wall dips in a little just there, so the bin doesn't get in the way. It has a flip top lid, doesn't get in the way and is really handy being next to the kitchen. It just lifts off the fixing bracket when it needs a wash and we use small bin liners in it.

I have a small plastic waste bin Velcro'd to the wheel arch in the bathroom, but use that for spare toilet rolls etc.  For rubbish I hang a tie handle doggy bag to a Command cord bundler hook, which is affixed to the outside of the bathroom wall. That way I don't have a big bag of rubbish building up, just take it to the bin often. The type of hook saves it jumping off when I'm on the move. If I wasn't able to get rid of rubbish frequently then I would store it in my fiamma box.

Hanging a nappy sack on the rear door lock works in my Harmony, needs regular disposal but smells nice too !

I saw some M/home waste bins at SW show last week £10 plastic with a flip up lid and a quick release wall/door mounting bracket. Wish had bought one now. Oh well back to the Becks Beer dozen  cardboard box on the floor. content

We have always used one of these on the rear door for either carrier bags with no holes in them or small swing airliners

We have a few plastic self adhesive hooks near back door from which to hang plastic bags. No room in Symbol to waste floor space or create a trip hazard near to the loo door

Just fitted an old shredder box to our symbol this weekend. Perfect. Thanks. allthumbz

Auto Sleeper should really fit a bin as standard on all vans. It's a universal requirement.
Personally I hang carrier bags off the cooker knobs on my old 2002 Symbol and now my 2017 Warwick. All the suggestion in this thread are better and I will try them out. The S hooks always come in handy as do the self adhesive plastic hooks, especially the 3M ones you can take off again.
