I have two.
A paper scrap pail on my desk to recycle the small paper scraps.
An actual garbage can under my desk...under, so no small punches or scissors can fall into it....I make a mess when I'm working, lol.

At a crop they usually tape a plastic bag to the table edge for each scrapper. I will move mine to my right as I am right handed.

At home I have one on the right and left. One on right is the one I use when just scrapping. One on left is by my trimmer.

Mine scrapamabob is to my right, as my scrappy supplies are all to the left of my desk. This way I can easily roll my chair without hitting my bag or drink.

I generally only throw away tiny bits of paper, etc during crafting sessions, so I only have a very small tupperware container that I use to collect those to toss into the trash later. I move it around depending on what I'm doing.

At home - trash on the left, recycling on the right. At a crop, it all goes into one bag and it does not matter which side it's on.

I have them everywhere! LOL I have the regular large basket one that sits under my desk whether I am scrapping or not. I have two collapsible ones, one is small and that is on top of my standing height table, and one is to the right on the floor. Then I usually also have a basket or a small plastic tote for scrap pieces to be put in the big scrap tote later, and then there is a small basket for all those backings from the squares that I used as adhesive. I am covered for waste material.

Interesting question. Mine is on my right, but I never thought about why. That's just where it is! I AM right handed though.

Recycling on the right, non-recycling on the left.

So funny that other people put thought into this. I thought I was the only one..

funny you ask about this-- the other night I had moved mine to the other side of the table, and still automatically tossed stuff out where the wastebasket used to be! lol!! I'm right-handed, but my garbage can sits on the left side of my workspace. At a crop, it's probably somewhere under the table or on my right side, but at home, I guess it's gotta be on the left.

Right handed with trashcan to the left. This started because of the layout of the room made it necessary. Now if I ever crop away from home it has to be on the left or I am putting trash all over the floor!

Left side, just around the corner of my desk.

I just sweep everything onto the floor until I'm done. (Kidding, but it sure looks that way sometimes.)

Right handed, but can is on my left--that puts it between my work table & the desk where my Cutterpede lives.

I've been a dilettante, but I'm thinking of dabbling in something else.
