View Full Version : The Trash Chute - Inside or Outside of the Apartment?

I've never lived in an apartment that had a trash chute, so I'm wondering whether they are customarily located inside an apartment, or just outside in the hallway. I'm leaning toward hallway, but maybe someone can give a definite answer.

I'd say in the hallway.

Every apartment building I've been in that had a trash chute, it's been out in the hallway- usually either near a stairwell, or near the lobby.

Thanks for your answers - I agree. If it's in the hallway, then other apartments on the same floor could use it too.
