People in the UK never use the expression trash can. Variations of the word bin are used, eg dustbin, rubbish bin or just bin.

Yes, exactly. And it's the same in Ireland: we'd say (dust- / rubbish-) bin, not trash can or garbage can.

Typically in US <<trash can>> is for the outdoor trash disposal and << waste basket>> is for the indoor, in the rooms, offices etc. Just saying. May be I am wrong, but then again I am wright.

We say bins in the South of England. Outdoor ones used to be dustbins, now just bins; indoor ones in kitchen =bin; can use bin or waste-paper bin/basket in the main rooms though there's not much waste paper now; in the office it's bin.

"Trash can" is definitely American. No English person would ever use the expression. "Waste paper basket" please!
