Please change the description back.
It's simply not true that the word 'trash' is in common use in UK
English for this context. It is a term from American English and is just
not appropriate in a GB translation.
I think that most people would agree that the OED is a reliable source of information on this. So I quote from:
1 chiefly North American waste material; refuse
cultural items, ideas, or objects of poor quality:if they read at all, they read trash
2 North American a person or people regarded as being of very low social standing:clubs patronized by rock trash
In both contexts it is referenced as North American. The correct UK term
is almost certainly Rubbish.
