Here’s probably an outlandish idea.
Have a way to place a point on the map where your trash can is. When the robot is done its cleaning have it park at that spot. Once someone removes and replaces the dust bin it only then automatically returns home to charge.
I’m notorious for forgetting to empty the dust bin until it starts up the next day. This would help me remember to empty it!
