Trash was a tramp who visited the village every so often. The residents picked up on the fact that he tended to visit at least once a year. Trash returned to the village in 1973 on the day of the sheep dog trials. He witnessed Jim Latimer trying to attack Sharon Crossthwaite and distracted him by throwing rocks at him. He later took residence in the old Millhouse and when Jack Sugden arrived home one day and found him there, he let him stay and started to write a second novel about a tramp. Trash used to do errands for Jack and quickly brought suspicion upon himself by turning up in the village with money, until Jack explained it was his. He found Sharon Crossthwaite's watch down by a stream one day and asked Jack to hand it to the police. When they wanted to question him, he began to panic as he had been locked up previously and didn't want to go back. One night, he got drunk on Jack's whiskey and passed out. When Jack left to get a doctor and locked him in the Millhouse, Trash panicked and tried to escape through the window and down the drainpipe but he fell to his death, leaving the residents to think he had committed suicide.

Trash's name was later revealed to be Ian McIntyre and the villagers were shocked to learn that Ian had a daughter, Penny Golightly, who was born out of wedlock. Ian was born in the mid 1920s in Scotland. He originally worked as a Librarian in Berwick-upon-Tweed. At some point, Ian was involved in an accident and suffered a nervous breakdown and institutionalised. He later absconded for a life of sleeping rough.
