My grandpa says this a lot and he is quite serious. I haven't figured out the distinction, but he clearly believes that there is one...
Garbage is food (garbage disposal)
Trash is everything else
They could be referring to people. lol
"Trash" refers specifically to discards that are theoretically dry (newspaper, cans, so on).
"Garbage" refers to wet discards like food remains, yard waste, etc.
"Refuse" is collection of wet and dry discards.
