I am curious why they had waste baskets in the state rooms. I would love to hear your thoughts on these mysteries.

The Russian translation is 'basket for papers' so it may just have been used for any paper waste for example menus, dance cards or invitations that someone may have had in their hands and did not want to carry anymore - just an opinion.
