No difference in meaning. They both mean "garbage." "Rubbish" is the usual word in the UK, and "trash" or "garbage" in the US.

In British English, waste food and other unwanted "wet" things that can rot that you throw away are called rubbish. In American English, waste food is called garbage and other ''dry' things (such as boxes, paper, bags, plastic bottles) that are thrown away are called trash.
