Help Control Litter in your Neighborhood!

Control litter by placing your loose trash in trash bags and tie closed. Place bags in trash can or 96g cart and close the lid. Then when your trash is dump all that is dumped out are the bags. NO LOOSE TRASH to blow around!

Also, bagging your trash will help control any SMELLS / ODORS in your trash can or 96g cart. If your trash can or 96g cart smells wash it out with the following steps:

*Please be SAFE! Wear safety glasses, gloves and old clothing when following these steps.

Step 1 Remove all large items inside container.

Step 2 Spray water inside & out of container, use a brush on solid areas.

Step 3 Pour bleach inside the container and slosh it around and or use a brush on the inside – this will do a deeper cleaning and eliminate the smell / odor.

Step 4 Rinse out the container and let dry out completely.

If you still have a smell / odor – repeat steps 3 and 4 and let the bleach soak inside container 15-30 minutes. It might take a couple of times of steps 3 and 4 for more stubborn stronger smells / odors but it will work.


– Place at curb please make sure the front of the cart is facing towards the street. This will help us dump the cart safely. Click here for more information.

Just awesome. Always reliable and they go get the barrel when we accidentally forget to take it to the curb. That effort doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for that!
