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.
