Posted by Jay Mattison on 5/23/2022

There are many different trash bag sizes available on the market today. The size of the trash bag you need will depend on the amount of trash you need to purge. Some trash bags are designed for specific purposes, such as kitchen waste or yard waste. Others are simply sized according to their capacity. Trash bags come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each designed for a specific purpose. The most common trash bag shape is the rectangle, which is used for both household and commercial purposes. Other common shapes include the flat bottomed bag, which is often used for industrial applications, and the gusseted bag, which is commonly used for garbage cans and recycling bins.

Waste disposal is an integral part of keeping our communities clean and healthy. Whether you are a residential homeowner or a business owner, it is crucial to understand the various options for trash disposal. Most people know that certain places are legal to dump trash and specific areas where it is not. However, many people either live in a community with city sanitation procedures in place or rent from a landlord who uses a private company. If neither of these scenarios describes your situation, you may want to research and be sure of the specific rules and regulations regarding waste disposal.

Generally speaking, it is legal to dump trash in any designated landfill or incineration facility. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, it may be illegal to dump hazardous materials in some areas in a landfill. Additionally, some landfills have special restrictions on what types of materials you can dispose of there. Suppose you are unsure whether it is legal to dump trash in a particular area. In that case, it is best to check with local authorities or consult your city sanitation department or check your town website for more information. They can help guide you through the process of legal and safe waste disposal to keep your area clean and ensure your home or business remains compliant. In doing so, you can keep your environment sanitary and organized.

Why Are Trash Cans So Expensive

Posted by Jay Mattison on 5/2/2022

Trash cans are often seen as a necessary evil - something that we need in our homes but don't really want to spend a ton of money when buying. They, after all, hold trash. So why are trash cans so expensive? The simple answer is that most trash cans are built to last. Unlike many other household items, trash cans are designed to withstand years of use without showing signs of wear and tear. If you think about how many times you use a trash can in one day, it can be mind-boggling. This durability comes at a cost, but it's worth it in the long run as you won't have to replace your trash can nearly as often as other household items. You can expect your trash can to last for years, even though it gets used regularly.

Posted by Jay Mattison on 5/2/2022

Especially in the hotter months, flies and maggots can pose a problem in the bottom of your garbage cans. Sometimes these common pests can be tricky to eliminate. Not to mention, maggots can carry diseases and pose a health hazard, so it's best to act as quickly as possible. They can quickly take over garbage cans if you're not careful. Luckily, you can take simple steps to kill them and keep them away for good. These everyday household tips can help you rid your trash cans of an infestation problem before it gets out of hand.

To start, make sure you keep the affected area clean and free from food scraps or other organic substances that could attract more maggots to come. If there are traces of food or beverages, this can create the ideal breeding ground and food supply to sustain the larvae. If you find excess flies or maggots in your trash cans, it is essential to act fast. Typically most methods involve things already in your household cleaning supplies. Chemicals and even ordinary soaps can be incredibly effective even after one cleaning treatment.
