As trash pickup specialists in Pitt and Lenoir County, we deal with a ton of trash.
According to a report by the University of Utah,

“Americans throw away enough garbage everyday to fill 63,000 garbage trucks, which if lined up end to end for an entire year would stretch half way to the moon.”

That means it’s important to be smart about how you throw things away, especially if you use Countryside Sanitation. When it comes to trash, it can be easy to be overwhelmed. If you don’t have a history of dealing with trash, you might not know everything about it. With that in mind, here are some tips to make trash easier for you and the associates handling it.

1. Use Trash Bags

This may seem obvious, but always make sure to use trash bags. It is so incredibly helpful to associates at Countryside Sanitation when trash is bagged. It keeps everything contained and makes sure all that is contained makes it to the right place. It not only keeps your trashcan clean and nice smelling but helps the maintenance of our trucks.

2. Separate Large Debris

Large debris like construction materials, tires, and yard debris needs to be taken care of differently. For tips on getting rid of this large debris, check out this guide provided by the Pitt County Transfer Station.

3. Deal with the Oils Separately

While we can deal with cooking and motor oils, they need to be disposed in different ways. To help with that, set containers beside your can and we can dispose of it accordingly.

What Else Can You Do?

Beyond sorting your trash accordingly, Countryside Sanitation can help you even more with trash pickup. We can set the schedule you need and take the trash you need according to your parameters. We would love to help you with that. If you want to get started, contact us.
