As garbage collection experts in Pitt and Lenoir County, we see a lot of trash every single day. That means we also see a lot of good and bad approaches to putting out the 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.”
Essentially this means that you need to be smart about how you throw things away, especially if you’re using Countryside Sanitation. When it comes to dealing with trash, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. If you haven’t been dealing with trash, you might not know exactly how it should be done. With that in mind, here are some tips to make trash easier for you and the associates handling it.
