Are you tired of the way your trash smells? Worried you have the worst smelling trash on the block? At Countryside Sanitation we specialize in garbage collection in Pitt and Lenoir County and we are well aware of how stinky trash can get.

You might think that it’s unavoidable, but there is always something you can do about it. Of course, no trash can is going to smell like a fresh garden but there are some key things you can do to make it smell a lot better. With that in mind, here are 3 tips to help with that trash smell.

1. Use Baking Soda Or Pet Deodorizers 

You don’t necessarily need to buy fancy scented trash bags to get rid of the funk. You can add a spray of a natural pet-odor deodorant to suppress bad smells without adding nasty chemicals to your indoor air. In addition, you can also try sprinkling baking soda on top of kitchen scraps to eliminate odor. By doing those two things, you can definitely lower the trash smell in your kitchen.

2. Lessen the Trash Load with Composting

We may specialize in trash pickup, but we are big fans of composting. You can minimize your kitchen garbage by composting organic waste. For tips on how to start your own compost pile, check out our handy guide.

3. Don’t Let it all Pile Up

The leading reason trash can stink is all the left over residue from past trash loads. Make sure to clean all garbage cans, especially Countryside Sanitation provided bins, once per month. You can use any all-purpose cleanser to do this.  This simple move to clean will reduce or even eliminate odor.
