Eliminate Odor

Just because you use trash bags, it doesn’t free you from harm. With all the rotting food, disposable diapers, and other malodorous items we throw into our dumpsters it is no wonder that we stifle the urge to plug our noses every time we take out the trash. Waste, liquids, smells can leak through even the smallest of tears in a trash bag and seep into the pores of a dumpster. This can make your dumpster smell even when it is empty. Cleaning your dumpster regularly, can get rid of this odor.

Eliminate Disease Causing Bacteria - Germs

Controlling pests, rodents and the spread of dangerous molds, viruses, and bacteria is a concern now more than ever. Throwing away old food and used diapers can infect your dumpster with germs and diseases, such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E-Coli. Sanitizing your dumpster will kill these germs and help keep you and your family healthy and safe.

Get Rid of Maggots

Have you ever noticed how flies are attracted to your trash? Did you know that a dirty dumpster is perfect for flies to lay their maggot-producing eggs in and flies are implicated in more than 35 communicable human viruses? According to the Washington State Department of Ecology, flies are attracted to odors, and lay their eggs in “moist, organic material.” While having flies buzzing around your head can be irritating, it’s even worse to find maggots (baby flies), crawling through your rubbish. Keeping your dumpster odor-free will keep flies from finding them and eliminate the potential for migrating rodents who carry their own diseases.
