Keeping Pests Out of Your Dumpster

Dumpster Rental Near MeAre you renting a dumpster for a cleaning or construction project? You may have to deal with pests in the area getting into your trash. Here are three ways you can stop pests from messing with your dumpster:

  • No Food Allowed – Unless you are renting our dumpster explicitly for use with food waste, you should make sure that your food waste is thrown away in a regular trash can that has a lid. You can haul any of these bags at the end of the week when you are finished for the day.
  • Cover Your Dumpster – If you know that there are many pests in the area, you can cover your dumpster at all times to make sure they stay out of it. You can also consider investing in a lock or something that will tie it down to stop raccoons, possums, neighborhood cats, and other creatures from breaking in.
  • Use Concrete – Where will you be storing your dumpster? If you have a space that is on concrete and off of the grass, you should use it. When you place your dumpster on the grass, you are inviting pests to come in and take a load off.
