Bag and Tie So Your Trash Won’t Fly

The best way to prevent blowing litter is to bag your trash and make sure the bag is securely tied shut. While your recycling cannot be placed in plastic bags, you can more securely contain your recyclables by using a 45-gallon or smaller can instead of a recycling bin.

Be Smart with Sharps

Residents who are unaware of safe needle disposal methods may be tossing loose needles in their trash cans or recycling bins, posing a serious risk of injury and infection to collection workers, neighbors, children, and pets. MMWA’s Be Smart with Sharps campaign aims to prevent accidental needle stick injuries to sanitation workers, and anyone else who comes into contact with curbside refuse materials.
