For safer trash storage in winter, follow these tips:
Secure Against Animals: As the temperatures drop and wild food sources become scarce, hungry animals will often take to scavenging at trash collection spots. It’s a potential safety hazard as well as a mess. Make sure the lids are firmly closed on all barrels to keep wildlife out.
Keep Out Water and Ice: Water can pool in tiny crevices within your bins, and then expand upon freezing, causing cracks and ruptures in the plastic. Water can also attract animals, promoting widespread rotting that makes for a more frustrating (and smelly) trash pickup when the time comes.
