How do I control odors?

You can help prevent odors by rinsing out the kitchen pail and hosing out the wheeled cart after each collection.  

Participants can also place their “wet” materials in a large container and keep that container in the refrigerator or freezer before placing them in the exterior wheeled cart prior to collection on Monday morning.
