Tip of the Week

Handling other peoples waste and garbage is a job that nobody envies. For those that are charged with this responsibility, there are measures that you can take to protect yourself from what may be stored in many waste receptacles. Here are a few pointers on how to protect yourself.

Wear Gloves You never know what types of objects people dispose of in waste receptacles, and this can often include sharp or pointy objects, To protect yourself from getting a jab, wear dense gloves when emptying waste receptacles.

Seal Tight When you transfer the waste from one receptacle to another, whether bag or other means of transport seal the waste tightly to avoid it spilling out. Emptying a waste receptacle is one thing, picking up a bunch of spilled waste is another.

Disinfect When you empty the waste receptacle, use a disinfectant to finish the job in the empty space. Do this before putting the next bag in and you will find that you won't have as nasty a job the next time you need to empty the waste receptacles.

Emptying waste receptacles is a dirty job but somebody's got to do it. If that is you, than be as safe and sanitary as you can.
