It has been a rough winter so far in Massachusetts. With record-breaking snow fall and huge accumulations, most residents are dealing with very high snow banks. This can create challenges when it comes to trash removal services. Here are a few tips on proper trash bin placement to ensure that you do not experience an interruption in trash removal services.
Condition of Your Trash Bins
Keep the cover on your trash bins at all times. This prevents snow from accumulating inside the bin (during a storm), taking up valuable space and adding unnecessary weight. Lighter weight bins will be easier for you to move to the curb on trash day. It will also help keep your bins in good condition despite the rough weather. After a snow storm, be sure to clear the snow off the covers to prevent a collapse.
Proper Trash Bin Placement at the Curb
All Massachusetts residents are dealing with the same issues,…huge snow banks everywhere! Come trash day, you may be wondering where to put your bins.
If you use normal trash barrels, you can place the bins at the end of your driveway or in a spot along the sidewalk that is cleared out. If using the sidewalk option, make sure that there is plenty of clearance so your bins will not get stuck or easily fall over with the wind.
Massachusetts Snow Buildup Challenges
With more snow on the way, the challenges will continue for Massachusetts residents. Keep these tips for proper trash bin placement in mind to ensure that your trash gets picked up weekly without interruption. Missing a week will make it extremely difficult as there are few places where you can safely store excess trash among all this snow.
