No matter what type of container I use for my garbage and recyclables, they are stolen. It has cost me quite a bit of money, they stole garbage cans, junky and dirty looking plastic cans as well as nice clean ones, doesn't matter. This AM I put out a white container, (formerly held kitty litter), which I use for recyclables, within one half hour it was gone. At least they took the plastic and cans also. I will have to just use plastic bags I guess, but still need something to put under the sink and store the things until pick up day. Frustrated 633732

We use containers under the sink and line them with plastic bags.

I line my container under the sink with a big plastic bag and then put the garbage out in the sack, without the container. If you put out a plastic sack within an hour of when the garbage men come, I'd think the dogs would not have time to get to your garbage.

I have a convenient tree in the street right outside my front door. I hang the plastic bag on an equally convenient broken branch to keep it off the ground, eliminating the animal/rodent problem. I can even put it out at night!!! Works perfectly for me as the trash truck rolls past my house at godawful early.

A bit off subject, I saw a real garbage truck, compactor type, going down the road this morning. Looked brand new. Civilization is coming to MX

Correction. I live in Hooterville. Pedro lives on the highway to the municipal seat. Hence the high-rent trash truck evident on Sundays.

Wow, next there will be cable TV! Snap a pic and post please! Does it have a lift unit for roll containers?

You could have one of those wrought iron raised containers built and cemented in. High enough to keep dogs out, and just put out the trash and recyclables in a bag.

Couple of us on our street just put big nails high up in the nearest utility pole. Unless it's a very tall varmint, nothing goes amok overnight.
