So how often should you clean your trash cans and trash bins? Although the frequency of cleaning depends on personal factors, such as the amount of garbage that is thrown away and the types of materials that containers usually contain, most people clean usually once a month. However, depending on your situation, containers may need to be cleaned more often than once a month. Cleaning the trash can may not be the most fun, but it's better to clean it than to suffer the consequences of getting sick or spreading bacteria. You should usually clean the dump once a month, but there's nothing wrong with cleaning it more often, especially if you're someone who throws out a lot of garbage.
However, with everything you do this time of year to cook, wrap (and open) gifts, and clean up after the party, you'll want to have a clean trash can. Adopting a garbage day schedule will allow you to take care of your trash and clean your house when you need it.
