Problem: Spread of germs and sickness from contact with used tissues, bandages, diapers, and other trash.
- Use a covered, lined trash container.
- You can also use a hands-free, lined container (e.g. step-can). Do not use any open-top container as it will draw flies, rodents and other vermin.
- Empty the trash daily or more frequently if needed.
- For soiled diapers, use a foot-pedal operated container that is lined with a plastic trash bag.
