Keeping Animals Out of Trash

It just takes one stray dog to create a big mess for you. A bungie cord securing the lid should prevent trash from spilling out if an animal tips it over. As a deterrent, fill a spray bottle with ammonia and spray the outside of the can every few days. The smell of ammonia should encourage the critter to find a nicer smelling garbage can.
