Bulk-size containers holding oversized bags of snack foods like cookies, pretzels and potato chips are a popular choice when feeding a crowd. In the summer months, many people bring these warehouse-club purchases to outdoor recreational areas. Though parks have receptacles for both trash and recycling, you shouldn’t toss these containers into those bins. If the receptacles are not emptied that night, it’s likely that wild animals will rummage through the bins after dark, and they can get stuck inside the large, warehouse-club-style containers and bags. Bring this kind of trash home to recycle and dispose of it.
