Taking Care of the Trash
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Taking care of the trash sounds like an easy job. But if you aren't careful with it, the trash can cause a lot of problems around your house. It is very important that you don't do certain things with your trash.
 
2     One of the things that you shouldn't do is take a bag of trash outside and just set it down by your house. That bag of garbage is an invitation to wild animals.
 
3     Some of the first animals you will see are mice and rats. Many cities have problems with the animals because people don't take care of their garbage the right way. The garbage is filled with leftover food. This is the kind of thing that rodents just love to eat.
 
4     Another animal that likes to eat garbage is a bear. Bears are more common in the country than in the city. Bears love to eat garbage. Again, the food is very easy to get. If the garbage isn't taken care of the right way, you could have a much bigger problem than little mice and rats.
