Keeping Your House and Business Clean

I have never been great at keeping things clean, but a few years ago things hit rock bottom. I realized that my home and business were no longer safe places to be, and I knew that I needed help from a professional to make things right. I hired a sanitation team to come in and help me to improve things, and it really paid off. Within a few weeks, my home and business were clean, functional, and incredibly welcoming. Check out this blog for more information about keeping your home and business clean and sanitary so that you can enjoy a happier, healthier life.

Keeping Your Apartment Complex Grounds Clean: Three Helpful Ideas


Keeping your apartment complex grounds neat and orderly is an important part of managing the property. There are several things you can do to keep the outdoor areas clean and to encourage your tenants to help with the upkeep. Here are some ideas you can use as you tend to your complex's needs.

Fence Off the Dumpsters

Roll-off dumpsters offer a great way for all your tenants to dispose of their trash, but unsecured dumpsters can invite people from outside of your complex to dump their unwanted items. Have your contractor build a fence around the area, and include a locked gate that can only be opened by your tenants. This will ensure access to those who need it while keeping unauthorized persons away. Be sure to give your dumpster rental company a copy of the key so the dumpsters can be emptied as needed. You can select from a number of attractive gate styles that hide the dumpster from view, giving your complex a tidy look.

Add Doggy Waste Stations

Keeping dog waste off the complex grounds can be a challenge, particularly if people who don't live in the complex walk their dogs on your property. Consider setting up a few doggy waste stations throughout the complex to encourage pet owners to dispose of waste properly. These stations should consist of a small trash can with a lid along with a dispenser for waste bags. You may want to add signage that indicates what the stations are for and to list any fines for not cleaning up after pets.

Set Up Trash and Recycling Areas

If your complex is large, you'll want to consider adding receptacles for people to dispose of small amounts of trash or recycling, such as containers from fast food restaurants. Work with your dumpster rental company to rent a few receptacles that include space for trash and recyclables, and arrange to have them emptied on the same days as your dumpsters. Add these receptacles to any picnic areas, pools, or other public spaces, and consider placing some near the entrances to each building. This will help to reduce litter and make it easier for your tenants to throw small amounts of trash away without having to go all the way to the dumpster area.

A dumpster rental company like ESP Dumpsters & Waste Services may be able to help you set up all of these arrangements on your apartment complex grounds. Be sure to talk to your tenants about any other ideas they may have to keep the area neat and beautiful.
