Keep dumpster lids closed

Waylin Owsley, 14, a U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart Summer Hire employee, takes a moment to close the lid of a dumpster after disposing of a bag of office trash at a recycling island on Panzer Kaserne. Closing dumpster lids helps to prevent rodents from getting into the dumpsters and also keeps crows and other birds from tearing open and scattering waste, according to USAG Stuttgart Directorate of Public Works officials. Community members are encouraged to take the time to close dumpster lids after placing trash in them.
