How can I keep my trash can lids from disappearing?

Secure Garbage Can Lids

One of the problems restaurant owners face is keeing garbage can lids from getting separated after trash pick-up, or even stolen outright. Here are a few tips to keep your lids secure:

  • Drill a hole in the lid and close to the top of the can. Chain together through the holes.
  • Purchase garbage cans with attached lids.
  • Collect cans and lids as soon after pick up as possible.
Also, paint numbers on the cans and the lids. Keep them paired at all times.
