The enclosed design eradicates many animal-related issues. Seagulls and other birds are not extracting trash and rodents of all kinds — from squirrels to rats — are barred access from the containers, which has in some cases reduced their overall population in areas where the solution has been deployed. Even bears are unable to access the waste contents due to the unique hopper design.
Even bees and other insects are denied access, keeping them from building nests and stinging visitors and citizens.
