When building residents discard of their garbage into the garbage chute and down into the garbage room, bags have a tendency to open or rip. Any wet garbage will stick to the walls and compactor and dry garbage will stick to the wet garbage.
Garbage Chutes have an occurring up draft. This causes unhealthy odors and bacteria from inside the chute walls and become airborne. These airborne odors then enter public areas as residents open the chute doors and dispose of their garbage.
