Is Your Christmas Trash Advertising To Thieves?
It was an early start this morning, off to restock a flyer box in a condo community. Driving around it became pretty apparent that Santa had been VERY good to the residents!
Let's see, Big Screen TV......Big Screen TV....Big Screen TV....video game system....video game system. Home after home seemed to have NOT been on Santa's Naughty list!
And how could we tell? The residents were basically advertising their Christmas haul! Since today was the first scheduled post-Christmas trash day, the residents had all the evidence we needed right out at the curb!
Now we'd LIKE to think that no one should ever have to worry about their home being burglarized, but during these tough economic times a little theft has become more common. And if you've made it apparent to us, don't you think a burglar could be potentially cruising a community eyeballing what Santa left for YOU that he just might enjoy?
And it's an easy thing to avoid! Break down those tell-tale boxes and stuff them INSIDE the garbage can, or break down the boxes and put them inside one of those dark, LARGE garbage bags. Remove the visual evidence and the likelihood of that burglar picking YOUR home over someone else's home just went way down.
We hope you find this tip helpful, and we'd recommend using this process ANY time of year when you've purchased something that just might be appealing to an unsavory element.
