Should I clean out the Toter periodically?

YES! The Toter should be rinsed out regularly to prevent organisms from growing and it will help prevent "trash juice" from accumulating and it will keep the smell down.  Please do not use chemicals to clean the Toter as they will end up in our storm sewer system and harm our local waterways.  A mixture of vinegar and baking soda is recommended if a simple spray out with a garden hose is not enough.
