This results in filthy build up sticking to the sides of the garbage chute and the compactor below. This build up harbors dangerous bacteria detrimental to personal health. Scientists would probably have a hard time of working out the combination of bacteria! Some garbage chutes go for years without being cleaned, imagine what harmful and dangerous nasty germs are waiting to escape each time a chute door opens.
