There are very few things quite as frustrating as the presence of used chewing gum being left on your premises. Unfortunately, it’s an all too common occurrence for many businesses in a number of sectors. Unlike with most food waste, where consumers simply use a bin to dispose of their used or unwanted items, people who chew gum are prone to dispose of their chewing gum in a variety of inconsiderate ways, such as throwing it on the floor where it can be stood on, or even sticking it in hidden areas such as underneath a table or on handrails.
As you can imagine, the presence of used gum is not just unprofessional and unsanitary, it’s incredibly unhygienic too. The bacteria found on the used gum could easily lead to the transmission of viral illnesses that could impact anyone who works on your company premises, so removing any used gum should always be a high priority.
