Not everyone gets litter in it's place. Keeping your grounds clean is often more work than it seems. It can be time-consuming and exhausting to manually pick up all of the litter that people may drop onto the property or that may blow into your space. Reachers and grabbers provide you and your staff members with a faster, easier way to keep your property in great condition. They eliminate the need to reach down or bend your knees each time you need to pick up a piece of trash, saving you time, energy and effort.

Different Types of Reachers and Grabbers
There are a variety of reachers and grabbers that can be used for different purposes. Tongs, for example, can be used to pick up larger or heavier items. There are also heavy-duty grabbers, which are ideal for high-use situations. If you or your staff members regularly have large pick-up jobs, such as if you have a large estate or yard that needs to be cleaned on a regular basis, the heavy-duty grabbers will hold up well to the intense, repetitive motion.

How Reachers and Grabbers Are Used Outdoors
Out door reachers and grabbers generally are used to pick debris up off the ground and to place it in a receptable or trash can with use. They can save you time by eliminating the need to bend down. Some of these devices are used to hold a trash bag open, and this can also save time and reduce the hassle of opening and closing a bag. In some cases, trash and debris may be higher up, such as in tree branches or on roofs, and the reachers and grabbers give you the extended reach you need to access those items without jumping or getting a ladder. Some people will purchase these in bulk and will organize large litter pick-up campaigns as volunteer or service projects.

When You Make Your Purchase
If you are ready to make a purchase, consider the type of waste that you or your team will likely be picking up most frequently. Also, consider where the trash or debris will be and how far away from arm's reach the debris will be. Another factor to think about is how heavy-duty the equipment is. The highest-quality grabbers and reachers may come with a warranty, but it can still be a hassle to replace a product that is under warranty. A better idea is to select a product that is designed to hold up well to the intensity or frequency of use that you plan to put it through.

Reachers and grabbers can make it easier and faster for you to clean up your property. While they are often used outdoors, they also can be used in indoor environments. For example, they can make it easier to clean an auditorium or stadium after a big event. If you are looking for a way to take the time and effort out of cleaning your property, take time to learn more about the different types of out door reachers and grabbers available on the market today.
