  1. Put down four strips of liner on the floor or a tarp. This will protect the customer’s carpet from possible leakage. Note: Try not to do this in a carpeted area
  2. Position the brute in front of the liners on the floor. Make sure the full liner is tied off.
  3. Lay the brute down on the liner.

  4. Bend at the knees and pull the full liner out.
  5. Keep liner underneath the trash until trash is removed.
