Today, I discovered that my freezer had died when I saw the contents oozing out the bottom. The now-full trash can won't be picked up for another 6 days, and the high temperatures are supposed to be in the 100s all week. FML

I honestly don't see why people deserve this I mean what did OP do wrong he has it bad already.

Oh my gosh, that sucks! I'm sorry. I had a freezer/fridge die while I was on vacation once. Came back after 8 days away...I know the feels. Baking soda and vinegar to scrub the rotten fridge out!

Your neighborhood is going to be smelling for daysssssss

What he/she did wrong was they had to have left the freezer unchecked for days at a time. A Freezer, even in 100+ degree temps, will hold the cold for a few days before things start to melt and ooze out like that. OPs negligence is why they deserve it.

It's been two hours. How far away is this freezer?

#15, are you perhaps thinking of an ice chest rather than a powered freezer?

Did you try turning it off and turning it on again?

Lol! Thank you, Apple Genius Bar!

That joke is as dead as the OP's freezer.

I'd recommend loading it into your car or whatever and taking it to the dump yourself. You'll be dealing with animals, flies, maggots, and the smell otherwise. Not to mention if you live near any neighbors they could get upset about the smell and it could cause some friction between you. Alternatively, many trash companies are willing to come by the house and grab trash earlier if you are willing to pay for it.

Loading it in a car? A truck bed, maybe. But, a car?! If it leaks then you have a rotten smelling car.

Double bag it, pour bleach over the bags, then use a bungee cord to keep the lid on and dissuade animals. That's what I used to do in these instances and I never had a problem.

well at least you arent a serial killer, dead people smell bad when they thaw out. or so im told...

You might be able to get your waste disposal company to make an exception- trying calling and asking. It may be more of a small city thing, but it won't hurt to ask.

After this is all over, baking soda and vinegar are your friends. Trust me. That trash can will never be the same. I'd also just leave the can at the end of your driveway for the time being. Pretend it doesn't exist for a week. Be strong!

YDI because the FYL number is currently at 666 and it's really freaking me out

Did anybody ever tell you how much of an idiot you are?

it was a joke. I don't actually think he deserves it. In all seriousness when i did write this the fyl counter really was at 666. Did anyone ever tell you to stop taking the world so seriously?

probably because usually only bible thumpers believe in that sort of hocus pocus not saying you are a bible thumper, but that's the impression i got

You could try for the more smellier items putting them in an old container or garbage bag with maybe sawdust or some other absorbent material dosed with pine oil or baking soda or something else to mask the smell.
