What is the best way to dispose of the fly trap without nasty liquid & flies spilling?

I like the way liquid traps get the flies but have always been at a loss as to how best to dispose of them where we won't have "stinky juice" all over everything in trash can etc. Putting in plastic bags helps a little but they often leak as well.There was a trap, which I can't find any longer, that had a top that would screw/snap back down to seal the bag and its contents. Advice would be appreciated !

Answer:

The manufacturer says to just place the trap in a plastic bag and dispose of it in the trash can.  We agree with you that depending on the bag you place it in, leaking is a possibility.  Most of us at the office use this product at our own homes.  We place the trap in a gallon size Ziploc bag and then place that in a grocery plastic bag and dispose of the trap in the trash.
