Mint X Corporation Secures GSA – Will Market to National Park Service
TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — GSA Application Services is pleased to announce that Mint X Corporation has been awarded a GSA Schedule 81 IB contract and are now certified to provide goods & services to the Federal Government. Acknowledging the growth in federal spending through the General Services Administration (GSA), Mint X Corporation has listed the world’s only EPA approved Rodent Repellent Trash Bag on the government’s electronic online ordering system, GSA Advantage!®.
“This GSA schedule will expand our reach beyond the federal government to numerous state and municipal governments and other public entities as they will be able to take advantage of our revolutionary trash bags at set government pricing,” stated Joseph Dussich, Inventor & CEO of Mint X Corporation. He continues, “We’re looking forward to working with agencies such as the National Park Service and supplying these unique trash bags to help them strengthen their pest management efforts and maintain sanitary conditions within their properties.”
Mint has long been a home remedy for keeping rodents out of gardens. Mint-X uses the scent of mint in its trash bags to act as a repellent. The mint-scent wards off foraging rodents and masks the odor of garbage. The US EPA has classified the Mint-X Trash Bag as a “Biopesticide,” under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). Mint-X Trash Bags have proven to be effective in a laboratory environment as well as the “live” environments of thousands of properties around the US. In addition to GSA Advantage, Mint-X Trash Bags are available at select Home Depot and Costco Wholesale stores.
About Mint X Corporation:
As a leader in the plastic bag manufacturing and building supply business for over 50 years, Joseph “Dee” Dussich felt compelled to respond to his clients’ pleas for a solution to the overwhelming rodent infestation facing building owners, housing authorities, food service providers and municipalities in every major city in America. Plastic bags, torn open by animals, lead to an unsightly mess and more work for maintenance staff. After years of research and testing, Mr. Dussich and his three sons developed a sustainable, low-cost solution – a trash bag that repels rats and rodents, but remains perfectly safe for human handling. The Mint-X trash bag eliminates the human food source option and forces rats and rodents to find alternate food sources, making pest management tools and techniques much more effective.
