English term or phrase: blowing trash
Hola colegas estoy traduciendo algunos requisitos de gestión de residuos para obras en construcción y tengo este término. El contexto es el siguiente:

Creating clear storage areas and labeling areas and containers helps maintain a clean project. All containers and storage areas should be labeled. The site should be free of **blowing trash**. If a project site looks organized and cared for, the message to people who pass by will be that the company cares about the community and environment.

No sé si se refiere a basura/desechos que pueden volarse con la acción del viento o que pueden estallar.
