    Handle the can with gloves if it bothers you, and after the trash collectors empty it tomorrow, spray it out with a hose and disinfect with some diluted bleach or a disinfectant cleaner such as Lysol.

    Tie up the bag and get rid of it as soon as you can. In this heat maggots are inevitable if you leave rotting organic matter outside. Maggots are pretty gross! Wear gloves if it makes you feel better and wash your hands when you're done.
