Reducing bin smells

Smells come from rotting rubbish. If possible:

  • separate food waste in to your caddy so it is collected weekly or in a food digester
  • store your wheelie bin out of direct sunlight
  • keep the lid closed at all times
  • wash inside your bin with disinfectant or bleach regularly to keep it fresh
  • put solids from disposable nappies down the toilet and then double bag (try using real cloth nappies)
  • hang insecticide strips inside your bin to help control flies should they get in
  • squeeze air out of bags before placing them in your bin to slow the decomposing process

If you do get maggots, once the bin has been emptied, pour boiling water over flies and maggots to kill them and leave water in the bin to cool before tipping it out. Clean the bin out with disinfectant or bleach as this will help to deter flies in the future.
