Bin hygiene

Health, hygiene and smells

Tips on avoiding smells:

  • Recycle food waste weekly in your caddy (you can line your caddy with a plastic bag)
  • Rinse out plastic bottles and tins before putting them in your recycling bin.
  • Put your loose refuse in carrier bags and double bag nappies (consider using washable nappies).
  • Don't leave food exposed in the kitchen where flies can make contact.
  • Keep the lids of the wheelie bins and the food waste caddies closed at all times.
  • Wash the bins and caddies after they are emptied.

How can I get my bin cleaned?

This is not a service we provide, however there are a number of commercial companies who can provide this service.
