Each time you use your bin, check it over for maggots, flies, and smelly odours.
If there are flies and maggots, you’ll need to get rid of them immediately.
Spray the bin with bleach or disinfectant and pour boiling water and bleach over the maggots.
Always tie bin bags tightly at the top before putting them in the wheelie bin, as this will ensure nothing can get in or out.
You should keep the bin fully closed and store it in a shady area in the summer – this will slow down waste decomposition.
Before you put new rubbish in the bin, pour some bicarbonate of soda into the bottom of the bin to absorb the smell.
