Why Clean My Wheelie Bin?

Did you know that your bin is an excellent breeding ground for bacteria? Think for a moment what you actually deposit into your bin over the course of a fortnight or what residue is left in the bin even after emptying:

  • Food remnants, including meat – raw and cooked
  • Pet waste
  • Soiled nappies
  • Used tissues and other paper products
  • The contents of your vacuum cleaner
  • Non recyclable food packaging – Takeaway Cartons etc
  • Old newspapers and magazines where a recycling scheme is not in operation
  • Garden waste and grass cuttings

The list goes on but along with the smell it may not be very pleasant! (Some of these items may be deposited in recycle bins if available)

Even when these items are bagged up the residue from any leakages can collect at the bottom of your wheelie bin forming the perfect breeding ground for disease-causing  bacteria. Especially after 2 or more weeks.

A dirty wheelie bin can attract vermin, cause offensive odours, become infested with flies and rapidly become a health hazard right outside your home! It is therefore vital that your wheelie bin is kept clean and hygienic!
