Eliminate Odor – With all of the rotting food, disposable diapers and other malodorous items we throw into our bins, it is no wonder that we stifle the urge to plug our noses every time we take out the trash. Waste, liquids in particular, can leak through even the smallest of tears in a bin liner and seep into the pores of the bin. This can make your wheelie bin smell even when it is empty. Cleaning your wheelie bin regularly can help reduce odor.
Eliminate Germs –Throwing away old food and used diapers can infect your wheelie bin with germs and diseases such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E-Coli. Sanitizing your wheelie bin will kill these germs and help keep you and your family safe.
Get Rid of Maggots – Have you ever noticed how flies are attracted to your trash? According to the Washington State Department of Ecology flies are attracted to odors and lay their eggs in moist organic material. While having flies buzzing around your head can be irritating it’s even worse to find maggots crawling through your rubbish.
Keep Wheelie Bin Looking Nice (Curb Appeal) – When your wheelie bins look nice and clean it’s not as much of a chore to take the trash out. You don’t have to worry about accidentally smudging your clothes or encountering unwanted smells or creatures. It also gives your house and property a sense of curb appeal.
