As most of us know, food waste should go in your green organics bin, but we also know that these can become stinky over summer.
Try these tips to minimise food scrap odours in your Mini Muncher kitchen caddy and green-lid organics bin over:
Wrap seafood shells or meat scraps in newspaper and then double bag using compostable bags before placing in your organics bin
Keep your green organics bin out of direct sunlight as heat speeds up decay and odours
Keep your Mini Muncher and organics bin lids closed
Regularly change over the compostable bags in your Mini Muncher
Sprinkle bicarbonate soda in the bottom of your Mini Muncher to soak up any liquids
Wash your green organics bin every three to six months and wash your Mini Muncher at least once a week
Store food scraps in your freezer until bin collection day if you have the space.
