Why clean bins?

There are many very good reasons why wheelie bins should be cleaned, and kept clean.

These are just some of the very good reasons to do it...

  • Puerile odours can cause offense to not only you but also your neighbours and visitors.

  • Smells attract flies and other insects, causing pest infestation to the area.

  • Attracts dogs, cats, birds and rodents searching for food which creates a mess and encourages them to stay.

  • Harbours dangerous bacteria and viruses that cause disease to be spread from the bin.

  • Makes your visits to the bin an unhealthy & unpleasant task.

  • Discarded chemicals cause dangerous contamination of the bin from the toxic residues.

  • Chemical contamination accelerates ageing of the bin’s plastic, causing it to become brittle and break.
