Why clean bins?

There are many good reasons why a bin should be cleaned and kept clean.

These are just some of the 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.
  • Rotting food and residue 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.
