How to Stop Your Wheelie Bin From Smelling

We don’t really care about our wheelie bins, after all, we just fill them with waste. But they can start to get smelly and nobody wants that. Of course they are going to get smelly and if your bin is kept right next to your home, you definitely don’t want to be able to smell your bin every time you leave the house.

In this post we will be sharing info on how you can stop your bin from emitting foul odors.

Flip Your Lid

This is a really simple solution. Leave the lid off your bin for a few days or even just a few hours here and there. Keeping the lid closed on your bin traps stale air, when there is air trapped in the bin it causes bacteria to grow and it’s the growth of that bacteria that causes bad odors.

It is best to do this exercise in the summer as there is a smaller chance of rain. Rain can cause the air to become humid, which is the perfect environment for bacteria to multiply and grow.

TOP TIP: Check the weather forecast and pick a time to air out your wheelie bin when the weather is going to be nice for at least a day or two.
