Wheelie Bin Cleaning 🗑️: Mr Waster stayed at a lovely hotel on the Queensland coast for the summer holidays a couple of years ago. He (or me, actually) found it lovely and appreciated its closeness to the beach. The only problem about the stay was that the bins at the hotels really smelled bad!

In the tropical heat, the smell from the bins was pretty off-putting. I found it off-putting even though the hotel staff attempted to wash the bins out and collect the different types of waste there often, as well. It is weird the things Mr Waster pays attention to!

We have covered in other blogs how in warmer climates, you may require your bin to be collected more frequently. This is definitely the case for organic food waste bins.

We have covered some of the basic details about bins in recent posts such as info on wheelie bin sizes and the right size for your business. Also, we have talked about the difference between skip bins and normal bins (called dumpsters by our North American friends). In this blog, we will share how you should do your wheelie bin cleaning. You can get access to free downloadable garbage bin stickers here.


Wheelie bin cleaning: why it can be vital

We use the term wheelie bin in this cleaning tutorial blog (or in all our blogs), but we are referring generically to any commercial bin from a small wheelie bin like a 120 litre up to a 4.5m bin. See our online shop for a full listing of bin sizes, locations available and pricing.

Tips for keeping a bin smelling fresh: well, as fresh as possible!

We detail below a number of tips that could help you reduce the need for bin washing services. We are not going to pretend that the garbage bin will ever smell of roses (unless you work in the rose-growing industry). But we can guarantee you that after doing these, you will see an improvement in your wheelie bin cleaning practices. After all, as the doctor says – prevention is better than cure.

A. Bag general waste before disposing of it in the bin, keeping odours locked away to some extent.

B. Close the lid whenever possible.

C. Make sure to close the lid on rainy days as rain will slosh around in the bin.

D. Prevent contamination of your recycling bins. In other words, keep your paper and cardboard bins clean by putting some care into the source segregation, ensuring general waste goes into the general waste bin, etc.

E. Keep bins out of direct sunlight, especially during the summer months. Potentially, you could have a shaded area or indoor storage area for the bins.

F. Keeping bins closed can also help prevent fruit fly infestations in tropical areas.

G. Organise more regular collections, potentially a smaller bin that goes more often each week may be a better plan for your business. The less time waste is sitting around, the better.
