Will the compost bin smell?

There are many ways to prevent odour in your compost bin.  

  • Our collections take place weekly during the warmest months, to minimize the duration the waste sits in the bin.
  • Put newspaper, paper or leaves at the bottom of the bin to absorb excess moisture.  Don’t put liquids in the bin.
  • Wrap your stinky scraps like meat, fish or bones in newspaper or store in the freezer until close to collection day. 
  • Clean your bin regularly to help it stay fresh.  
  • The bins we provide come with a lid that helps contain any odour.
