To clean your kitchen pail, rinse it with hot water or place it inside your dishwasher.
You can mix one-part vinegar and three-parts boiling water as this helps clean the surface and removes the fly-attracting odours. In addition, you should ensure that your green cart remains fully closed at all times.
To reduce odours, we recommend you store your cart in a shady spot, out of direct sunlight.
To ensure food waste does not become lodged or frozen to the base of the cart, you can place crumpled up newspaper at the base of your green cart.
If your carts need cleaning you may rinse your cart with a hose and pour the water on the grass or gravel, being careful that the dirty water does not enter the storm drain. If material gets stuck inside the cart, you may use a broom or shovel handle to loosen it. To clean your kitchen pail, rinse it with hot water or place it inside your dishwasher.
