Summer is coming so keep those bins under control with these top tips :-)

Industrial Bin Cleaning

Keep your bin lids closed at all times. This prevents flies from laying their eggs in your waste. It also stops smells spreading.

If your bin is broken, vermin will get in and out of the smallest crack making your wheelie bins a living nightmare! Contact local council to arrange a replacement.  

Store your outside bins in a well-ventilated, shady and convenient location. Keeping your bins out of direct sunlight will help slow general decomposition, reduce smells and stop or slow the development of maggots.  

Keep your bins clean contacting Perth’s Premier Bin cleaner Super Clean Bins!!! We will ensure complete cleanliness by cleaning up any spillages on the outside or lip of your bin. These spillages could attract flies and vermin.  

After your wheelie bins have been emptied we will use high pressure state of the art bin cleaning machine to get your bins not just clean but super clean!!!

For those with time keep in mind water restrictions. Use a trigger nozzle hose and wash bins on the grass. Strong detergents or bleach should not be put into stormwater drains. Bins should be washed out on grass areas. 

Do not overfill your bins. If you need extra bin capacity, contact Council for alternate service options and costs. For example, you can order an additional green or yellow bin for a fee.

Bin Styles change from council to council-most such as stirling  council are moving to:
Red Bins – General Waste 

By sorting your waste properly you could potentially reduce your red bin rubbish by more than half. A recent waste audit found that 40% of rubbish found in red bins should be put in green bins, and a further 18% should be put in yellow bins.  

Bag or wrap your general rubbish before putting it in the red bin. Old plastic shopping bags can be used to tie up your rubbish if you do not have black bags or bin liners.  

Pet waste can be buried in your garden. If you decide to throw it away, bag or double-bag it securely to prevent smells and flies. 

Empty the contents of soiled nappies into the toilet before placing them in the bin. Tightly roll into a bundle to enclose contents and use the sticky tabs to close securely.  

Wrap, bag or double-bag nappies and sanitary items to reduce smells. There are products available such as odour neutralising nappy bags and bin deodorisers that can help.  

Consider using washable cloth nappies to reduce waste.

Yellow Bins – Recycling 

Rinse recyclable food packaging, bottles and cans to remove any excess food residue and allow them to drain thoroughly before putting them in the recycling bin.   Put newspaper in the bin first to help absorb any moisture and keep the bin clean.

3   Green Bins – Food and Garden Waste
Put ALL food waste in your green food and garden waste bin which is collected weekly.  

Put your green bin out for collection every week even if it is not full. 

Keep your green bin as dry as possible. Line with newspaper, cardboard or lawn clippings before adding food scraps to soak up any moisture and prevent any loose food waste from sticking to the bottom of the bin.  

Alternate food scraps with a layer of leaves or lawn clippings to reduce odours and prevent flies form accessing food waste.    Allow grass clippings to dry before placing them in the bin. Cut down oversized garden waste to ensure the lid of the bin can always be closed.
Preventing Pests  

If a fly settles on your food waste it may lay eggs. Maggots only exist if flies have been allowed to have access to your rubbish.  

A fly is more likely to lay eggs in your waste BEFORE it is placed in the bin.  Therefore, it is important to keep your waste covered and place it in the bin as soon as possible.   

Do not leave food waste exposed in the kitchen where it could attract flies. 

Do not leave pet food out uncovered. 

Ensure pet excrement is removed from your yard regularly and buried or placed in the red bin. Remember to bag or double-bag pet waste. Fly eggs may be laid in pet excrement before it is placed in the bin. 

Gently squeeze the air out of compostable bags before placing them in the green bin and from plastic bags before placing in red bin. The lack of air can help slow the development of maggots. 

Pay attention to tell-tale signs of vermin such as cockroaches or mice and take appropriate steps to ensure effective pest control in bin areas.  

If you do have an incident of maggots, most will go when your bin is emptied, however it is also a good idea to clean and disinfect your bin once it has been emptied to kill eggs. Maggots and fly eggs can be killed with boiling water.  

Eliminate maggots by putting salt or vinegar on them. There are products available for this purpose. Always read the label and use as directed. 

Consider hanging insecticidal strips, available from hardware stores, inside your bin, or use fly spray or crawling insect powder. Fly spray will kill flies, but not work on maggots. 

Spray the rim of the bins with insect surface spray. 

Capture fruit flies with a bowl of apple cider vinegar covered with plastic wrap, with several small holes in the plastic. 

Although maggots are unpleasant, they are not a health hazard.

So lots of tips for Perth’s bins this Spring and Summer, remember if you need them Super Clean you who to contact 🙂

Smelly Bins Perth

Flies use it as an incubator.

The raccoons keep it cleaner than you do.

The perpetual slime at the bottom is advancing up the sides.

Your kids want to use it for their next science project.

The fuzzy looking growth at the bottom really is mold.

No way would you go dumpster diving looking for any lost item including your keys, wallet or cell phone.

You hold your breath and look away every time you open the lid.

Your neighbors can smell them from their front door.

You’ve emptied an entire can of air freshener into it and it still stinks.

You use a designated “Hazmat” outfit for taking out the trash.

You can barely get a trash can to the curbside because you can’t hold your breath that long.

By the time you get it to the curb, the ants are crawling up your arms.

Just going near them requires a long hot shower.

Your neighbor calls us and requests we leave our marketing flyer on your door.

TIPS FOR FRESHER BINS
Inside Your Home – Use Your Free Kitchen Bin for Food Waste  Remember that all food waste should be placed in the green bin which is collected weekly. Use the free kitchen bin (pictured) that will be delivered to you in July or August to make this easier.  Sort and separate food waste, recyclables and general waste at the source. As well as using your free kitchen bin for food scraps, consider having two small bins – one for recyclables and one for general waste.   Keep the lids on all your bins tightly closed, especially the kitchen food waste bin. This prevents flies and pests getting into your waste and laying eggs.   Keep all food covered and put scraps in the kitchen food waste bin straight away. Leaving food waste exposed allows flies to lay eggs.   Use the compostable bags provided or wrap your food waste in newspaper.    Double-wrap meat, bones and unwanted pet food as this will help reduce the smell and stop flies.   Place left-over meat, prawn shells and similar food scraps in the freezer until collection day.   Drain or wash excess liquids from food scraps before putting them in your kitchen bin. Line your food waste bin with paper towel to soak up wet residues.  Keep your kitchen food waste bin out of direct sunlight, preferably in a cupboard to prevent flies.  Empty your kitchen food waste bin frequently, either every day or every second day.   Wipe up spills inside your kitchen bin and wash or disinfect regularly both inside and out.  You can continue to compost at home. Council’s food and garden waste green bin can take many things you can’t compost at home such as citrus, bread, bones, seafood, chicken and meat.   Wash hands and work surfaces after contact with waste.  Rinse all food packaging (recyclable and non-recyclable) before putting it in the yellow and red bins. Rinsing yoghurt pots, meat trays and other packaging will help reduce smells.  Keep clean and tidy. Good hygiene in the home is the best was to prevent the spread of disease.  Try not to buy, prepare or throw away more food than you need to. Plan your food menus and use your leftovers – there are many internet sites that can show you how.   Visit www.lovefoodhatewaste.nsw.gov.au for tips on how to cut down your food wastage, save money and reduce your impact on the environment.

Cleaning the kitchen bin cleaner is a household to-do that’s easily overlooked, but things get gross in there fast. Perth don’t be surprised by how many cracker bits and unknown liquids had made their way past the inner liner of our wheelie bin (toddlers, anyone?). A lingering smell is an obvious sign that it’s time to clean the bin, so grab your gloves and get to work!

A few easy steps are all that’s required for a clean, fresh-smelling can.

For deep-clean lovers (guilty) and over-achievers, it is an oddly satisfying thing to know that something meant to be dirty can actually be clean. After you’ve followed these steps and given your trash can a thorough cleaning, maintain your hard work by wiping down the inside and outside of the can with a disinfectant spray each time you empty the trash can. Beware: If you don’t live alone, this request could invite an eye roll from your roommate or spouse.

Now, let’s get to cleaning!

What You Need

Rubber gloves
A hose (if you have outdoor space) or a bathtub
A clean toilet brush or other long-handled, nylon bristle scrub brush

A disinfectant spray of your choice
Paper towels or old towel

Instructions

  1. Safety First! Pu on your rubber gloves: Cleaning any bin can be a nasty business, so pull on some rubber gloves!
  2. Empty bin into domestic wheelie bin and remove any lingering food particles: After you’ve emptied your bin, remove any large pieces of food or particles you see in the bottom of the can. Your goal here is just to get rid of any major gunk you can see outright.
  3. Wash out the bin: If you have access to a hose, take your bin outside and hose it down. If you don’t have outdoor space, you can also do this in your bathtub. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  4. Spray the can with a disinfectant: Using a disinfectant cleaner of your choice, liberally spray down the inside and outside of the bin. Don’t forget the top and bottom of the bin.
  5. Scrub the bin: Take a clean toilet brush or other long-handled nylon bristle brush and scrub the can thoroughly. After scrubbing, let the cleaner sit for 5 minutes.
  6. Rinse and dry: Rinse the can thoroughly with your hose or in the bathtub. Dry with a towel, or let air dry in the sun. Perth’s ridiculously high UV rating means any bacteria/viruses missed by the sanitizer will be destroyed quickly.

My garbage bin is amazing! It smells awesome. I honestly thought it was beyond all help – worst smell in the world – and that you guys were going to hate me for asking you to clean such a bad bin! But it’s so clean inside & spider free too! Thank you!…Michelle @ Merriwa August 2015

Top Tips for keeping Perth Rubbish Bins Clean

commercial bin cleaning

Safety is a top priority for Super Clean Bins and is a shared responsibility that starts right at your Wheelie Bin or Commercial Bin. A properly filled, maintained and serviced garbage bin is crucial in keeping our customers and our employees free from harm. To that end, we would like to share with you some best practices in proper waste disposal to help you maintain a waste area that is functional and safe for both you and our wheelie bin cleaners.

These tips provide a few helpful suggestions on proper waste disposal such as: reducing container odor, keeping your waste area clean, and disposing of bulky items.

Loading Container: When loading your container, please ensure that your container lid can fully close.  If your rubbish is unable to fit in the wheelie bin with the lid fully closed, most of Perth’s Council’s are not obliged to empty it.  Keep in mind that if your trash volumes do change, you can adjust your service by increasing your wheelie bin size up to 360litre or collection frequency (use of private company).  Remember, a quick service adjustment will allow you to keep up with your growing demands as well as help you avoid additional fees caused by container overflow or spilled rubbish in the waste area.

Reduce Odor:  To help reduce odor around your waste area, remember to tightly bag your domestic rubbish before placing it in your wheelie bin.  This will help to reduce bacteria build up and odor caused by spilled garbage.  This simple solution keeps Perth noticeably nicer in the hotter months!

Keep it clean:  Super Clean Bins is Perths Premier Wheelie Bin Cleaner so with regular cleaning of your container and the waste area surrounding the container will help to keep the waste area clean for easy access, reduce odor and minimize insects.

Cleaning your garage or shed:  When cleaning out your garage or shed, please keep in mind that the following items are not apart of your normal waste collection pick up and should not be placed in your container: paint, paint thinners,oil, oil filters, oil rags and insecticides.

In addition, the following items require special handling and may not be placed in your waste or recycling containers:

  • Appliances, batteries, chemical products, construction debris, electronics, flammables, hazardous waste, pesticides, liquids and  tyres.

If you need to dispose of paint, oil, oil filters or insecticides or any items that require special handling, please contact your local council for up to the minute guidance on what needs to be done.

Bulky items:  Do you have bulky items that you need to dispose of?  If so, please keep in mind that bulky items can not be placed in your container and require special handling.  Check on your local Perth Council website for date of your suburbs Bulk Collection.

Recycling tips:  Store your Wheelie Bins in the garage or outside preferably in a shaded area.  Where possible, place your garbage bin on one side of your driveway and place your recycling on the opposite side.  A minimum gap of a metre with no overhead obstructions is needed to help the garbage truck operators work safely.

Construction and Renovation Materials:  Are you renovating or building a new home or building?  If so, please keep in mind that construction and renovation materials such as shingles, tiles, insulation, brick, large amounts of wood require special handling.

Safety Tips for your waste area:  To ensure the safety of all, please maintain clear and safe access to your container.  In addition, place your container in an open or well-lit area and ensure that the overhead clearance is a minimum of 14 feet in height.

How to avoid delays in service:To prevent delays in your waste collection service, please ensure vehicles are not parked in front or on the side of your container.  In addition, make sure gates or access to your containers are unlocked for service.
