Organics Tips

Organics Tips

Odour Control

  • You may use store bought paper liners, or simply use newspaper
  • Freezing meat and bones (or other stinky items) until collection day will help reduce smells

Bug Patrol

  • Keep fruit flies at bay by keeping lids tightly shut, emptying often, and rinsing frequently with vinegar
