Rather than letting kitchen and household rubbish bins pile up into a groaning, side-splitting mess, empty your kitchen tidy and recycling bin often. This is a great job for children learning to contribute to housekeeping if you make it fun. A quick wipe down of the inside of your bin and frame each time you do so will keep things clean and hygienic. Place small bins into each room in your home – bedrooms, bathrooms and home office to ensure litter doesn’t collect.
Green tip: To aid in the breakdown of household waste, don’t tie your waste bags when you dispose of them – simply use the tabs to carry them to your wheelie bin and allow for the waste to tumble out into the garbage truck and, in turn the dump. Better still, don’t use bags at all to line your bin.
