Landscape (UK) - - In The Kitchen -

Keep­ing the kitchen com­post bin odour free be­comes in­creas­ingly im­por­tant in the warmer months. Us­ing a pail made from metal tends to re­pel odour most ef­fec­tively, and a tightly fit­ting lid, lined with news­pa­per, helps keep any bad smells con­tained. Lin­ing the base of the tub also helps to ab­sorb mois­ture, and bad smells de­com­pose quickly in the gar­den. Emp­ty­ing the tin ev­ery cou­ple of days and clean­ing it thor­oughly helps to re­duce the build-up of bac­te­ria. On very warm days, scraps can be stored in a bag in the freezer.
