Food Waste Bins

It doesn’t matter how efficient you are in the kitchen, there is always going to be some waste to deal with, and it’s not always the most pleasant stuff to deal with. Vegetable peelings and small scraps of food soon start to stink if they’re not disposed of properly.

A lot of folks just throw it straight in the kitchen bin, which can be smelly if it’s left overnight. Some just flush it down the loo (shock, horror!), which isn’t exactly recommended either.

The other option is to invest in a special waste food bin and, although this is yet another expense, you’ll soon appreciate how convenient it is; a lot more eco-friendly too.

There are lots of units that are not only well designed and good looking but they are also small enough to sit on a counter-top – which makes it easy to dispose of food waste as you cook.

Then you can put the lid and forget about it until your next trip to the outside bin or, ideally, your compost heap.
