Do not leave any food waste uncovered within your kitchen as this will attract files, which will lay eggs
Sorting and separating waste from recycling as you use items will help to minimise the risk of flies / maggots
Double bag food waste such as meat and bones. Doing this will reduce decomposition and smells, and slow the growth of any fly eggs already laid.
If you need to dispose of pet waste or nappies, ensure that these items are double bagged
Composting, for those with gardens, is also a good way of reducing food waste
Only place waste and recycling out in the bins / sacks & boxes provided as no other receptacles will be taken
Keep your bins out of direct sunlight wherever possible and wash on a regular basis; ensuring that your bin is fully empty after each collection and kept clean will help to minimise any potential problem.
If there is any evidence of maggots please wash your bin with a lightly scented disinfectant straight away
