We used to use hundreds but now I have given them up! So what do I keep my rubbish in then? I could use compostable bin liners made out of cornstarch or paper bags but why pay when you don’t have to? And we dont!
We boycott plastic, recycle, and compost – all of which means our kitchen bin is nearly empty. What rubbish we do create is mostly dry, at worst a bit sticky, so it can go straight into our kitchen bin.
The bin has one of those hard removable plastic liners that can be washed out after emptying – which helps if waste is a bit grubby.
We empty our kitchen bin straight into our black bin. You could use a degradable plastic liner in the wheelie bin if you really wanted to – or had to. We don’t need to as, most of our rubbish is dry, and our council is sensible.
End result – we DONT NEED TO USE ANY KIND OF BIN LINERS.
Originally we had a bin with a steel liner but it began to rust and was hard to keep clean. So I changed to plastic. See we don’t hate it (you can follow our plastic we use tag to see the plastic we indulge in).
Dont know which compost bin to buy, only got a tiny apartment, or have no need for humus? Dont worry, you can still compost – try this range of interesting compost bins
