Surrender To Waste War
Monday, 02 August 2010
DESPITE today's announcement by environment secretary, Caroline Spelman to review fortnightly bin collections, problems are set to continue due to lifecycles of pests attracted to bad odours.
The waste review includes a proposal to reduce the number of wheelie bins and recycling containers, however, help is still at hand whatever the outcome. Bin Buddy is a brand new household product that was designed specifically to repel and kill pests including flies, wasps, cockroaches, ants and maggots. The powder application also leaves behind a lasting fragrance to prevent repeat visits and resulting problems.
Jo Gosden from Bin Buddy says: 'It can take as little as 24 hours for a fly egg to become a maggot, so whether bin collections become weekly or fortnightly household rubbish is still the perfect environment for these pests to breed. Bin Buddy has been through rigorous tests and the result is a product that repels and kills pests, whilst also tackling the main problem - bad odours.
'We would like to encourage households to tackle the problem head on to make the war against waste management less of a battle against pests and bad odours and more about reducing waste in line with the environment secretary's recommendations.'
Bin Buddy is available in two variants, Citrus and Berry Blast
