With bin collections in some regions happening only once a fortnight*, it’s no surprise that almost 35 per cent of people have had a row with the people next door due to overflowing, smelly or bug-infested rubbish.
Almost 27 per cent of people surveyed claimed to be fed up with the bad smells caused by rubbish. However there is help at hand with Bin Buddy, the nation’s first-ever answer to tackling the excessive number of foul smelling wheelie and dustbins that line our gardens and streets.
Jo Gosden, Bin Buddy spokeswoman says: ‘We were worried to hear that neighbours were arguing over the state of their bins; many people might not realise the impact an overstuffed, stinky bin can have on their community. We’re happy to be able to offer an affordable and effective solution in the UK for the first time with the development of Bin Buddy.’
Bin Buddy is the first consumer household product available to buy in supermarkets and independent hardware stores that promises to rid your rubbish of unpleasant odours and kill and repel insects such as flies, maggots, wasps, ants, cockroaches, mosquitoes and more between collection days.
The innovative Bin Buddy range offers homes up and down the country with the fun and friendly solution they have been waiting for. The dual function neutralises odours leaving behind a lasting freshness, while the natural insecticide kills and repels flies, maggots, wasps, ants, cockroaches, mosquitoes and more without harming pets or the environment.
This ‘first of its kind’ product formulation comes in zingy Citrus and fruity Berry Blast fragrances and is proven to be more effective than using regular cleaning products. Simply sprinkle the fragrant powder into your wheelie bin or dustbin each time you dispose of your rubbish to make this household chore a far more pleasant experience.
Each cute and colourful ‘mini-bin’ pack contains up to 15 applications and can be used inside or sprinkled on top of your bin bags. The natural insecticide in the product has been especially designed to break down in direct sunlight, making it kinder to the environment.
Bin Buddy is available in two variants, Citrus and Berry Blast Recommended Retail Price (RRP): £4.99.
