Bad smell

SIR, — I have just received the green bin recycling leaflet. On reading it I find that we are supposed to put kitchen waste in, including unwanted food. I wonder whether the powers-that-be have really thought this through. The bins already start to smell

SIR, - I have just received the green bin recycling leaflet. On reading it I find that we are supposed to put kitchen waste in, including unwanted food.

I wonder whether the powers-that-be have really thought this through. The bins already start to smell very quickly with just garden waste - can you imagine what they will be like in hot weather, containing fish, meat, etc and left to stand for two weeks?
