I'm surprised he has maggots in his green bin; many people get them in the black bin.
I still use dustbin liners for my household rubbish and put all my pedal bin bags into there and when full sellotape the top securely before putting it into the bin.
So far I've not been troubled with maggots.
I've also kept my dustbins and only use the wheelie bin on the day when they are to be collected.
