Rinse recycling containers Food containers put in recycling bags should be washed to remove traces of food and scent, which can attract animals. Where possible, store waste in a closed container with a tight fitting or locking lid.
Use an approved repellent or deterrent You can use an approved product, such as the repellent 'Scoot', which can be purchased from most DIY or garden centres. The use of unapproved chemicals or substances (such as creosote, diesel oil, banned pesticides etc) for pest control is an offence under the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985.
