Doesn’t it smell?

This is probably the most common question I get and my response is usually to open up the bin and let them smell it.

Your bin should smell like dirt or maybe the faint smell of any recent additions with strong smells like onions, cilantro, lavender (these were all in my bin as I wrote this post). These smells dissipate quickly and as long as the food waste is covered you shouldn’t be able to smell it unless you uncover it and even then it should never smell foul, sour, or like rotting garbage.

Overall the bin will not smell, if your bin has a strong smell it’s a sign that something is wrong, see Help, my bin smells.
