What if my kitchen catcher starts to smell?

There are a few ways you can prevent smells: • Sprinkle in some baking soda • Rinse it out with vinegar • Wash it in your dishwasher • Line with a single piece of newspaper/cardboard • Wrap food scraps in a paper towel, newspaper, paper bag or box. In summer, you can also keep material frozen until organics collection day.
