At our apartment, we keep a small trash can devoted to organic waste. When it is full, which takes a week or so, we empty it in a compost container near our street.
My question is, how often should we clean that trash bin? Should we worry about cleaning it anyway? I'm only concerned about hygienic issues, because of course, it stinks. But with the cover on it, it's just fine.
Until now, I try to clean it every 2 weeks. But it's not a pleasant task (and last time, I did in the shower and it got plugged. After doing it, it took some extra time to clean the shower also). So, if we should have to clean it, is it ok (again, from an hygienic point of view) to do it in the sink?
