Clean Bone Disposal
Sometimes I hesitate to advise on this hint as it isn't usually accepted right away. I learned years ago that during the summer months, your table scraps can be a smelly nuisance in the trash/garbage container.
Normally, the sink disposal handles most of the garbage, but bones and other items not for the disposal, I started freezing in a large zipper bag (marked well) until collection day. My garbage is the cleanest on the street! Note: I do not put garbage in my freezer...only non-eatable scraps.
