“During my walk today while in lockdown I came across one of the smartest things I’ve seen in a while,” Bianca wrote on the Cleaning and Organization Inspiration Australia The Facebook page.

“The reason for this is to keep the birds out of your bins so they don’t create a mess. I thought this might be helpful for someone who might have this issue.

Facebook users have agreed that this is a common problem many homeowners face, and a recent study revealed how some cockatoos teach themselves to open trash cans.

“Bin’s day in our city is an arrogant paradise.”

Added another: “It’s a great idea, it avoids the mess!” »

Wrote a third: “Running to my bins to do this, 100%.”

Added one more: “Good idea, then this prevents trash from exploding in the streets and yards.”
