Before centralised rubbish chutes were built in the 90s for HDB flats, each Condo and HDB unit had their own trash chute. Now only a common sight in Condos and older HDB flats, these individual garbage chutes come with its own setbacks despite their convenience. One of the main issues with having a garbage chute installed in your HDB or Condo is the increased risk of pest problems. If your rubbish chute is not well maintained or sealed, cockroaches, rats, and even unwanted odours may cause a hassle in your home. Therefore, it is important to constantly service and repair your rubbish chute to cockroach proof it and prevent the invasion of pests. The same applies to maintaining the function of your rubbish chute hopper if its quality is compromised, the proper replacement is necessary so that it effectively prevents the entry of fumigation gases and pests such as cockroaches.

Why Cockroach Proof Your Rubbish Chute?

To ensure that roaches do not invade your homes, the National Environmental Agency (NEA) and the Housing & Development Board (HDB) in Singapore conduct fogging and fumigation works. However, these are rarely conducted and are not effective in maintaining the sanitation of the bins. Therefore, hiring professional rubbish chute contractors to cockroach proof your HDB or Condo garbage chute with a properly sealed bin is important to:

  • Keep your home clean and healthy
  • Reduce the risk of allergens and harmful bacteria being spread in your home
  • Disinfect internal walls so that breeding grounds are completely removed

Frequently Asked Questions About Condo and HDB Rubbish Chutes

How to seal rubbish chute or fix it when the door is stuck?

When the trash chute is poorly maintained or not functional due to wear and tear over the years, it is common to have a rubbish chute door that often gets stuck. Rather than forcefully opening and pulling on the door, it is best to replace it. The same applies to the silicon seal of the chutes. With age, a proper seal will not be offered due to all the abrasion. In order to keep the foul smell and cockroaches out, contact a rubbish chute contractor to conduct the proper replacement.

What are the different types of rubbish chute hoppers available?

There are various types of chutes available so that homeowners in Singapore can easily decide on the best fit for their homes. For example, the Riben stainless steel hopper comes with a locking mechanism and is strategically designed to prevent the entry of cockroaches. The Maxden rubbish chute hopper also shuts completely to seal out pests and smells, instantly cockroach proofing the bin. Built with magnetic sealing technology, an airtight seal is offered by this stainless-steel hopper.

Manufactured in a range of sizes to fit HDB and condo estates, you can rest assured that the best-fit door will be installed in your home.
