    Dear screwfix community.
    I recently cleaned the shed in my new house and found freezer buried under lots of stuff. Unfortunately freezer was not connected to power supply for long time now and when I opened it I found old food (meat, cheese, corn, bread). I was brave enough to put some of the waste into bins and sealed them properly (I wear mask and odor was still unbearable). At the moment I do have 2 bags with contaminated food that needs to be collected and bottom of the freezer contains a bit of contaminated water (2 liters approx).
    I already contacted local council hopefully they can shed some light on situation.

    The water can go down the toilet, the solids should go in the non recycle bin. Not a nice job, but ya gotta do it.
