    Default External bin chute

    Any experience/ opinions on having the bin chute outside your condo unit? Where are these usually located? At the stairwell or next to lift or outside your front door? Will the area where the external bin chute is located be slghtly dirty/ smelly/ attract cockroaches as compared to having one internally? Does this mean mgt has to assign cleaners to clean-up the area more regularly if at all? Will this therefore translate to higher mgt fees for residents?

    Think the model is pretty similar to HDB. The older condos have bin chutes inside the house so cockroaches and enter the house easily. Don't stay in new condo so can't comment about it however maintenance fee would have included these cleaning works right from the beginning so no worries. Won't have further increase to the fee.

    I was looking at floor plans. I just realise that we are paying for chute space inside the house

    Its your own rubbish's exit point! What do you expect? Be grateful that you're not paying for your neighbor's chute space.. . The old HDB has pipes and trunkings running through our ceilings which are carrying our neighbor's toilet wastes.. and you have to pay for those huge unsightly pipes to be painted, not your neighbors and your downstairs neighbors will have to pay for your pipes running into their houses too...

    For smaller units like studio and 1bdrm usually have bin chute outside. Inconvenience in exchange for slight more livable space since unit is small.
    As for cleaniness all depend on the resident behavior. All it takes is one inconsiderate family all can be ruin
