I put some mechanical mouse traps in my cottage last fall. They toss the
mice into a bin...
I got back there for the first time in 4 months and found the bins full of

Any suggestion on how to clean these beasts up for next year?

You should easily find someone on that group who will be more than

As for cleaning them up... caustic soda (lye) should do a dandy job of it.
Make sure to wear skin and eye protection, though.
For next year, put some lime in the bins. It will help decompose the
