If a two bin system provides similar environmental benefits to that of a three bin system- What do you think of keeping the two bin system?
A two bin system consists of a recycling bin and a general waste bin, the same as you have now. In comparison to a three bin system, the separation of organic waste (green and food waste ) happens at a processing facility instead of at your house. The processing facility then recovers resources from the contents of the general waste bin by processing it into re-usable products including compost, metals, glass, plastics and potentially energy.
For many people, this system would be more convenient than a three bin system because for the household, nothing changes.
LMCC could develop a processing facility that provides this service convenience, while delivering similar environmental benefits to a three bin system- Would you be happy with business as usual at the household end of dealing with rubbish?
