Many of you have mentioned you would like a third bin for garden waste. Do you think we should all have a third bin for green waste?
Over half of your garbage bin consists of organic waste, which is made up of food and garden waste that can be processed into a re-usable product. Currently, this organic waste goes straight to Awaba Landfill and produces greenhouse gases that are harmful to the environment.
Much of this organic waste can be prevented from going to the landfill. Some ways of doing this use a two-bin system, while others use a three-bin system... What way do you think we should deal with organic waste?
Would you prefer to keep the bin system you have now and let Council sort it out? Alternatively, would you like to do some of the sorting at home and have a third bin? We want to hear what you think.
