Why waste green waste?
Surely it is time for Byron Shire Council to step up to the plate and introduce a green waste bin to its waste collection service. This service seems to be provided by many other councils. While Grafton’s system is good, Ballina appear to have hit on the best system.
The green bin, which includes not only garden clippings but unwrapped (or paper-wrapped) kitchen vegetable scraps and scrap paper, removed weekly. The red bin, reserved for non-recyclable material, plastic bags, meat scraps etc (the landfill), removed fortnightly; while the yellow recycle bin is removed on alternate weeks to the red bin.
This would stop valuable green material ending up in landfill as well as reducing the overall amount of landfill.
