The surprising thing about statistics is how easy it is to bias them. The success of B green bins in Byron shire for example. Is it possible that the existence of these bins allows people to dispose of garden waste that they once took to the tip themselves.
Or is it that waste that has been sitting in their garden is now being disposed of.
I would like to know if their is a corresponding decrease in the number of tip visits as this just means that Council revenue has decreased while their expenditure has increased.
