It is estimated that in SA alone, over 150,000 tonnes of food waste is put into general waste bins each year. Remember, food waste and organic materials need to be disposed of in your Organics bin (if this is allowed in your council area).
Would be great if councils offered compost bins to people that are willing to use them 😊
Love it! "Needs to"! 💚🥑♻️🌱 #NoFoodToLandfill #FeedFOGO
Live in an apartment. Won't work
Would be great if it's emptied more than once a month. The smell after a month of food waste (even in comfortable bags) is horrendous and our bin was full of maggots. Tried to do out bit but it's beyond disgusting!!
This morning we were joined by 150 of our colleagues in the waste and recycling industry at the annual KESAB Breakfast with the Minister.
The theme was 'The new circular economy' and ' single use plastics; compostable or biodegradable?'
David Speirs MP, Adam Faulkner (NAWMA), Scott Morton (BioBag World Australia), Tom Lunn (Detpak) and Peter Wadewitz (Peats Soil & Garden Supplies) gave us an insight into the hurdles that MRF operators and composters encounter on a daily basis, the opportunities in packaging and products and the role that the state government has to play in waste and recycling.
It's so awesome that South Australia is leading the way!
I have just return from NZ and the shops have a no plastic bags policy. Paper bags were all the go! I hate that our supermarkets still sell/offer plastic and dress shops etc.
they also have separate bins in so many public spaces. These were everywhere at the Ta Papa Museum.
Yay! Go South Australia!
I was advised that at present, all our recyclable materials are being stored in Warehouses. Why is that?
Are you about to throw out your old safety pins? STOP! These can be recycled!
Simply ensure that the pin clasp is closed and pop them in a metal food can or tin. Squeeze the top of the can together to seal the can and contain the pins inside and the pop into your yellow recycling bin for collection!
