reducing waste

Less Rubbish Collections = Less Waste

By Heather 11 years ago

I am convinced that the easier it is to throw things away - the more we throw away. I reckon if we had a waste collection every 3 days we would find things to throw away every three days! On the other hand I think that if local authorities want to get serious about reducing the amount of waste they deal with, just cut the collections and encourage folk to be accountable for their own waste. There's industrial action in Vancouver and instead of having the usual photos of "Mrs Bouquet" talking about how she has rats and stinking garbage - they have got a real enthusiam for reducing waste and composting
If we look at this problem logically and armed with the appropriate tools (including Bokashi and Worms), not only would less collections mean less expense, but it would also mean less waste, I reckon.
Maybe we need a Wiggly Wigglers pilot scheme?
