In a recent article in the paper they calculated the cost of people not using the correct bins for the weekly pickup. It is estimated and 40% of the contents of the blue is food scraps (much of which was still edible on the day of disposal). These scraps should be placed in the green bin as they are compatible. The contents of this bin goes directly to Jeffries to be composted thus removing the waste from the red bin that Council has to send to landfill at a significant cost to ratepayers. All households in Unleywill soon receive a green caddy and a years supply of compostible bags to further progress process.
