Food for Thought or Thoughts for Food Waste ?
Bin Audits conducted in 2017 showed that
- food waste and green organic matter made up as much as 48% of the waste in the general waste bin
when this organic material is disposed of in the general waste bin (blue lid mainland and red lid KI) it goes to landfill with as much as 40-100kg of methane produced for every tonne of waste going into landfill.
Food waste (without packaging) and even small amounts of green organic materials can go in the green organics bin which will be processed into valuable mulch or compost and returned to the earth to enrich the soil.
