Food waste can stay out of landfill!

In order to divert more food waste from our red landfill bins, I strongly supported free kitchen caddies and compostable bags for West Torrens residents back in 2018.

It is good to see Woolworths cutting the use of single-use plastic by providing compostable bags for all fruit and veg it it’s stores. These can then be re-used for food waste and thrown into your green bin, where it is then turned into garden compost. This is not only good for the environment but saves council money from waste to landfill costs.

Did you know that up to 50% of the volume of the red bin is food waste that could be re-used rather than going to landfill?

I support an extended trial of weekly collection of green bins to encourage more food waste to be disposed of in green bins as one of the reasons residents avoid is the worry of bin odour.

Vote [1] Farnden on your ballot paper so I can work on improving our environmental impact further over the next 4 years
