Big changes proposed for NSW household rubbish bins

1 Mins read

A new initiative aiming to reduce landfills in NSW is around the corner, with the state government set to announce a $350 million overhaul of household bins. The plan has been proposed by Energy and Environment Minister Matt Kean and is expected to be fully revealed in the upcoming NSW budget.

Local councils will now have to provide a separate green bin for food and garden waste in a push to remove food items such as leftovers scraps from the traditional “all-purpose” red bin.

The Daily Telegraph reports the government is giving councils until 2030 to fully incorporate the new system, which aims to reduce household waste by 50 percent.

One of the government aims to reduce the total waste generated by 10 percent per person by 2030. The initiative seeks to limit plastic litter by 30 percent by 2025 and triple plastics NSW’s recycling rate by 2030.

The government has also brought supermarkets and restaurants into the fold, with businesses required to separate food waste from regular waste under the rubbish and recycling “revolution”.

Supermarkets and select hospitality businesses will have four years to change industries, given a cool $65 million to assist the transition.
