Remove Red Bins in Australia

This petition had 776 supporters

According to Statistics 8 billion dollars worth of food products bought in Australia is wasted and thrown away by consumers every years. As  a result, over 400 tonnes of food in Australia are not consumed.  Consequently, 20 per cent of food bought in Australia is disposed in red bins which harmfully adds to the detrimental  amount of increasing  landfill dumps in Australia. Many of us just accept that this has always been the case and therefore believe that it is right to continue doing so. However, we only continue to do so, simply because we are able to which is why we aim to remove all red bins from our waste disposal system. Instead we will introduce a range of new bins, including ones for plastic, non- renewable kitchen scraps (such as bones), hygiene bins (for medical waste)and any other waste that currently goes into red bins must be deposited manually at a collection deposit. We would introduce these measures (see our ‘What is Happening’ page for more info.)along with a guide for people which provides strategies and tips for reducing wastage, especially food wastage, by providing a series of recipes which put good use to commonly wasted food scraps. By doing this, we will save money, resources, and our planet by ensuring that the future is sustainable.
