There is gold in those bins...well not quite, but imagine if we thought of our waste and recycling bins as full of treasure - how would this change the way we act?! Would we be more careful?
Tomorrow, Friday 17th of February, The Waikato Environment Centre will be presenting an oral submission on the waste minimization plans developed by Hamilton City Council. We fully support the separation of glass, a food waste collection and less waste in the system all round! And it seems we are on the same page as the majority of submitters. 64% of submitters support the separation of glass and 73% support a food waste collection. Awesome! If you can pop along to the Council hearings and show you support for the Council's proposed waste minimization plans - please do! Happening this Thursday and Friday, starting at 9.30am each day.
