Canberra needs more recycling pickups. And green waste pickup.

| | Comments (0)

Our recycling bin was almost full just after Christmas.  But we still had a week and a bit until the next recycling pickup.  Yet the rubbish bin had like one bag in it.  Meanwhile, garden waste just piles up around the place because we've got no easy way to get rid of it.

Canberra needs to make recycling pickups weekly, add a fortnightly greenwaste pickup and drop the frequency of rubbish pickups.  Or at least swap a rubbish pickup for a green waste pickup every fortnight.  

We had recycling piled around the bin in the kitchen, around the garage, and around the outside bin until pickup.  Then I filled up a couple of the neighbours' recycling bins to get rid of it all!
