The area where I live has introduced a first for Melbourne regarding recycling . We have been given an extra bin , Purple top , for glass only . That is in addition to the Light green topped bin , being for garden waste . The Light Green Topped bin now takes food waste and all garden clippings for composting and is picked up weekly instead of fortnightly . We maintain the Dark Green topped bin , general house hold rubbish and the Yellow topped , paper and metal recyclables .
The Purple lid new addition bin for glass is a monthly pick up .
A Kitchen caddy bin was also supplied for food scraps to be added , vegetable peelings etc ,and then emptied into the Light green Lidded bin .
In the future we will have a red topped bin added .
I’m really happy with this recycling initiative and it is good to see Melton and Wyndham Council , both in the West of Melbourne , following suit shortly .
