You might remember last week I posted a theory about how the NoWaste by 2010 campaign is going to be achieved by making it so we actually have nowhere to put our waste.
Well, I have measured the two types of bins pictured and it all adds up.
The older style bin is 99 x 39 x 39cm (as mentioned earlier). This works out at 150,579 cubic cm or 150.579 litres.
The newer bins’ measurements are 73 x 43 x 43cm, giving them a volume of 134,977 cubic cm or 134.977 litres.
Which makes them 15L smaller than the older ones!
