— Provide $2 million trash pack subsidy of up to $180 a year for concession card holders to assist with removal and recycling of garden waste;

— Provide $1.8 million for recycling bins in town centres, building on the Greens 2008 initiative for recycling across Civic;

— Commit $200,000 to YellowVan to assist the operations of the only ACT food rescue organisation;

— Fund an additional staff member at ACTSmart to boost organic waste recovery in offices and businesses;

— Fund up to 15 drop-off recycling points for batteries and compact fluorescent bulbs.

Who is bringing in green bins? I want a bin like my garbage and recycling for my food and garden scraps. Because I have loads of veggie rubbish. GIVE ME A GREEN BIN AND I WILL VOTE

Weekly recycling pickups will get my vote and the cleaning of the lakes (brinabella canadates all seem to be on this though

Compost bins for poor people. Finally a policy I can get behind. They’re going to have to be big bins to fit 21,000 people in them though.

What a complete waste of time that is. Education program for the dumb and stupid.

Which 21,000 households?

In descending order of priority:

– solar panel system owners
– GreenChoice subscribers
– bike riders
– Mac owners
– those lovely homeless kids in Chisholm

They missed hard rubbish pick up again.

not true mr jim, if you read the initiative document again you will see that the ACT Greens support the continuation of a Bulky Goods collection service. Nothing is wasted on them it seems.
