City bowing to the ‘Yuk’ factor with green bins – Canada

GuelphMercury – City bowing to the ‘Yuk’ factor with green bins.

This is amazing that people think that the smell of their green bins is more important than a whole community waste management system.  Compostable bags do not always biodegrade in the place they are disposed to and when they don’t they can cause a lot of problems clogging machinery.

People hate change it seems.   When we are on the wrong road, we have to change course to get back on track. Puttiing plastic bags in green bins just because it prevents their bin from smelling is on the wrong road. 

We need to get on and understand what a sustainable path or road is.
