Organic Bin Arrival

Christchurch has been trying to convert its rubbish system to one that is more environmentally friendly & also one that makes households try & think about the amount of rubbish that is created.

Step one has been around for years, the recycling. The only change was a great big yellow wheelie bin.

On Thursday 16th we received step 2. Step 2 is the organics bin. This bin is for all the organic rubbish, but it must be noted that dead birds & hedgehogs can't go in the bin meanwhile chicken bones, chicken carcasses, meat bones are allowed to go in. This bin gets emptied weekly so it's a wonder to me as to why dead birds can't go in it when obviously they are organic & it's not like they will be sitting in the bin for ages.

That's funny that you can't put dead birds and hedgehogs in
