On enquiring about the new green waste bins being introduced by the Bass Coast Shire, I was told they would be compulsory, not opt in or out.
Previously they encouraged us to mulch or compost our green waste, and those of us who invested in this will now be disadvantaged by having to pay for a green bin of no use to us.
I suggested and opt out option but was told it would be too difficult to administer, and would involve regular audits of my property.
Looks like shades of a ‘Green Big Brother’ to me.
Please register your disapproval of this scheme on 5671 2211.
