Perth Councils To Introduce Transparent Bins Next Week

Everyone will see your garbage!

Perth Councils To Introduce Transparent Bins Next Week 7 News

A new campaign titled Face Your Waste is set to be trialled in Perth’s north next week.

The campaign created by Mindarie Regional Council aims to highlight the amount of rubbish we dispose and encourage us to reduce our waste.


The council’s chief executive, Gunther Hoppe, told the ABC, “If you have lots of waste in your bin, we'd love people to have a conversation about reducing it.

"Or if someone has a little bit of waste in the bin – we'd love people to ask how their neighbour they manage to get the waste so low."

If you’re not keen on everyone seeing what you put in your garbage, have no fear, just twenty homes will be selected to undergo the experiment and everyone has the choice to decline participation.

The clear bins will be replacing green ones in an eight week trial.

What do you think of the campaign? Would you want to give it a try and see if you’re encouraged to reduce waste? Let us know in our Facebook comments!
