The Green Waste Management Challenge
Contamination of green waste with problem waste like Asbestos, chemicals and household waste can turn a valuable resource into an expensive problem.
The public health issues and costs associated with the treatment of contaminated green waste are threatening the viability of green waste for diversion.
The problem can get much bigger with several Australian councils being compelled to recall mulch due to contamination.
Green waste piles are often unsupervised with no or lower fees than general waste. Users often slip all sorts of waste into green waste piles to avoid fees and multiple offload points.
Green waste deposits need to be properly inspected, this provides an extra staffing burden that most sites cant manage.
The LBin System allows green waste to be properly inspected and managed at the same location as General Waste.
