Why Don't Green Bin/Box Recycling Systems Yield Higher Usage Rates?

WHY DON’T GREEN BIN/BOX RECYCLING SYSTEMS YIELD HIGHER USAGE RATES?

The Green Bin/Kitchen Waste recycling system is a great idea for recycling organic waste and diverting it from landfills, but many home owners won’t use it. Why not?

 
 

BECAUSE IT STINKS!!

 
Even though the Kitchen Waste box is virtually air tight (so you can’t smell the waste most of the time) when you do open it to add new material you can be overwhelmed by the strong odor of decomposing garbage! Then, a day or two later when the Kitchen Waste box is full, you get a ‘double whammy’ (first, from the Kitchen Waste box, then from the larger Green Bin!) when you open the small Kitchen Waste box to transfer the garbage to the larger Green Bin.

 
The majority of home owners want to ‘do the right thing’ and divert their garbage wherever possible. However, the smell can be quite offensive and many people are resistant to exposing themselves to that kind of malodor on a regular basis, so the system can be by-passed as a matter of personal convenience. Organic waste might then be put into the regular garbage stream and the investment in the recycling system will be compromised, causing the fiscal payback for the system to be extended.


So, what can municipalities do to: 1) address this situation, 2) increase usage of the Green Bin system, and 3) get the Green Bin ROI (Return On Investment) back on track?
