No Garden Waste – Please

We are really glad so many people are using the Aerobins at the Dawkins Reserve Site, but it is a pain having to clear up the garden rubbish that gets dumped in the bins (often the brown bin that we store paper and card in). It overwhelms them and doesn’t break down and we have to haul it out behind the bins for council to collect when they mow the site. Not a good look.

We’ve tried painting the bins with signs, but this doesn’t seem to put any people off. Short of staking out the site with night vision goggles over the weekend, I’m not sure how we can tackle this problem. Any ideas?
