Counting on … day 348 

13th October 2022

An observation: when I was a child every household had a single dustbin of size that could be lifted to empty it in to the dustbin lorry. There were no recycling bins or garden waste bins. Now households all  have a wheelie bin which is at least 50% bigger plus two or more recycling bins, a food waste bin and, as required, a garden waste bin. How come we produce so much more to discard?
