Thank you for a thoughtful article. Such schemes are starting up in various places. My local council (City of Greater Geelong) will soon be introducing a trial with an extra bin provided for food waste, which will be in addition to the landfill bin, the recycling bin and garden waste bin.

Of greater environmental value would be the avoidance of food waste in the first place. I understand that some 30% of food is wasted in the world all along the supply chains. Sadly the wastage of food at the consumer level is the most environmentally expensive where it has had the most food miles, processing and storage. Luckily that is where the individual has the most scope for action.

{Correction - City of Greater Geelong is examining the proposal}
