Beyond the Bin

The average Australian throws away 1.5 tonnes of waste per year and most of it goes in our kerbside bins. So when you wheel your bins out to the kerb, do you ever think about what happens to its contents?

There is no ‘away’ when we throw stuff away, so where does it go? What happens to it? Where does it end up?

Watch our Beyond the Bin clip below to find out.
