See-through wheelie bins proposed in new plan to shame rubbish recyclers

An Australian council has proposed the roll out of see-through recycling wheelie bins as part of a plan to enforce better practices on residents by making them feel embarrassed..

Adelaide councillors suggested transparent bins would have the two-pronged effect of making people feel “rubbish shame” if they used their bins incorrectly, as well as making it easier for people to fossick in bins for cans they wish to exchange at bottle depots, according to Adelaide Now.

Adelaide City Councillor Robert Simms said the see-through bins would ensure Adelaide remained a leader in recycling.

South Australia first implemented a container deposit scheme in 1977, which has slowly spread to other states and territories.

It was adopted in the NT in 2012, in NSW in 2017 and the ACT and QLD in 2018. WA will implement its own scheme in 2020, as will Tasmania in 2022.
