BY KERNAN ANDREWS IF GALWAY'S ambitious waste management scheme is going to work, people must separate their waste correctly and put the proper waste into the proper bin.

Got something to say?
This is the message of Richard Maguire, the Galway City Council's environmental education officer, who is concerned by the fact that about 25 per cent of green bin material has to be sent to landfill because of contamination due to people putting the wrong kind of waste in. Maguire says the results from the council's household waste management and recycling scheme are very encouraging. "Compared to the year 2000, waste going to landfill will be down from 17,530 tonnes to less than 8,500 by the end of the year," he said. This has been achieved by the public separating its waste into the three wheelie

bins provided by the corporation; the grey bin for non-recyclable waste, the brown bin for organic and compostible waste, and the green bin for dry recyclable waste. However, a quarter of all items from the green bins, that could be recycled, has had to go to landfill. "This is caused by putting the wrong ' kind of items in the bin, or by putting wet or dirty items in it," said Maguire. "The key to the green bin is simple, it takes paper, cardboard, plastics cartons, and food cans, but all items must be clean and dry." The Galway City Council is the only local authority in Ireland to have such a waste management scheme and is setting an example for the rest of the country. Maguire is encouraging Galwegians to make sure all waste going into the green bins is clean and dry and is the kind of waste that is meant to go into the green bin.
