Make publoic eaters into instant recycle

Make publoic eaters into instant recycle

David Barraclough By David Barraclough

Public eaters whose wastet overwhelmingly goes to mixed waste stream or the gutter could be instant recyclers given somewhere easy to eparate eatables from plastic trash. Bananabins do the trick!

Tower Hamlets Idea stage

This country trashes around 5.000, 000 tonnes of food waste generated in cafee's, take away sandwishes catering etc mostlyy mixed, lost to the gutter. We aim to recruit public eaters, en masse, as food-waste recyclers. To contribute left-overs – banana peels their banner – to the compost and anaerobic digesters operaters by dropping it in bins where they’re eating: simple, inexpensive and fruitfull. This can be a constant campaign adopted by those in control of public-access space. T

What we'll deliver:

  • handy and easy means of disposal of valuable nutritious waste.
  • As models easily replicable by bublic authorities and controlllers of space accesible to the public.
  • Raise public awareness of need and ease of NOT wasting but recycling food-left overs

Why it's a great idea:

Millions of tonnes a year are destroyed because we waste a huge proportion of what we grow and what we waste at farms, wholesalers, supermarkets, cafees and ourselves. Bananabins will help all and anyone consuming food in public spaces to deposit their left-overs as the FIRST-STAGE of returning nutrients to the soil. Once our two prototypes are in situ they will be active promoters and encourage us all to think recycling and choose bananabins where they know it's travelling on the right route. After bananas ? Avocados, tomatoes, oranges, cougettes ... the list is not endless but it is quite long!

Steps to get it done:

  • SUCCESSFULL ADOPTION OF PROTOTYPE BANANABINS BY TOWER HAMLETS
  • OBSERVATION OF HABITIAUL USE BY LOCAL WORKING POPULATION
  • MANIFEST NEED FOR ADDITIONAL BANANABINS

This will be a first step. The bins should attract publicity and encourage local authorities to abopt this or similar self promoting schemes.
