Locals take paint to boring community compost bins
COMPOST BIN too dull? Unexciting? Uninviting to fill with food and garden waste?
Give it a new life with the application of a little imagination and paint. That’s what the people around the Sustainable Streets Demonstration Project in Chippendale have done.
Bored with the dull, plain old green of some of the Aerobins on their streets, they took the DIY approach to redecorating and in doing so brightened up their streets with swashes of vivid colour.
The community composting system has been temporarily taken down to solve a few problems and make a new start, but we are hoping that the rebooted system will include these colourful examples.
