The Victorian State Government is considering implementing and “organics plan”, which would potential reduce the number of garbage bin pick ups and emphasize the recycling of food scraps.

This proposal is part of an overall drive to reduce household waste.

Such a system would impose greater requirements on the citizens to sort more of their house hold rubbish.

In other countries such as Japan and Italy , the use of multi colored garbage bags is common to help in the sorting out of household waste.
