Mr Hibbins — I would like to thank all residents who visited my stall at the Spring into Gardening fair at Victoria Gardens in Prahran to share with me their ideas for the Prahran electorate. There is so much more Victoria can do in regard to recycling and reducing waste, including a container deposit scheme, which other states are implementing; a ban on plastic bags — the Greens have introduced legislation to do that; as well as diverting food waste from the waste stream and reducing food waste. Organic waste makes up a high percentage of the waste stream and is by far and away the most polluting form of waste. Councils such as the Stonnington City Council are working with apartment dwellers to install worm farms and composting in common areas. More needs to be done.
