Half-sized option for council rubbish bags.

Petition details

We need to offer half-sized council rubbish bags for sale, additional to the current full-sized rubbish bags. This will help us consciously reduce waste, good for reducing costs and weights of the bags which is especially for those on benefits or the elderly on Super, will help reduce the illegal dumping of rubbish, and helps ease the burden of those collecting the rubbish.

Background information

We need to produce less waste and throw out less rubbish, and half-sized rubbish bags will prove to be an important component in supporting that behaviour. The Southern landfill in Wellington is fast running out of space. We need to reduce the rubbish we send to our landfills.
