Liv­ing in a flat com­plex, it does not work. I pre­ferred the old big bin. A lot do not use the right ones and other peo­ple who do end up re-sort­ing them. - Laura Gow­ing‘

Same is­sues in my units. All it takes is one per­son to put a mas­sive card­board box in a yel­low bin and boom, not enough room for ev­ery­one else. Bins over­flow. I'm con­stantly pulling out stuff from our bins to make room. - Sarah Bates ‘

Have ac­tu­ally been us­ing a four bin sys­tem for years and it couldn't be eas­ier. Plas­tics/glass in one, card­board/pa­per in an­other, greens in one and land­fill rub­bish in the last. It's easy prac­tice and cost ev­ery­one less in the long run too! - Avi Mel­niker ‘

Love it but wish yel­low was picked up weekly and red fort­nightly. - Co­ralie Pin­ney ‘

I like the sys­tem but I wish the red bin was the same size as the others. We strug­gle with nap­pies… and no, I'm not go­ing to use cloth nap­pies! - Chris­tine Pas­coe ‘

Love it!! - Belinda Brohman
