Victorian households could be separating rubbish into six or more bins - instead of the usual two or three - to help solve the state's recycling crisis.

Definitely something like that needed.

But how it will work for city-dwellers nobody knows.

And how many different rubbish bin collection trucks will be needed to pick up all six bins?!

And how much fuel will they need, and how much exhaust fumes will they pump into the air?

Lowering the price of compost bins would be a good start.

Seriously, the simplest ones start at $60, going all the way up to $300!

That's why we have a pile in a disused corner flower bed with old tarp over it.

We were looking at hybrid buses here, but - of course - it was deemed too expensive.

It appears that Israel is now going to run an Electric road where the charging is done as you drive down the road from points under the road this would mean that charging points would become unnecessary
