To guide the discussion, we invite your feedback in response to the following questions.

You may wish to consider issues such as:
- bin infrastructure, including food caddies;
- frequency of collections;
- hard waste collections;
- education to support behaviour change in councils;
- contracting requirements or specifications for waste management and recycling services;
- support in data collection and transparency in disclosing information;
- support for Infrastructure (including soft infrastructure) and for educating households;
