Show notes with links and key concepts: The Waste Between Our Ears from Paper Chain and Acres Magazine City to Soil Focus on engagement and education. Queanbeyan, the location for the first City to Soil program. "We need this stuff really clean because it's going into the soil to grow food to feed your children." Recycling program success is measured by contamination levels. The initial program in Queanbeyan had a contamination level of less than half a percent. With four councils involved, Goulburn, Canberra, Armidale and Queanbeyan, the levels were at .2%. City to Soil research lead to the yellow lidded recycling bins. With a paper survey about the program, the response rate was 55%! Soft drinks bottles are the same material as bicycle helmets.
