IPA Research Fellow Matthew Lesh appeared in the Herald Sun on Monday 19 March about Maribyrnong Council rummaging through their residents’ bins and correcting their recycling habits.

Matthew Lesh, from free market think tank the Institute of Public Affairs, lashed out at the cost and time that would have been spent for the exercise.

“Looking through people’s bins is a creepy invasion of privacy — the council should butt out of our personal lives,” he said.

“Big Brother is not only watching you, they’re now sorting through your trash.

“It’s no wonder that rates are skyrocketing.”

Matthew also appeared on Channel 9 News:
