[GreenYes] A Back-To-The -Land Bin, A Problem Bin, A Recyclables Bin

How about a three bin system for suburban situations - a recyclables bin, a "back-to-the land" bin, and a "problem bin"??
 
Imagine the subtle change in awareness and behaviour with the constant reinforcement of putting things in the problem bin.
 
 
(We are fortunate in Sydney, Australia, in having virtually universal kerbside pick up of recyclables.
And a reasonable penetration of separate green or garden organics collections. But we still throw heaps of our valuable organic material into the garbage.)
