There are many factors that can influence the process (like temperature, the time of year, and the location of your bio-bin, just to name a few).

The capsule will certainly break down in landfill, so general waste to decompose is no problem in all councils. Green Bins can vary by council in regards to industrial composting facilities.
The capsules are EN13432 certified. This means that after 12 weeks in an industrial composter, the capsule will disintegrate and pass through a 2×2mm mesh and after 6 months all that remains is CO2, water and minerals. Read about the EN13432 certification standard here.
