With the introduction of the biodegradable waste bags that can be put in either green or black bins, I understand that recyclables and non recyclables will be collected every other week. The one problem I see with this are people with pets like cats (of which there are a lot) who generate quite a lot of unuseful waste (litter trays). The black bins are going to hum after two weeks incubation! I wonder iif cat poo and pee constitutes food waste! unsure.gif

And nappies?! blink.gif

We have 9month old twins, that produce a lot of nappies.

Where are we supposed to put these? Our standard black wheelie bin is often full to bursting each week, I can't see that moving the food waste into the green bin will help us!

I know that the Bi-weekly collection issue came up a year or two ago. We were assured that this would not happen..

Its a total joke that by giving us another plastic box to bin food would make any diffrerence... we already seperate out cardboard, glass and plastic, yet still need the weekly collection for the stuff that can be recycled. Nappies and pet waste needs to be taken away weekly..

It feels a little underhanded the way the council has managed to slip the news of the bi weekly collection into the information leaflet which was delivered during the bin collections this week.. They tried to spin this news by promoting the benifits of the silly brown food bin along with taking your green bin away every other week...

I'm thinking its yet another stupid idea that WBC have had... be honest with us WBC... we dont need sugar coated messaging... tell us the way it is...

Here, here. rolleyes.gif

And Government Minister Pickles was committed to restoring Weekly Collections, though
limp wristed Environment Minister he works alongside was vehemently against.

WBC you should take a poll of your client base before slipping such serious
changes through.

Gather some Euro Countries notionally working under same EU Diktats as UK, have daily
collections.


Will our MP speak out on issue.?
This affects every one of your constituents sad.gif

For many of us, the weekly bin collection is only tangible return we
see for our Council Tax; will we now see large reduction?

It can be put in either, but will only be 'used' if you put it in the green bin.

You put the food waste in your green bin, not in your kitchen.

Why would you put garden waste in a bin in your kitchen?

It works fine, we've been doing it for years. We have a caddy in the kitchen with a sealed lid and all veg waste goes into it, and that gets emptied into a bucked with a lid on outside which is put on the compost heap weekly.

The problem is that bagged pooh can't go into the green bin because the bag is not bio-degradeable, and I suspect it will stink after two weeks in a hot black bin. I support the change because it sees less biodegradeable waste going to landfill, butWBC need to address the pooh-problem.

Therefore you would have seen that the issue is with 'effluent' disposal. Currently it is collected weekly. It looks like it will go fortnightly.
