The News Shopper carried a report a couple of weeks ago about Refuse Rage.
Bexley council has been trying to edge up the proportion of waste recycled by
refusing to collect the real rubbish whenever it can get away with it. Their
newest bins are stamped with symbols confirming they will not be emptied if not fully closed,
nor will any extra sack be taken away.
What with this and the £30 for collecting each item that won’t fit in the bin, fly tipping is encouraged. In my road we share the bins, my neighbour with young children fills my green bin and I use her brown one. I recommend it.
