    Doing some research. As you know, bin collections are every fortnight. Would you pay 10 a month to have someone collect your extra bin bags on the alternative weeks to the council collections?

    Unfortunately our council recycling only takes plastic bottles, paper, cardboard, and cans. Therefore more goes into the normal rubbish bin than I'd like. It does mean that we still have weekly collections. Many of us take our glass waste to local recycling bins but we can't do that with everything.
    Don't listen to me, I'm no expert!

    No I wouldn't, as:
    1 - we have weekly refuse collections
    2 - I already pay 2500 per annum in council tax
    3 - we have bags not a bin for general rubbish and there's no limit on the number of bags (other than the allocation of 80 bags p.a.)
    The questions that get the best answers are the questions that give most detail....
