In our area we have a smaller version of the larger wheelie bins that are available in most boroughs. We have two wheelie bins one for household general waste the other for recycling.
The third we have to pay for to buy a bin for garden waste, then pay additionally for collection. This amounts to £53 per year. Then renewal of £40 a year.
However despite paying one of the highest council tax bands, the bins are collected fortnightly. If we require a extra collection this can be requested and a fee of £24 applies.
Am really considering looking into a private bin service where the bins provided are large 1100L or of choice size. But can throw everything in the one bin incl gardening materials.
What is your opinion?
