We have half a dozen communal bins here per street in Middlesbrough and they get emptied every week. I have no idea about recycling to be honest, no recycle bins, no recycling truck comes around as far as I can gather.

Only lived here a few months so not really clued up on the eco system, but we certainly get a weekly refuse collection.

How any council can agree to a 3 week collection I do not know, just goes to show that once again these people do not live in the real world.

We are in the 21st century and waste dumping should be a thing of the passed but it is just getting worse and worse.

It makes me think of those futuristic films set 100 years from now that are not so futuristic after all as most of them are living in slums and the world has gone backwards. It really is coming true!

we have 3 recycling bins amd one lack wheelie bin which is collected every 2 week's .my worry is bury where the first to go from 1 to 2 week collection and alot of councils followed suit .

fly tipping will increase if this takes of which will cost even more to sort out

Then they wonder why people fly tip.
luckily my tip is only 4 miles away and i visit it every other week as our fortnightly collection is difficult with 2 adults 1 kid and three dogs

Round here I get recycling and rubbish collected every week, my parents are in the same council area and only get rubbish collected weekly, if they want to recycle they have to walk 15 mins up the road to the recycling bins in the supermarket car park.

Also this council loves removing the litter bins in the streets, if they end up getting full up until they are overflowing and people start putting rubbish round the bottom because they can't fit anymore in, they take them away with the excuse that "they are attracting rubbish". All 3 of the litter bins in my parents road were removed , residents complained and the council put 1 back. Round here 5 that I know of have gone in the last year.

We get weekly collection of Recycled Items, Food Waste & Glass Bottles/Jars

We get Fortnightly Collection of Refuse and Garden Waste.

We do not have Wheely Bins due to our coastal area the build of most properties cannot accommodate Wheely Bins, but....

I find that by correctly recycling waste and using the food bins that 2 Dustbin canisters are plenty enough for me to keep refuse for 2 weeks secured from animals and we are a family of 6, i could easily go 4 weeks collection and if i ever go over a quick trip to the local recycling center solves all.

How about you learn to manage your waste better?

Yes the cutbacks are a pain but think of the much bigger picture regarding the waste that we dispose of. Its not just about councils saving money, its also about the ecosystem.

Before you criticise the decision, think about how you can make a change which will benefit more than just yourself.

and maybe a facility to order bins

We collect all the rubbish in our street and take it to the local park and burn it while dancing around the fire pit in a drink and drug fueled trance. Great neighbourly bonding ;)

That's a long time! Ours are weekly and we are allowed 2 bin bags a week. We also have fortnightly cardboard/plastic/paper/glass collections.

I am all for that but when you get packaging like this (see image below) for a single computer mouse along with all the other over the top packaging you get from every day shopping it is getting harder and harder to do it.

If the ones who have the power are not bothering to make an effort and are plonking all their extra crap on us then how are we supposed to manage it at our end?

It is all a bad cycle, manufacturers and retailers have to add extra packaging because they can't rely on the distributers to distribute and ship their products in a safe and organised manner.

So, what happens? What do the councils and the Government choose to do? They decide to turn a blind eye and continue to blame Joe Public as they always do.

Unless this is sorted at the top along with everything else that is wrong with the country then things are only going to get worse.

This all needs to stop at the top, stop wasting money, stop giving each other back handers and paying £600 for an item within the system which can be purchased by Joe Public on the street for £200 thus wasting money though corruption for individual greed.

Recycle my ****! The Government needs a recycle and I mean a totally new clean fresh one. I have no idea who but I am sick of these Muppet's taking turns at showing us how to play Sim City and failing badly!

Below is one large box with loads of packaging for 1 computer mouse in a blister pack about 20cm square.

Hmmm, I never thought about it because there is not one single recycle box or bin in the whole area. Not a single one, and with me being new to the area I just assumed it did not exist, everyone throws their rubbish into the communal bins including the kitchen sink, and I really mean that, lol. Every time I go out there is a settee or some bedroom furniture in them, lol.

Places like bury just don't have the money. Sad but de-industrialisation is creating social problems.
#20
Ours is every 2 weeks, but you can ask for a bigger bin and if they deem it necessary they give u a bin double the size of a normal wheelie bin, I got one and it's never full, bloody neighbours keep trying to put their rubbish it in though

That's probably because you live in the posh end and the council think you can afford to recycle at your local tip. :)

No seriously, I think you come under a different borough? Are you Redcar? I went to a library up Normanby road and I could not use it to borrow books because I had a Borough library card and they were under Redcar. oO

The only thing worth recycling is aluminium. The rest is actually worse for the environment if you recycle it.

Don't worry OP, I knew what you meant, and I makes loads of typos. Someone will find one or two in this I'm sure.

I live in the next council over, so we will probably be next... :(

I thought the residents of Bury just dumped their rubbish in the nearest layby anyway so it won't really bother them will it? :D
