You may recently have read in the news that the current administration in the Council are seeking to try new ways of increasing recycling and reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. One of the suggestions is to have fortnightly bin collections of your black and green bins. I applaud efforts to increase the recycling rate but I think we have to consider carefully the implications. A recent trial carried out in Rothwell that involved fortnightly collections was deemed successful, but a key part of this was the provision of a weekly collection of food waste. At the moment the proposals do not contain provision for the collection of food waste.
