More and more people are complaining about this now - I've seen three posts on my facebook just this morning. Isn't there a petition or demonstration or some action that can be done?

Our black bin was due to be emptied 10 days ago. My wife 'phoned the Environment dept and was assured it would be done. She made three more calls over several days and I eventually filled in the form on the website.  All to no avail. Today, at 1220, I emailed Dave Cowans who has responsibility for the department. At 1410 it was emptied.

It shouldn't take having to 'phone the cllr in charge for a response. But many thanks and Kudos to Dave Cowans.

I noticed on Thursday, the garden waste team in new Biffa overalls, is it just this team or is all waste services contracted out ?

Maybe that would explain why they didn't bother taking mine away this week and resulted in me having to take  it to Mochdre tip in the back of the car.

Recycling body criticises Pringles and Lucozade packaging.

The Recycling Association named them in a list of products that pose the biggest challenges for reuse.

I saw a guy on TV yesterday talking about those packages and some containers, for example Coffee Mate are as bad as the Pringles package.
They contain a number of different materials and I never know which stacker bin they should go in.

I keep trying to weigh up cleaning fluid bottles and various types of food packaging....

My next door neighbour ( a CCBC Manager who was instrumental in bringing in the stacker bins scheme)  kept telling me I was wrong, ... so from that that point on, I gave up, they go to landfill... simple!
