Wheelie bins

CAN BOB Bright explain to me why Newport Council are trying to save money by replacing large wheelie bins for smaller ones? Does it make any difference to empty half full bins and how much is that costing? What happens to the large ones, thrown in the land fill I expect?

IT is a job creation scheme. You realize their budgets being cut by so giving every one more bins, box bags etc it will take longer to collect the waste so they can employ more bin men and uses that as an excuse to put up the Council tax. Mind you 40% of Council tax goes towards paying for their pension scheme

I suggest that as these bins boxes and bags belong to the council that we start charging the council for storing them on our property

dont any of you seriously know the answer?

its supposed to encourage (read: force) you to throw away less waste and recycle more.
if you cant physically fit the rubbish in the bin, you're supposed to realise that perhaps some of whats going in, could be recycled.

it is designed to save landfill costs (a huge expense)

its not a job creation scheme - NCC are making people redundant because they cant afford wages now. why would they make a policy that forces themselves to spend more?

If you have more non recyclable rubbish than will fit into a tiny bin it changes nothing, Well it will more fly tipping and rubbish being burnt in gardens

So what happens if you recycle everything you can and the bin is still not big enough ?
.......and don't start talking cobblers about taking it to the tip as not all people have cars and the tip is now closing at ridiculous times.

Fly tipping perhaps ?
