What is in your bin and how can you reduce it?

In the coming week we shall try to help you with some ideas on how to reduce your waste in your bin to a bare minimum.

First of all, are you brave enough to put a sheet on the floor and empty your grey bin onto it?

If not, why not?

Are there food and compostable materials that are there festering away?

Have you got smelly cans, plastic bottles and yoghurt and magarine tubs in there?

How many plastic bags and pieces wrapping did you throw away?

How much paper and card board was in this bin?

If you said 'none' to all these questions, you probably have very little in the bin and you need not worry about any charges, if you had quite a bit, wait for the tips in the next couple of days, direct from the Queen of recycling (K).
