I AM a little confused now.

In Postbag last week was a letter from the council explaining how the black and orange bags are separated after being put on the same cart, so it sounds like this is going to continue.

But then on page 20 the council Executive meeting was extolling the virtues of having wheelie bins, which apparently we are to get whether we want them or not, which will be paid for by the fact that they will no longer supply bags.

So are we now apparently to put the rubbish directly into the bin?

How will the recycling be separated then?

As a disabled person, how am I supposed to clean this bin? How do I move it to the edge of my property as directed by the council.

The bin cannot stay on the edge of my property because I won't be able to get my car on or off.

I have paid a large amount of money to have my front garden paved and a dropped kerb put in. Where are the bins to go if they won't fit onto my front garden when my car is there?

I did hear that people without front gardens, will still get black bags.

I don't want these bins anyway, I l don't want to look out of my window at dustbins.

No doubt the council will say that there are things that can be done to help the disabled and elderly with these wheelie bins, but are the dustmen going to do it?
