I have now received my information pack on the wheelie bins and lo and behold, as I warned everyone before, there on the fridge magnet that you need a magnifying glass to read is the fact that the council will not take any black bags placed beside your bin. Didn't I tell you so?

So you can have approximately two black bags full of rubbish, as these bins will not take any more than that. And if you do have more then tough, you will have to take them to the tip or keep them for another week and hope it fits in then.

You also cannot have a bigger bin unless there are five residents in the house. So for those pro-wheelie bin people, you have made a rod for your own back by just letting the council walk over you.

I warned you this would happen and it has. I also warned that in time they will make it a two-weekly collection and this will be the next thing you hear.

Well I'm sorry but you deserve all you get for letting the council get away with this enforced policy.

Had more people made the slightest effort to complain to the council about this it would not have happened. But no, they are just too lazy to even bother.

Well, thanks for that. Now we all have to suffer these eyesores, not to mention a weekly trip to the tip if you have extra rubbish.
