I agree with Terry Justice on the problems with wheelie bins and the insurance side of things, my insurance company feel a bit unhappy about this situation.

We are now open to identity theft by the weak new orange bags that can easily be seen through.

The truth here is that a roll of the new bags is over three quarters of a pound lighter than a roll of the original dark orange bags, with no explanation why? The white bags for garden waste have gone from �5 for two to �4 each and the rolls are reduced in size here.

We will not have black bags delivered any more but can continue to use them for our waste if we choose instead of having a bin, as stated in the Post recently. This is in effect costing us more for waste disposal while saving the council m money.

We are entitled to a vote in advance of such schemes as we are local tax payers, the loss of the local Forums due to political flatulence, has left us without a voice in public!

Money to employ more bin men, for waste lorries to use more fuel, as they seem to race up and down my street on a Wednesday, and what happened to this wonderful new machine that could sort black bags from orange bags?

Recent TV footage around London boroughs shows what an awful sight all these bins make on the streets, we will start to look like a slum area as far as I am concerned, there is nothing wrong with bin bags if they are used correctly and the contents put in them with food remains wrapped up or better still, use a composter.
