The City of Edinburgh council have made lots of changes recently for waste collection from residential areas. New food waste caddys, general waste collections from weekly to fortnightly, all in a bid to get people recycling more. However, they have brought in this policy now (which I wasn't even aware of, no letter, email) that if your green general waste bin lid isn't fully closed, they will not take away the waste, and leave a nice little tag on your bin on recycling tips. I am not on Facebook, but my wife is and there are lots of people up in arms about this. This is a photo of someones bin which wasn't collected: It's an absolutely ludicrous, braindead, moronic policy. Fair enough if there are people who clearly do not recycle, but the above example just takes the ****. What do they hope to achieve? That people will begin to recycle when they can't see out there window for a mountain of black bin bags? Has anyone else's council adopted this policy?
