I believe it's going to be at least 12 months before the black bins are delivered, they want to see how the recycle bins are accepted first.

I saw the council delivering rolls of blue bin bags today! Has someone forgot to inform them that they are supposed to be delivering new bins not bags!  ???

Anyone heard any more about the wheelie bins yet? I ran out of the bags ages ago and have had no more delivered, is this cause they're 'rolling' out the new bins soon?

2 years ago, when I last stayed in Marple, I was amazed at how you all cope with the little bins and bags. I left in 1982 and have been back staying in Marple several times and not much has changed. You all need Wheelie bins. We have had them in Australia for a long time now. You have one for household rubbish, garden rubbish and paper, cardboard and plastic rubbish. We have a charge for this in the council rates but it is quite minimal. We also have large household goods(ie old washing machines,households good,etc) collected twice a year. We are encouraged to recycle as much as possible. People can take any extra rubbish to the council tip for a fee, but most find we don't need to now. I noticed someone mentioned them in 2009/2010,seems a long way away

Has anyone run out yet?

just interested my roll is starting to shrink a bit  ::)

If you need to put out more than one bag you can use a black one - I've been doing that without any problems, and so have my neighbours.

Well you are lucky that the foxes don't rip the blue bags - the badger here loves them, and the magpies have a good go too!  Plus the odd marauding cat, of course.

Actually I am doing Ok with them - occasionally have to put out a second bag but the tranparency does make me think more about what I am putting into the bag. It has led to way more trips to the tip though to get rid of recycling. Never had any problems with ripped bags either, and there are urban foxes round here, but I do spray my bin with disinfectant each week so maybe the small puts them off?

My big gripe with the Green bins was the size of them and their unsuitability for small terraced houses if waste is to be collected from the front of the property. I have been in Cheadle Hulme recently and they have new blue wheelies which I think are for plastic and cardboard that are really dinky. I wouldn't object to something that size - anyone know when we are likely to get them?

Whenever I have any food scraps to put in the bags I spray them with disenfectant before putting in the bag this keeps the cats away.

No definitely not magpies - we have a cat in our neighbourhood who not only terrorises our cat but sits boldly on the top of the blue bag and rips away at it.  We are usually so careful as well with wrapping up food scraps etc.

Denise.. are you sure its not magpies?  They wait for the bags to be put out on our street then all descend en masse.... chasing all cats away!!

I think you can leave the tops on as it doesn't say on the side that they have to be removed and they are photographed with the tops on.  The magazine from the council yesterday implied that once wheelie bins are introduced in 2009/10 they will be collecting tetrapak cartons as well as plastic and card.
