The Blue bin is to have another sibling in October! A Black one for non-recycleable rubbish. Why,if as we are told nearly all rubbish is recycleable do we need a great big bin to put it in, or is it because it won't be emptied very often? It's crazy, 110,000 yes a 110,000! more eyesores littering the streets, drives, back and front gardens. This is the kind of street furniture we really don't need.Homes not suitable for these delightful items will carry on with the existing blue sack or will it be another another colour? You know just for a costly change?

Just wondered why you keep trying to put a halt to my topics? eventhough you eventually came round to my way of thinking on the Seventeen windows fiasco.

Brilliant!  Don't think one could top that analysis - maybe time to draw an end to this topic?

Not one mention of the blue bins on last night's poor excuse for a serious debate on the 'issues' concerning this country.  And why?  Because the big three probably don't have blue bins littering the roads surrounding their ivory towers! 

And talk about style over substance! I know at least two staunch Tories who are now going to vote for the Lib Dem chap because he 'looks friendlier' and 'had a better haircut'.  Sweet lord, if elections can be decided on a few 90 minute programmes, where no-one listens to WHAT is being said, but HOW it is being said, then we, my fellow countrymen, are heading into the brown stuff...

I agree.  I think we should make bins a local issue for our candidates in the General Election, and ask them all what their bin policies are.

The answers might go something like this:

Labour: Until 1997, when the Tories were in power, the people of Hazel Grove only had one bin.  Since New Labour was elected there has been a 400% increase in the number of bins made available to hard-working families in this area. 

Tory: The Conservative Party believes in people organising their own bins.

LibDem: For 65 years, the two main parties have been in control of bins, and look where it has got us.  It's time for a change.

Communist Party: All citizens will have the same bins.

UKIP: British bins.

Green Party: Green bins

BNP: White bins

Having recycling bins in different colours is a good thing. You know which bin to put in your papers/plastic/garden waste and you know which day to put the appropriate bin at the front of your property for collection.
