The reduction in rubbish collections has caused public outrage in Britain. Over 150 councils are switching from weekly to fortnightly refuse collections. Will this improve recycling rates as the government has claimed or will it result in mounting piles of rubbish, putting our health at risk?

Binwatch wants to see your bins! Are they overflowing with rubbish? Attracting local vermin? Or perhaps the new system is resulting in a greener approach to your rubbish disposal.

Send us your bin stories, photos and videos - good or bad!

’Dispatches: Bin Wars’ is on Channel 4 on Mon 24th May at 9pm

Reusable Nappies

Someone told me that 50% of the waste produced by the average 2 adult, 1
baby family is disposable nappies!
Which take hundreds of years to degrade.The solution?
Reusable nappies, and don't say they use more energy in washing and drying.
These are washed at 40 degrees C and are still beautifully clean and white,
they dry in 1hr on the washing line or 10mins in the tumble drier!
They aren't hard to use, no folding and they aren't any more messy, and they
don't cause nappy rash!Go Green use reusable nappies!

Some councils run laundry services for reusable nappies and some even subsidise the purchase of reusable nappies.
Maybe if more councils did this they would be more popular?

I think people are also highly misinformed about how easy they are to use these days.

Use of a tumble drier. Now that's not very green. Look at all the electricity you're using there.

So what are you meant to do when it rains, blow on them until they are dry?!
10mins though, its nothing compared to a normal wash load taking 50mins!

I use adult reusable nappies as I have incontince. I think this is better then 3 nappies per day going to land fill.

What about the energy and eco damage in the making of disposables?
