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

I wonder if any of you can beat Amber Valley in Derbyshire�s recycling
scheme for stupidity? We have a normal domestic bin, a Yellow box for
glass, an Orange box for cans and foil, a Blue bag for Paper and finally
an Orange bag for cardboard! We do not recycle plastic as it is bulky
and they do not get much money per tonne yet we are still expected to
have a fortnightly collection. I do not know who thought of this system
for recycling but it doesn�t work; we need the domestic bin, recycling
bin and box for glass as most other councils have opted for if people
are ever going to be serious about recycling.

could you wash all cans and bottles says:

Hi your ouncil will not recycle any of your rubbish,they sell it to companys that do and make big profits.
We are all being conned to sort it and present it clean,so it can be processed for max profit.
Everyone is missing the point,we should not have to pay them,they should pay us,remember a few years ago when tramps used to collect beer cans to get a few bob from the scrap merchants.
Well they dont do it anymore because the scrap merchants have put big metal containers in our supermarket car parks,and we fill it up for them free,its the same with paper,bottles and the rest.
The only industries that get their raw material free is recycling,we all want to save the world,but we should not be taken for fools.
Please think about this before its to late
i have just heard that ony Blair is going into recycling,wants to retire early.
Goodnight.
