Councils waste £200m on rubbish bins of all colours

15th Jul 2014

This comes as no surprise to us, but The Times is today reporting that councils are wasting £200,000,000.00 a year of our money on different colour bins. They probably neglect to mention this when they send every household a glossy brochure crowing about how clever they have been in managing to collect your waste.  

Given the value of the now segregated recyclables,  we’re surprised that an enterprising waste collector hasn’t set up an alternative to the local authority monopoly on  waste collections;  it won’t be any of the big players -  Biffa,  Sita etc,  their all too well embedded with the local authorities,  but as it becomes increasingly clear that the present system is costing us too much ,  the market will eventually provide remedy.
