I've written to Cllr Eller:-

I do not support your introduction of Wheelie Bins on the pretext of improving recycling.   The Council appears to have done no prior research, nor consulted with any local community or local councillors before embarking on these pilot schemes to trial Wheelie Bins.

As an unpaid refuse sorter and with some inconvenience, I and majority of my neighbours, recycle using these LBH issued bins and bags each week.
            Green Box -  glass bottles/jars/tins/tinfoil/cardboard/etc;
Green Caddy - food waste;
Blue Bag - paper;
White Bag - plastics;
Green Bag - garden waste

My own non-recycleable household rubbish barely fills a single, Sainsbury’s plastic carrier bag each week.   That’s ONLY FIFTY-TWO, underfilled, Sainsbury’s plastic carrier bags A YEAR!
Please would you explain:-
1/ why I’d need a Wheelie Bin for a single, underfilled, Sainsbury’s plastic bag per week? (Or a single black refuse sack for that matter!)
2/ what else am I supposed to put in this huge Wheelie Bin bag each week to make it viable?  
3/ why is a Wheelie Bin containing a single, underfilled, Sainsbury’s plastic bag helping with recycling?
4/ why is it economic to issue people like me with an expensive and un-necessary Wheelie Bin?
5/ where exactly do you suggest I keep this Wheelie Bin?   ( I don’t want it beside my front door or in my hall!)
6/ is there roadside space between parked cars for a Wheelie Bin to be brought to the special collection vehicle?

It is a complete waste of the tax payers’ money to issue Wheelie Bins to people who already recycle.   Under these circumstances, there’d be a great temptation to fill the Wheelie Bin with ALL rubbish and jettison the cumbersome recycling boxes & bags.   This, of course, Cllr Eller, would have the very opposite effect to your stated aim of improving recycling!

Additionally, no one at LBH seems to have examined the logistics of WHERE TO KEEP THE WHEELIE BIN?   To have them standing on the pavements 24/7 hardly enhances the street scene.   They’d also be a  magnate for all sorts of flytipping.

Black refuse bags left out on the pavements get ripped open because people are not recycling.   Give them a Wheelie Bin and they will still not recycle, they’ll just dump their bag, if you’re lucky, could well be loose food and rubbish, into the Wheelie Bin – very  nice, smelly, fly-ridden and unhygienic – and certainly not recycling.

I suggest you immediately cancel these pilot schemes.   Do some proper consultation and research and re-think the entire issue before spending our Council Taxes on special collection vehicles and useless Wheelie Bins, that far from increasing recycling will have the reverse effect.

Yours sincerely

Jennifer Selig
