n October people in girvan will have 6 wheelie bins,and the green bin will be empied every 3 wks.where are we going to put all these bins.

This takes me back to the Japanese solution
In Japanese cities the rubbish is collected every day. The citizens
are asked to separate out their rubbish each day ready for collection.
Everything is clearly marked with a recycling symbol, to make sure
the customer knows what is what. It cost them nothing for collection.
How? Well the rubbish collection is put out to tender. Private
companies bid for the pleasure of collecting your rubbish. They
actually pay the Municipality. They then, in turn, make their profit
from the recycling of plastics, glass, paper etc.
Why is the same system not possible in this country? It would ease
some of the burden on the council tax payer and help to keep the
streets cleaner.
Where there is muck there is money and the councils should, perhaps,
be cashing in.
