The next time the Tories go on about fortnightly bin collections, remind them about Broadland District Council

Tories, in the main, like to go on about fortnightly bin collections as if they are the work of the devil, the Labour party and/or the Lib Dems, but never seem to acknowledge that plenty of Tory Councils also have such a system.

In Broadland, where the Tories have run a fortnightly collection system for some years now, they are changing the collection days so they are asking us to put out both bins tomorrow. I fear this means that they are going to throw away our recycled rubbish with the ordinary waste, but that's another story. No, my real concern is that the next time our normal landfill waste bin will be collected will be 18 days. Yes, we have to wait two weeks and four days for our next waste collection, Recycled waste will be collected in 11 days time, but recycled waste is generally not stuff that will rot and smell, unlike the nappies and other rubbish in our general waste bin.

I do hope if a General Election is called this week that the Lib Dems will ask why the Tory council is making us all wait longer for our general waste bin to be collected rather than our recycled waste bin. there must be a few votes in that, surely ?

You mean you're not using cloth nappies? Tsk, tsk!

I know, I am an utter disgrace.

Of course, the truly enlightened go for elimination communication. We're planning to give it a go if and when we have another child, but it's safe to say I have qualms...
