I believe they do migrate northwards for the summer.
Got my new bin calender this morning, think it'll be the last physical one sent out. Says at the bottom you'll need to check online from the end of the year for updates, which is a shame as it was handedly positioned on the wall, still, only a few days a year I need to check I guess.
I'd have hoped, by now, they'd have an online version that could easily be imported into individuals' own electronic calendars, such as this one: https://www.falkirk.gov.uk/services...ehold-waste/bin-ical-feed.aspx?uprn=136040475
Come on, give the BC a chance, they are doing their best to move into the 20th century.
Did they not have an app like before they started sending paper one's out ?
Had ours today too, exciting stuff.
Thankfully I've not had a naughty note on my blue bin for a while, I do now wonder if it was because I didn't but the card bag out as it was only half full....
We have a an odd thing where are bins are actually collected the opposite to what the calendar says, we assume because they are on a lane at back of a street where it differs.(who knows if that will still be the case). The rest of my friends I can easily ask live further up the street and have a different bin day, but ours has moved so that might now be rectified. This is almost exciting (it's not)
I used to do a garden for a couple that lived in the corner house on the junction of a small close and a much more 'major' road. The front door was on the main road, where their house 'officially' was, but their drive was entered via the close. For some weird reason, the close of just ten houses, was collected on a Monday, and the main road on a Tuesday. For a year, we put the brown bin out on a Sunday night in the close, then filled it up again on Monday afternoon and put it out again on the main road.
It was a small 'victory', but I still remember it with great pleasure.
Somebody spotted the futility of their sequence and it was altered - after we had ceased to have need of it, though.
Similar situation here in Bednall.
Most houses get collected on a Tuesday but there is one little road of about 10 houses and they get collected on a Monday.
For such a small village it doesn’t make any sense to have two different delivery days.
We might have made use of our advantageous pickup situation from time to time, the thrill of doing so is palpable...
I'm still pissed off that they don't collect plant milk cartons, tetrapak. Backward this council
The thought of potentially being able to get both recycling and waste picked up every a week is thrilling
It does seem like it's the easiest type of recycling only which is done on doorstep collections. I think (but not 100% sure) that the recycling centre will accept those type of cartons.
Thanks, yes the tip will take them but we have to store them until we have a boot full to make it worth the trip and without a garage to store them in this is difficult.
I didn't notice it until I saw people spark up on Facebook but they will be charging £36 per year for brown bin collections in 2021....
I don't mind paying this (especially as households can double up) but you'd think people's liberty was being taken away looking at some of the comments...
Yep can understand that. They should be something you can put in the blue bin.
Surely we already pay to have our bins emptied within the council tax charge?
All these changes are only since Veolia have been collecting waste. Seems to me that they are the ones who want paying more for providing the same service (or less) than Biffa did.
Councils are getting less government funding. Therefore our income tax should reduce and our council tax go up. It's not going to though, and we'll keep moaning about services being cut.
What you pay for collection is for normal rubbish. It doesn't include garden collection...
Many householders are left "outraged" but will continue to vote Conservative, spectaculaly failing to make the connection! Numpties!
