Bin Brother - Bin Blight

Oh dear another directive from our EU overlords that I fear will not go down too well in this country.

Lord de Mauley, a minister in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, recently told local authorities that they would be required to follow new EU guidance which requires homes to separate waste more efficiently.

Currently councils allow (as per Lord de Mauley quoted in the Telegraph) "co-mingled collections of recyclates". However, the revised Waste Framework Directive, that comes into force on January 1 2015, will cause an increase in "bin blight"; as people will be forced to separate their waste even more "precisely" than they do now.
Where waste paper, metal, plastic or glass has been collected separately all reasonable steps must be taken to keep that stream separate from other waste streams wherever this is necessary to provide high quality recyclates.

I look to local authorities actively to address these problems, by the effective implementation of the new regulations and by tackling problems with operating practices.
How many more bins are we going to need?

  1. It's all very well separating things out before collection, but how often do we hear that's a waste of time, as many of these waste "streams" are simply thrown in the same containers at the depots?

    For many years our local supermarket had the glass recycling bins divided into clear, green and brown/mixed. But when the emptying lorry turned up, the last two went into the same hopper! This wasn't obvious from street level, but the is site located below an embankment surrounding the store, and I watched the process from high enough to see there were only 2 bins on the vehicle...
