And my bin and hopefully the sticker when it arrives will only be put out on the morning for collection and otherwise kept safely locked up. And no, no, no, don;t put it in your green bin waste - that's just being irresponsible. Be a bit more positive!I hadn't heard about this until now. What an excellently thought through way of increasing fly tipping. Soon, every street corner and street bin will be overflowing with grass cuttings, twigs, leaves and hedge clippings. I would expect your sticker and/or bin to soon vanish as someone else recycles your payment for their benefit. The obvious solution being to just put it in the ordinary waste.

My collection day is Monday so I'll be curious to see what happens.Do Southwark collect all year round ? In Derbyshire was charging forty pounds for six months! They have now scrapped the charge , don't know if they now collect the whole year, lots of gardens up here!
