Yep, rubbish collections are now fortnightly, with a recycling collection every other fortnight.
I'm a huge fan of recycling, and we should be doing more, but this policy is a disaster, strikes or no. There's too frequently a bank holiday, or some problem with the collection, and that's it, you've had no rubbish collection for a month. With the amount of trade waste that ends up in everyone's bins anyway (does anyone actually know any local shop that gets rid of its own rubbish?), it's all starting to overflow.
As far as 'no black sacks will be collected' - that's a very special kind of idiocy eh?
