Am up in Derby at the moment, after the strike residents have been told that their rubbish will not be collected for another fortnight, meaning the rubbish will have been festering in bins for a month, oh yes and when they finally arrive if bins are full, no black sacks will be collected. But if they like to take their rubbish to a skip for one day only nearly three miles away they can deposit them there!

No buses run by that spot of course and if you have no car...I suspect there will be loads of bonfires!

Has Southwark got a similar policy like that at the moment?

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?

All our recycling bins are totally overally full and spilling out everywhere...

Our bins are emptied weekly on Wednesdays so obviously weren't done this week, and are now overflowing. Not helped by some idiot fly tipping their old furniture into our bin bay!
