Is anyone else having this problem? We are frequently returning from work to find recycling is gone but so is the bag or box! Driving me mad - plus Southwark have just made a formerly easy replacement process more difficult...

My blue bag disappeared last week.

It's not the first time.

I don't know if people nick them or if the bin men just leave them on the ground without hooking them over the railings or putting them in the blue box and they blow away.

I gave up trying to get the divider thing in the box to work. They fall out straight away and are never seen again.
It's bad design.

Derby council have a better idea, they have a bin specifically for glass,tin,plastic ,same size as a small wheelie bin.

I lost a blue bag on collection day at the beginning of last year.

I also had a brown garden waste wheelie bin vanish after collection day as well.
