I think it's utterly ridiculous that the supposedly Green Conservative party is throwing such a hissy fit over fortnightly bin collections and then promising to make it easier to recycle. What's an easier way to recycle than having fortnightly recycling box collections? With the lower amount of collections, there's an incentive to recycle along with people not having to take the recycling away themselves because it's being picked up for them. There's no reason at all why the majority of people can't make do with a bin collection once a fortnight. Businesses are an exception, I'll grant you, but with the public it's less of an issue. My county has had fortnightly bin collections for over a year now and most people get by. A large proportion of the people who had a problem with it are either too lazy to do anything about it or unwilling to have the bins collected every other week. I love it when people in other parts of the country write in and say that 'it'd cause utter chaos' and 'it's madness' over something like this, when the scheme has been largely successful where I live.

Not like Conwy County is controlled by a Conservative-Plaid coalition anyway. Oh, hang on.
