councils scrap weekly bin collections is skip hire the answer

25 Jul 2012

Just over half of all councils in England have scrapped weekly bin collections and now collect the rubbish fortnightly.

Last year, Local Government secretary Eric Pickles announced plans for a £250 million fund to pay councils to revert to weekly collections – something that he described as a “basic right”.

However, it has been revealed that most councils across England have reverted to fortnightly collections – or are, at least, planning to – leaving some residents worrying about their overflowing bins.

Could skip hire be the answer for the country’s waste collection problem?
