Just seen on new small bin it says garden waste. Obv can't fit much in but surely they can't refuse to take garden waste if in it?

I emailed enviroment@southwark.gov.uk to ask, attaching a photo of my sticker. Alternatively, I think some ED-ers have spares!

I have my sticker affixed to large Brown Bin. but no Outside Food Caddie.
I had a bag of food waste and waited for Collectors to come up my road.

Had a good chat with the Bin man yesterday about where to put my food waste.
He told me to put it in the BIG Brown Bin.
I explained that Southwark Council had told me NOT to do that as it would Contaminate the bin.
I've been using it for food for Years.
The Bin Man said "YES, I've been collecting it for Years."
He said Southwark Council Management are just being Bloody Minded.
Garden Waste and food waste is all going in the Same Dust Cart.

It would seem that Some Collectors are also being Bloody Minded or feel threatened my Management
if they do not abide by management rules.

The whole thing is a Mess. How many other industries suffer from overpaid Management teams sitting
in the Boardrooms with little knowledge of what goes on out in the field,

Countrlass22: Similar situation to you, I also had the bin man yesterday reading me the riot act about how I had to subscribe or loose the bin. I told him it was a cheek imposing this policy which is against the government recommendations nd I rather loose the bin than play their scare tactic games. How Southwark council are imposing this with no thought of the long term consiqence to the service only for the point of making money becaue they have sold all their land to private investors with no long term revenue, and by failing to maintain their housing properties they are facing high compensation legal battles from thousands of residents. He repeatedly defended their decision but as I reminded him, this is the people at the top bringing this in yet its the guys on the front line who have to suffer the fall out effects. His defending example was that Thames Water done the same to all Southwark residents but as I said, water is a service each of us cannot live without. Which bin to put your garden waste in to on the other hand.....

This is the most stupid idea they have come up with so far. What really do they think will happen? People will not pay and will bag all their garden waste and chucj ibn the green bin. Recycling rates will drop for the Borough. Over time they will have no choice but to reverse this decision.

Another stupid money making scheme just like the controlled parking which is still ongoing!

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by singalto June 26, 12:05PM

If only a tiny number of people have signed up to the scheme I fail to see how it will make any money at all!

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by matthew123 June 26, 12:16PM

I suspect the council will not have enough people signed up and will then not be able to sustain weekly collection of garden waste as I'd imagine the previous budget for this collection has already been reallocated.

Our large food waste caddy delivered today - with a smaller caddy inside it. We do not generate sufficient garden waste to warrant brown bin which we still have!

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by sally buying June 26, 04:06PM

I do not understand why people say large food caddy, I road tested it it takes only 2X 25 litre bags.2
1 fits the very small caddy. What will happen if you produce more than 2 bags?

Badly thought out scheme from start to finish

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by Countrlass22 June 26, 04:08PM

Well that's daft guess want us compost everything.
Definitely throw over 2 bags week.
Havnt got ours they lost order had re order

I wrote to Eleanor Kelly, Chief Executive of the council on 29th May, to ask some questions about this extra tax and the consequences. I sent the letter recorded delivery so I have proof that it was received on 30th May. She has duly ignored me and my many questions. On 25th June I email her and copied Peter John, Chief Councillor of Southwark asking for a reply, again I have received no reply! Today I have again emailed them both asking for an acknowledgement of my email by the end of today, let's see if I get any reply. I have told them both that failing to get an acknowledgement I would raise the matter to our MP Harriet Harman. Many people in our street and in the area, including myself, have not paid for this extra tax.
I attach a copy of the letter (file and picture of it), I have taken. off my name and email address from the file, I invite you to email it again...

I've had one of the little food waste caddies for several years sitting next to my recycling boxes, which I've never used and never will. Another one arrived today, which I didn't order. What a waste of money!

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by singalto June 29, 07:41AM

I finally got my small and large food caddies and, as someone has pointed out, the large food caddie states that it is for food AND garden waste! How does that make any sense?

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by Penguin68 June 29, 08:07AM

How does that make any sense? None, save that they are obviously using up old stock, which is surely a good thing as it is both 'green' and economical - something we rarely seem to see from this council.

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by herne hilly June 29, 09:50PM

I ordered the food caddie a few months back and got one that just said food waste.
The one my mum has had for years says food waste and garden waste - but not sure what you could fit in it.
I saw some stickers down my road and the waste of plastic tags to sell the subscription.
One of the stickers i saw already had a curled edge, maybe the heat melted the glue.
They will have to start collecting them up soon

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?
Posted by singalto June 29, 10:08PM

Here hilly, your mum must have a caddie from new stock as mine says food and garden!

messageRe: Brown bin collection - Council starting to charge?

Food and garden waste they didn't change it's wording lol
