    So if I sign up and throw all my waste in the neighbours bins, come collection day. My bins empty, I'm in the money :)

    we put the bags out, we don't have a wheelie bin..
    how will they do it in high rise blocks where the rubbish goes down the chute?

    I do think it fair that a family of four gets charged more than me, a lone guy.. I put out a full bin bag every 2 weeks whereas the family next door put out 2-3 full bags a week...

    I take your point Col but if they're living in the same sort of property next door then they'll be paying the same Council Tax as you anyway regardless of how many live there. Not that I wish to see a return to the flamin Poll Tax!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    but that's my point, why should I pay the same as them and only get 1/4 of the service?

    That's what I thought and I don't see how ColJack is paying the same council tax as the family of four :confused:

    So a family of four will have to pay extra again for more rubbish

    IMO fly tipping and bonfire will go up :rolleyes:

    i doubt if any rewards will make it worth "cheating"
    i would expect say £10 per 6 months so not worth the time or effort off 13 trips to the tip assuming its fortnightly

    The whole thing is fraught with problems not least those mentioned & councils already have the means to stop you having “excessive” bonfires. Our bins here in South Norfolk are already micro-chipped & they were trialling the system around 18 months ago I think. The system here, however, proved so unreliable & time consuming they had to abandon the test & any hope of introducing it for the time being :LOL: but I suspect it will only be a matter of time. :cry:
