Half of it is what the postman stuffs through my letter box and never even gets read.
They get paid as you rightly state Longdogs, not only that but in my case I am paying £40 a week into the Council coffers basically for just a quarter of one bin to be emptied weekly and having to sort the recycling too!
Council Tax is now my biggest weekly outgoing, it costs as much if not more than my food! Get all the recycling sorted countrywide and Council Tax might, just might go down from the rip-off levels it's now at!
