I’ve bin tagged!

I read in your December magazine about Bromsgrove District Council’s plan to tag the bins of people who don’t recycle properly, and I thought I would share my recent experience.

During the recent cold weather, I left my brown bin of garden waste out for the final collection of the year, and when I returned home I found a tag on it.

It said that the bin could not be fully emptied because the bottom half of its contents were frozen solid – but that the bin men would come back to collect it the following week instead!

This is really good service, especially since the brown bin collection has to be paid for by residents.
