It's interesting that our dustbin is the smaller of the ones available from the local authority - and it is rarely full even on a fortnightly collection. Our neighbours have bins twice the capacity of ours and seem to complain that the collection is so infrequent.....
Our recycling bin is also collected fortnightly and is rarely full. Others leave additional boxes, etc. and get upset when they're refused. The one bin that is always full is our garden waste bin.... but luckily they have now doubled the size of that (for a mere £52 a year extra
I agree about the non-recyclable black plastic trays - I can't see why a recyclable version is not used, but equally I ate the last of my fruit-pots yesterday. These have no sugar so are good as a supplement, but come in individual plastic pots with a plastic foil closure.... hard to see how they'll find a replacement for that.
