New fortnightly recycling collection

Stephen R in Forest Gate
Can't believe after all the recent years of propaganda to encourage us to recycle more, that Newham council have taken the decision to drop weekly collection of the recycling bins (but keeping weekly collection of non-recycling bins).

During the trial of fortnightly collection earlier last year, we found our recycling bin overflowing, whilst the "normal" bin would often just have 1 bag of rubbish in it. This meant putting the excess recycling into the non-recycling bin which just makes a mockery of the whole recycling idea!

So, at the time of the trial I raised this matter with Newham council, to be told that most people were fine with this new schedule. This is disappointing to say the least. Just wondered what other residents thought about this....
