yes they are, one bin per house, reguardless of size or ammount of pepole living there. I dispose of my own rubbish via the tip and I dont get a discount, funny the way it only works one way.

When I saw this thread, I thought from the title, you meant council workers were walking around knocking over bins for no reason lol.

The Brown bin is optional depending where you live.

I thought that to. There are 6 of us living in the house and when I enquired about getting another green bin they said I would have to pay £27.00 for one. You can only get a free bin if there is more than 6 people.

Can't you ask for a large bin - or have they stopped them?

I can understand a charge for another green bin but 1 bin is hardly enough for a small household per fortnight never mind a large family!

You binmen are paid well too high for my liking! Picking and choosing wether or not to take a bin coz it's 'too heavy'. Get off ya fat asses and do some work for those 'overpaid' wages of yours!

Bring back the old style bins & binmen, at least they were emptied every week and the binmen didn't whine about how 'heavy'' they were!!!

This is why I dont see the point in the sensus. It is ment to be a form to fill out so the council/gov know how many people there are etc in one home. If they can see that only one person lives in that home then why not charge them less council tax but only empty their bin once every 2-3 weeks. prob be to awarkward for them to get their heads around givin they fail to do it on a weekly basis.

And they took it onto your drive, really piss's me off, especially when you are going down a narrow road, have to hung the kerb and mangage to blast your wing mirror off on a bin placed too close to the kirbside. I've replace 3 on my van now as a result grrrrrrrrrrrr

The census information is confidential - it cannot not be used to identify details about individuals or individual properties. Its used to measure trends.

Government policy is that you have a right to have your bins collected once a week, just over 50% of councils are now in breach of that policy.

I thought it was actually done at Widnes with Lockeed-Martin as the scanning contractor. Skunk Works is Lockheed-Martins brand name for the system - it was used in the USA census.

There should be two separate systems, one is for checking an individual property has returned a census, the other for the correlation of data. It should not be possible for the data system to identify an address - though I haven't found specific details that this is the case.
