The bin men are currewntly ignoring anyone who has a second bin.
If you have 2 bins and put them out, chances are you are only going to get one emptied.
If you ask why to your local bin man you'll get various reasons but the general one is they are no longer aloowed to by the council. Maybe they have decided the money they will save on not collecting a 2nd bin will outway the money spent cleaning up the fly tipping they will generate this summer. Then again the days when the bin men cleaned up anything they spilled are well gone.
Their are people out they who need two bins through having disabled members of there household etc who are now being put through the ringer by these idiots who are elected to serve them.
Remember you Tips come christmas.., oh and get some fly spray

well said binmen make so much mess, remember when binmen actually picked up a bin on their shoulders, heaven forbid they had to stoop to clean their mess,

We have 2 green bins. We received a hand delivered letter in early April with a form to fill in and post back before 11 May to authorize the second bin.We have since had both bins emptied with no problems...

well lets see what percentage you fall into coz like i say i know people with handicaped children who have been on a list for having two bins and have suddenly been getting one bin left empty. So unless you work for the council or bifa you've been blessed with a big magic f***off wand and should be thinking about tonights lottery

I think we are pretty lucky with the bin service on Wirral, in lots of other places they wont empty your bin if the lid is not closed properly, if it is too heavy, not placed with handle facing the right way etc,and its not the binmens fault blame those that give the instructions.

We got a letter a few weeks ago suggesting we were leaving 2 bins out.

Next door to us is a lane with a bungalow down there, so their bin and our bin are together on bin day. Its easy to see how it may have been misunderstood that we had 2 bins, but its also very easy to see who owned the 2 bins.

...id love to know what jobsworth they pay to spot these things....

A quick call to the council however, and it was all cleared up, with the woman on the other end of the phone not really understanding why this had been flagged and why the person who spotted it and raised the possible issue hadnt used their common sense and reasoned it all out.

We must be lucky here in New Brighton, as the house next door to me has two bins that are always emptied. One day a week we have the brush truck that sweeps up the gutters & after the bins are emptied, there is a man who comes round & picks up any litter in the road.

It looks like this new rule has come into play starting this week so for those of you who are not due to have your green bins emptied until next week, this is when you will see this rule start for you and your area.
Casper, these things do happen in Wirral, it solely depends on the mood and attitude of the bin men, some are lenient and empty your bin regardless, some are harsh and will issue you with a warning sticker on your unemptied bin.
Over the course of the 2 weeks biffa's "green bin crew" start at one end of the Wirral and over a 2 week period make their way too another so we are all talking about and share the same bin men.

I was wondering why they hadn't emptied mine? I've just moved into my address and there was two bins already there so I've filled them because I was decorating. The first time was a month ago and I thought because of the bank holiday that I had missed the correct day but they were both ignored Monday just gone as well. Think it's time to phone the council! confused

I rang the council, and they told me that because I've got two bins that are full, I might have to empty one into a big bin bag and leave it next to the other full bin on collection day? My response to this was, "This will be harder for the binmen to handle and get into the bin wagon than two full bins". They then told me that because of their new "two bin policy" they couldn't empty two bins for my address?

I wonder if Biffa signed a contract with the council for one bin per household, thinking about it, if thousands of households put out extra bins, that's an awful lot of work Biffa are not getting paid for, what other businesses would do extra work free of charge.
