If it's a house You live in, and not low rise flats where it's a shared bin, plus not too much garden waste...I guess it's ok ??

If they won't give u a brown bin just start burning it and see how fast you get given a bin then.

Hi I had a similar problem where other houses around me had Brown Bins except us. The bin lorry had to drive past our house to collect the Brown Bins from the other streets.

This is the reply I got from the council:
Thank you for taking the time to contact Wirral Council to request a separate garden waste collection from your road.

The Waste and Recycling team have carried out a full analysis of the garden waste collection service. This involved an assessment of the borough to identify areas and roads where the properties do have gardens but are not on the service. This information was passed to our Garden Waste Collection Contractor, Biffa, to assess the additional operational requirements and work out the most efficient way of expanding the service to the additional properties. It is highly likely that this will require Biffa to completely restructure the service, meaning many existing customers will have collection day changes and routes the trucks currently work to will change.

After this work has been completed we can determine whether we are able to service all the additional properties with existing resources. If we can expand the service at no additional revenue cost to the Council then we would expect to roll out brown garden waste bins to new and additional properties towards the end of February 2012, with a view to starting collections from 1st April 2012. Should this be the case and agreed by Council, then you will receive pre-delivery leaflets early next year.

However, if there were an annual revenue cost to expanding the service, then the Council would consider the request for additional funding as part of the 2012/13 budget setting process, which would include public consultation. Even if the funding was approved, this would mean that the earliest the scheme could be expanded would be Spring 2013. In the event that additional revenue is required, Elected Members and Chief Officers involved in the decision making process will be informed of all complaints that have been made from residents waiting to join the scheme.

In the meamtime, garden waste can be put into your green refuse bin for collection. If you or anyone living at your property has access to a vehicle, you can take also garden waste to any of the Household Waste Recycling Centres:

Bidston Moss, Wallasey Bridge Road, Birkenhead
Greenbank Road, West Kirby
Mount Road, Clatterbridge

If you have any further queries regarding the waste and recycling service, please do not hesitate to contact Streetscene on 606-2004.

It suggests putting the waste in the Green Bins. I have previously done as they suggested, by putting garden waste in our green bin, only for the bin to be left un-emptied due to there being garden waste in it!

A few months later though we now have two Brown Bins - persistance does pay off.
