Just wondering who owns the wheelie bins, the council or the householder. When the council stop collecting the green garden waste I was thinking of turning the wheelie bin into a water butt but don't want to just yet they decide to take them back.
Is the Wirral going to be littered with unused brown wheelie bins?
Any ideas anyone?

i think its the household as if you want a new one you have to pay the council 25 so in theory your buying it off them!!

From the Council:
"In August, the Council will notify non-subscribers to arrange for your bin to be removed. You may choose to keep your brown bin in case you decide to sign up in the future"
If your bin is removed, and you then decide to subscribe to the scheme in the future you would need to purchase a new bin at a cost of 37.00"

One wonders what the unit cost per bin is to the council??

You can bet your bottom dollar that they'll be trying to make a very handsome profit on the deal. The whole thing stinks more than that lovely liquor at the bottom of the bin on a hot day!!

My understanding always was, that councils are to be 'non profit' making....
I suppose the extra would be put down to delivery charges!! Maybe those returned wil be recycled and addtional profit can be made, as they will have originally been paid for through our council tax.
THey could always bring back the garden waste bags...remember them?

Obviously not Moonstar,,,, smile

Just found this and although it is a different council and 2011, it is FOI on garden waste. Cost per household per annum ..13
So far I have been unable to find the same for Wirral. Maybe someone else might be able to.

they are not getting my brown bin as I had to purchase one off them when I moved here as we never had one.
also I will not be paying for them to collect my garden waste it will either be taken to the tip or added to my green bin.
don't see why we have to pay for this service when council tax is very high

I didn't mean to flog the subject of why we should pay for our green waste to be collected, I was just curious about what happens afterwards. I was starting to think about what use I could put our spare wheelie bin to but thought I should wait until certain that the council will not take them back. It got me thinking about what was going to happen to all the unused brown wheelie bins. People are not going to want them on their drives if they're not going to be emptied. I wondered if the council would sell them to one of the companies such as http://www.avantiplasticrecycling.co.uk/services/wheelie-bins/, who recycle them and make some extra money.
Just my little brain having a ponder.

We're all doing plenty of pondering just now Uffda, especially as the lunatics are running the Council - who is running the asylum?
