"Not very nice" I thought.
Oh, they're talking about the RECYCLING bags.
Big thing over here, with more wheelie bins than you can shake a stick at.
We've got bins for organic and inorganic - our waste charge includes 13 emptyings each a year, but they collect at 2 weekly intervals, so if you're rich and/or ecologically irresponsible, you can double that.
Paper goes out every 2 weeks and plastic/metals/glass go in the yellow bag and they're also collected every 2 weeks
Our waste footprint is pretty small, actually.
Organic goes onto the 3 compost heaps and then onto the garden, our inorganic bin goes out every 3 or 4 months (and it's never full, even then - just a bit smelly...) and we take the bottles to the bottle bank.
Wouldn't want the neighbours to know how much we drink, would we?
That wouldn't be a good thing at all.....
