The reduction in rubbish collections has caused public outrage in Britain. Over 150 councils are switching from weekly to fortnightly refuse collections. Will this improve recycling rates as the government has claimed or will it result in mounting piles of rubbish, putting our health at risk?

Binwatch wants to see your bins! Are they overflowing with rubbish? Attracting local vermin? Or perhaps the new system is resulting in a greener approach to your rubbish disposal.

Send us your bin stories, photos and videos - good or bad!

Neighbours rubbish

Since my neighbours had an extension built, they have decided to use the
area between my house and theirs as a tip thus preventing any clutter
being visiable to themselves. Not only are their bins overflowing, but I
am subjected to excess packaging, old rabbit hutches, bikes and piles of
bricks. These are the views from my front door and driveway. The rubbish
has increased since these were taken.I have written to them and invited
them round to show them what I have to look at each day, however the
situation became so intolerable that I have paid ?950 to have a 6' fence
errected between the two houses. I thought this would rectify the
problem, but instead they have piled up more and more rubbish so it is
now visible even with the fence. The smell at my front door is
unbearable so I am dreading the summer months when I shall be unable to
open my windows. I too phoned Environmental Health, who stated that as
long as the rubbish was on their land there was nothing they could do
about it. We have weekly collections, so what is going to happen when
our local council decides on a fortnightly collection service?
