So they've cut back on collections, covered up the bins on the streets and shut the tips

But won't pick up bags left with the bins

We Recycle everything. Like ocd levels. But it is good as you can just ring up request extra recycling tubs and they drop them off so we’ve two of each so never have an issue with them 

they even have giant bins for larger families. Probably 50% bigger than standard. Not sure if they cost or not but a good idea

Yes it’s something that needs addressing, we have 2 green (cardboard) bins which helps

We have blue for glass, tins, plastic etc & grey for paper & card etc to be collected tomorrow & fortnightly

Then green for rubbish & brown for garden waste, collected next Tuesday & fortnightly, but we have to pay £40 a year for the brown bin collections and they're only for 6 months a year.

It’s my brown bin that I’m bothered about

2 cancelled collections 

I pay for busy bins so if no room for cans & bottles just lob them in black 

You're not getting any more brown bins empties in Bury until the crisis is over. (Might get a last one of you're due soon).

A customer of mine up greenmount got an email reply to her enquiry stating just this!

Just seen your subsequent post!

I thought that, but my mum got her green bin emptied last week, two weeks after the previous one, so when it's due.

We effectively live in the next street and we didn't get ours emptied.

I checked the web site, and it doesn't yet specify any actual change, and says put them out as normal, and if they can empty it, they will.
