3 Black Bin Bag Rule 17:41 - Oct 8 with 2576 viewsSgorioFruit

Carmarthenshire council have now enforced this 3 black bag collection rule. So that is 3 bags per fortnight.
I understand this rule has been in place for some time in the Swansea area.
How on earth do you guys manage just to put out 3 bags per fortnight?
And I recycle nearly 3 times as more than what I put in the black bags.

I suppose we'll have less council tax to pay now that the binmen have less work to do?

We manage to get by but there's only 2 of us and a pet in the house.

I can't imagine what it's like if you're a family with 3 kids and pets.

In Cardiff, we're using bins - black bins having been cut in size.

With youngest still requiring nappies, major problem - people don't always realise can request yellow bags for those, so separate to black bin system.

Absolutely! My missus has been putting two regular black bags into one of these bad boys for a couple of years now and they've been taken every time 👍

If you recycle correctly 3 black bags is sufficient for the average sized family.

Indeed.

Just two of us admittedly but one black bag every fortnight is all we ever have.

To the OP, who lives next door? Family of four adults one side of us and a little old lady the other side. The family of four usually put a bag with ours and a bag with hers. Simples.

Funny u should mention that we are a family of 5 with a cat and dog, I'm in baglan and we have a small wheelie bin and we are not allowed to have any extra bags, but we do have big stickers with an E in red if we are to put an extra bag out because of the litter ? But we are only allowed 12 stickers per year ( I think ) I work away from home aswell so when I'm home I spend alot of time back and fore to the tip, and that's a ball ache now, always queing to get in and if you do have any blah bags they search them to see if there's anything in there that shouldn't be, it does my head in

As others have said, it's a piece of piss if you recycle properly.

We can put the small wheelie bin out once a fortnight, most weeks it's not full when it goes out.

The problem in Carmarthenshire is that they limit the number of recycling bags, if you want to more you have to go to the Civic Centre to get them and you also have to give your details. If you need a second additional supply because you are a big family or recycle a lot they ask all sorts of questions and even offer you a meeting with a recycling advisor.!

So how does this work for people who live in say, converted flats? Ie big old houses which have been turned into self contained?

You could have like 10-12 people living in 5 separate ones in a pretty big converted house

I've heared of people on opposite collection days taking bags to each others houses. Also people watch if the neighbour's only put out 2 and then throw an extra one on and or take advantage of empty houses.

Now that seems mental. The whole point is to get people to recycle things that they used to put in black bags. Limiting the number of recycling bags seems counter-productive to me. People who are recycling that much should be championed, not given the third degree.

Is it possibly because of the rural areas they have to cover, meaning sometimes recycling vans are full before finishing route?

What people seem to miss about limiting black bags is that councils are doing everything they can to hit targets. If they don't meet them, they will get fined. Then the same people moaning about black bags and refuse collectors getting a pay cut will moan that other council services have to be cut.

You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.
