I hope they're undercover. Weeks of rain got into mine, swelled the contents and broke the lid on one.

I hope you all know that this is just a way of introducing the bin tax, to justify us being forced to pay for our rubbish, like the tv licence people they can go to hell

Bin Tax? They can poke that idea - we're already paying it in our council tax. I'm just back from living in Ireland for a bit and the system there was no council tax but pay per use on bins.... 4euro for recycling bin and 8 euro for general waste bin. Each county has slightly different systems. What it does focus the mind on though is much more awareness of what can be put into the cheaper bin!

I was just saying its great we have the recylcing bins now but not so great that they've been full for 2 weeks and as a result unuseable... and I was only (half) joking about the rates

What Marlon, is wrong with paying for one's rubbish? If it takes a "bin tax" to finance the collection of rubbish, in all its forms, and it isn't already in effect, then it's high time such a tax was introduced. I find it hard to believe there isn't already such a tax in Glasgow. The collection of rubbish is the responsibility of the city, and since that's an expensive operation, then it has to be paid for.

Isn't that what the Council Tax is for?

I'd think Onyirtodd, that one's council tax is one's share in the cost of everything the council has to pay for. If the council pays for having rubbish picked up, then of course, this cost will be spread among the residents of the area serviced by the council. The unfair aspect of this, is that some households create a great deal less rubbish than others, yet have to pay the same portion of their tax towards garbage as those who make a lot more use of the rubbish pick-up. Maybe this pay-as-you-use aspect of Maggie Thacher's poll tax had some merit.
