Haway man we can't keep having bins because some people have a blue, green and a brown bin.

There should be more communal bins for recycling.
Supermarket car parks should be required by law to provide more recycling bins.
They could even place them at the bottom of your street as long as they are not an eyesore.

Why don't they put recycling bins next to the current ones, wherever they are around the city? They're either serious about protecting the future of the planet or it's all hot air

I was told that all your rubbish gets mixed up anyway and it's the councils that don't take recycling seriously.

I don't think they put their heart in it because at the recycling centre it gives the percentages of recycled waste each month and some have been as low as 50% in the past.

Must be great paying council tax for a service and they do it half 🐴d.

Any chance of getting a rebate, seeing as they don't do their jobs properly?

I've noticed those posters at the entrance and wondered why they can't do 100%.
They tell us where to put metal, wood, clothes etc so why can't it be 100%?

I like the idea of more communal bins but space is at a premium in the built-up areas of Sunderland.
