It is an absolute joke

New rules which mean you're only allowed to use the tip on average once a week are set to be introduced across Greater Manchester next year.

And if you're a van driver, you'll only be able to go once a month.

Automatic number plate recognition cameras will be used to log drivers' details and keep track of how many visits people have made.
From February, there will be limits on how many times you can go to the tip

I know it may ruffle feathers when i say this..... “blame them climate change muppets for it”
All in the name of cutting back on waste, recycling before we all die in 10 years.
I remember bin men used to walk up your driveway and throw the bin over there shoulder, empty it then bring it back to property. (ONCE A WEEK)
Now you have bring the bin out of your property. You have to recycle it also.
(EVERY TWO WEEKS)

I would love to know how much money councils make from recycled materials. As your property rates never go down annually.
No doubt if you go to dump more than once a week it will cost you money.
As they already made it that your personal rubbish bin is filled up well before the two weeks.

But we have to do our bit for the environment mate, we have not got long left before the earth is doomed.
You might have to dig deep in your wallet to prevent it and help the council out, to prevent waste going into landfill.
😦

here in birmingham...we can go to local tip, but if they see yiu with a van, they ask to see your permit...as for houshold cllections, we use to have ,from time to time a bulk refuse collection, all heavy household rubbish or any kind of rubbish, nicely packed was collected..sadly thats gone. i think the council in brum charge £35 to collect a certain number of houshold rubbish item, from the kerbside....no wonder theres loads of rubbish dumped where i live..the srteets and roads are a disgrace and dirty, thanks birmingham city council , also the ignorant, mindless people that live here in my area. From a nice area when i bougt a house here, its gone to a complete and utter shithole...i dont even venture outside anymore once i come from work..unless i have to..its fooking disgusting..

I remember a few years ago reading about bins being 'microchipped' by councils.
Surely the only reason for this is to charge people according to the amount of rubbish they send to landfill.
