An­other scheme in­volv­ing house­hold rub­bish… Next year, the coun­cil in Guernsey is go­ing to charge house­holds for the num­ber of bin bags they leave out to be col­lected.

Coun­cils in the UK have tried ev­ery­thing, from pro­vid­ing a huge se­lec­tion of con­tain­ers for rub­bish, to re­duc­ing col­lec­tions to ev­ery three weeks.

Why don’t the coun­cils on the Con­ti­nent have the same prob­lems with their rub­bish? Most are col­lected weekly. One even has a daily col­lec­tion. Per­haps our coun­cil­lors should visit some Euro­pean coun­tries to learn the se­cret of their suc­cess?

And here’s a thought – use the rub­bish to fill all those pot­holes! Colin Bower, Not­ting­ham
