There have been lots of discussions in my household over the last few weeks, what will go where when our new waste/recycling service starts on Monday 8 July. OUT are the black plastic sacks, and IN is the black (residual) wheelie bin, the green wheelie bin, the brown wheelie bin, the food waste bins … What a headache for the ordinary family making sure everyone follows the rules, we don’t what to be fined for doing the wrong thing! So many questions: paper tissues, kitkat wrappers, wrapping, different types of plastic, cardboard and more.
So getting ready for this big change in our lives we are now the proud owners of a new kitchen bin, how stunning. Simplehuman Recycling Butterfly Bin, Stainless Steel, 40L apparently with smudge free finger mark surface ("fingerprint proof touch"), time will tell about that! Purchased from John Lewis and delivered to my local Waitrose supermarket, how convenient. Actually it’s rather brill, more like a piece of art and certainly a talking point! Not so sure about my new rather nasty looking grey plastic food waste slop bin issued by my local council that’s sitting at the side of the kitchen sink. Memo to self: buy something more in keeping with my worktop.
