Quite so. However, the old saying "There's no smoke without fire" does come to mind.
Remember, if there's a way to impose a charge, it'll be found :(
I can't help but think that this will encourage yet more fly-tipping, be it in other folks' bins or in the streets.
Personally, I believe that councils already get plenty of our hard-earned cash to deal with refuse collecting. The system that we have in Durham should work well; a green wheelie bin for garden waste, a box (or more if necessary) for recyclable items (cans, paper, glass) and a grey wheelie bin for everything else. The only problem at present is the recycling box - if it's windy on collection day stuff can get blown everywhere, including the box when empty!
A few years ago where one of my sister's used to live in the London Borough of Sutton it used to pride itself on being the Greenest borough in London, that was until recently it was found that their figures had been wrong for 5 years!
