Bradmet are making some important changes to how you can recycle. From 28 February 2017 you can put more items in your recycling waste (grey) bin. There will be no need to separate your recycling.

Softening us up for next weeks announcement of fortnightly general waste collections.

Can you put newspaper in with glass bottles?

Will it all go to landfill once Bradford Council get it or will they sort it?

The article says everything in one bin except maybe half a dozen things like polystyrene.

As you say gazzer it is inevitable we will go to 2 weekly collections very soon which I`m afraid will only be a precursor for 3 weekly I`m sure.

I thought the article said the recyclable would be collected one week and the general waste the next. Isn't that a fortnightly collection?

It will make life simple for lazy people but I still cant get my head around mixing it all together and then paying someone to hand sort it later. When you think the milkman used to collect empties and when we were kids we used to take pop bottles back to the shop for a few pennies spending money.Are we actually moving forward?

gazzer, you don't think that it is all sorted by hand? Machines do a lot of it, and if you wait a while longer the robots will do it all anyway.
If we are recycling more in future as per the new system, then fortnightly for both bins will probably suit most people.

It seems the trial in Wyke worked well, locals took it all on board and got on with it... so should we in Silsden. Be positive for a change...

Im sure in a civilised country we can recycle more AND collect general waste once a week.Im lucky I dont live in a terraced house or back to back where a stinking wheelie bin will be outside my living room window for a fortnight and im not selfish enough not to be concerned about the many across the bradford area that do.
But lets not think this is about people recycling more its a cut in a service.And then having been told diesel cars were better than petrol they are saying if I have extra household waste I should load it into my diesel car and take it to Keighley waste centre where before long it will be taken to an incinerator and burnt sending pollution into the air that we breath. The green way forward is less packaging to start with.

gazzer, Our milkman still does take away the empty bottles each time he delivers our fresh milk!
And yes the answer is for less packaging, but also no packaging that can't be recycled, anything which is biodegradable should be used to produce gas and turned in electricity.
We do not have a smelly bin in our garden because all out recyclable waste is put in a tied plastic bag before it goes in the bin.

It will probably all go in the incinerator anyway.

Sorry if my post was confusing, ALL our recyclable waste is washed before it goes in the bins, it is the general waste that is put in bags then into the green bin, which got to landfill; until the new wonderful incinerator comes on line, then it will be burnt to generate electricity.

I get the point of using bags for general waste(Grandad)

you'll probably find that the resources used in washing rubbish outweighs the benefit of recycling it.

seriously though, add up the waste of first the garden waste bags & now the blue bin inserts, how long will it take before the cost of producing & then destroying all of that is recouped?

Only IF you use fresh resources, we use the washing up water left when we have finished washing the plates etc. Or do you waste resources but using a dish washer?

This is correct.If you have a combi boiler that is not near your sink you turn the tap on.This starts a sequence where your boiler does various checks before the burner starts.Thats why it takes time for the hot water to arrive at your tap.A combi uses a lot of gas to heat hot water.Then you wash your tins out and turn your tap off.Most of the water heated up is still in the pipework.So the cost of that and if you have a water meter suddenly you are not as green as you thought you are.
But dont be put off, recycling is better than landfill anyday.

Watching ITV news tonight it featured a problem that is getting worse since Permits/Charges/Fortnightly bin collections started increasing.

The way forward which will also help the litter problem


Drinks manufacturer, Coca-Cola, has said it is in favour of a “well-designed” deposit return scheme (DRS) for Scotland after having previously been opposed to such a move. At a Holyrood event, the company said it would supports a DRS, with a spokesperson saying, “it’s already clear from our conversations with experts that the time is right to trial new interventions such as a well-designed deposit scheme for drinks containers, starting in Scotland where conversations are underway”,
