We went into work every day of the snow and ice and it took longer to do anything/get anywhere.  It would be the same for the guys collecting who have to do everything within a time limit in order to finish a round - we don't have a vacuuming system for waste!  I was really pleased that the lorries didn't try and negotiate our small street!

I decided that rather than have to spend time on finding out when and if they were coming I just wouldn't put anything out (after all that saves having to retrieve food waste bin and green box).  Plastics bag I only ever put out when full anyway (although I would have preferred to put it out before Christmas).

It is a good time to reflect on how much waste you are making and whether you could/should do anything differently!  Mrs Green at put out one dustbinful of residual waste last year! We are lucky in Ealing to have recycling banks as well as a kerbside collection.  Do you know where these are?

I am amazed at the number of people who take their car to do the shopping but wouldn't consider taking any recycling with them.  If you shop at a supermarket you will be bringing more packaging back with you than if you shop at your local butcher, baker and greengrocer.  Take that packaging back to them! Let them dispose of it rather than burden your Council and fellow residents with the costs!
