    I don't live in the UK any more. It does seem to be complicated.
    Do your council send you a list of which bin is being emptied on which dates, or are all the bins outside for the 'binmen' to empty as-and-when?
    We have a calendar of dates when particular bins are collected. General waste is on a fortnightly cycle, food waste on a weekly cycle, paper and card on a fortnightly cycle, plastic on a different fortnightly cycle and garden waste on some other cycle that I'm not aware of as I don't put any out.

    Waste collection is down to each council to organise, so it will be different in different parts of the country.

    Because they all have to go in different collection vehicles, there would not be enough staff to collect all bins on the same day. We have cardboard/paper every 4 weeks, bottles every 4 weeks and general waste every 2 weeks. All on a wednesday.

    We garden waste collected every two weeks on a different day but we have to pay for this service

    Our general waste is collected by one vehicle; food, paper & card and plastic are collected by another (one vehicle), so, for example, one week we could have three bins out, general, food, plastic, collected by two vehicles - general in one; food and plastic in the other.

    You only have to pay for garden waste? Not any of the other things?

    Think garden waste is an extra charge?

    All collections are made by local councils and is free at the point of use. It is one of the services provided in our Council Tax. Recycling and land fill sites also run by the Council and paid for out of Council Tax.
