Coming ready or not!

Wheelie bins to be introduced in Tendring in June 2019, is this a good or a bad thing? Opinion is divided.

With Christmas fast approaching and all thoughts focused on the festive celebrations to come, 2018 will see the last black bag collections for most households throughout Tendring for this time of year. Personally, I welcome the introduction of wheelie bins, I hope it will reduce the amount of mess left in the wake of split bags from over enthusiastic dustbin men, seagulls and the ever-present cat raiding party’s that trawl my neighbourhood!

The most prolific argument against wheelie bins that I have heard to date is the issue of bi-weekly collections.

  1. The bins will smell more.
  2. Attract more pests.
  3. There won’t be enough room for all my waste.

Whilst the council has made a commitment to provide authorised additional refuse sacks for larger households and family’s with needs that generate more waste than usual, they have failed to provide information on the criteria to qualify through their online application process or how often you would need to apply.

Tendring District council is adamant that if you recycle all that you can then 3-4 black bags of non-recyclable waste will be generated over a two-week period. I agree that this is probably true for most households but is it practical when recycling boxes are left unemptied because one item in the box is not correct for recycling in this area?

You then get a knock-on effect with the recycling waste having to go in to general waste filling up your wheelie bin before you can get the recycling box emptied in two weeks’ time with the offending item removed. I believe we will need a transition period to alleviate this issue and educate our region what does and does not constitute suitable recycling in this area.

I fear we are only going to encourage a new acceptance of fly tipping as a way of getting rid of household general waste.

On the positive side the new wheelie bins will encourage more recycling in our region, with the latest media focus on plastics in our oceans this can only be a good thing and I agree that more needs to be done to prevent this tide of pollution across our planet.

Also, the seagulls are going to find breaking in to wheelie bins a challenge that may encourage them to go back to their natural diet of holiday makers chips and ice creams.

And the feral gangs of cats will have to disband and ask their human owners to feed them properly.

This only leaves the issue of smells attracting more pests. Myself and my family are to provide a wheelie bin deep clean service and have already started cleaning food caddy’s, recycling bins, and garden waste wheelie bins as well as providing a deep clean service to commercial customers larger bins across the region.

Registered with the environment agency and fully insured our mobile unit comes to your home on bin collection day cleaning your bin using bio-degradable, environmentally friendly cleaning products and a high-powered pressure washer. We leave your bin back on your property in a place chosen by you degreased and disinfected and smelling fresh.

my goodness, seems i posted something about these, was it last year or early this year, but my local binz2clean van has become de signed and naked lately - oh well.

personally, a watering can of hot water and cleaner plus jetwashing will clean my bins if smelly, but there you go as not everyone has outside access to them things or a local based son to do such things for me now.

my smaller wheelie bin still gets chucked down the road by our bin men, its now battered lid has been run over a few times, but despite unpteen times I phoned and reminded them at their Clacton based  temple of bin men/ladies/gender neutral operatives of waste collection that even head office has allowed me to use said bin - the other option is for the operatives to collect my black bagged rubbish from inside my property gates as I`m disabled.

roll on new big bins then for all

would take far too long to explain why we retired 10 years early and moved here,
but never regretted doing either.

Hi Jaywickian2017, please do not worry, we had to replace the van as the old one got very poorly, the new livery for the new van is on the way, Binz2Clean is still up and running and available to provide a deep clean service throughout Tendring. Prices start from as little as £2.50 per bin per clean, for more info please call 01255 740 035 or email info@binz2clean.co.uk

Lucky you. We will have to have a wheelie bin, even though the seagull proof bags worked really well. We'll still be using black bags for our waste though, so no smells from waste for us!

been allowed my smaller wheelie bin for the last few years, wouldn't be without it. keeps the flying rats, stray cats, dogs foxes and ass*oles from kicking, tearing, or making a mess on the edge of my property//

Does surprise me those that dont want one yet happily put out red / green recycling or food waste in bins though as it all has to be kept somewhere.. TBH I have two types of bins, one with wheels one without, the without is a dustbin - think about it

merry christmas.

Oh, somewhere I read that those who are not getting wheelie bins live in areas not suitable for larger lorries to collect from?

is that true?

must be the reason our roads had £6.5 million upgrades just for bin lorries - lol

According to Tendring Council if you live in a road that does not have a food collection (we don't) and if a full size bin lorry cannot get along the street (it can't) then you will not have a wheelie bin - but guess what - on their website our street is named as having wheelie bins!!!!!!!  I have already contacted the council and told them that I will be refusing to take one.

If you live above a shop (for instance), and you cannot store a wheelie bin, then you will retain the weekly black bag collection.

That means that in some streets, residents will have a mix of weekly black bags and a fortnightly wheelie bin collection service. Go figure!

Genuine Question to all.

How do you store your weekly rubbish/ black bag waste?

valid question.

Hi, for some time we had had new lorries that collect our black bin rubbish In WHEELIE Bins to pull to the lorry mounted wheelie bin collection system, so,  I would Imagine the size of bins they currently use for that will be similar to the bins we will get. 

The lorries are not "real" HGV`s but smaller collection lorries so, with that fact,  It may be the reason you are getting a wheelie bin.

Just thought, I`m sure the recycling collection guys use a wheelie bin to collect it from household collection points  just emptying into there wheelie bin for the truck to load it --- Health & safety you know - lol

Still,  I wait in anticipation and still use black bin bags in my bins, wheelie & non wheeled type, plus store them out of the sun down my North facing sideway along with both green & red recycling boxes - bad move leaving any type of waste in the sun all day eh (when we get sun that is)

So, who got one and who`s not ?

I`m still using my smaller than the ones predicted to be getting but years of abuse by "not knowing the reason why" I use it has seen it thrown down the road and its lid run over, but like a red rag to a bull, I`m STILL using it.

Another point that does make me smile Is those who cry "I CANT GET ALL MY BAGS IN" lol - RUBBISH , or do you fill it with solids- lol

 

TOP TIP.... most of your black bag waste is air, spaces between the mess you throw away - FACT

I gather the edges of the bin bag I`m changing, hold, while placing the bag on a "surface" in my case the indoor bin lid turned upside down, but press don on the bag to see air escaping and its size decreasing, then move my hands further down the gathered now freed bag and continue pressing -

Be amazed at actually how little really is in your black bin bag..

when the expelled air is out, holding the top part of the bag STILL, spin it so it winds itself down to your now decreased contents, then use that spun part to tie off,  then bag it  then bin it..

BE SURPRISED how many once bulky bags (no not you dear) you can now get in your dustbin / wheelie bin/ neighbours car / whatever.. been doing this for years..

NOW, a word in your ears.................

It now known, how some councils, after "successful" roll outs of wheelie bins on fortnightly collections now have gone on to tri weekly collections..

(more squeezing of your black bags if it comes here methinks)

So, Have you got your shiny new bin yet?

If so how Is It

Or like in Jaws, they said "we need a bigger boat"

Do wee need a bigger bin or not

TBH It bothers me not, as I got an additional dustbin that i put "odd stuff" in, mainly stuff that cant be recycled, and in days (evenings) of no wind I have got a punctured stainless burning bin on a circular stand ( the inside drum of my old washing machine and its drive pulley)

and its does the job, but I dont use it in the warmer months so, that contents get fed into the refuse waste with the rest.

And so life continues where ever you live.

Still amazed at your choice to HAVE to take it to the tip, as the refuse teams have been told NOT to collect black bag refuse on the ground - in bins or nothing -

should be fun watching the NO sayers eh

I don't have to go to the tip to dispose of black bag rubbish as I have plenty of other options closer to home.  I do however, go there once a week anyway (during the summer months) with my garden rubbish.

As far as I can see Golf Green Road should be the first area in Jaywick to get the wheelie bins, they should be delivered this week!
